Since the wiring should be checked for damage, I would use an Electrician rather than a Handyman to do this - no use taking risks of a subsequent fire because the wiring splices came loose or the wire got the insulation scraped off as the mast tilted over.

In most cases, minimum service charge of typically around $100-150 to maybe half again that much and probably less than $50 parts should cover it - be sure to tell him if he needs a single-story or two-story ladder to access it, and whether it is wood (like a 4x4 or 6x6) or metal (and what diameter) conduit riser.

NOTE - when measuring riser size, do not touch any wire or metal parts, just in case a bare wire is contacting it due to the movement.
