no tricks just following common recommendations for weight lifting, back straight, stable legs position, lifting with the legs.
That applies to lifting from the floor to the table table and to the car.
I use a cart to haul them around if the surface allows it, otherwise I put the back plate on them and carry on the back, and again - the back is always straight
They're much easier to carry long distances on your back, so if possible, put a plate on them and walk them around. Having a truck has made loading and unloading a lot easier than when we just had the car.
South Santa Monica Bay/Los Angeles California, USA, Planet Earth, a blue world 71% water & third planet from a G2 yellow dwarf star, in the Milky Way Galaxy two thirds of the way out from the center on the inner edge of the Orion–Cygnus arm.
Grab valves (not isolator crossbar!), one for each hand --perform partial/modified Hang Clean lift and load into truck. (Best lift technique if the liftover distance from the ground to the bed of your truck is not more than 20 inches.)
Tilt doubles, grab neck of one tank with right hand and hold bottom end of other tank with left hand --perform partial/modified Front Squat lift technique and load into truck.
With either option, recommend first starting off in the weightroom of a gym/health club for a couple of months. . .
Lift by valves onto a chair
Sit on chair
Walk to destination
I carry them on the passenger seat of my car and do the same thing in it. If I'm gear up at the water, I'll try to find a pier or something I can put them on, so all I have to do is put my back to the pier.
