Distribution Pump

Can anyone advise:

My tank and filters are in the garage and I work from a 350ltr van tank. What’s the quickest way of getting water from one tank to another?
Currently using a pond pump but takes around 1.5hrs for full tank to be moved over.
Needs to be smallish in size - I use XLine baffles tank so access in to top is restricted or something that can be fitted externally to draw the water out.

Just an idea, could you fit a washing machine pump someway. It would have to be externally fitted at the bottom of the tank so it's easily primed.

A washing machine pump would be good. Low cost,
and good flow rate. depending on the required vertical lift the connecting hose should have an internal diameter of between half to threequarter inches. (smaller for greater lift).
