      I guess a good old fashion fireplace shovel. It seems the ones that use the old BBQ base would be easier because you could just carry it to dump it.

        Agreed. Most of these are deep enough that shoveling would be difficult. Plus many appear to have a gravel base. They might have to invest in a vacuum cleaner meant to handle fireplace ashes.
