Stand recommendations!

Hey guys- I've had my 30 gallon tall (24x12x24) reef tank on an Ikea Expedit shelving unit. I realize this is bad news and want to make a change to a new stand ASAP. Im assuming the tanks weighs around 200lbs with all the live rock and everything. The thing is I'm probably moving in a year or so and will start a much larger tank in my new house, so I don't want to drop a ton of money on a stand. No Sump with the tank, just HOB skimmer etc, so no need for anything special with respect to a stand. Here are my questions:

Does anyone have an easy DIY blueprint for a stand for a 30 gallon tall?

Does anyone know of a premade stand that would be good and looks decent from say a Home Depot or furniture store?

Does anyone have suggestions on how to physically move the tank from one stand to the next???

Here's a picture of the setup, From a half a year ago when I first set up the tank.
