Tank buying frustration
« on: February 04, 2013, 02:01:09 AM »

Anyone know of places to purchase tanks that dont charge a million dollars for shipping? I'm looking for a tank around the sizes of 60 by 18 by 20 tall or even a 72 long tank with similiar dimensions as the first one stated. Every pet store or website offers 55 gallons like there going out of style or if they are larger volume tanks it seems like all the dimensions are the same, 48 long. Or the online companies that dont charge that much for shipping say if it arrives cracked or damaged you pay for shipping to send it back then you get your cash back which sorry, that isn't gonna happen. Last lfs store I checked with I received a quote for a 60x18x20 and it was 540 bucks which the tank didn't even have starphire glass on the front, regular glass, tank only. Any help from the 75 gallon and above owners that have ordered theres online and tank was delivered from a company with links to their page would be most excellent!

I forgot to add tank only as I will be building my own stand for this since construction is second nature to me. I'd build the tank too seeing it looks pretty **** basic compared to some of the things i've installed and built in the past but its something i'd never forgive myself about and i'd have to kick my own butt if anything went wrong.

Ahhhh interesting, check out my response in your other thread Jeremy, if you are good with the DIY I think a wooden tank would definitely be a possibility for you Wink

 Our local fish shop provides this service (moving) and there are others like moving outfits which will due it for a fee. Buying a tank that large on line has a good chance of getting broke by the shipper. I spent 20yrs working in the trucking industry and they would be handling that large of a tank with a fork lift. They pack everything high and tight and would probably stand it on end and jam stuff around it.

IMHO you would be better off to buy local and make moving it part of the deal. Good luck...
