    Joy-my wife and i were totally intrigued by this adventure. I have been doing some research in...

    the hopes of coming across a two used grain bins like the ones you moved. We reside in Lawrence Kansas and have a need for a source out this way. I have read your procedure in dismantling them and it looks extensive but not impossible. If a company or a source comes to mind and you want to share we would appreciate it. Thank you Tom and Sher Gibson.

    Tom and Sher,
    I know of no company or consistent source that deals in used grain bins. If there is such a thing, it's likely to be a small, regional outfit. However, I can give you some likely places to check for used bins.

    Keep an eye on local or regional farm and ranch papers and magazines. Farm and even some estate auctions would also be worthwhile. Talk to local contractors of various kinds, and see if they know anyone who deals with bins, and might be willing to help you keep an eye out for the kind and size you want. Word of mouth is still the best advertising, so let locals know what you're after. It just might be that someone has some bins they wouldn't mind getting rid of, but isn't advertising.

    I hope this helps. I'm not terribly familiar with the Lawrence KS area, so cannot offer more specific suggestions.

    - Joy

    Thank You Joy, your input is really appreciated . We do have a local farm type ag paper we keep our eye on. There are a few for sale on E Bay but they tend to be in remote areas where it would not be cost efficient to do or relocate. We will keep all this mind in our searches. Thank you.

    Cheers,TG,SG.
