When out comes to tanks or fish, I think most CL posters list because they want people to come and get it, rather than loading it all up themselves and driving it around. Some people will even expect you to break down a running tank yourself! Plus, who wants to net, bag and transport fish to meet someone who may or may not show up? Most furnature people are the same way.
As far as safety, I think most fish posters would be "safe" people but certainly alert people or take with you when you go. I would consider it polite to let the person know you are bringing additional people to their home, they are likely as frightened/concerned with meeting strangers as you are. Plus, if they refuse, that could be a red flag for you. Don't want to end up in a hole rubbing lotion on your skin! ;)
I think the biggest danger is unknowingly going to a home in a bad area/neighborhood. If you don't know your town well, speak to other people. A map book is also a great idea, and a good thing to keep ithe car anyway.
