if you're not moving the radiator there's no need to drain the heating system,

just turn off cold supply and let hot taps run until they stop (if a combi boiler just turn off cold supply there'll be no hot water to drain)

To remove radiator turn off both valves on radiator and undo the nuts, there'll still be water in the radiator but this can be emptied outside.
