?? moving a 4 post lift

I'm moving approximately 12 miles and I would like to move my Eagle 7000 4 post lift, without disassembling it. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I've done this with two lifts. They kind of are a pain to disassemble.

We put the lifts up on their casters, and lowered the ramps to their lowest point allowed with the casters on. Then we welded some 1 1/2" angle between the posts, kind of like making a temporary rectangular frame around the outside of the posts just above the ramps. Followed by welding cross pieces to the temporary frame for rigidity, and then pulling the whole thing up onto a flat bed car hauler. The frame and the cross braces kept the whole thing rigid (or rigid enough) while moving it. After relocating the lift, cut the welded pieces off. I suppose we could have drilled and bolted instead.

Just a couple of thoughts. With the ramps down low the lift should be pretty stable. What about using tie down straps or some come-alongs or chains and boomers around the top or diagonally to stiffen it up. Or just secure it down from the top of each post to the trailer. Something to think about.
