Prepping for old fence removal

Any experienced fencing company worth your time has the skills, equipment and protocol in place to remove your fence without any hassle. That said, there are a few things you can do to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible.

Tip #1 – Ensure you have proof of your right to modify the fence

If you share a fence with your neighbour, make sure you know who has the legal right to remove or alter the fence. This shouldn’t be too difficult to find out but it can safe you a good deal of time and money that would be wasted if your fencing company showed up and couldn’t perform the work until you produced those documents. Save yourself the hassle and have them ready for the first consultation.

Tip #2 – Decide if you’d like to remove your fence altogether or simply have sections of it repaired

In some cases, the fence posts may be in good condition, unlike the wire itself. In cases like this, please let your fencing specialist know before they purchase any materials for your project. This will also help them plan in regards to equipment and time allotted for your location.

Tip #3 – If a fence post is stuck, try wetting the ground

By wetting the ground shortly before your fencing specialist arrives, you’ll make it much easier for them to remove a stuck post. This can greatly reduce the amount of time spent trying to dig up an old post and get the job rolling on your site.

Take care not to wet the ground too long before your specialist arrives, however, as this will cause the post to be stuck even further. 15/30 minutes should be good enough.
