The best part is that many of these things will be either free or low costing. Especially if you have friends.
Friends & Family: Speaking of having friends, the more the merrier when it comes to moving heavy objects. Instead of moving things by yourself invite some friends over to help. You might have to spend some money ordering pizza for everyone to say thank you, but it will make the process easier and more fun.
2-Wheeler: The staple of the moving industry, the 2 wheelers has been making moving easier for years. While it is a simple device made of 2 wheels, a handle for you, and a platform for lifting items, it makes moving items incredibly easy. You can purchase one at several stores or ask your friends, chances are at least one has a 2-wheeler you can borrow.
Straps: There are moving straps made specifically for moving heavy items. You will need someone to help you move while using straps. The basic principle is the straps go beneath what is being moved and around either the shoulders or the arms of the people moving it. This gives them a better grip and more support when lifting.
