    It would be nice to have measurements so we could figure out whether it will fit in the car. Or did I miss this info three times?

    Hi there, you can find info here: and also: Rain barrels do not fit inside the trunk of most passenger vehicles however if you plan to transport your rain barrel this way; you must bring rope to secure it. One rain barrel will fit in the back seat and a second rain barrel may fit in the reclined front passenger seat, however this can obstruct vision and may be unsafe. Please take care to protect vehicle upholstery by covering it with plastic, cardboard, paper, blankets or towels to prevent exposure to any dirt or moisture that may have come in contact with your rain barrel.
