Hi,

Can anyone please give me some approximate guidelines as to what I should be paying for the cost of hiring scaffolding for a 4 bed semi? I need it for at least the front and rear so it might make sense to go for all 3 sides?

Having never hired scaffolding before I have no idea what would be a competitive quotation and what would be over the top. If there are regional variations, it is for a house in South London/Surrey.

Thx for any help.

Hi,

Thx for the replies.

"Herts...", would that figure of 900 plus VAT be for 1 months hire?

"Dodgy...", How do you measure the area, is it area of scaffolding boards laid or area of building wall covered? Apologies for the daft question, however, having not hired scaffolding before I am not up to speed with the protocols etc.

The price normally is for about 6-8 weeks, as this is how long a loft conversion should take. If it's any longer they might charge you a weekly rate. Which is normally a minimal price.

The 900.00 price was for a 3 bed semi.

The best thing is to ring around various companies and take it from there.

Hope that helps.

Sussex , was quoted 1k. but it was an awful awkward one that had to span a garage roof @ the side ( trellis scaffold?) and go through a pergola @ the back and another odd bit @ the front. 4 weeks hire

It depends on many things other than meterage ..how close the lorry can get to the job, does gear need to be walked through the house to back garden etc etc As allways get a few prices. most will charge hire after the initial agreed period.
meterage rates are linear metres plus one per corner x how many lifts it needs

Is that for the scaffold hire or for the house?
Must be the labour and transport costs to deliver it here.
