Have pool will travel.

Today I shifted what has to be the most portable swimming pool ever. It's a shipping container pool - fully self contained, just hook up the power and add water.

Shifting Containers.

After our somewhat greedy ex landlord demanded the rent go from $160.00 per week to $480.00 we knew it was time to shift.

So now our bigger and easier to find Container Display yard is up and running on the corner of the Gregory Hwy service road and Hawkins Place. On the north side of E town, next to Vanderfields and across Hawkins Place from the"smiley face" Window Tinting Rolfes.

Feel free to wander around any time. We've already had a big stock turnover so keep an eye on the block to see what's currently available. And if you can't find what you want give us a ring - your wants can often be quickly sorted.

Finally don't forget our container rental service if you are looking for a short term storage solution.

Show Time - well AG GROW time to be more correct.

Its been a busy few days. 18 Quad bikes and side-by-side units transported out to the Ag Grow site for Central Bike Centre. 2 Kioti tractors for Central Hydraulics. 2 augers for Milne Bros. And lots of internal shuffles of containers and grandstand units for Ag Grow.

The biggest set up for quite a few years - good luck to all involved.

On top of that I have been trying to spend some time with our 2 (adult) children who have been in town this week.

Oh, on top of all this did I mention we have shifted house as well - more to come about that nightmare task that is now just completed.
