I'll need the breaker panel in the new place replaced, and later on some wiring replaced.
Anyone around there?

Zinsco :)
I don't really know on the amperage.
The power goes to the garage then underground conduit to the house.
I'll see if I can upload the pics

The fuse panel is fed by the blade disconnect, and it's empty, not connected. That'll just go away.

Can’t see any numbers on it. If you’re upping the amperage “say 100amp to 200amp” PUD will more than likely have to drop a new service. Obviously they’ll have to pull the meter regardless. What’s making you replace it? Just because it’s a Zinsco or did a home inspector tell you to?

I don't know a whole lot about this, but I'd like a new box with better breakers.

So it turns out the fuse box is for the heaters.
