Ascertaining if your site is suitable:

If everything is on order and you would like to proceed please give our friendly staff a call.

Landscape Tanks staff will be happy to discuss delivery methods and protocols, which are very straight forward and quite simple.

We send our tanks all over Australia for mums and dads to install but usually we deal with your local landscaper, plumber or builder.

Access:

Understanding all about your access is important for us to determine what type of equipment will be needed to deliver and place tanks and tops into position.

Landscape Tanks has a diverse and wide range of vehicles available to them to assist in this process.

Please see technical specifications for more details.

Payment.

A deposit is required to secure and order into the system.

All goods are to be paid for a week prior to delivery to enable delivery contractors to schedule their activities.

Direct deposit is the preferred choice of payment.

Time frame for delivery:

Owing to the nature of the product and the time it takes to make each product we do ask for as much time as possible and usually two or three weeks is preferred.

Urgent orders can usually be accommodated not withstanding above.

Landscape Tanks has a list of standard part numbers (see technical info and plumbing configurations on this web site for details) however, on occasions there may be a need for a model that is not shown.

We treat those “custom units” and please allow slightly longer for delivery on custom units.

Warranty.

Landscape Tanks are warranted to be free from defective materials for a period of 12 months from date of purchase.

Concrete by its very nature becomes stronger as it matures so it can be expected the Landscape Tanks will be much stronger in five years time than they are in the first twelve months or so.

Landscape Tanks are manufactured to Australian Standard 3600/2001, which implies that products made to that standard will last in excess of sixty years.

There are many far inferior concrete tanks (made on site) over 150 years old and still in use on farm properties around Australia.

It can reasonably be expected that Landscape Tanks will still be functioning perfectly well over 100+ years from now.

Delivery

Please also see technical info tab on this web site.

Landscape Tanks staff are happy to assist with delivery, working with customers’ chosen contractors or providing our own experienced operators.

Sydney NSW depot is located in Lidcombe and Melbourne Vic depot is located in Dandenong.

Goods are despatched for delivery from either of these locations or direct from the factory in Wodonga for larger orders and S.A. or Qld deliveries – please enquire.

Landscape Tanks have a vast array of delivery equipment available including all terrain four wheel drive forklifts, telehanders of all sizes, Franna mobile cranes, crane trucks of all sizes to the very large mobile crane. Customers are also free to use equipment the builder may already have on site such as excavators, which are excellent for this purpose.

Delivery is usually to site only but may include placing tanks and planter tops into position at time of delivery, if discussed with delivery contractor first. These services are  available at a very reasonable price as we often share the delivery with several customers helping reduce the costs.

Tight access vehicles are also available – 2.2 metres wide and 2 metres high minimum access required.

The small and medium Landscape Tanks, including the planter tops have four x 1.3 tonne anchor points cast into the bottom of the tanks and tops in each corner. These anchor points cater for the Reed’s Swift clutch knuckle lifter to safely lift the tanks. This is standard practice in the concrete industry and all crane truck or forklift operators will be familiar with these lifters.

NOTE: The large Landscape Tank has four 2.5 tonne anchor points in the base of the tank.

L-R: 1.3 tonne Anchor point, 1.3 and 2.5  tonne Swift Clutch Knuckle lifter and keep hands and feet well clear.
