Need a tub for moving tank

So I'm likely moving in the next month, it's close but I have 2 tanks to move. I've seen pictures of the big Rubbermaid tubs in pictures, where do you get them?

Tractor supply or use food quality bags with the Walmart rubber made tubes.

Brute trash cans are safe to use. The Gray, White and Yellow are USDA Meat & Poultry Equipment Group Listed and assist in complying with HACCP guidelines and Certified to NSF Std. #2. You can get them just about anywhere.

Probably but you'll want to keep the water warm and a little movement. I would just get the tank set up ASAP.

Yeah my plan would be to have it set up that afternoon but at the latest the next day.

They bow pretty good when full of water. Might want to double them up, but yes, the plastic isn't going to hurt anything.

I was going to make a cheap 2x4 frame to support it about 3/4 of the way to the top. It's a lot cheaper then buying a 50g Rubbermaid pond or web a brute trash can. Do you think the frame will prevent the bowing?
