I have a 3 foot square plastic slide if the floor looks like it will get harmed. I do call for help (we have 2 way radios, and 8 other people working here) if it's too big to handle alone.    ;)

3'x5' slider mat makes moving everything a piece of cake.
Stacked units or double wall ovens are a 2man job.
