Indeed, unfortunately at the time of pickup it was not possible to borrow
a forklift from any location I could find - I even started calling
businesses and warehouses for private forklifts.
I had also considered a liftgate truck, just to use it's liftgate - but
none of those could be found either.
This was, at the time (given the window of opportunity to retrieve the
machine) the only reasonable (or unreasonable) option that I could come up
