    Hi gang looking to get oil tank removed.

    just wondering if anyone has done this before. Looking to go towards a more healthy heating system so was looking to get oil tank and boiler removed.

    We are in the Wicklow area if anyone has any contacts or price ideas would really appreciate it.
    Thanks.

    Is there much oil in it? Steel or plastic tank?

    I had a very large/heavy steel one, tilted to one end drained the bit of oil I could. Then drilled a small hole and drained the remainder. Just cut up along the welds with a jigsaw. Once I got a few sides cut I just broke the remaining welds. Didn’t take too long.

    If the tank is in ok condition put it on adverts and someone might come for it.

    I found myself in same dilemma recently. Reluctant to pay somebody to take it away I placed it on adverts.ie free section. A guy took it within 48 hours. Let me know if you want his details - no issues at all dealing with him. This was for plastic oil tank removal.
