Our fence was just installed and I want to let you know that the installation crew did a fantastic job. They were the consummate professionals; the complete installation was finished in record time, with minimal disturbance to our yard. Every detail was seen to in a pleasant manner. I would recommend Reliable Fence Boston to anyone considering a new fence.

Many thanks to the two men that installed my 4' stockade fence. They did a very professional job and did not stop -- in all the heat -- until they finished. I'm most appreciative.

Your crew finished their work about half an hour ago, and we could not be happier. The fence looks wonderful, the site was nicely cleaned up, and the crew was always both friendly and professional. Thank you so much for an excellent job!

In March, we setup appointments with three well-known, highly rated (Angie's List) fencing companies, one of which was Reliable. We met with Dana, on April 8 and went over in detail, what we wanted. We discussed only one location that was to be fenced to grade and only one location that the fence was to be angled to the outside of a tree. All stipulated within the contract. We asked Dana if either of us should be home at the time of installation. He recommended that someone be there on the morning that the crew arrived to walk through the job and any special instructions. When Dana went to leave, he made a point twice to mention our job is the kind of job they like to get because the land is level, the fencing is straight making it an easy job for the installers. We based our decision to go with this company because of our previous positive experience with Reliable, research on Angie's List, and because Dana quoted a lead-time of three weeks from the receipt of deposit, which was about two weeks quicker than the other two companies. I mailed our deposit on April 9 and heard nothing. Over a week later, I contacted the company to see if someone might be able to confirm that we were on the job list. I was initially quoted the week of May 13 for install. When I mentioned that one of the reasons we chose to go with Reliable was because Dana quoted a three week lead-time, the scheduler put me on hold and came back to say he could have a crew start the week of May 6. If something opened up sooner, they would call us. He finished by stating we should expect a call a day or two ahead of when the crew would start the week of May 6. Because we chose to remove the existing fence ourselves, we were working on the May 6 date to complete the removal. They called us early on April 29 letting us know that a crew would be out that morning to start the install. Had we received the call even a day ahead, as we had been told we would, we would have removed the remainder of the fence. However, it came as we were walking out the door to go to work, so my husband let the caller know that that we needed to stick with the originally scheduled install date for the week of May 6.

We got a call to confirm that the install would begin on Monday, May 6 and to expect the crew between 8:30-9am, depending on traffic. We came home the first night to a backyard that was partially fenced in and for the most part, everything was as expected. However, when we got home on Tuesday, May 7, everything had turned the other way. The fence was installed. However, the very first piece of fencing that came off the house on the driveway side was angled into the yard from where it attaches to the house. As per the contract and all discussions leading up to the install, this piece of fencing should have run straight-off the house. It is visibly noticeable and isn't what was agreed to. The gate that was installed has a 3"+ gap on the latch-side between the gate and the post. It is very obvious that the post was installed at the wrong location causing the gap. Again, very noticeable. One of the posts at the back of the property had a 1x3 piece of wood on the outside of the fence supporting it. The 1x3 piece of wood was positioned on our neighbor's property and obviously couldn't be kept there. Despite the land being level, the front fence facing the street was fenced in an upward staggered fashion to the post, resulting in a significant gap between the bottom of the fence and the land. We found our brand new hose to have a huge gaping hole in it. Normally, I probably wouldn't have cared, but we just purchased the hose and it was completely intact and worked fine that morning when we watered our lawn. Additionally, we spent a good hour picking up paper waste and a lot of wood fence pieces (big and small) that were strewn everywhere throughout the yard. Excess crushed stone that was brought in for the installation of the posts was dumped all over the backyard and while trying to rake up all the crushed stone, we pulled a piece of grass roots and all, away from the fence to reveal a post hole that had obviously been dug in error, and rather than refill the hole, they stuffed the piece of grass over the top.

I contacted Dana and heard nothing for three days. After being passed off and hearing no response after leaving multiple messages - it became pretty obvious that this company just takes your money upfront and has no intent of providing or following through with quality work or good customer service. Bottom-line, we regret our decision to give Reliable Fence our business. Think twice before using this company!!

Just came by to let you know that we are very happy with our recent fence installation. The installers did a great job. I also wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your salesperson. He was always on time, person, professional, patient, and knowledgeable. It's not that often you work with someone with that level of professionalism.

Just a quick review to let you know how happy I am and how wonderful the new fence looks! The installers did an excellent job and deserve to be commended. Not only did they do a fantastic job, they took care to ensure that the majority of my plants were not damaged during their work - something exceedingly difficult. I very much appreciate the extra effort.

The fence is fantastic. You guys did an amazing job building a fence on my slopped property and I could not be happier! The guys that worked at my house for two days in bitter cold conditions were true gentlemen and made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process, and for this I am grateful to them. Please pass along my thanks.

I want to thank you again for such a great experience with Reliable Fence. You were the ONE fence company that had the unique combination of being trustworthy, priced right and competent. If you ever need a reference for a prospective client, please DO NOT HESITATE to call me. I doubt you will need my 2 cents as your excellent reputation is the reason I called you in the first place. It must be gratifying to know that people "in the business" (i.e. landscapers & other fence contractors) continue to sing your praises
