Moving Tips

Ok, so as some may know and many may not. I am about to close on a house and have to move my tanks the 15 miles between here and there. Does anyone have any tips to help ease the stress of the move? For the fish or myself. I have one extra tank that i will take first and drop a currently in use filter on, to cycle the water as long as i can before i have to start moving the rest of the tanks. The small tanks (4g and 5.5) i am just goin to suran wrap over the top and move with water in them. My 30g planted tank ill drain low as i can but leave scaped, with fish transported via 5g bucket. The 100g will get torn completely down, drained, and rescaped once at the house (going on a new stand also). The main stress on the fish will be going from municiapl water to well, without much time to cycle the water into tanks as i will only have a week to complete moving the entirety of my apartment to the house before i have to turn in the keys here.
