Has anyone figured a way to lift your 14'sct alone

I have been a champion of Astronomy until I got married. Knew ...a heck of a lot. Unfortunately , Mariage tends to detour interests.
Now I wish to delve back into the abyss.
I purchased a MEADE sct 14inch. It is very heavy but the awkwardness of lifting it makes it feel like a greased pig.
Have anyone of you figured out a way to lift the bugger by yourself?
Without residual pain??
I'd be indebted to you for any type of telescope 'weight lifting' that can be achieved by a mortal man.

It was a bit of a struggle for him but he did it well.
I figure a 14 incher would not be too much more difficult.
Like I said..Ì figure`.
