Can anyone recommend a vendor local to MINEHEAD/TA24 that sells used IBCs for rainwater storage.

There are numerous suppliers on line, but delivery often costs as much as the container if not very local, hence my preference for a local supplier.

Are there any breweries nearby?

We used to be able to get them from a local brewery for around 40 - they'd been used for transporting orange juice concentrate, so they smelled quite nice (even after a couple of years in some cases). Smile

They are used for all sorts of things from fruit juice to detergents so have a look around a local industrial estate and you might get one free if you have the trailer to collect it.

Now got one, but had to pay a fair bit for delivery as could not find any locally.
