Handling Heavy Amps

There are several amps I’m interested in possibly purchasing but I’m dissuaded because of their weight. I’ve had lower back issues so I need to be careful. I live alone. Even if my wife was still alive she would not have been able to help much. Also Children live far. I see that many of you have these 60-100 pound behemoths and I wonder how do you manage. If I buy from my dealer he’ll load it in my SUV. However when I get home it will be difficult to get it out and onto the garage floor where I can place it on my handcart. Then when I get it next to my rack I need to maneuver it out of the box and up onto the rack. I guess I would need to see if my dealer would deliver it and place it on the rack. Probably for a fee. So that may work. But then if I need to paint, move furniture, resell the unit whatever I would need help. I think I can handle up to 40lbs. So how do you handle these amps? Is it a concern for you?  I’m spoiled by my Benchmark 12 lb AHB2. It’s also the reason I’ve been investigating Class D amps. 


If you buy a reasonably expensive component I’d bet the retailer would help you set it up at home. 

@jfrmusic have you auditioned Pass yet? Or is that on Monday together with the Bryston amp?

Just the Bryston on Monday.  Then the Accuphase P-4600 on Wednesday. Even though the dealer will deliver the 90 lb Pass that will just fit on my shelf seems really to big and heavy. However if both auditions leave me undecided I’ll go back and listen to the Pass. Actually my ABH2 is sounding pretty good with the new equipment but I still think I can improve on it.
