- round tops and square tops fence panels?
- 2.5m or 2.3m barrier length?
- Do they offer a high-quality, heavy-duty rubber foot?
- Are double clips offered to reduce the risk of unauthorised entry?
- Will all the equipment delivered be fully serviceable and free from damage?
Answers to these questions will help you establish a good understanding of what type of service you can achieve.
Using a temporary fencing contractor that has experience with the event industry reduces the likely hood of havoc on the first day of the event build and throughout - the right equipment supplied to help complete the job in the minimum time required.
Before any arrival on-site, make sure you receive a copy of risk assessments and methods statements from the contractor. If they plan to use plant machinery, Do they have the correct licences to operate it. Make sure a copy of their employers' and public liability insurance are made available.
