my friend has about a 20 ft tandem axle construction trailer which he thinks is about 3000 lbs in his back yard.. he is going to scrap it.. he has been trying to sell it for a while with no luck.. has no brakes which is not legal where we are and has no paperwork at all to register it.. so he is going to scrap it..
i called my local yard and they will dock him 20 bucks a tire so 80 total if we tow the trailer there and unhook and leave it. so i say we will pull 2 tires off and tow it there. so you only get docked 40 bucks. i think this will be the best bet
he wants to pull the tires off and cut the trailer into pieces and scrap it that way.. problem with this is we have no way to cut it up.. its solid steel i beam frame.. so he will end up paying more than 80 bucks to either rent something or find someone with a torch or a plasma cutter or something to cut it up.. so your paying for help plus wasting his own time..
what option would you guys go with??
also as a note the yard will not let us tow it there and then remove the wheels off the trailer and just drop it on the ground.. liability issue i guess.. that would be the best option..
