moving ramp Moving? Don't carry those boxes, make a ramp!

MAKE subscriber Mike Figueroa wrote in to share this simple tip for moving. If you’ve got a lot of boxes that need to go downstairs, just set up a ramp and save yourself the lifting. Not recommended for delicate items, of course.

It seems like a simple idea, but I’ve never thought to try it (and I have moved out of a good number of second-floor apartments). I have tried other things, such as carrying the boxes in stages to different way points, to give myself time to rest and so I can prop doors open for short amounts of time without worry about my cat escaping. Know of any other good techniques for moving?
