Aquarium Removal Services by Dallas Aquarium Experts
Dallas Aquarium Experts offers Aquarium Removal Services. Aquarium Removal Service is typically one of two situations.
Leaving the Aquarium Hobby
The first situation is when a non-service client or a hobbyist who performs their own aquarium cleaning service and has decided they no longer want their aquarium. They do not want the hassle of the process associated with removing an aquarium.
Unintentional Aquarium Owner
The second situation we encounter in aquarium removal is created in a real estate sale transaction. The old homeowner plans to leave the existing aquarium and the new home owner has no idea how to take care of it or the cost associated with aquarium maintenance service. Most of the time in these situations the aquarium being left is at the end of its life cycle. Aquariums do not last forever and require equipment upgrades and maintenance. It only makes sense right, if you just purchased and had a new aquarium installed would you leave it, most likely the answer is no.
Aquarium Removal Issues created by Rookies
Which goes something like this; first attempting to sell their aquarium through Craigslist or some other message board and having a multitude of strangers come in their house pick out everything wrong with the aquarium and begin haggling over price for a couple hundred dollars. Then the question becomes, who is going to move the aquarium? The current aquarium owners? No, they don’t want the aquarium in the first place and no longer get satisfaction from the hobby. The new potential owners? Imagine someone with no idea of the details and complexity of your aquarium is going to learn your system as they break down the aquarium in your home? Think of the scratches and water everywhere not to mention your fish and the stress they will be going through. Oh yes, and now we have multiple strangers in your home because the aquarium is too heavy for one person to remove.
Professional Aquarium Removal
If the above scenario does not sound appealing and you want professionals to remove your aquarium that’s when Dallas Aquarium Experts get involved. We will assess the current aquarium situation and develop the best plan of action to remove the aquarium. We evaluate the value of the aquarium and if the value of the aquarium, equipment livestock etc. meets the cost associated with removing the aquarium then we will remove the aquarium at no charge. The average cost of a small to medium aquarium move starts at $500. Which means the aquarium and all contents need to be close to the cost associated with an aquarium move. If the value isn’t there it simply doesn’t make sense for us to get involved.
Peace of Mind for your Fish
One reason people really like the idea of an aquarium service company like Dallas Aquarium Experts performing the aquarium removal rather than a pet shop handling the aquarium removal is because any livestock ends up in one of our client’s aquariums meaning the livestock will be taken care by a professional aquarium maintenance service company. Most prefer this compared to a local pet shop taking the livestock back to the pet shop and selling it to anyone. You will have no idea if the new owners of your fish know how to take care of your fish and what might happen to them.
