How do you remove a light pole?
If all you have to lift a light pole with is a chain, triple-wrap the chain around the pole as high as you can reach. Hold the pole while your lifting machine raises slowly, and allow it to pull the chain up the pole to where it will catch on the fixture flare. Only then should you release the pole.
How much is it to replace a lamp post?
Professional contractors charge an average of $970 to install a lamp post and require about 13 hours of labor. Most of this cost is labor, so location is the primary cost factor. The cost also increases the further the lamppost is from the house, especially when the power lines are underground.
