a furniture dolly (a skateboard consisting of casters and a framework made
of 2x4's), sometimes padded with carpet (about $15 at Harbor Freight)
They're also a source for tie-downs, ramps, and for "ramp ends" (brackets
to put on the end of your own 2x8's

Do you have an adequate winch/"come-along"?

Is it 800 pounds TOTAL, or is the largest piece 800 pounds?
(If 800 is just the total, then the smaller pieces won't be a problem)

If this is the one that I think that it might be, the current/previous
owner might have some use for an extra portable ramp, and maybe you could
work that into the deal?
