I doubt that you need a contractor, this is the type pf work anyone with the strength and a few tools could do. You are looking at 2 to 3 hours work plus the cost to haul away and dump. I would do it for $ 150 -200 plus the cost of dumping (if your muncipality charges)

With a hammer, a HighLift Jack, and a chain, it should be quick work.



Nothing like leverage.

Why are you getting rid of the fence (don't take that the wrong way, I don't like fences)? If it is still in good condition, there is a chance that someone else would be able to use it. I suggest advertising it on Craigslist as "free fence, you remove and haul".

I did that with a pile of dirt, and got alot of responses, then when I thought about it, all of these people are total strangers, and getting them on your property to check things out could lead to a future burglary. So here I am with a pile of dirt still...

Where are you located? That might have some impact on the prices you get.
