Central Fencing Terms and Conditions

By accepting a quote from Nigel Broadbridge Contracting Limited (“Central Fencing”) or engaging us to work on an hourly rate basis you accept the following terms & conditions:

  • Materials remain the property of Central Fencing until paid in full. 

  • Invoices will be emailed to you at the completion of the work, or we may issue an interim invoice at the end of the month as a progress claim if the work will be carried out over a period of more than one calendar month.  The due date for payment will be stipulated on the invoice.   Please pay your invoice by the due date to avoid any penalty charges.

  • Interest will accrue at the rate of 12% per annum from the due date to the date of payment.  You will be liable to Central Fencing for all costs incurred in the recovery of overdue invoices including but not limited to debt recovery costs and legal fees.  

  • If invoices remain unpaid after the due date without a payment arrangement or immediately on default by you under any payment arrangement, a debt collection agency may be engaged. 

  • If your job is quoted and the scope of work changes from that set out in your quote we may require a price variation, and if a price variation cannot be agreed we may decline to complete the job at the originally quoted price, and you will remain liable for work carried out to the point of termination.

  • A deposit may be required before we start work.

  • It is your responsibility to ensure we know about any onsite covenants related to the fencing; we take no liability for building a fence that is outside of these conditions.

  • Please be aware that the wood we price is NOT kiln dried as this is cost-prohibitive – you are likely to experience some shrinking, cracking, and warping of the timber as it naturally dries. If this is an issue, we suggest you consider a steel fence style.

  • It is your responsibility to locate and mark with paint on the ground the locations of all underground services (unless agreed in writing).  We will not be liable to you and you indemnify us if we damage any unmarked underground service.

  • In our pricing, we make allowance for the time to establish machinery and transport materials to the job site on one occasion only. Should any timing or onsite conditions require us to dis-establish and re-establish machinery and transport materials you will be liable for the additional costs including time spent, on an hourly rate basis.

  • We assume that your site is secure from the public and traffic.  Should any site security/public exclusion or traffic management be required then we would require a price variation, and if a price variation cannot be agreed we may decline to complete the job at the originally quoted price and you will remain liable for work carried out to the point of termination

  • We will make every effort not to damage surrounding vegetation/lawn/gardens, but due to the proximity of some fences there may be some damage caused.  We will not be liable to you and you indemnify us in respect of any damage to vegetation, lawn and gardens that are in close proximity to work areas.

 

Boundary Fences 

  • If your fence is a boundary fence, it is your responsibility to collect any contribution from your neighbour.  We will invoice you for the entire job and you will pay us in full.

  • In the absence of boundary pegs, we assume the old fence is the legal boundary.  We will not be liable to you and you indemnify us in all respects if the fence is not on the legal boundary.

  • Should any neighbourly disputes arise while we are building the fence that requires us to stop work or affects our workflow then we reserve the right to charge for the extra time this has cost us.
