Rural Tank Deliveries

Guidelines for rural deliveries

RURAL TANK DELIVERIES

What we do

With our rural tank deliveries our drivers install the tank fittings on site in the tanks final position so that the fill point, overflow and outlet are sized and located to suit your requirements.

For Rural Tanks up to 6100g (27,500L) our trucks with trailer are up to 20 metres in length, 2.8 metres in width and 5.3 metres in height (this will vary on load combinations at the time).

For Rural Tanks 38,000 and 50,000 Litres, access is required for a 20m long truck and trailer with a height clearance of 5.2m, and access to pull alongside the tank pad. A tilt trailer is used to place the tank into position. The pad must be no higher than 80mm.

If you cannot accommodate the above then the driver will deliver to a mutually agreed accessible point, install your fittings and stainless-steel tie-down points, then the relocation to the tank site will be the responsibility of the purchaser.

The drivers carry a supply of standard fitting sizes. Fittings other than standard should be organized at time of order or prior to the tank being delivered to avoid any inconvenience and extra expense. Each driver is highly trained in the fitting-out of water tanks and can place the fittings to the customer’s requirements as long as the tank provisions allow.

What you must do

Prior to delivery check your access for overhanging trees or any obstacles, you will need to make the path as clear as possible so we can gain access to your delivery site.

Please note that if a crane or any other equipment is required, then hire of this equipment is at your expense and must be arranged prior to delivery.

Our driver will need help to unload your tank from the truck to your site, therefore, could you please have able-bodied people available to assist at time of delivery.

Our drivers adhere to safe work practices at all times and will not attempt any unsafe work practices when delivering products.

Site preparation

Your storage tanks foundation must be smooth, level and free of any sharp objects, the diameter of the base should be no less than the diameter of the vessel chosen. Remember that the foundation is the most important part of your tank’s life. (See product guarantee conditions).
