Aha, I wondered if you would put 2 and 2 together
Yes. I had to sell them when I left the UK for Melbourne as the same issue applied. Now considering what I do in terms of tanks here as they are extraordinarily expensive. Looking at the long term as a move to NZ could be on the cards in the next couple of years, so just wondering on the total cost of ownership front taking into account annual testing.... And all the other bumph that goes with rent vs buy.
I had hoped that Oz NZ might be joined up in terms of testing and standards but no such luck.
Those 10s stood me in good stead over the last few years and I managed to sell them at a profit..... Nothing to do with trying to make money on them. I had to get rid before I left the UK. It was just the cost of steel has rocketed and so cost of tanks has gone up so second hand value increased.
I could just hope for a crash in the Chinese economy which would mean tank prices drop again but that would leave us all bu55ered so will just grin and bear it.
