I've removed a few of em.
Lower it to the ground, disconnect the power cable from the battery. Take the pins out of the arms on the ramp and cut the lines. pull it off in pieces/sections and its much easier. I can get one out and to the roadside in about an hour now.

You may want to leave it in during the build process, if you are going to use the bus for retrieving stuff. It will be make loading/unloading a lot easier.

Our bus does not have one, but many times I would have loved to have the lift in place. Then again, we are using ours as a moving van.

I work at a warehouse so I was lucky enough to bring my bus there and pull it out with a forklift. Took all of 15 minutes with 2 people.

Update your profile with where you are -- somebody local to you might be able to help.

For example I'd remove a working one for somebody in exchange for it!
