Father time and a dodgy shoulder is now hindering me when lifting integrated fridge/freezers into units

Are there any lifting gadgets etc that anyone can recommend

many thanks

I made up a platform to match the base height. I found it easier to tip the fridge up on the platform and then slide it in to the unit.

I've used that method before when necessary, another pair of hands is a much simpler option.

Depends how strong you are I suppose. If you open the freezer door they are a doddle to lift in with 2 pairs of hands.
