Do you have an old boat lying around that you wish would disappear? Many people have a boat that they used to enjoy taking to the lake or river, but now either lack the time, the boat broke down, or both!

You might be wondering what to do with your old boat -- we’ve heard every possible way someone can get rid of a boat. The cheapest (and hardest) solution would be to cut the boat into many small pieces and put it in garbage bags & take it out with the weekly trash.

What Does Boat Removal Cost?

We get asked about the cost of removing a boat every single day! There is not a flat-rate for boat removal, as we factor in the distance to it, size of the boat, and how we will transport it back into our pricing.

With that said, on average, the cost to dispose of a 17′ boat in Northeast Pennsylvania is around $950. While that sounds like a lot of money, it really is not.

We take care of all the hauling/transport, dismantling, recycling, and disposal for you and include all of that into our price. If you were to dispose of the boat yourself, it would cost $600+ to rent a dumpster and many hours to cut the boat up.

    review rating 5  I was looking for someone to haul away some things from a home remodeling project. I called A Plus and within 10 minutes I received an email and was able to call the owner right away. He sent his crew out the next day and took care of my hauling needs with a great price. I cannot tell you how pleased I am at the prompt, courteous service I received from both the owner and the crew. I highly recommend them. Mary Gadomski

    review rating 5  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
