how do i manage an enormous chest

i have an enormous chest and it's very heavy.
it's wood. i made it myself. it's about 1.5 metres squared and one metre high. i use it to store "stuff" in and i want to put casters on it, but not significantly increase its height.
the problem is that all the casters or wheels that would take the kind of weight of the chest are gi frickin' normous.
all the casters/wheels i've seen with a lower profile have quite low weight restrictions.
can i just put heaps more small casters on the box or do i have to put the huge casters on that fit the overall weight of my chest?
i believe the chest weighs in the vicinity of about 100kilograms.... and when you fill it with all the stuff i keep in it.... maybe 150-200 kilograms.
help me before i set fire to it in frustration.... my physics, like gravity, sucks.
