Question Scarp Metal Removal

I've been cleaning up some property between Hondo and Devine and have some scrap metal I'd like removed. There are two ~20' tall galvanized grain bins (bottoms have rusted out) and some random scrap. Mostly old oil field pipes. I thought I'd check here to see if anyone is in the business before I start researching local yards.

I also have a 1980s era (just a guess) Chevy bronco that was abandoned (would require a flatbed) that I'd like removed.

Any suggestions?

This or the scrap guys off Craigslist.
Yeah it's Craigslist but the scrappers are real.
Just make sure you have an understanding with them, as to what you want done, and how you expect it to look when they finish.

Bronco or Blazer? May be worth some coin.

Iíll get a pic of the bronco tomorrow. It appears to have been in the pasture for a while based on the trees around it.

If someone wants to hassle with removing it, you can have it.

those bins MIGHT have some value whole it is not hard to get replacement parts for many of them and those sizes are easy to move and would work well for feed

the Blazer is probably too far gone for even parts to be picked off of it, but you never know those year models are sky rocketing in price and some straight metal or even a frame with a good vin might have value over scrap

lastly scrap prices are on the move and possibly heading a lot higher sooner than later you might want to hold off on getting rid of all that if you have some time to wait
