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!

Junk boat removal is not as simple as it sounds, but A+ Enterprises is the expert in removing your old boat. There is no such thing as a truly free junk boat removal service, but we are the next best thing!

We can give you a rough estimate for your boat removal job right over the phone, and our price includes ALL transport, labor, disposal, and recycling fees!

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.

  • We can remove boats without trailers
  • We recycle & salvage as much as possible from boats we remove to keep as much as possible out of the landfill

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.

Areas We Remove Boats

  • Lake Wallenpaupack

    5 star review  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!

    5 star review  Absolutely amazing! Highly recommended! I recently moved to Pennsylvania and purchased a fixer upper in Luzern County. I had a large pile of debris from the house that I needed to get rid of. I called A+ Junk Removal and spoke with Sal. He was extremely professional and very personable. He was able to work with my schedule which was greatly appreciated. Sal also contacted me through text to remind me of my scheduled appointment. Joe and Andrew showed up on time to give me an estimate for my junk pile. They gave me a great price and got right to work. Both Joe and Andrew were very polite and extremely professional. Very friendly as well. They did an amazing job! I couldn’t have asked for a better crew to come and do this job for me. I am extremely appreciative for Sal, Joe and Andrew. I highly recommend this company and will definitely use them again on the future. Thank you so much A+ Enterprises!
