Propane/LP Tank for the Cabin?

12 posts in this topic

Wondering if anyone can tell me the best way, or place, to find a used, functional, 250-500 gallon LP tank for the cabin near St. Cloud, MN. We converted the furnace from oil to propane and need to locate a tank before winter. I'm much more interested in buying vs. leasing. Doesn't need to be pretty, just in good shape.

Any thoughts and/or advice...?

Thanks!!

My propane dealer owns my tank and I don't pay a cent to use it.

Long time customer, buy in bulk by combining my purchase with the neighbor, pre-buy in July, and pay cash. Never had to dicker on the price but I do check rates with other suppliers.

If you buy one on hsolist, I don't know how they will ship it to you?

My dealer in I. Falls, MN (lakes gas) doesn't charge anyone a lease fee? On the 250-1000 gallon tanks they let you use them as long as they get them filled at least once a year.

Check with the local propane place in your cabins area, maybe you can get a deal like this.

Hey!!!!

I have a 500 or 550 gallon tank that is in great shape but needs to be moved by monday the 18th. Lets just say the price is flexable. It is in Isanti and you would be resposible to move it.

It is short notice, but it is available...

Guys we need to keep the Sales threads where they belong.

Neighbor_guy, please post your tank in one of the Regional(Free)For Sale forums.

A couple of other things to remember about a customer owned tank is that you are responsible for all the equipment and any product loss due to a leak is YOUR loss. Like the others have mentioned, many companies will "lease" a tank for nothing if you have it filled at least once a year.

I'm sure the admins are not upset. They are just doing what they are supposed to. I should have known better, but I figured he wasn't advertising a sale.

If things don't work out and you need it moved, let me know. roofer750@yahoo.com

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
