RR tank worth the price?

I've been searching for months for a tank in the area and just can't find one. For the most part, companies will only ship freight and I live in the middle of no where. Appears to be normal shipping on this beast, thoughts?

Oh my hank, you'd be better off renting a truck and searching a little further out on CL lol Columbus offers a lot of awesome reef tank deals which I get its a drive but for that price you could quadruple the tanks size by doing your own pick up lol. That does seem about right though to have it shipped to you. Shipping glass that size ain't cheap unfortunately haha.

I'm actually watching several states for one right now... Didn't see anything I liked in Ohio or New York. Don't remember Virginia or wv. Keep an eye out for me, this is frustrating.

What are the maximum dimensions you can handle, 4' long? I think you should try and hunt down a 120 (4'x2'x2') but you may just have to pay to get it drilled instead of getting it RR from the start which will probably save you some money anyways. Ive seen a couple 120s around the Pittsburgh area lately but not drilled.

I messaged a guy from butler that makes acrylic tanks for pretty cheap for those exact dimensions. So well see what comes of it.

Well I hope not, but his listed prices are 2-400 own so it should t be too much more of a stretch. Well see though.
