Looks great ! Maybe you can contract yourself out for Jay making crates for him Good idea with the dolly wheels, because you will think it is in a good spot and won't need to move it, then .....

You got that right! I had my 225g and stand stored in an unused, (at least I thought it was) area of my garage for several months before set-up. After moving the damn thing a couple of times I installed 4 casters to the stand.

Yeah, it's a very very short visit. We get in on Friday night after a 6 -7 hour drive, pick up the tank on Saturday, then head home Sunday.

I'm trying to line up bodies to help us get it off the truck once I get home...there's just not enough Canreefers in Vernon...lol.

Well, we're going to pick up the tank this morning. I will try to get some pictures on here as soon as I can.
I'm a bit worried that there aren't enough people at the store to help get this thing on the truck. My wife has put down her foot...I'm not allowed to break it on the first day!

Should have called me out to help, would have been happy to :-)

I suspect you are all loaded up by now though.

Well, it took 1 1/2 hours to get the crate apart, tank out of the store and then onto the base and back into the truck. Colby and Jay needed to work together along with some help we provided to pull this thing out of the store. Man I need to work out more...haha These guys were very impressive! Pictures shortly!!

Here's me, looking pretty impressed with Jay's work.
