I have a 3' x4" dolly made from 1/4' angle iron with 6" iron casters I use my engine hoist to lift the compressor and set it on the dolly ,use vice grip clampe to clamp the legs to the dolly then move it where ever I need it..Piece of cake...with a smaller one like the lumber stores sell .a simple movers dolly should work but be sure to clamp the legs to the dolly so it wont tip over

Sounds like the pressure switch was screwed up, compressure sutting down cause it thinks it is up to pressure, I'd start with that.

moving a compressor is easy.

i have a vertical 80 gallon quincy compressor with the motor and pump on the top. i wanted to move it to another place in my shop, about 60 feet away. i got some wood pallets and used my floor jack to raise the compressor enough to put some wood, 2x6's etc, stacked high enough to level out the compressor enough to where i could jack from the other side. walking it uphill was easy for me, but i had access to several good strong wood pallets, and lots of scrap 2x6 and 2x4 cutoff pieces of wood. just block as you go, and you can even get it high enough to load into the back of a pickup. be sure you have a couple of volunteers helping though. even slinging it with an engine hoist would have worked.
