what is the going price for a used propane tank 500-1000 gal. size?

We are converting to natural gas and will want to unload the big eyesore. Should we just give it away to someone if they take care of moving it or should we ask payment for the tank itself? How much is it worth?

    Why not call some of your local propane dealers around and ask them what the cost is and if they want to buy it?
    We bought a used on 68 years ago 500 gallon in very good shape for three hundred bucks.
    Maybe place an ad in your local area some one my want to buy it for reasonable price. Ask the dealer what they go for in your area.

    Good Luck:)

    The lowest price you can get it for. A new tank will cost as much as $1,500.00 But if you can find a used tank for half or less good deal. Make sure that the tank is in good working order befor you buy it. Have the tank checked for serial# and date of manufacture. This will deem weather the tank needs to be recertified as a goodtank in good condition. This can be done by any propane supplier, I.e. Jones propane (your local propane dealer).This is for a 500 gallon tank 1,000 gallon tanks can be as much as $2500.00. Be sure to certify the tank befor you purchase it. If it passes then you are good to go. Age of the tank will not matter as long as it gets recertified as good to go.Good luck.

    I would look on craigslist. I’ve seen them for sale there and they go for several hundred dollars. Someone will buy it if its cheap enough even with the problem of moving it.
