Best way to move a large tank

We are having tile put in to the house. What is the best way to move two 75 gal tanks to another room and back? It is just me and my husband so the lightest way would be the best.

Put everything in 5 gallon buckets and then move the tank empty

Use totes use an air pump & heater in them if needed. I moved 100+ fish 2 months ago using totes & 5g buckets. Just made sure to provide oxygen & heat

Depending on if every things on the same floor. You could use furniture slides. You would still have to take most water out but you wouldn't have to diSmantle the tank.

I was looking at those forearm forklifts or the sliders ^_^. I have two 75 gal tanks that have to go in to the bed room for a week and then back out. We are having new floors installed
