I would have definitely rented a diesel box-van with a ten-speed for
that one. You have big brass ones, sir.
I moved a machine roughly that size in a regular 24' Penske box truck
once. I had enough ratchet straps, but the problem was that the wood
tie-down strapping wasn't beefy enough to stop the machines rolling.
They got a bit dented.
Imagine moving a machine ten times that big, or more. I've done it. It
sucked. It was worth it.
