Remove Pole - Verizon PA

If anyone can advise how to have Verizon remove one of their old poles and move their lines onto the new one, it would be appreciated.  The electric utility company (PECO) has moved the power lines.  However, Verizon has made it very difficult to obtain a contact in their construction arm to determine how to get the old pole removed and wires moved to the new pole. I am having a new fence installed and would like the pole removed the fence doesn't get damaged when they do come to remove the pole.  Also the old pole is marked with a red tag that indicates its in such poor condition that it is not safe to climb and is leaning over badly (see photos).

Thank you
