Chain mesh fencing is one of the most affordable fencing options you can get in the market today. Despite the relatively inexpensive nature of the chain mesh fence itself, there are several things you can do in a bid to further reduce the cost of having a chain mesh fence installed around a residential area.
Read along to find out some money-saving ideas.
Fence Manufacturers Are a Cheaper Option
As is the case with many other products, a chain mesh fence can be bought directly from the manufacturer. With all other factors remaining constant, you can be sure to get a chain mesh fence for much less from a manufacturer than what you would have to pay for it if you were to buy from a third party fence supplier.
If the manufacturer of your chosen brand of chain mesh fence has their office or outlet nearby, making a trip to their location will definitely save you some money.
However, if the manufacturer's office or outlet is far away the extra cost of transportation might inflate the final cost of the fencing material. This makes it even cheaper for you to buy the mesh fence from a third party supplier.
Remember that third party suppliers buy and transport chain mesh fences in bulk, thereby making the transportation much cheaper due to economies of scale.
Buy More than Just the Fence
You can also make significant savings by choosing to buy additional materials from the same supplier. For example, you could get a discount if you bought the chain mesh fence and the fencing posts from the same supplier rather than getting them from different suppliers.
In addition to the fencing posts, you can also 'buy' fence installation services from the same supplier.
The cost of the fence, the posts and the cost of fence installation means that you will be spending more money on the same supplier and this creates the high likelihood of getting discounted rates with every purchase.
Time Your Purchase
A large number of chain mesh fence suppliers often reduce the price of this commodity when they're looking to clear out old stock in order to make room for new stock.
You can make huge savings by purchasing a mesh fence during a clearance sale. Get to know when fence suppliers hold their clearance sales and if it is convenient for you, buy the fence then.
