- $45 for each tank thereafter, delivered to the same address on the same delivery vehicle at the one time.
Additional Freight fees will apply for other areas/zones, please just contact us for a freight quote.
Our tank freight fees are heavily subsidised and the required assistance is very important to ensure affordable tank delivery.
As each site is different, we will at the time of organising the delivery, try to highlight any difficulties that may hinder the delivery process. The Tank Factory’s obligation is to deliver the poly tank to your property and cannot guarantee (due to difficult access, power lines or steep terrain etc) that the tank will be placed directly onto the tank site. Once arriving on site, the delivery driver will assess what is possible and safe for all involved. If assistance cannot be provided then the hire or use of any equipment needed is at the purchasers’ expense and will need to be arranged once the driver has left the site. Our water tank deliveries are scheduled Monday to Friday only – we do not deliver on weekends.
Please contact our friendly sales personnel at The Tank Factory. They are keen to assist you with the choice of the right tank for your application, direct you with delivery details or help answer any other related enquiries.

This is the 4th Duraplas tank I have purchased. I wish to commend the delivery driver on his prompt & professional service. The experience was positive & exceeded any expectation I had. I would also like to commend you on delivering a quality product. The price was not the cheapest but was extrememly competative & I chose to support a local company.
