ATI Frequently Asked Questions

How much will my tank cost?

The price depends on your requirements, but our quotation will include all services and support – there are no hidden extras. Long-term hire (ie more than six months) works out significantly cheaper per day.

What’s the minimum hire period?

Tanks are hired for a minimum of one week. Many of our competitors offer four-week terms as standard.

Can you deliver my tank by tomorrow?

Yes, next-day delivery is available for almost all tanks. We might even be able to deliver it today. Give us a call to find out.

What’s the biggest capacity you offer?

Our tanks go up to an enormous 111m3 (25,000 gallons).

Do you have a loading charge?

No, all services are included in the price we quote you. We will load and unload your tank using our 20-tonne forklift and we are happy to load to your vehicles if required.

What features come as standard?

All tanks come with 4″ ASA 150 flanged fill-and-discharge lines as standard. These can be fitted with either 206 Weco, 2″ BSP nipples, hydrant fittings, cam locks, 2″ ball float valves and 2″, 3″ or 4″ Bauer connectors, or they can be fitted out to your requirements. Tanks also come complete with a 4″ goose-neck vent, top-hinged manway, 1″ clear PVC level indicator and lifting strops and shackles (for lifting when empty only).

What’s the lead-in time for a customised tank?

All tanks come as standard with most of the features you’ll need, but they will also be fitted out to your requirements so, unless your tank requires extensive fabrication, it can still be with you tomorrow.

Do your tanks come with lifting equipment?

All our tanks come pre-slung and certified in accordance with relevant regulatory bodies.

Can I collect my tank?

Yes, if you have the right haulage equipment, you are welcome to pick up your tank from our Great Yarmouth base.  Most customers, however, prefer to have their tanks delivered.

How much space will I need to clear for my tank?

Our 111m3 tanks cover an area 12.5m by 3.7m – but most are much smaller. You’ll need to prepare the ground and leave enough space for the tank to be unloaded by lorry or crane. If space is an issue, consider hiring a vertical tank.

How long can I keep the tank?

You can keep your tank for as long as you need it. Some of our tanks have been on site for six years and are still going strong. If you have any maintenance issues, we will carry out repairs for you on site.

Can you supply a tank for offshore?

Yes – many of our single-skin and bunded tanks are suitable for offshore use. We also have a range of chemical tanks specifically designed for the offshore industry.

Can I take my tank abroad?

Yes – our tanks have been used in Norway, Denmark and Kazakhstan. We only deliver within the UK, so you would need to pick up your tank from our Great Yarmouth base if you want to transport it internationally.

Are your tanks clean?

Yes, we clean them with detergent and high-pressure cleaning equipment before they are released for delivery.

Can my tank be painted in my corporate colours?

Yes, we can paint your tank to your requirements. You are welcome to add your own logo stickers once the tank is on your site. We can also arrange for an internal specialist lining if you need it.

Can you collect my tank when I have finished with it?

Yes, we can pick up your empty tank when you no longer need it.
