    Old thread?? Lol

    What's wrong with a solid dolly? Get one of the big ones with straps for moving appliances.

    Rent a stair climbing dolly. $79/day at Sunbelt. Handled my 600lb safe with ease.



    I wonder if he already moved it?

    Best way is to call professionals and have them do it! Having moved 'real' safes myself, and paid professionals, I'll gladly pay somebody else every time from now on!

    If it within your home. They will slide on hard floors quite easy with a big fluffy blanket under them.
    You need more than a garbage can dolly. Either hard wheels or make sure their is lots of air in the tube wheels.
    And friends. You gotta know somebody.
