It used to be about 45 on Amazon. Everything has gone up just about! I assume material supplies? Workers off sick type thing?

It looks like Argos still does the 160l box on wheels for 35 if the info i just saw is still in date.
I still don't know how to create a link.

You just click on the web address bar so it highights it then select copy, then on this page you tap on the forum box and then select paste . Easier on a laptop than a phone I find. Would it be portable enough with wheels on? If taking it to another house.

I actually don't think there is much choice at all for 50 for anything approx 80 x 50. 60 maybe. And for perspex tanks probably the Duna multy and an 8" wheel. I had some angst about using an 8" wheel even for a week in a holiday cage so managed to find a low height 11" wheel that fitted in my holiday cage. I am sure 8" would be fine for a week though. 9" is better but then they'd have to buy an expensive wheel like the silent runner. Although actually a 12" flying saucer would probably be fine for a week.

An 8in wheel wouldn't work because i have one in the playground for the dwarfs. The Syrians try to have a go but Jack whose a bit of a porker can't run in it.

I have a Duna Multy as a spare for a dwarf but it is too low for a Syrian's wheel and the 12in saucer would take up most of the space. I have one of those in the playground as well and the Syrians run on it but more so on the upright wheels.

A couple of weeks isn't long for us but it's a fairly long time for a hamster.

I would have thought a bin cage with wheels would be easier to transport and the Argos one has a pull along handle.

I don't think there's a big enough, new cage available for 50 and a bin cage is the way to go. It could be bought and meshed for just under 50.

Thank you for the link info.

the savic orbital wheel worked for me in the zoozone, it's quite close to the ground unlike other 11-12 inch wheels.

I was thinking of something to fit in the standard duna multy It's only 31.5cm tall. I know a 9" silent runner fits but not sure if a 10" wheel would fit.
