    Moving wooden post costs


    How much would it cost to put 2 wooden posts into the ground? This is for a banner for advertisement for our nursery, we currently do have them but they need to be moved as the new banner is bigger.

    "Depending on the size of the posts i.e. height, day rate would be around £120 a day for just one day. It also depends on the type of ground to be dug out and existing holes to be refilled and levelled off, which could take longer."

    "Depends on where the new banner is being fixed, and materials required to fix post into ground.
    The price will also depend on if you want the old post removed at the same time."

    "Cost will depend on the amount of concrete to hold the post. The reason I say this is banners are like sails in the wind so depending on the size of the banner to how far apart the posts are and how deep for safety. I would not want it blowing down in the first gust of wind. Also, one other thing to consider is how long have the other posts been in the ground. This would depend on whether I would recommend new posts (Were they treated? Bedded in concrete? Or just piled in to soil? Is the base of post in good condition?)
    If you can give me size of your banner and dimensions of posts I will cost it to the penny for you.

    Here to help,

    "Hi, i would say around £50-£60. If the old post's are concreted in, which they should be, they will have to be broken out with a jack hammer."
