All very good suggestions so far, but you’ll also want at least one Johnson bar, aka lever dolly; two would be better. That will help lift the cabinets so
the rollers can be slid under. I’m semi-pro at moving this sort of stuff as a few of the other list members can testify. Likely you’ll want an all terrain forklift or a Bobcat with forks on it to lift it out of the door and onto whatever truck will take
it to its next destination. Don’t do this yourself- get at least one other person; two would be better.

Subject: Moving Heavy Objects
So I'm about to remove a Continental 816R-2C. Rumor has it these transmitters can be pretty heavy. I know it can be removed because it was at one point installed, but I'm trying to "work smarter not throw my back out" as a wise man once
said. The previous engineer informs me they muscled it through the doorway with crowbars and it was a pretty tight fit.
Any wisdom on making my life easier that doesn't involve cutting a bigger hole in the wall?
What's worked for you in the past? Ramps and rollers, simple-machines style? Pallet jacks? Magnetic levitation?
