Another company in Irving, Texas paid $52,200 to have a 29,000 sq ft concrete parking lot removed, and another in Manchester, New Hampshire paid $2,300 to have a 480 sq ft lot removed.

The Greenville customer paid $0.78 per sq ft to remove their parking lot, the Irving customer paid $1.80 per sq ft, and the Manchester customer paid $4.79.

Factors Affecting Concrete Parking Lot Removal Pricing

There are a number of things that can affect the cost of your specific concrete parking lot removal project.

The most common factors that influence the total cost of concrete parking lot removal include:

  • Size of the parking lot.
  • How deep the parking lot layers are.
  • Where the parking lot is located and how accessible it is.
  • Whether or not obstacles are present to work around or move.
  • Presence of underground lines or drainage catch basins under the parking lot.
  • The contractor you hire to do the work.

Naturally, the larger the parking lot and the deeper the concrete is poured, the more expensive it will be to break it up and remove it.

Likewise, if your parking lot is located in an area that has a high cost of living and high waste disposal fees, then you can expect to pay more for your parking lot removal.

And if your parking lot contains multiple obstacles, whether underground lines or just a complex design to maneuver, then it will take more time and effort to safely remove the parking lot and will cost more to do so.

Another commonly overlooked factor that affects parking lot removal costs is the contractor you hire to do it.

Each contractor offers different levels of customer service and different prices, and not all contractors are created equal.

Because of this, we recommend reaching out to multiple contractors for quotes to compare them.

This will help you get a great price for your concrete removal project and great customer service, too.
