Special note to home owners

As the employment situation in Australia changes more people enter the fencing industry.

Please make sure the fencing company you select is experienced and check that they have a current ABN number or Registration number (depending on which state you are in).

Also note that requests for quotes increase in the lead up to Christmas and this can cause delays.

It is also a time when scams are most active.

Please report any scam to us.

Aluminium pool fencing

Home owners and Fencing companies please make sure aluminium pool fencing complies with the pool fencing code, some aluminium fence panels are great for garden fencing but not suitable for pool fencing.

Home owners

Be aware that some fence listings on the internet are advertising themselves as fencing businesses (they are actually referral services) when you complete your personal information they then sell it to other companies. So be careful how much information you give them and ask them if they are a referral service. Fencingonline has registered members that you contact directly by phone, email or through their web site we do not on sell information. All membership fees go towards improving and keeping this web site up to date.

Fencing companies

Be aware when buying leads from referral services that these leads may have been on sold to many companies, maybe you can ask them how many times a lead is on sold.

Home owners

Be aware that most fencing companies will give you a free quote.
They may also ask you for a deposit if you wish them to go ahead with the work.
We also recommend you obtain a written quote detailing the work to be done and the terms and conditions it will be done under and the length of time the fence is guaranteed.
