Default Re: Tips for moving a large tank (200+lbs)

a piece of plywood at least 3/4 inch thick should be cut to leave a few inches around the edges of the tank. if possible this should be positioned in front of the stand and level with the shelf the tank currently resides on. the tank is simply slid from the shelf to the plywood and that is carried to the transport vehicle. the same procedure is reversed for set up at the new location. while its still possible to break a tank this way from torsional force, its far less likely than simply picking up the tank. if your really handy with tools you can also cut hand holes in the carrying board to make the move more comfortable.
