    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!

    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.

    Why Use A+ Enterprises for your Boat Removal

    • Upfront pricing to haul away your old boat
    • We are professionals at removing & disposing of all boats

    • 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.

        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!

        5 star review  Top notch. I called and spoke with a Guy named Sal. Very friendly and excellent Customer Service, 100%. I was set up in minutes. The pricing was great. Delivered it next day. When it was time for pick up I advised that I would be working and not able to hear the door so just knock hard. I went out on my Lunch break wondering what the heck? And the Dumpster was gone. Great service. Great Price. I called about 6 Dumpster Rental places and of all of them, A+ Was definitely the best and Props to Sal. Great Service. Truly is A+

        5 star review  EXTREMELY PLEASANT AND PROFESSIONAL! Gave them a call to remove some old furniture and assorted boxes of junk. They said the had a crew in my area the next morning and could be here at 9am. Arrived right at 9 on the dot and got straight to work. They battled through all my cobwebs and work quick and efficiently. No trouble or damage from moving some big items in narrow areas. The price they quoted was great value for all the work they did. I have already and will continue to HIGHLY recommend them.

      • 5 star review  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!

        5 star review  These guys are awesome! They came here when promised, were really nice and friendly, and they did what they were supposed to do in a timely fashion. The price quoted was changed because I had more “stuff” to get rid of. However, they quoted the difference before getting the rest of the things out and we agreed. I will certainly call them next time. Thanks, A+!
