This device that Pat linked is exactly what I have used on more than one occasion to move transmitters...  maybe you can find the set to rent somewhere-  it sure makes moving them drop dead easy.  

The Continental box will come apart into 3 rack sections, but it requires a LOT of disassembly to do it if you want to ever put it back together again. They are mechanically stable enough to move as a 3-rack unit and are really bottom heavy unless you take the HV transformer, chokes, etc. out first and then they are a piece of cake to move since that iron is well more than half the weight of the entire box.  My Continental General Installation guide says that model weight is right at 1,962 pounds... so treat it with respect as it is sure big enough to hurt someone, or worse.

Here's an example with a guy moving a safe. You can see how you can lifts the object just slightly from the floor for clearance through a low doorway. Also, it doesn't stick out to the side if that's tight.
