And you need pretty BIG wheels if there is any kind of rough surface. I move around 45G garbage cans on a dolly I built. My first one was a $20 Harbor Freight special - it carried the weight, but the wheels were small -- every seam in the tile, and definitely going up on carpet, risked turning the can over as it would catch and stick. The cheap wheels also badly marked up the tile floor.
I bought some big (I think 4.5") no-mark wheels and built my own, and it is SO Much better, it can easily step over carpet and thresholds.
Wheels may sound like a good idea, but don't do it on the cheap -- you really need big, strong wheels or even if they work, they will still be a pain. They aren't terribly expensive, but they do need to be pretty large if you really plan to roll it full.
