Office IT moves - useful kit?

Hi,
we've got a lot of desk moves to do at our site, while we uplift the floors and recable with Cat6.  Standard midi PCs and twin-screen layouts, mostly.

I've got some rather tired old trolleys and skis that we use to move desks and some heavy furniture, but would like to buy something decent.  

Anyone got any recommendations?  I'm in the UK, so would prefer suppliers that are global or UK-based.

Any other top tips related to logistics of this would be much appreciated.  We've got around 30 desks per floor to uplift, and recable over a weekend, so anything that saves time would be fantastic.
Thanks, Danny

They are called "metal wire rolling shelving" or something similar. Small ones are "wire utility carts". Something that can carry a decent weight should be about $200
Cisco-eagle has nice stuff but it's heavy duty and this costs more. Amazon has some for $90 that say 600lbs but if you put too much on a shelf it can slip.

It's called a "desk mover" or desk lift or desk dolly.  Made specifically for moving desks.

This one is adjustable, and has angle brackets for cubicles:

There are a few styles available.  If the desk lift doesn't work, there are other types of moving equipment.  Even as fancy as an air cushion to float the object.

If you have heavy cabinets that you don't want to empty, you can use a pair of hydraulic lifts and web straps to hold them together.

Thanks guys, some good ideas in there, I'll check them out.

Not sure why the Mods removed the Windows 7 topic - has no-one ever moved a Windows 7 PC before and got experience to share?
