Can anyone recommend a good individual to put in a new fence post?

 

Our old gate blew off in the winds and I need a new post put in....The old one needs digging out (current concreted in) and new one replacing it.

 

Been quoted £250 but can't see it costing anywhere near that.

Is that just for one post and one gate?? That is a lot!

 

One of my fences in my new house blew down and I did the lot again with concrete posts - 12x 6'x6' panels, 13x 8' concrete posts, with concrete boards at the bottom cost me £1500 - done in two days, brilliant job and good value too compared to some of the other quotes I got round me (in Fleet).

It was really just for one post, as the gate is still usable....just needs to be re attached to the new post.

Benjii... or for all those who are interested... Been advised that this would be the cheapest (perhaps not easiest, as it would involve manual labour):

 

1 of 100 X 100 SYSTEM 1 WEDGE GRIP REPAIR SPUR METPOST (http://www.tottontimber.com/system-wedge-grip-repair-spur-metpost-p-2413.html)

 

1 of 3.0M 100 X 100 PRESSURE TREATED POSTS (http://www.tottontimber.com/pressure-treated-posts-p-406.html)

 

 

Cut old post down at ground level + whack spur into ground + insert new post into spur + attach gate = job done for £25.00 and a bit of a sweat on.

But surely the old post will rot and the spur will become loose? Personally I'd just dig it out, buy a bag of just add water ready mixed concrete and a post and be done with it. It wont take long.
