Yup - when I had my O2K, the only reasonable way to move it as far as I was

I wasn't willing to pull it apart into small enough components to move
individually, but I guess that could be an option.

As someone who has move these (hi Dave and Brian) I can also attest that
 moving them in a standard van is not going to be an easy task, and
 probably not logistically possible. These are BIG and HEAVY.
