    Quote for new fence

    Quote for new fence 2nd Mar 11 at 5:53 PM

    Any views on this quote to remove and replace our garden fence in SW London please?

    The job is to remove our very rickety old fence and posts, no significant clearance of plants or roots involved. Supply and install 12 metres of pine, pressure treated closeboard fence. 1.8 metre high including gravel board. The fence will be assembled on site, not panels, due to restricted access to the property. We've asked for a top rail to finish off the fence.

    The quotes we have so far are:

    Quote 1: 780 excl VAT, so 936 in total
    Quote 2: 700 incl VAT but excluding waste disposal (we would have to take the old wood to the tip).

    We are pressed for time so although I would normally get several more quotes in, I'd appreciate views on which quote is more normal - obviously there's a bit of difference between them.
