    does anyone know know of a good company to move a tank in cape town.
    i need a 2.5m x 1m x 900 mm tank moved from newlands to claremont. as well as a steel stand

    i may need some water storage bins for a few days as well, to store as much of my existing water.
    can anyone suggest a reliable and reasonably priced company
    i need this done ASAP
    thanks

    i assume you have been doing this quite a while, can i ask what the problems are with having a tank outside ??
    obviously i understand about the algae growth due to sun exposure , but are there any other issues with this type of setup .

    My advice would be to strip the tank and rebuild the tank at your place

    There various issues. Rain getting into the tank causing SG swings, contaminants like pesticides etc. Will it be where the kids playing with rugby balls etc?

    no nothing like that , will be closing off top of tank , with sliding glass , also to reduce evap , and only little girl at the moment , tank is going on a patio area , with pergola over the top

    can do , if it is put side ways for a period , but i have already checked , and there is no problem moving it , just a company to do it that is reliable,
    as we all know , this is not a small job
