    use washing up liquid as a lubricant, makes it a hell of a lot easier.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    Get some 3mil hardboard form ba and q or wickes and keep it in the loft for exactly this eventuality!
    grippy side goes down on floor, shiny side upwards, real strong and protects the floor, and machine slides perfect!
    once done, put it back into the loft!

    An old bedsheet, folded over a couple of times, works well when tucked under the feet.
