Renting vs. Buying

Renting a temporary fence 1 may be more convenient if you don’t have a place to store it after you’re done using it, or won’t have a need for it after the first use. If you regularly have a need for temporary fences 1, buying will save you money in the long run.

Buying temporary chain link fences costs $120 per 6’ x 12’ panel and $26 per base, or $1,420 for a 6’ x 60’ ready package. Flexible temporary fencing material with posts can usually be bought for $30-$40 per 3’ x 100’ roll.

Rent Rates

Most rental companies offer monthly rental periods, but you can find terms of per day or per week. Some offer multi-month periods and minimums. Most prices are based on the length of fence you require: $1.65-$1.85 per linear foot on average.

Chain link fencing rentals typically cost $24 per 6’ x 12’ panel and $4 per base for 1 month, $12 per panel and $2 per base for each additional month.

Size

Common sizes are heights of 4’, 6’, 8’, and 12’. Widths are typically 6’ or 12’. Count on taller andwider fencing costing more than smaller, narrower fencing.

Materials and Types

Most temporary fencing 1 rental options are chain link or wire fences built in standard panel styles. Some fencing is available with posts dug into the ground. This is best for long-term use, and costs more to cover the labor that goes into digging and installing the posts. Expect to pay a monthly fee of $115-$120 per 6’ x 12’ panel of chain link fencing with in-ground posts.

Rolls of plastic temporary fences 1 can be rented for $0.10 per linear foot.

Event Fencing

Event fencing is usually used for crowd control at events. These barriers can be rented for shorter terms, such as 4-hour or daily rental periods. If you rent for multiple days in a row, you may be able to receive a discount.

Barricade (“bike rack”) fences cost $10-$15 per panel per day. Steel security fencing and white picket rail fencing both usually cost $25 per panel per day.

Enhancement and Improvement Costs

Accessories and Additions

Many rental companies will give you the option of adding access gates and padlocks to your rental package. Gates of 6’ height cost $140-$500, with 4’ wide gates being at the lower end of that spectrum, and 24’ gates being at the higher end. Padlocks cost $9 each.

Accessories like fencing clamps are often already included in your package since they are usually necessary for guaranteeing a fence’s safety and stability.

Sandbags

Sand bags are sometimes required to weigh down the bases of some temporary fences 1, such as chain link fences. These typically cost $6 each to purchase.

Shade Cloth

Shade cloths and privacy-screens can be added to your fencing to block harsh sunlight and visibility. Typical prices are $1.10 per linear foot, to $50 flat for 6’ x 12’ panels.
