I have a custmer that has 133' of 6' fencing she wants taking out and replaced with new treated with metal posts. There is also 1 gate that needs to be installed. If anyone could help me I would appreciate it.

    Call a couple fencing contractors or fencing suppliers and ask them how much they would charge to do it.Just don't tell them you are going to do it.Just explain the job requirements and ask them if they can give you a ballpark on how much it would be.Tell them you are shopping around for for your grandma or something.But if you have never done this type of work before..be sure you know what you are doing before going about it.A customer should not have to pay for our mistakes and slower work while we are learning on the job so charge accordingly.The experts can charge more than you should on your 1st try at it.
