Fence Removal Service Portland Oregon

Time to Remove that old Fence?

Old fences can be an eyesore but they can also serve many important functions.  Taking down an old fence isn’t really that hard but then you have to find a way to get rid of it.  The fence removal is the hard part.  Even if you have a pickup, you can easily spend a whole day, maybe even two driving back and forth to the dump.  Also, when removing a fence you may have to purchase tools you didn’t already have.  Then there is the disposal fees.

The good news is Ernie’s Wagon Junk Removal is here to take care of all your fence removal needs.  Our prices are so low, its not worth doing the job yourself.  Contact us and you maybe surprised how affordable our Fence removal service is.

Factors Involved in Price Difference for:

Fence Boards and Rails Disposal

There are basically two factors for the price difference, the weight per linear foot and the amount of labor to get the material into my truck.  Here are some things that I look for when deciding on a rate.

  • The amount of material per linear foot

Some fences have fence boards closer together or more overlap.

  • How wet the fence wood is

Fence wood on a hot dry summer day can weight significantly less than fence wood in the rainy winter months.

  • How old the material is

Old more rotten wood can be significantly lighter than new fresh wood.

  • Where is the fence material located? Fence removal cost is always less when it’s stacked by the curb.

2- Fence Post and Concrete Plug Disposal

  • I used to have a set price for fence post plug disposal but then disposed of posts and plugs that were over a hundred pounds each.  The price is solely determined by the weight of the concrete plug.  Usually the cost is the lower price stated above.

3- Fence Post and Concrete Plug Removal

Fence post removal is much more affordable when I can pull the posts out with my post puller without digging. The only times I can’t use my post puller is:

  • There are obstacles in the way.
  • The wood is so rotten that I cant pull the plug out by the post and will have to dig around it to get it out.
  • When the concrete plug is so big the puller will not get it out.

Can I Cut the Fence Posts and leave the Concrete in the Ground?

As you can see pulling posts out can be pretty expensive, especially if I have to start digging.  Most of the time my customers have me cut the posts as close as I can to the concrete plug as possible.  Most of the time the new fence posts can be offset so you can work around the old plugs in the ground.  It is important to contact a fence contractor to verify that it’s ok to leave the old concrete plugs in the ground.

What Do You Do with The Fence Junk?

For wood fences:

If the fence doesn’t have any paint or stain on it then I might decide to, separate the posts (Posts are not recyclable because they are pressure treated) and take it to a wood recycler like JB Wood Recyclers.  If its a medium to small amount of fence material I will likely take it to Metro Transfer Station.

All other Fence junk goes to Metro transfer station.  Metro will also take metal for recycling.

This is by far the cheapest way to get rid of fence material.  Notice the material was put in an area on the driveway where I can back my trailer right up to it.
