Dismantling sleeper walls and beds

I am quoting for a job where we need to remove a children's play area and some raised beds, all constructed from softwood sleepers.  They have only been down a max of 5 years, so if I possibly could, I'd like to save as many sleepers as possible.  Some are screwed together with big crosshead screws, some bolted with hex head timber screws.

Realistically, am I going to be able to separate them to re-use (for me to use, the customer doesn't want them) or will I be wasting my time and should just cut them up with my chainsaw?

Cheers, Darren

    • Darren what state are the sleepers in when you got them out ?

        Not too bad. We threw one away.  It would be hard to pass them off to a customer without some sort of discount.  However, I have a project in my own garden in mind :-)
