FWIW: We moved about 15 or so tube type transmitters easily by removing the plate transformers and rolling them and the transmitters on pieces of 2" iron pipe (individually of course).  Three guys can make short work of the task this way.

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.

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?
