moving heavy over-sized equipment around
When it come to equipment and turbolifts, I remember this from history.

When the German scientists were designing the A4 rocket (V2), one of the criteria was it had to be able, laying on it's side on a railcar, to pass through all European railroad tunnels.

It seem to me that the majority of the equipment (some exceptions) aboard the Enterprise would be capable of being disassembled to the point that it would be able to fit inside of a turbolift car. The turbolift is the ship's transportation system, that and the corridors. If you wanted to move something from the shuttle flight deck up to the bow of the saucer section, you pretty much stuck using the turbolift. Things aboard the ship will be specifically designed to enter the lift car. Everything will come apart.

There will be exceptions of course.
