Moving Hot Tub

What's the best way to move a large hot tub?

It is about 400-450 gallons, about 7 foot square. Partly on brick patio and parly on gravel. I need to shift it about 5 feet toward the gravel. Only have access to three sides, but it's just a straight line move. Once it is moved, what do I have to worry about as far as leveling, etc.

Electric will be moved, but that is not a problem.

Thanks for any advice.

Lay down several pieces of water pipe, I used 1.5 inch PVC , as rollers and give it a shove. Drain first of course. I just move mine from one side of the patio to the other while I painted the floor. Piece of cake.

Thanks. I posted this some time ago, so have already moved it. I came up with the same thing. Levered it up, slid two 2" PVC pipes under it and rolled it right into place.
