In a hurry? We offer Same Day Delivery!

Our Same Day Delivery service is a service that we are very proud of.  It is this service which sets us apart from the many other fencing manufacturers and distributors across the UK. It shows that we are there when you need it most, with large stock holdings across our Head office and Regional Fencing Centres.

How Does Same Day Delivery Work?
Same Day Delivery is available when your standard product order has been completed before 10am. As we offer many different customisable options within our product ranges; including size, powder coating and accessories, this means that some orders with customisation are not eligible for Same Day Delivery.
Same Day Delivery is available through both our website and 24/7 Sales Line, so we are there for you if you need any advice about Same Day Delivery or any of our other service and products.

What are the other Options?
If you are not looking for Same Day Delivery, there are various different options available.

Next Day Delivery:
Our Next Day Delivery option is very popular with both our online and telephone orders and is available when your order is placed before 12 noon.  Shipping quotes are based on the products purchased, delivery time selected and shipping destination. Quotes are available using the online shipping calculator or by talking to one of our expert sales team and we will always endeavour to meet your requirements.

Express Delivery:
Our Express Delivery option guarantees that your product will arrive within three working days.

Click & Collect:
We also offer Click & Collect as part of our delivery options, allowing you to arrange the collection of your own fencing products. Although this is an online based service, we are also able to arrange collection over the phone.

If you require further information regarding our delivery options or any other services  we provide, please feel free to call us on 01283 512 111.

Thinking about Hire?

The Hire System
First Fence have a brilliant range of products which are available to hire, including Temporary Fencing panels.  Temporary Fencing panels are used in many different locations, including road and construction works as well as events and festivals. Here is a brief explanation of the process you will go through when hiring from us.

The Initial Steps
The first thing we will do when we find out that you are interested in a hire product is find out exactly what you need the product for. This way we can help you to ensure that hiring the product is the best solution for your needs.

Pricing Breakdown
As hire is not available to request via our website, you will need to call our Sales Team to give a quote; you will then be able to place the order. Here is a quick break down of the costs involved in our hiring process. Quotes are completely free and have no obligation.

Delivery and Collection Cost
The delivery and collection cost is the price that we charge for delivering the products to site and then recollecting them. These will usually be two separate charges - the delivery charge will normally be payable upfront and the collection charge will usually be payable at the end of your contract.

Minimum Hire Term and Weekly Rate

When you first enquire about your order you will be given a minimum hire period. The minimum hire period will usually be payable upfront and all subsequent weeks will be charged on a weekly basis. This means that you can keep the product for as long as you need them without having to worry about your hire contract running out.

First Fences’ Flexible Hire Service – Ideal for road works and construction projects.

Summer is the time when most road works and construction projects get into full swing. This means that the areas being developed need to be appropriately cordoned off and separated from the general public.

This is done using a variety of different products including,

  • Plastic Pedestrian Barriers
  • Crowd Control Barriers
  • Temporary Fencing
  • Water Filled Road Barriers
  • Safety Signs, Covers & Cones

Predominantly, these are done using a hire service, which is a cost effective solution with no large initial outlay. Hire is also popular because when the products are no longer needed, you will not need to cover storage costs.

First Fence Flexible Hire Service
Whether you are looking for long or short-term hire, we are able to offer a flexible hire plan. All fencing products will be supplied brand new and are suitable for both construction sites and outdoor events. We offer a competitive hire rate based on the number of panels required per week, plus a delivery and collection charge. Rates start from:

Fencing Type
Hire Starting Rate (per week)
Temporary Fencing
Crowd Control Barriers
Plastic Barriers
Water-Filled Barriers

For more information, please call us on 01283 512 111.
