    if it is that massive why not hire a crane. It could work out a lot cheaper.

    Stopwatch, time is money.
    Time yourself for one carry then multiply

    Bill of materials for the base lift divided by how much can be reasonably carried by one person at a time, multiplied by the time to walk 2x (from truck to job) multiplied by the amount of lifts 2x for erection and dismantle

    So simple example. 8ft base lift, 2 minutes there and back (no boards/hand rail)

    4x 21ft carried 1 at time = 8 minutes
    4x 8ft carried 4 at a time = 2 minutes
    3x 5ft carried 3 at a time = 2 minutes
    1x 10ft carried 1 at a time = 2 minutes
    bucket of fittings, one trip = 2 minutes

    total walk time = 32 minutes approx for erection/dismantle 50% your hourly labour rate.
