Anyone tried carrying a gunsafe downstairs..
 
The weight scares me a little, has anyone been able to do it themselves without killing someone in the process? The one I am looking at is around 800lbs and rated for I think 40 guns. I will probibly pay the 250.xx for the pros to deliver and place it.

Nope, mine went up the deck and into bedroom. I had son and nephew to help. I wouldn't want to tackle a stairs.

Me & a buddy rode mine down the cellar stairs like a sled.It was in the box and we just let it go slow and it worked perfect.

My buddy lifted his into the basement with a crane before they built the main floor onto the house. There is no way that thing is coming out short of a fire or cutting a big ol' hole in the roof and floors.

If you pay to have them deliver and setup, you might want to make sure they are bonded/insured. Just in case !!!!

Thanks I hadn't thought about movers bonded/insured...
 
I never thought about that, I figured if they are advertized at the store that would be a given. I guess it teaches me again not to assume...

Get the movers. I used to manage a moving and storage firm and if you hire the movers, for one thing, they carry their own insurance. If you drop it, you eat the damages. They will bring 4-6 guys and probably a piano-board (used to move big heavy stuff) and they will manage it. Measure it all to make sure it will fit around corners and thru doors before they come out there.
