The 7 gal fermenter could probably be carried like you do your carboys or buckets.
Also there is no reason you could not just transfer the wort and finished beer in buckets and leave the fermenter in the closet.
I think I will move to kegging before I get a conical. That would save and steps when bottling because I could just transfer to the corny right in the closet.

My 14.5 Blichmann's are heavier that hell when full. . .I don't recommend ever moving them full if you can help it. I leave my fermenters right where they are. I pump into them and keg out of them, and clean them in place.
