Not sure if this is the correct area to post (new here) but I was wondering if there were any online stores that ship tanks? I'm only coming across small ones and ones that require pickup (don't have a car) :(

There are several online that ship up to 300 gallon tanks. I like this one : http://www.fishtanksdirect.com/

Did you not google ... several in the US !

You could call a cab service and request a van type cab to get a tank home , that would be a hell of a lot cheaper than the freight online.
Even make arrangements with a local carrier service for pick up.

"Did you not google" IS a TAD rude, I did but aside from the more mainstream companies that don't want to ship, I hadn't had much luck AND it's always helpful to have recommendations from people that have actually used the site, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the link! Very much appreciated :)

Not trying to be rude ! But I see you took it that way by your all cap's (yelling) ... a perception on your part.

Honesty is the most humane gift you can give someone.

Your best bet is to look for a local specialist but I'm sure that would be expensive as well. What size tank are you looking for?
