Interested, worried about shipping though :) Have people been successful in shipping tanks across the country?

I've never shipped tanks, although LP and ST both do it. Assembled, figure 8x20x30 at ~70lbs.

Mike, I'm interested in the tanks, and the price seem good. I take it that the hydro is about to expire. Can you have them hydro'ed first, then add that cost into the tanks? I ask becuase that way I know I'm getting solid tanks w/o fear of losing my new tanks at the hydro.

second, tanks only or tanks, bands and manifold? (you said x7 doubles)

Firediver,

I can get them hydro'd, provided the cost is added to the tanks.

The tanks are banded and manifolded. The valves are 230 DIN, but I don't know the manufacturer.

**edit** confused tanks, these are 230 DIN convertibles**

Shipping tanks is a real pain in the ass as the carriers consider them hazardous materials, and the shipping location you take it to has to be certified to ship hazardous materials...

You can get tank cartons, some dive shops have them, and empty the tanks, (if you are going to Hydro, let the recipient do the VIs & fill.. ) its OK to ship them empty. (you can leave a little air in them, - just short of empty)

No one ships tanks full, shipping compressed air is like mailing someone and ice cube, it is just a waste. A little gas in them to keep the crap out, but nothing more. Many folks ship them with the valves out and tape over the neck. Most folks want the tanks hydroed (for steel tanks more than AL) because if they fail you are out a bunch of money for the tanks AND shipping AND hydro.

Have the seller do the hydro, add it to the price of the tanks, then the buyer can get a vis (and O2 clean if needed) at his/her LDS. For aluminum tanks, I would have the seller get a vis because neck cracks are a tank killer in AL.
