    Just wondering what type of tradie i should be looking into to removing a carport pergola and concrete that its on?

    Im guessing a demolition company would not be required?

    Also any suggestions of particular people in western sydney?

    Or is anyone interested in a pergola and a carport :p

    I sold my carport on eBay - and the buyer removed it.

    You could offer it for free on eBay or gumtree. Otherwise get someone from hi pages.

    Carport and pergola structures are generally de-constructed by a handyman (expect to be charged for waste disposal also).

    With respect to the removal of concrete... you'll need a concrete cutter in the mix.

    Give it away on Gumtree as others have said.

    Or just a labourer/handyman with ute for demo, then earthmoving company to rip up and dispose concrete.

    Thanks for the replies

    Yea a handyman could remove the structures (plus i need a fence installed so might get that all done together - any recommendations would be appreciated).

    Also just realised it might be best to leave the concrete as it is for now (just need the pergola removed and fence installed while tenants are being replaced)

    As for pergola if anyones interested pm me (can give more details) - need it gone next week
