Anyone shipped a fish tank in their container ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys ,

 

Has anyone shipped a a fish tank in your container ?

 

Of course it will be empty:tongue: and will have new carbon/filters

 

It's a HUGE one would hate to part with it

 

If you have shipped one how did you clean it so customs didn't decide to strip your whole container lol ?

I'd look into selling it on ebay and buying a new one. Unless your insurance covers it - I would think it would be risky. Saying that, we shipped our Denby dinning set to Oz and back and we didn't loose a single piece. But I would have thought a fish tank would be risky.

 

Funny - but I looked in my tank this morning, and two fish have dissappeared. Not dead - they have just gone. Can't see them anywhere.

      Visas finally granted (after 12months of waiting ;)) So now is the BIG move in 7weeks!!
      We've only been granted temp 457 so for 2years with "maybe" the potential to extend by another 2 years if position is still on the list. Anyway, hubby and I are in a quandary about what to ship?
      Here, we have a 3 bed house, family of 3 (DD), lots of electrical, garden, tools etc.....bikes, dog's being shipped (another story), and we have been given lots of conflicting advice and a difference of opinion as he's in logistics so has an idea of the complications when containers are held at customs!
      Advice required.....
      is it really best to pay a removals company or could I do packing and manifest myself?
      is it just less hassle to just sell everything up here and start again in WA? and if/when we have to rtn just face that we will have to start all over again!!
      Or....
      Put all but required items in storage in the UK?
       
      Any advice or personal scenarios would be greatly received.
      😉
