but yes, the space required for them is overall unwieldy for its purpose compared to a benchtop mill/drill. kinda just went thru that mental exercise of "do we have space for that?" recently ourselves...
Can confirm, you can fit an entire 9x42 Bridgeport through a 30" door frame.
Moving them wasn't that bad, as long as you had a bunch of steel pipes / rods to act as rollers, a good come-along winch, and some good 5-6 foot rigging prybars. Once you got it onto the steel rollers, moving them through the school/shop was pretty easy.
The only concern would be if multiple floors were involved without any ramps.
