Today, I had to move an entire 44U rack of servers, 4 each 4U, 3 were Windows (2012 R2, 2016, 2019) and 1 was Linux (Centos 7), plus the 1U HP 24/48 port gigabit switch, the 2U APC power, and 1U KVM. Talk about heavy, and talk about doing it slowly and carefully.
 
Down time was at a minimum, just 1 hour. It was a dev test rack so nothing to report as a production outage.
 
It was fun! the link below and picture is an example of what it was like.
