As a fence rental company, we are obviously biased towards renting vs buying a fence as a short term solution. We do, however, recognize that there are instances when buying a fence would be advantageous. So, should you rent or buy a fence for your next special event?
Event coordinators should consider the pros and cons of each. We believe there are more advantages to renting. One of the benefits is that a temporary fence rental company will perform all the setup for you. You would need your own staff to show up early to do the setup if you owned your own fence. This would result in higher staff pay.
Having your own fence also requires extra storage space when it’s not in use. Fencing material, barricades, and the tarp that goes over some of the fencing require massive amounts of space. Do you have that kind of room available in your warehouse? Furthermore, you will also need to rent a truck to transport the fencing material to the event location and back.
