Moving heavy equipment

I've got a lead on a full and working electron microscope.
It's on-topic because it's old and has some sort of
computerized digitizing unit. :-)

The console is 41" x 43" and weighs about 300 pounds.
The column is 33" x 33" and weighs about 1,200 pounds.
It'll suck at least 20 amps so I may need to wire
its own circuit.

It's wrapped and probably palleted at the pickup location.
They have a hand-fork to roll it to the loading dock.

I've lined up a big Diesel stake (flat-bed) truck.
It'll be about a 2-3 hour drive. We've got straps,
boards, tarps. I'm most concerned about getting it
*off* the truck and into my office or home basement.
Any other thoughts from the group?
