Shortly after getting into jukeboxes and pinballs, I bought a good fridge dolly from a friend at a moving company.  Best money I ever spent.  Makes life incredibly easy when transporting large, heavy objects like jukes.   When I bought my first juke (my Seeburg 201), I lowered it down my bent basement stairs on its back with a rope and the help of four friends.  Now, strap it to the dolly, and it is easy to get in and out of anywhere.
