My plan is next week I'm building two 4'x4' platforms both with 10" Pneumatic wheels just like my brew rig has. I brew in my front garage and ferment in my back garage. So the fermenters are moved full over about 300 feet of crushed concrete driveway (or snow this time of year). As of now I just strap it to a 2 wheel dolly and move that way.
My 35 gallon conical has 4 legs and each will be bolted down. The BH will have the legs bolted down using the nuts that the feet are in now but I'll also add some eye-bolts to the platform and run straps from the top of the legs down to the eye-bolts.
Being that I'm not carbing in the BH I don't care about using the CO2 to rack. In fact I would rather not if I don't have to. Gravity never runs out mid transfer and it's free.
