Propane Tank Emptying & Certifying

I am trying to ship my Airstream trailer to Europe. The shipping company says that the propane tanks must be emptied and "certified & tagged" as being empty.

I've checked around with several local RV service facilities and propane companies and everyone says they do not do this nor do they know anyone that does. One place told me that only brand new tanks can be certified as empty and that replacement tanks would have to be purchased in Europe.

Does anyone know where I can have this done? I would rather keep the original tanks with the trailer.

Try a welding suppy store like National Welders. What you need to ask for is to have the tanks "purged" . We have to do this on occasion with some specialty gases we use.
