Wow, I brought mine home in the back of my Ford Focus ZX-4. Removed it myself too. Pulled the crate out as far as I could, set that end on the ground and wrestled the other end to the side and set it down. It's not that hard if you don't fear a hernia.
. For the record, I'm 5'8" and 170# soaking wet with a couple rocks in my pocket.
