Experience moving a caboose?

The Rural Retreat Depot Foundation would like to relocate the local caboose
to a new location on the west end of the depot, and we are looking for
advice on how to do it. The attached photo shows where it is now, and it
will move to the foreground of the photo. It has to move about 80 feet,
across a flat paved surface. How much does it weigh? Is this best done by
laying track or using a crane? Any referrals to companies that you know
have done this? Can a caboose be disassembled to some degree to make the
move easier? Thanks very much.
