Planning to have a new fence installed? According to ServiceSeeking.com.au's records, the pricing trend for fencing in NSW took an unfavourable turn this year. From $65/m2 in FY14, the average cost of a fence installation job now stands at $68/m2 which equates to a 5% increase.
On the bright side, you can still get budget fencing services at $60/m2 which is the same as last year's budget price. Premium fencing rates also remained unchanged at $80/m2.
Despite the increase in average price, NSW fencers still offer the third most affordable service when compared to the other major locations in Australia. It's also important to note that fencing prices across the country generally increased. In fact, along with NSW, ACT, Qld, and Vic also saw higher average fencing installation rates this year. Meanwhile, Tas fencers charged the lowest fees.
