Load as-is on a flatbed landscape trailer. Iíve used my boat trailer to move one as well.
Unless you have to take apart to get in your yard I wouldnít do that.
Then float them to site with barrels or thick foam mats. Also moved one once w two older pontoon boats nose to nose. We just set on front decks of the boats.

Big box truck, if the outer dimensions of the lift are narrower than the biggest box truck you can find.

That said, I've used my scissors style pontoon trailer on a few lifts. Easy to get onto the trailer. A little 'tippy' since the trailer wheelbase width is so narrow, so I keep the center of gravity as low to the ground as I can. And am very slow around corners.

I was thinking it would be too wide to just set on a trailer. The one Iím looking at is a little over 2hrs away and Iíll be crossing Ohio-Pennsylvania-New York state lines.

+2 for the landscape trailer. One on you can remove the feet and the width when centered should be about the same as the trailer fenders. I've hauled several this way for 1-1.5 hours without issue.
Strap it down good and away you go.

I've transported using a pontoon trailer. Dropped the back legs about a foot off the ground to prevent tipping.

You can only be 8.5' wide before its considered a wide load.

I'll pull a 10' wide boat lift around the lake roads for a few miles, but I wouldn't go much further than that.

If you lay it on it's side, how wide would it be then?

Iím waiting on the other dimensions from the seller. I could only imagine the tickets and fines driving through 2 non home states with a non permitted oversized load.
