Need to get a timber fence put up on my block.
My neighbour has given me a quote but thought i would get my own.
Can anyone recommend who they used for their timber fencing? Any is it worth getting a few quotes?
For 37.5 meters, my half came to $929.50.

Hi Snistr, We are using a company call PY Fencing. They are a family company with exellent customer service. They were the only one we could find that would back there work for 5 years. Of course conditions apply. They were also cheaper then the other ones taht quoted. But make sure you check on the types of materials they are going to use. They should be itemised on the quote. You will need to ensure that all teh quotes are using the same materilas other wise a quote that looks cheap may be using sub standard materials.

I agree with Hallam Fencing . Neat job and good price,too. My friends in The Chase at Berwick had theirs done with Hallam. I got a good quote,too.

We used Taylor Fencing in Bayswater - 37.70 metres - 1620mm High T/Pine Paling Fence - $1357.20. We have a road on the other side, so unfortunately no neighbours to go halves with, but from the looks of it, I think they would be pretty competitive. They were super quick too.

I agree with Al - we have just got quotes for our fences from about four or five different companies - they all came in at around the same price (only at most $50 difference)
We just went with the ones that our neighbours went with so that we knew then the fences would all look the same - they seem to be good but I can't remember the name off the top of my head.
After 2 false starts, a year living overseas, two more world trips and 3 years of uncertainty we are now starting the build process again - hopefully for real this time!

We just had Danny @ Cardinia Fencing do ours... Damn nice job too.. The bit I loved was the fact there was not a single piece of offcut left on the property at all. $44 p/metre
Others that have used HF, I have seen their blokes in MW and the amount of off cuts was extraordinary. I don't know if others that have used HF have had to do a clean up after them, so I can't say if it is usual practice.
But it was nice to have a neat and clean job, seeing the others.....

Yes, wouldn't hesitate to recommend Keech Fencing. I think he's in Bayswater, but we live in Bundoora and he came to us. Due to council wankiness, we had to get three different fencing contractors to do the 3 different sides to our fence - the fence by Keech Fencing was by far the best fence - no comparison.
