7 Questions To Ask Fencing Manufacturers In Australia Before You Buy

Fencing manufacturers in Australia face the steep challenges of making fencing products that stand up to our often harsh climate and that suit a staggering variety of applications. Choosing among these manufacturers is an equally difficult task. Here are seven questions to ask fencing manufacturers before you buy.

1. Do You Guarantee Your Products?

A fence, from the panels to the hardware, represents a significant investment. A manufacturer looking to earn your business should be confident enough in the quality of its products to stand by them for the long haul.

2. Do Your Fencing Products And Manufacturing Methods Conform To Current Standards?

In particular, look for a company that is certified to the latest version of ISO 9001, an internationally recognized standard for a company’s quality management. Bear in mind that this standard is reviewed every five years or so to ensure it reflects current manufacturing capabilities and trends.

3. How Long Have You Been In Business?


Longevity is generally a good indication of customer satisfaction. This is especially true in competitive arenas such as fencing products. A company that has been operating for decades is obviously doing a thing or two correctly with regard to quality and customer service.

4. Can You Help Me Figure Out What I Need?

Speaking of customer service: A fencing manufacturer worth your business employs and trains reps who know their products, and their applications, from post caps to gate motors and everything in between. If you are talking to a rep who is more about help than about sales, listen up: Chances are, he works for a company that cares about its reputation for service. 

5. Do You Offer Everything My Project Requires?

To save time and trouble, look for a fencing manufacturer that carries everything you need under one roof. Some fencing manufacturers even offer on-site diecasting to create the hardware you need.

6. Can You Provide References?

Ask the sales rep to show you a portfolio of past jobs to get a sense of the company’s focus and design sensibilities. Can she show you testimonials from satisfied customers?

7. Where Are Your Products Manufactured?

If your fencing project is in Australia, it makes sense to choose from among Australian fencing manufacturers. They are familiar with the particular challenges our climate presents, so they are likely to know how to meet them with materials and designs that hold up.

Not all fencing manufacturers in Australia can provide what you need. Use these questions to source the best possible products for your application.
