    i have just had a call to say that the movers have dropped the crate with my tank in it from 1.2m. landed on the one corner and hooked against the vehicle it was transported in!



    %%%%%^&%$^%#^%#$! and i am across the bloody ocean so cant see whats happened! Apparently the crate held but they are opening it to see if the tanks ok!

    Hope it's not an April Fools joke. But insurance claim normally = bigger better tank ! Didn't they drop all your equipment too ( hint hint - might as well make that excess work for you! )

    I hope none of you guys on here work in insurance - I would be suitably red faced .

    i was waiting for your reply seeing as you saw through the masa admin one so fast.

    it was you who woke me up to April fools :)

    Just nailed Torunn too. i was driving a small catterpilla tractor next to her car on ice after making compost. Told her i broke the front head light. Slight issue as we are going away tomorrow and would not be able to leave etc etc etc. I nearly got a spade full of sheep SH1t down my back, she didnt see the humour at all. Seems a little happier about things now though :)
