Lifting Tables

Hi,
Something I haven't needed, coming from 5" gauge, but having now ordered some pretty hefty 7 1/4 inch gauge stock, I'm left wondering how to move them around the workshop and into and out of a car or trailer.

Can anyone recommend some good makes of lift tables. They need to carry about 150kg or so, be as low to the ground as possible and would be great if they could lift to about 4ft or 1.2m. An added bonus would be if they could be light enough to load up into a car or trailer so they could be used on location, as 99% of the places we go will not have lift facilities.

Thanks
Mike

Just to say, I found a motorbike lifting table on Amazon. It goes under lots of different trade names but is small enough and light enough to be transported to site. In fact two of them joined together will be half the price of a scissor lift. Just bought some Bar steel for rails which I'll attach to it. I'll get a second double scissor lift for the workshop, as the carriages etc will be stored in shelving.
