Getting rid of an old boat sounds like a difficult thing to do, but A+ Enterprises is here to help!
An old boat can turn an otherwise beautiful property into an unsightly mess! They are often infested with rodents, and can pool water which could attract mosquitoes.
Making sure your old, unwanted boat is removed before it causes these hazards is very important. It is important to call a boat removal service to haul away & properly dispose of your old boat if it is no longer needed.
Many of our customers have found that absolutely nobody in the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre area will remove an old boat and dispose of it properly. One call to A+ Enterprises Junk Removal, and we were able to get rid of their old boat quickly and efficiently.
The problem with old boats
You might be asking, “how can I get rid of an old boat?” That question can often-times give people anxiety thinking about it, because for most people disposing of an old boat is no easy task.
If a boat is properly maintained, it can provide decades of enjoyment and fun. If a boat is neglected for even one year, it can be rendered useless and will need to be disposed of. Most boat dealers do not provide solutions for old boat disposal, but A+ Enterprises does!
We are a fully licensed and insured boat removal service. Our company can come to your location, and remove your junk boat whether it is on a trailer, in the water, or beached on the ground.
How we remove boats
For most boats we remove, the best way to haul it away is to winch it onto a rollback truck. This allows us to quickly load that old boat up, and be on our way. It is also the least expensive option as it only requires one truck.
The downside to winching boats onto a rollback truck is the maximum length for the boat & trailer combination can be no longer than 20′ long.
Another option if the boat & trailer are roadworthy is to simply tow it away. We have salvage plates we will put on the trailer, and safely transport it back to our facility. A downside to doing this is if the trailer has been sitting for a while, the tires and wheel bearings may be unsafe for transport.
The final option for removing boats is unfortunately the most expensive. For large or otherwise un-movable boats, we will demolish them on-site. This involves us bringing out our excavator, rolloff dumpster truck(s), and dump trailer for metal recycling.
While the whole process of demolishing and removing a boat takes only 4 hours on average, it unfortunately costs more due to having to bring out multiple pieces of equipment.
How we dispose of boats
Properly disposing of a boat is important. Some people will do terrible things just to get rid of a boat such as sinking it in a lake or river, throwing it in the woods, or trying to burn it! The only proper way to dispose of a fiberglass boat is to take it to the landfill to be safely and responsibly disposed of.
We salvage as much as we can off the boat such as the engine and trailer frame for scrap metal. This keeps as much out of the landfills as possible. These engines & trailer frames will then be reused in other boats, to keep them from getting junked as well. This is the most environmentally friendly way to dispose of old boats.
Do you need a title?
Because we simply dispose of boats, we do not need a title to get rid of your old boat! Whether the title was lost, stolen, etc. it does not matter as we simply take the boat to the landfill where it will be crushed up.
Many other boat removal services require you to have a title to your old boat because they attempt to re-sell them. While that is possible, we feel that is misleading to the customer. We do the right thing by junking your old boat.
What does boat removal cost?
There are some companies that will remove your old boat for free. While free junk boat removal services do exist, they are often-times not a safe or environmentally friendly option. We carry liability insurance, which protects you in case of any damage to your property while removing your boat.
While some boats DO have valuable parts in them, they need to be torn apart to get those parts. The fiberglass debris that is left over needs to be disposed of properly. We have cleaned up many sites that other “companies” left the hulls of boats out to rot, causing environmental damage.
The average cost to dispose of a 17′ boat in Northeast Pennsylvania is around $950. That includes all of the transport, dismantling, recycling, and disposal costs associated with getting rid of that old boat. It is cheaper and easier than trying to do it yourself!
A+ Enterprises not only recycles as much as possible from boats, but also ensures every boat is properly disposed of once it is time to junk it. With that said, every boat removal job is a little different. Give us a call so we can work out the best price on boat removal for you!

Sal was great to work with. I was so stressed about a large deck in the back of my house that was collapsing. Sal came right over and gave me a very fair price and two days later the job was done. And a really good job. He even hauled away a piece of junk for me at the last minute. I highly recommend this company and plan to use them again as the need arises
Hired A Plus Enterprises last year to remove some old pool equipment, old yard equipment, and old furniture from my house. There timing, professionalism, and reasonable pricing was overwhelmingly amazing. Great job and look forward to hiring you again!
Amazing customer service!! Very nice people and easy to work with. Will definitely use again!

Professional and courteous. We have sought the services of this company twice now. Each time they were more than accommodating with very reasonable prices. A+ service.
Called A + enterprise junk removal to have a few items removed from my apartment. Sal and his team were GREAT!!! Fair price and fast service plan on using them again.
I hired Sal to remove a huge pile of dirt at the property. Sal and his team came on time and finished the job beautifully. They are reliable, honest, and excellent on their workmanship. I would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you Sal. AAA+++

I would highly recommend A+ Enterprises. Very professional staff. Fast response to my request for information. Sal is very friendly, answered all my questions and set a date for pick up, much faster than I had expected. Day of pick up was better than prompt. Joe called en-route to say he was a little ahead of schedule and could actually be at my house sooner. Great Job at a reasonable price. Would definitely refer family and friends. Thank your for A+ service!
Fantastic customer service. Sal was on time, very responsive to messages and professional. The price for the dumpster was very reasonable also. I have had issues with other junk removal companies in the past and wish I had found them sooner. I will definitely use them again in the future.

Very nice to deal with. Showed up promptly. Worked throughout the entire day. Did a fabulous job! Would highly recommend.
AMAZING!!! 30 years of junk in a HUGE truck garage. We could not have done this job without A+ Enterprises. Thanks to Sal, Joe and the entire staff. I've never met in this day and age such HARD WORKERS!!! Also extremely polite and professional. I HIGHLY recommend this company to everyone. My rating is A+++++++++++
A+ is a first-rate, highly professional outfit. They offered courteous, efficient, same-day service at a more-than-fair price. I recommend them with great confidence.

I got a 100% accurate estimate from the owner and he dispatched a crew to clean out my house the next day (!). The guys were professional and very nice and personable, making a tough situation much easier to handle. Moreover, they worked until the job was done way over my expectations. This company has the best prices in our area and they are complete pros. I would recommend them to anyone...don't hesitate and call A+ first! They will be my first call in the future!Added 3/1/2020: So 18 months later I had to clean out a 2nd floor apartment and 3rd floor attic. This attic was stuffed floor to ceiling with junk and the apartment full of furniture. Sal had a crew there within 24 hrs of my call and cleaned it out in ONE DAY! They even swept up and went through with garbage cans to completely clean the house. I value good service and A+ always delivers...I recommend them to my friends and family and have now used them 3 times. Each time the price is far less than I expected and the work is way better than I'd expect. If you have a job that you're afraid to deal with...call them!!!!! It is the best call you'll ever make! They have always come through for me. Thank you!!!!
