Industrial Equipment at Residential Property

I got a trash out with commercial fryers, coolers, and what not at a residental property that was also some sort of resteraunt. I will get paid for the trashout without having to move the equipment The client wants a separate bid. These things weigh a ton, the fryer is a stanless steel. Im not equiped for moving this so I thought about getting a scrap hound to get it which would alleviate that problem. The other problem is I want to make money on this bid, I am not sure what to bid so I can get the bid approval. FAS probably marks up 30 to 50% so I dont want to go to high, the client wont approve of course. Any suggestions?

*didnt mean to post in this category, MOD can you please move to General Discussion?*

Remove it yourself! Scrap stainless steel is a fortune, depending on whats there several hundred pounds on stainless is a ton of Money. Once time we scrapped a stainless steel horse trough and made $600 on it

Contact a local scrap yard, they often drop off roll off containers for free if there is enough there, worth their while, and rent a backhoe, or bobcat, depending on weight, for a day to load it up....

Cover yourself. Make sure that you document the make, model, serial number etc. as well as sending in the pictures with your bid. Those items are clearly above nominal value. Those items may also have creditors looking for them. Have all your ducks in a row so you aren't thrown under the bus with theft charges or anything else.

I personally would not remove them unless I had a line by line work order listing each appliance with approval to either remove and dispose or remove and store.
