Good afternoon, I hope all is well! I see you are inquiring about a box from the front of your house to be moved.
I have found a link which will guide you to the proper steps on how to get it removed correctly. Please click here, this will give you a website to our forums page. If you have any further questions please feel free to reach back out to us.
I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hi there. I have not one, but TWO of these green poles on my property (one says 8504, which is my house number, and the other says 8506, which is my neighbor, but the pole is on my property). The link you provided above does not "guide you to the proper steps on how to get it removed correctly" as you stated. In fact, it gives no information at all except for people arguing about permits and easements.

AT&T went through an easement and/or right of way process to gain access to and protect the placement of this junction, and they're very unlikely to consider moving it. You can verify such documentation though your local government offices. You can also try posting in the AT&T Business Forum for additional input.
Could you get the equipment moved... yes need engineering... the question is how much it will cost you. As this is a personal request you are agreeing to be responsible for the cost, estimate (my opinion only) would be $10k to $40K. the wiring should be around 30 to 36 inches deep, coming and going to other similar terminals plus all customers hooked to these peds would need their drops reburied from the new location... thus they will have no service during the move of equipment.
You may want to call the buried hotline center for possible who or how to proceed if willing to pay the costs.
