    Hi all,
    Is anyone aware of any companies that will transport and assist in reinstalling a tank in johannesburg?
    Many thanks.

    There are one or two that i can direct you to, but they will charge you a LOT!
    The cheapest would be to borrow / rent a bakkie & ask one or 2 guys to help you out...
    There might even be one or more of the masa members that might help if you ask nicely!

    Thanks
    Its 1800x600x600.
    Live rock, small amount of coral and a few fish/shrimp in the tank at the moment.

    Sorry @newbiez1, should have asked you first if you had any livestock...
    Assumed you only wanted to move a tank. @nemosjanitor is probably the best in the business for relocations & new setups... You will be in good hands with them!

    That is a full days work.
    And if you never done it, then it is a daunting task.

    I suggest speaking to @ADVdiver and get a quote from him. Take into account what is your salary for a day, hired help costs, and the risk involved. Compare that to the quote.
