For something that size, it might be easier to rent a flat bed with a chicken wing boom on it. A few slings and something to brace the bottom would be all that is really needed. If you need someone to drive and operate it, send me a PM. 18 ft is probably going to be interesting to move no matter what.

They also shouldn't forget the back braces, too... a tank that size just sounds like it'll weigh a ton. ;) :lol:

Video camera FTW!

Remember, if the tank starts to fall, keep filming it's going to get destroyed anyway. You might as well get it on film!!

Did you talk to Wildwood Towing yet? Did they decline?

Oh and if you need a camera crew, just let me know!
 
The steel shop I worked for has boom trucks with big flatbeds for setting beams... I don't remember how much, but they offer an hourly service. We've craned some odd stuff on the truck, drove to the new site and boomed in/up whatever the customer needed.

An option?
