I have about 5 radiators I would like to take to the scrap yard. I don't have a truck, nor am I trying to spend much to rent one. If you want to help me load them in your truck and ride over there with me, I can give you a cut of whatever I get for the radiators.

  • ward greenleaf Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper, Cannonball Run...

    They weigh 5# each?!

  • @ward, he is probably talking about home radiators.

  • No. I have 5 radiators which weigh approximately 350 lbs each.

  • @erik,

    yeah, like radiators from a home right?

    I think ward is thinking they are car radiators at 5#'s each.

    if they are not home radiators, what kind of radiators are they?

  • they are home radiators. approximately 350# each

  • You're looking at roughly $100 to $110 total. It might help if the truck owner knew what his share would be.

  • You can rent a pickup truck at either Menards or Home Depot for $19 for the first 75mins.

  • You could also be on the lookout for a scrap guy, They are always cruising the alley's. I've taken their numbers to contact them when I have stuff. He'll take them away for free. He may need help putting them on his truck thats all. Unless your looking for the money yourself for them.

  • why not try craigslist or ebay?

    If you're lucky, you might be able to escape the burden of transporting those things, while making a few bucks in the process.

    When I yanked my iron tub out, I flagged a scrapper down and they came in and dragged it away

    If it's only about $120,00 for all five, it's not worth the risk that you and your helper might get injured. I myself would just track down one of those scrap trucks that drive around. Only YOU can figure out if it's worth the injury risk.

  • Good sledge hammer.

  • some people still want to buy radiators, so consider selling them outright.

    I have radiators and one is still holding together with epoxy, but I would consider buying one if the size fits my application.

    what size height, width, length are the radiators and as far as you know are they in decent shape?
