So now you're going to drag it into the building? Why don't you just take a coil to the furthest point of the building and uncoil it back to your truck?
I don't know why I don't do that. Is that how everyone else does it?

Everyone has there own way of doing things. I hang my hoses rather than having them on a reel. For a large set up, I take a length, (usually 100-125 feet) to the furthest point I am going to clean. Uncoil the hose as you walk back to the truck. Same for the vac hose. I coil my hoses with an over/under technique that lets me drop the hose and pull it without it tangling.

Sometimes, we are doing 350 foot set ups. We will prespray, moving the hose as necessary. Mainly strata hallways. As we complete cleaning on the first hallway, the helper is coiling the hoses in the stairwell. Next hallway, we can prespray going forward with the helper feeding the hose. As we progress with the job, we remove and coil hoses and rehang in the truck. By the time we complete the job, there is minimal hoses to wrap up. Once you establish your system, it is quick and neat.
