Fence Removal in Chula Vista


In many parts of the country, the backyard fence is a staple fixture of most suburban homes. 


Most of us remember the often hilarious scenes that took place at the backyard fence of the fictional character Tim Taylor in the popular sitcom Home Improvement with his neighbor Wilson. And throughout America, fences provide a degree of privacy while allowing us to clearly define our outdoor space.


But fences also get old, begin to sag, and – in some cases – fall over completely. 


Whether yours has gotten to that extreme or you’re simply looking to replace it before that occurs, getting rid of all the old fence materials and debris can be challenging.



New Call-to-action


Many Homeowners Must Often Decide Whether to Remove Their Fence or Not


There are several reasons why a homeowner might have to remove an existing fence. 


Perhaps the most common reason is simply to replace it with a new fence. Traditional wood fences do not last forever, although in climates such as the one we enjoy here in Chula Vista – 61 sunny days per year! – they do tend to last a bit longer than, say, in Reno, Nevada. 


In fact, as one fencing contractor has noted


“When properly maintained — which includes replacing individual planks and boards as needed — a well-built wooden fence can last in good condition up to 20 years or more.”


When homeowners do decide to remove their old fence, there are a couple of important considerations to keep in mind. The first being the clean up afterwards. 


For fence removal, Chula Vista residents have to figure out what they’re going to do with all the old fence boards, gates, hardware, old concrete footings, and other debris. This is not a waste disposal task that will be solved with a residential waste bin.


In addition, installing a new fence brings up issues such as permits and height restrictions for residents with the city limits of Chula Vista.


Another consideration is who’s going to do all the work?


Taking down and dismantling your old fence is something most homeowners are most likely capable of managing on their own, or with the help of a friend or family member. Installing a new, replacement fence? Maybe not so much.


The Best Way to Remove an Old Fence


Before a homeowner can go about hiring a contractor to build a new fence or, in some cases, simply install new fence panels, the old fence will have to be removed. 


Doing this part of the job yourself will not only save you a great deal of money on labor but can also save you money on old fence disposal. However, a question most homeowners might ask at this point is,

“What is the best way to remove old wood fence panels and other components?”


Part of the answer rests on what type of fence one has. 


More than likely, you’ll have a traditional wooden fence composed of typical, eight-foot long panels of pickets mounted to backer rails on wood posts. Others may have chain-link fences, although this is not as common, especially in backyards. 


yard waste removal guide


To remove an old wood fence, start with the vertical boards, or pickets.


  • Use a hammer to knock each board away from the frame, or backer rails.
  • Next, use the claw end to remove the nails.
  • Then, stack the boards in neat piles ready to haul away.


Next, you will need to tackle the posts and, most likely, the cement footings.


The trick with fence posts is to find a safe way to lift them up and away from the ground. But they are installed to stay in the ground and withstand side-to-side motion. One relatively easy method is offered by the folks at Family Handyman magazine’s website,


“Screw a piece of scrap 2×4 to the post a couple of inches from the ground, put a landscape timber alongside as a fulcrum, and use a long metal bar as a lever. Just stand on the bar, and the post and concrete footing will usually pop right out of the ground.”


Once you’ve managed to remove and stack up all the fence boards, posts, concrete footings, and assorted hardware, you can move forward with installing your new fence.


Removing a Metal or Chain Link Fence: A Step-by-Step Guide


If your residence happens to have a metal fence in the back or side yards, you may wonder if it is possible for you to remove metal fence materials yourself.


The good news is that, with the right tools and proper gloves, most anyone can successfully remove chain link fence components, including those steel posts. Here is a simple checklist to guide you through the process should you decide to do it yourself.


Step 1: Remove clamps from a corner post

  • The chain link fencing is typically attached to the fence post with brackets fastened with a nut and bolt. Loosen the bolts and remove the brackets.


Step 2: Cut the fence ties and detach the chain link

  • Using a small bolt cutter or wire cutter, cut the wire fence ties or metal strapping that holds the chain link fencing to the top rail, then bend the wire ties back.
  • Try to cut the fence into sections every 15 to 20 feet to make removal and disposal easier.
  • At corners, there may be a cap attached to the top rail. Remove the nut and bolt holding them in place. After removing the cap, the rail can be twisted apart.


Step 3: Remove the fence posts

  • If the posts are set in concrete in dirt, the process for removal will be similar to that for wooden fence posts. 
  • If they are mounted in a concrete or asphalt surface, then cutting the posts flush with the ground using a grinder wheel, reciprocating saw, or a hacksaw may be necessary. 



Finishing Up the Removal Process: Getting Rid of the Debris


When it comes to removing ugly chain link fences and old, rotting wood fences, the end result is pretty much the same: you’ll have stacks and piles of old fencing materials that you need to get rid of. 


For most homeowners in Chula Vista, before they can get to the work of installing new wood fences this debris will need to be loaded up, hauled away, and properly disposed of. And, unlike taking down an old fence, this is not a suitable DIY job unless you have a suitable vehicle.


And do you really want to take the time to do all the heavy lifting and hauling?


