It's really not that hard. Have lowes/homedepot do the cuts so all that leave you to do is measure and silicone.

A do it yourself sump is as easy as buying a glass tank and siliconing in glass or acrylic baffles that you can get pre-cut at the hardware store. Super easy and super cheap. I would never waste money on a prebuilt sump. Way too overpriced.
