Morgan Dahl from Miriam Vale, Queensland
When Morgan was just 18, he purchased his family’s block of land in Miriam Vale, Queensland. It’s land that has been sold through generations of his family – and last year he finally moved there with his wife, Chloe with the exciting plan to build their dream home.
Spanning 600 acres, they’ve adapted the land (originally used for tree farming) to run 70 head of cattle. They’re building their five-bedroom brick house on a ridge out-looking 400 acres of complete open country.
This is also the dream home they’ve chosen to start their family – how exciting!
Of course, when building a home in rural Australia, water sourcing and storing is top of mind.
Morgan was doing a lot of the build himself to cut down costs – electrical work, supplying appliances, and his neighbour helped by doing the dozer work.
It was through this neighbour, who’d recently installed a water tank on his own property, that Morgan discovered Pioneer Water Tank dealer, The Tank Specialists.
“I did extensive research of water tanks myself, but I kept coming back to The Tank Specialists because I value supporting local businesses,”
Having such a solid experience with The Tank Specialists, Morgan’s neighbour was quick to recommend the company when Morgan started thinking about on-site water storage.
“Pioneer was also the cheapest option – I now find myself worrying when people say how much they’ve paid for tanks when choosing other suppliers, because Pioneer was the best choice cost-wise by far.”
Back when Morgan purchased the tank in October 2020, The Tank Specialists were offering a special promotion – however he wasn’t ready for the tank to be installed until March 2021.
This wasn’t a problem for the Pioneer Dealer, who were happy to hold the tank until Morgan was ready.
“When I did call them in March to say the sand pad was complete, they organised the tank to be installed in two weeks’ time.
“However, a severe storm pushed other installations back, so they ended up coming to the property the day after I called, and the tank was installed right there and then!
“The team were really helpful throughout the entire process. There was one time where my house builder asked how tall the tank was and I realised this measurement might impact the build.
“I called Mark and Trish from The Tank Specialists, and right there on the spot they measured their own tank (which is the same size) and inlet pipe, to make sure the height of my tank wouldn’t be an issue.
“They provide next level service – that’s for sure!”