Besides, most Chula Vista residents, despite their best intentions, would likely be hard-pressed to know where to take that type of junk material anyway.


The good news is that you don’t have to!


A quick call to Junk King San Diego Downtown will take care of all your old fence removal needs and concerns. Not only will we take your old fence debris to the right place and ensure that it’s all disposed of properly, but we’ll also do all the heavy lifting.

Guide to Junk Hauling in Chula Vista


Sometimes, when it comes to junk hauling, it can seem that having a real-life superhero handy would be a real benefit. 


Large, bulky junk items like old furniture or used appliances that  no longer work can be a real pain to move around, let alone load into a pickup truck bed or even a small flat-bed trailer. But if you had Clark Kent from Smallville helping out… Well, heavy junk removal would be a breeze!


However, real life means no super-human strength to capitalize on. Just super junk hauling service. 


If you call on Junk King San Diego Downtown to come to your rescue, that is!


We understand that junk hauling in Chula Vista can be demanding and challenging. But the best and easiest way to deal with the arch villains of junk removal is to rely on the experience and the expertise of Junk King’s junk hauling professionals.


So, when it comes to junk hauling – especially in Chula Vista – let Junk King San Diego Downtown be your junk removal superheroes!

What You Should Know About Junk Removal in Chula Vista


One of the first things you need to know about effective junk removal and rubbish disposal in Chula Vista is that you don’t have to do a great deal of online searching. 


That’s right. Instead of typing into your phone random searches like, “getting rid of old furniture near me” you can simply call the certified experts in junk removal, Junk King. In fact, if you’re using your smartphone anyway, you can simply go to our website and book a session with us online.


Which brings us to one other thing you need to know about junk removal in Chula Vista: reliability.


Too many junk haulers talk about their responsiveness and quick turn-around service. But the truth is that many of them will leave you waiting all day for a truck to show up, after forcing you to agree to a six or eight hour time window for service.


Not with Junk King San Diego Downtown.


The good news here is that we show up on time, as promised, and we only ask you for a two-hour time window. Our goal is to work with you to facilitate your schedule, not ours. 

And one more thing you should know about getting junk removal in Chula Vista with Junk King: our great pricing.


What are the Costs Associated with Trash Removal Services


Some junk removal and hauling firms have several types of pricing schemes depending on the type of junk you have for them to pick up. 


For example, they may charge one amount for home junk removal services, while charging a different type of fee for construction cleanup costs. Not only that, but some junk removal firms will also charge you by the weight of your junk load. And while that may seem fair, it won’t seem so fair if you’re trying to get rid of concrete rubble or large steel junk items.


At Junk King, we do things a bit differently when it comes to the costs associated with junk and trash removal services. 


For example, we only charge by the amount of space your junk – any kind of junk – takes up in our trucks. So, six cubic yards of dirt and rocks from your landscaping project will cost you the same as six cubic yards of old newspapers, magazines, and other paper waste. 


This is not only equitable pricing for you, but it is also a part of our fair and transparent pricing approach to everything we do at Junk King San Diego Downtown.


And one more thing!


We believe in providing every customer with a free, no-obligation estimate before we come out to pick up your junk and rubbish. And we guarantee to beat any other junk hauling firm’s written estimate within our service area. 


Now that’s something to know!

How to Hire a Good Junk Removal Service


Junk hauling


Sometimes your junk is made up of old appliances, car parts, large scrap metal items, and other materials that would be better off being recycled or at least disposed of at a junkyard. At least there your items will likely be reused, repurposed, or processed as scrap metal.


But instead of grabbing your phone again and looking for “junkyard near me” you should look for the best junk removal company in your area. 


We can save you time and effort by simply stating that we believe Junk King San Diego Downtown is the best junk removal service for Chula Vista and the immediate downtown San Diego region. 


However, knowing how to hire a good junk removal service goes a bit beyond simply calling on the one name you happen to remember!


Here is a brief overview of things to look for when hiring a good junk removal service:



Excellent Customer Service


Word of mouth referrals and online reviews can quickly reveal whether a company excels in the area of customer service. And, as a service business, it should! So, you should definitely check them out before making a decision.


Ideally you will find and hire a junk removal company with a solid reputation and positive reviews and make your decision with that in mind and not strictly on pricing. 



Transparent Pricing


Pricing, however, is definitely something you need to view as a major consideration. While you should never choose a junk removal company solely because they have the cheapest prices, you do want to find one that reasonable and affordable. Remember, there is a great deal of truth to the old saying that “You get what you pay for.”


Perhaps as important as fair pricing is the transparency of a junk hauling firm’s pricing scheme. A good junk removal service will not have hidden charges or undisclosed fees. You should be looking for fair and transparent pricing.



Green Disposal Processes


No one living or working in the Chula Vista area wants to be guilty of unnecessarily contributing to our quickly vanishing landfills. Which is why you should look to only hire a company that operates with genuinely ‘green’ processes.


The sad truth is that far too many junk removal and hauling companies do not dispose of waste in an ecologically responsible manner. So, your task is to find a junk removal service that works to recycle as much junk material as possible.


Of course, Junk King San Diego Downtown rates Number One in all these categories and more!
