    Hi guys, i would like to find out if anyone knows someone who does short(very short) distance moving in durban. I bought a 4ft tank and i need it delivered not more than 2-3kms. Its 10mm glass and a bit on the heavy side.

    Please guys help me out, sorry if i posted this in the wrong section

    I just put my tanks on the back of a bakkie with a blanket under it, then just secure it with ropes and polystyrene so it cant move. Mine have never cracked, even over all those stupid speed bumps in joburg...

    i thought of that but i dont have a bakkie otherwise this wouldnt be an issue plus getting guys to carry is another story. Worse case scenario i borrow someones bakkie, just thought maybe someone does this sort of thing here

    Speedz, is there no one that you know off that has a hatch back vehicle with seats that can drop? A standard four feet should fit perfectly there. I remember moving a 1.2*450*450 some years ago in my Golf 1.

    I dropped my back seats, placed blankets in the boot, pushed the passenger seat all the way to the front and fitted the tank lenght way in. I dont know if im lying though, cant remember if it was a Golf or the Polo :p
