Hello BP Pros,
I am rehabbing a property in Baltimore and it is one of the old old townhouses. The house has a Hugh oil tank in the basement. Is there anyone here from the area or who invest in the area and can recommend someone who can remove the oil tank for a reasonable price? I would appreciate any assistance you may provide.
Thanks in advance,
People will take them for free, particularly if they have oil in them
Thanks for the reply but do you have a name or names?
Thanks in advance
Be careful with people who take them for free -- you're generally talking about scrap metal haulers and they might not be too careful about making a mess. I had a guy remove a basement oil tank once. Great price...and he spilled oil sludge in my 1st floor trying to get it out of there. Took me 2 weeks to clean it up and get the smell out.
You'll also want to make sure the sludge is properly disposed of at the county landfill. Otherwise it will end up in our beautiful Chesapeake Bay.
Thanks for the information guys; do anyone have a name of a person who can remove the tank in a professional way and give a reasonable price.
I’m the first to look for the best price in anything, but when it comes to matters like this it’s best to reach out to environmental hazard specialist. Like the old saying goes, “Good work is not cheap and Cheap work is not good”
@Andrew. Yes I found one tonight. Tks.
Are you purchasing in Baltimore and if so what do you know as being decent neighborhoods to buy I’m.
Fyi: people that take them for free 1. Sell the oil 2. Dont want to spill it on themselves.
@Tracy D. Garrett-Numa I’m a real estate agent in Baltimore as well as an investor PM me I’d be happy to work for you. I know of a great deal right now right around the corner from my recent purchase that should bring around 30% cash on cash return.
I just saw this, did you find a remover, I can give you a name or two
Hi Ozzy, No I did not get anyone to remove the oil tank.
Thanks in advance for a contact.
