Who Removes Stoves & Ovens
You know the cost of a new oven range is going to run you somewhere between $500 and $5,000. Then you have to pay for labor and installation, which is going to cost you around $150.
If you decide to go for gas this time around, you’ll have to get a gas technician to install service lines, but if you get an electric range and wall oven, you need to hire a licensed electrician to install wiring, outlets, and additional circuitry. Both of which will cost over $200, not including materials.
For some reason, when planning out this project you got so excited about getting a fancy new oven range that you forgot to think about how to get the old oven range out of your home. Now you’re stuck wondering who to call to help you.
There are a few options for getting rid of your old oven range when replacing it. Many appliance stores and repair shops offer this kind of service. A qualified handyman could also do this for you.
You’ll likely be able to unhook your old range from the gas or power, depending on what type you have, with the help of some professional tutorial videos and articles from reputable home improvement media channels.
When you buy a new appliance, you’re usually able to get free or cheap haul-away of the old appliance when the service technician installs the new stove and wall oven.
However, if you’re removing units that are built in and specially fitted, you likely need a cabinet installer or carpenter to take out the range and oven, then repair the cabinets and wall so that the new units will fit. An appliance tech or handyman are usually not able to do this and make it look professional.
If the cabinets and drywall where the oven and range were are bad enough after removing them, you may even need to hire a general contractor to get the job done right.
If this looks to be the case for you, call around to cabinet companies and ask if they would be willing to do some drywall patching and painting. While it’s not their expertise, some cabinetry professionals also have additional experience.
All this being said, you may still be able to have the old stove and oven removed by the guys who install the new ones from the store you buy them from. Make sure you ask if this service is available before you purchase the new appliances.
You definitely don’t want to wait until the delivery and installation guy shows up with your new stove and wall oven and not be able to have them installed because you assumed he would remove the old ones.

Stove Top & Wall Oven Removal
If disconnecting the old wall oven and stove means just taking out an old oven to make room for a new one, and the proper electrical outlet, pipes, and wiring are already in place, then you may be able to do it yourself.
In order to save yourself some time and money once the range and oven are disconnected from the gas or electricity, you can have a junk removal company like LoadUp haul them away and dispose of them for you instead.
