    List it for parts, possible non-working, someone may snag it.

    I'm in Montreal, Canada. Here the yard takes 100lbs off, when there's alot of glass. I believe that would be the case with the tanning bed. Really not sure if it's worth it, too much work to remove the glass and tubes. Try to sell it as it...

    I haven't seen any tanning beds at the scrap yard, but I know mine does not like things with a lot of glass. In this case, I think you would be better off to try and sell it outright. Less work and possible a lot more money. Good luck!

    Yeah I would strip it down all the way and just recycle the plastic for free and take all the metal to the scrap yard.

    i had the pleasure of finding a tanning bed in my travels in va Beach! we broke it down and found a bunch of inch and a half by six inch long metal heat sinks all through it! we had some other metal with it that day but my partner and i had just the back of my f150 loaded with scrap and we left the yard with 142 bucks! it did have s ton of screws in it which we gladly scrapped as well!

    maria, if you are seriously interested in scrap metal, you may want to go to the introduction section and read the "sticky" there.

    "She" isn't at all interested. Both her posts have spam dvd links.

    I noticed the links, but I thought she just put it there cause she liked 'em. What constitutes a spam link....does it mean you'll get a virus if you click on it ?

    Not always a virus Dee, but it could be adware or spyware. It might just be they were trying to sell their DVD's. At any rate, be careful what you click on, I picked up adware off a VW site awhile back. I mean c'mon, how low can you get to mess with a VW site...lol

    Dee, I could be wrong, but any time someone joins and the 1st post they make is gibberish along with a link to something irrelevant to the forum, I consider it spam.
