I've been getting back pains and they're not going away. I really need to find a solution since I can't keep on lifting floor buffers, burnishers, portable steam carpet cleaning equipment, autoscrubbers, etc, into my van.

What's a good cost-effective solution? I thought of everything from bolting a winch onto the roof of the van and using a foot switch to help lift, etc. I need something fairly cheap for now, it's a 1995 Chevy Astro van if that helps.
