    Just wonder if it's going to be worth trying to sell two rads to the scrappies?

    I've never got rid of stuff this way - so wouldn't know where to start!?

    I only have two (one about 1x1m and 1 about 1.2x1.8m - both single panel - so am tempted just to drop them at the local tips until someone suggested the scrap merchent!

    Anyone else got rid of just a few rads this way? What kind of return could I get?

    a few pence I would reckon

    if you leave them out front, you will probably find they get magically recycled.

    They are barely £10 to £15 brand new; tip them.
     
  5. Just leave them outside and someone will kindly take them away for you.

    If they were modern types then ebay might pay a few pounds for them but that's unlikely as you have changed them!

    Steel has a value, but not much in small amounts. Taking 2 rads to the scrap merchants won't cover your petrol there and back. Only worth it if you have a couple of dozen and a truck.

    Leave them out for the p!keys to put on their truck.

    The scrap dealers will probably only give you mixed metal price for them which is currently around 18 pence a Kilo. And you will have to wait for your money as they can not pay you in cash anymore.
