Yeah it's pretty easy with 2 people. Cheers for the idea mate, mines running great. You have to screw it to the wall or it's pretty wobbly

I’ve just employed to a guy who is a chippie so I’m considering getting him to build me a customised rack but if not then I think I’ll be getting one of these sorted out.

Ive just had a guy make and fit a tidy rack for my van and he's making a number of boxes that will fit 2 of the 12" cube exo's with hoods for dispalys that i do, so im thinking although i like the pax rack i might get him to make something instead. Least this thread has be thinking. cheers guys.

I reckon with a good chippie you will make the same thing for real cheap. Even without a chippie you can make it cheaper. Good luck mate. Post some pics up when you do.

Looks good, given me something to think about.

Did your total cost include the tubs or not ?
I think I payed about £150 for the rack and 4 packs of 2 x shelves. That's including delivery which was £30.
tbh honest 50l RUBs are about £13, I always buy them from Argos cause it usually cheaper then ordering them online and pay delivery. I would always buy reptile stuff from Surrey reptile supplies cause they are really cheap. Also 888 reptiles which are a bit more expensive but their customer services are great in my experience. I payed for a hoverbator and cause they were out of stock and were not gonna get any more for a few months, they gave me the Exo terra incubator, 2 hatchling boxes and a big bag of vermiculite. Also they sorted me out a decent looking normal royal for a good price.
Just remember the bottom of the rack can be used as a shelf
