    Hi All,

    Im going to be removing a fence in prep for my development (yay!) and putting up a temporary fence. Can anyone recommend a good company (i.e. they are honest and not super expensive) to rent about 40m of temp fence in Perth?

    Will probably only need it for 4-6 weeks.

    Thanks!!!!!

    Can't recomend anyone (but google), imagine it would cost a bit to hire compared to rigging up something yourself (DIY), perhaps with materials that can be used later on.

    Without seeing site layout, requirements, I'd consider a temp rural type fence, similar to whats used for deer if you need hight.
    I.e;
    2.4mtr (8ft) Star Pickets (can be used later for many things, like trees).
    Cheap chook wire (or other) that can be used later for climbing plants etc.
    If you need privacy, run wire strands, twitch shade cloth to it, many other uses later.

    For access points along it (gates if req), after installing cut wire down side of one star picket for opening, use wire to twitch it open/close.

    Prob get all materials cheaper from a rural trader than bunnys.

    Last time I needed some I bought it at bunnings then sold it on via gumtree. Lost minimal money so worked out a lot cheaper then hiring, was about the same time frame
