Carrying heavy loads can be done one of two ways – the hard way or the easy way. The hard way involves straining backs and lots of cussing. The easy way utilizes something like the appliance hand truck Industrial Pipe and Steel has on sale for $75.15.

It’s handy to have around when moving heavy appliances because of the straps and supplementary rollers for stairs and obstructions. Just strap your large load to the truck and tilt. Of course you can still knock holes in the wall or run over the nice people helping you move, but that’s what pizza is for.

    I prefer one with an aluminum frame, why start with something thats heavy to begin with? Dual ratcheting straps do make a big difference, preferably with auto recoil.

    If I’m going up stairs, a stairclimber

    I agree with PutnamEco or at least add a second strap lower down.
    If someone’s helping you, don’t let them lift the load from the front as it will push your hands down and possibly lift the load off the foot. Run the hand truck backwards over rough ground as you’ll be pulling it up out of the holes rather than pushing it into them.

    PutnamEco: yeah, but not everyone has $1700 to spend on a motorized stair-climbing hand truck :-p (Heck, for that price, I expect it to be automated, too. And maybe know how to drive itself around the building.)
