Fencing Business: Supply and Installation of Fencing

This fencing business operates from a home office based North of the river, and might suit a number of buyers including a FIFO worker(s) wishing to relocate back to Perth. It specialises in the supply and installation of boundary fencing (approx.50%), Asbestos removal (approx. 25%), pool fencing, retaining walls and gates in aluminium and steel. The business also supplies and installs timber fencing. Most of the work is undertaken within a 20km radius around the Owner’s residence. The products are marketed to customers via the website, internet advertising and via social media. A large amount of business is from referrals and repeat customers.
The business has built a solid reputation as a quality operator in the Northern Suburbs. They offer householders, builders and developers exceptional quality and value for money on a vast range of boundary fencing, asbestos removal, pool fencing, gate products and retaining walls. They pride themselves on having a high standard of workmanship. The business’s sales are driven not just from the desire of people to improve the look and security of their properties, but also by Government regulations requiring that properties and pools be fenced.

There is a diverse customer and referral base including builders, developers, retaining and Colorbond suppliers and residential customers. As the business has been operating for several years, it has built up a clientele of repeat customers. The broad process is to provide an onsite quote. A signed quote is needed to confirm the job, then once the job is confirmed, the necessary materials are ordered through the various suppliers, then the installation is undertaken. It is the responsibility of customers to obtain neighbour’s signatures, survey pegs (if appropriate) and permits from the local shire if applicable. The business provides the customers with guidance in these areas, based on experience.

His main roles in the business are to quote jobs, order materials, schedule jobs, general administration and undertaking installation work in conjunction with subcontractor(s).
