How to Remove an RV: A Comprehensive Guide

If you have an old or immobile RV on your property that needs to be removed, you might feel overwhelmed by the task. It might have been sitting there for years, completely covered in blackberry bushes, seemingly impossible to remove.

At Junk B Gone, we specialize in efficient and safe RV removal in Seattle and surrounding areas. Recently, we successfully removed a 30′ RV Trailer from a customer’s property, and we’re here to share our process and tips to help you understand how to get rid of an RV safely and effectively.

RV Removal Seattle: Step-by-Step Process

1. Initial Assessment

The first step in any trailer removal is a thorough assessment of the vehicle’s condition. Our General Manager, Gage Young, provided a free, onsite evaluation for our customer. Due to the RV’s age and extensive damage, it was deemed unsafe to tow, so we decided the best course of action was to cut the RV into pieces for removal.

2. Checking the Title

Before proceeding with the removal, it’s crucial to check if you have the title for the RV. If the title is available, we offer two options:

  • Towing the RV Away: If the RV is in a towable condition, we can tow it to the appropriate disposal facility.
  • Breaking Down the RV: If towing is not an option due to damage or other issues, we can dismantle the RV and remove it in pieces.

Ensuring the customer has the title is essential for the proper and legal removal of the RV.

3. Preparation

Before beginning the dismantling process, we ensured the RV was free from all potential hazards, such as electricity and propane gas. In this case, no permits were required for the removal. We arrived prepared with all necessary tools to start the job safely and efficiently.

4. Tools and Equipment

The tools we used included:

  • Berk bar
  • Saws-alls (reciprocating saws)
  • Sledgehammer
  • Impact driver for removing wheels and unscrewing parts

5. Removal Process

With a team of three professionals, the entire removal took about eight hours. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of our process:

  • Ensured all hazardous materials were safely shut off and disconnected.
  • Removed and recycled the batteries and propane tanks.
  • Carefully cut the RV into manageable pieces, considering the extensive water damage and the tight location.
  • Loaded the pieces onto our trucks for safe disposal.

6. Environmental Considerations

Safety and environmental responsibility are paramount in our operations. We made sure all hazardous materials, such as batteries and propane tanks, were properly removed and recycled. Ensuring everything was safely shut off was our top priority before beginning the dismantling process.

7. Final Steps

After dismantling and removing the RV, we ensured the site was left clean and safe. Our customer was eager to have the RV removed quickly to proceed with selling their property, and we made sure to meet their expectations.
