how do you move a giant pumpkin?

I am curious, when you grow abnormally large veggies (like pumpkins) how the heck do you move them?!
I am wanting to grow an Atlantic giant pumpkin this year and while I have my doubts it'll become HUGE (mainly because I'm just growing it for fun but won't be dedicating any extra time to encourage it to grow bigger), it still makes me curious how you guys move it to get it weighed for a competition! Please, enlighten me!

Put a warehouse pallet on 4 blocks next to the vines. When you get a good pumpkin set on a vine, put it on the pallet to grow out. Move the pallet in the fall with poles run thru the sides and some, uh...pallbearers :)
