How Much Does it Cost to Repair an Invisible Fence?

Having an invisible fence can be a great way to keep the animals on your property safe and prevent them from possibly escaping. Essentially, an invisible fence works by providing an electric, invisible barrier around your property. This barrier only affects animals wearing a specialized collar that can pick up the electric feed. If an animal wearing the collar comes too close to the boundary of the invisible fence, it will receive a harmless, yet effective, electrical shock that will prevent the animal from going past the barrier. Over time, most animals will learn to stay within the confines of the property.

Possible Invisible Fence Problems

One of the drawbacks to having an invisible fence, however, is that it can develop problems over time. One of the most common issues is developing what are known as "breaks" in the barrier. These breaks occur when the electrical current becomes weak and is no longer effective. In the event that an animal were to find out about the break, it is possible that it could escape, thus defeating the purpose of the invisible fence in the first place. Fortunately, breaks can be easily detected by a professional with the right tools. For this reason, it is recommended that all homeowners with invisible fences take the time to have the fence inspected at least once per year. It's a small price to pay to keep your pets protected for a long time to come.

Cost of Invisible Fence Repair

In general, it costs about $300 to repair a break in an invisible fence. Of course, this cost may be higher if your fence has several breaks or if there are other issues with the fence itself. By taking the effort to get quotes from different companies, you will be able to compare prices to save money.

Choosing a Company

Aside from price, you will also want to ensure that the company you choose for the repair is well-trusted in the community. Check out some third-party reviews to see what others, who have hired their services in the past, have written about them. With a little research, you may be able to narrow down your selection and feel confident that you are hiring a company that is experienced and will get the job done right.
