    Any recommendations? screwfix do a roughneck but it's only 165mm wide, which isn't very generous considering the weight of a single sheet.

    I have to shift some 12.5mm plasterboard on my own.

    Thank y'all kindly.

    you could always modify it with a bit of ply and upstaged to lengthen it.
    It's not too hard to knock one up out of ply but allow for your hands.
    hard to beat for a tenner

    The roughneck looks like a one at each end job to me, the more I look at it.

    I have one of those and have used it to carry plasterboard by myself; it makes it much easier.
    It’s absolutely strong enough, and being longer wouldn’t help.
    I find it helps if you’re lifting it up and putting it down onto a support at both ends (I had a couple of sandbags) so that there is a gap in the middle where you can insert/remove the carrier.

    The next option would be something with wheels.
