biggrin Engine transportation

G'day all, I've arranged to buy a new 4.0 six for my car, but it will need to be shifted up to the top of the driveway, which is fairly steep. Normal trolleys would not be strong enough as far as I'm aware. :sad: Does anyone know of any way around this problem? Affordable or rentable high capacity trolleys?
Any advice appreciated.
