    Negative.
    Box looks like shit for eternity. Never even gets fixed, let alone moved.
    +1 agree yes.

    At least that pad was placed high enough. You certainly can concrete up to the bottom level - however the pad might need bollards for protection as per guidelines in that case. That Shaw pedestal looks pretty haggered already.
    Tried getting shaw to look at it, they basically told me to pound sand lol

    It would likely be cheaper to swap the walkway and garage. Meaning, move your garage to the east and redo the walkway on the west side of the garage within your property. At the same time, you could excavate to lower the floor to get a higher ceiling in the garage / build higher.
    This was my other thought, there is plenty of precedence for flat top garages on my street which means the cheaper route would be just building up to get the room for a 4 post, but my wife complained it would block all the sun in the front yard. Priorities.

    Shaw/telus dont give a shit about their infrastructure, even if its damaged, if their customers dont complain about service issues. I've see some blatant cable TV theft and they dont give a shit. If a tech happens to be using the pedestal, they might check it out.

    What ever you do, do not set fire, or otherwise completely destroy the shaw pedestal - otherwise they would have to come out and fix it.

    I had free cable for YEARS by opening up the box in my yard and taking out the filter. Those were the days.

    If we get a third vehicle, I suspect it would be right in the path of a wheel, who knows what could happen then

    Hey, its an alley - some random vehicle just happened to back into the shaw pedestal, repeatedly over the course of several minutes, and also somehow managed to rip it off its base entirely and thoroughly some how.

    Having built plenty of lanes I was surprised to see the Shaw box behind the Enmax box ( usually they are side by side ). I guess its there so you can hit Shaw with minimal problems compared to the shitshow that would happen if you hit the Enmax box. I know they could probably replace the Shaw box with a more modern one that sits flush with the grade, but then you're left with a big risk of hitting the Enmax box, which if it doesn't kill you, will cost a pile of your money to fix. Really wondering how this all this got passed when they built that garage.
