Chainink Fence Material Pricing


I just got my first chainlink installation job. I have been doing chainlink for my boss for a few years, and am now moving on slowly, to do my own jobs. The job consists of 3 120'X60' slabs. It's a total of 3 courts, all with 10' high chainlink. All material is PVC coated. Everything uses top, middle, and bottom rail. Anyways, the material estimate from a vendor came out to be a whooping $39,000. For anyone with experience on the chainlink fencing trade, does this amount sound about right? Average, on the high-side, or beyond the high side? Thanks for any input/advice!

That was a huge price factor when I had some installed.

Pretty easy to find out if they're way off the charts or not. Call a second supplier and ask them what they'd charge for 1,080 linear feet of pvc coated ten foot high fencing.

At that length, even a small difference In per foot material price would make a big difference in cost.

I searched and found an online supplier that will let you price out fencing, see how it specs out for your fence.

Yep, that sounds about right to me (or at least like potentially the right ballpark) - the figures can often be pretty scary upon first receiving them haha, but as others have said there are lots of variables that can affect price dramatically
