Tough moving situation

So I am moving in the next couple days, I will be moving a 55 gallon and 29 gallon tank. I will try and keep this thread updated with pictures.

Here is the tricky part. My lease at my current apartment says I need to be out of here by noon on Friday, but my new lease/apartment doesn't start until June 1st. I have talked to the new rental company and they said I can move in as soon as the current tenant moves out. His lease ends the same time mine does I believe. However, it is a two bedroom and the landlord said that his roommate moved out, so there is an empty room there.
I have been trying to contact this guy to see if he would let me at least move my fish tanks into the spare room, but I don't know if this guy is even in the country, I heard he was an international student, and whenever I swing by the place he is either not home or ignoring me. I was knocking on his door today and I swear I heard someone inside.
Anyway, just a tough situation, it wouldn't be an issue at all if I didn't have the tanks and could just keep everything in a U Haul for a day or two. I don't want to be forced to have to set up my tank somewhere else for a day or two, my parents live an hour away and I just don't want to go there.
Hopefully my fish will do okay in 10-18 gallon sterilite containers.

Oh, that does sound complicated.
So if I'm not mistaken that's a whole week? Or can you get in earlier probably? Do you have any friends that might be willing to hold onto the fish for a couple days? If they're not terribly sensitive fish they shall probably do fine in heated containers for couple days though.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Yeah, I have to be out of here Friday completely, and the people in my new apartment are supposed to be gone then too. It is just going to stink because I may have to rip down all of my tanks Friday morning by noon and move in in the afternoon possibly.
I have piranhas so I can't just throw my fish in a buddies tank :\

Yikes :0 Do you have any friends or family that would let you set up a temporary home for the fish?

Or any local pet stores with an empty tank that would be willing to house them for you (for a fee I'm sure)?

I hope you're able to figure something out soon. Good luck and keep us posted.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
