What to do with these radiators?

Ken_8 Member Posts: 1,640
I'm on the other side of NJ in Rahway. I suggest you pull them and take them to a scrap metal dealer for the iron. Even though I-78 goes virtually from your front door to mine, I wouldn't even bother to grab them if you said, "They're free - take all you want." Between the gas out and back. My back and the rusty gook that will be all over the place, and the fact that they are perhaps worth 5-bucks a piece as scrap iron still does not make it worth while.

    What to do with these radiators

    We just converted a 4 family building from hot water radiator heat to individual forced air heating/cooling. We now have 28 victorian style hot water radiators we no longer need. Does anybody know of someone who buys these for resale or someone who needs them? They are various sizes and most were never painted and remain in their original silver tone finish. The property is on the NJ-PA border (Phillipsburg NJ to be exact. Any suggestions out there?

    Victorian radiators

    I am located in New York and would be interested in your victorian radiators. Are they all matching? Can you email me some pictures.

    you might try e-bay too. A quick search shows what they have up right nto not goign for much but they are the more commercial later style that has no decoration and was just intended to produce heat. If yours are more ornate and listed propperly they could do better. You would have to probably offer to crate them and ship them motor freight to get any decent bids (at the buyer's expense).

    That said if there is anyone here that wants them it might be better they go to somone who knows what they are doing.
