I'm looking to purchase a second gun safe that is quite a bit heavier than the one I have now. Essentially, I need to know three things before I make the purchase:

1. Can the stairs take the weight?
2. How big can I go and still maneuver around the landing in my basement.
3. What's the biggest safe they will move down steps.

One I have my eye on is 1600 lbs or so, but I don't want it to live in my garage, so it would be nice to know what is feasible before I spend my cash.

Thanks!

To piggyback on this since it's getting semi close to time.

Any suggestions for movers that would have refrigerator dollies and just a couple to 4 big dudes? My 210g tank will need moving. Thick glass but still somewhat fragile. I'd have the truck, really just need the experienced labor and dolly since it was almost a disaster getting it into this place. (New place fortunately simple. )

Try this, and he can move a very large safe down stairs. And he is out of Greeley, but services NOCO.

I gave Chris at D&B a call. Very personable and helpful, but unfortunately, his large capacity safe mover is currently out of commission. He is going to try and get me a reference for a business acquaintance of his, but I will still take recommendations.

Chris is a stand up guy. I have used him in the past while working at various shops and he always has been a pleasure to do business with. My stairs help up a 700lb+ safe on dolly and the small pallet it is attached to. Wasn't easy but it can be done.

I used a guy named Clif when i move 3 years ago. If i recall, he was out of Fort Collins. The only contact info i have is his number: 970-217-3520.

I was happy with his work. He took it out of one basement and moved it into another basement. No problems. I think my safe is in the 600 pound range.

'Nuther Opie011 vote.

I have had dealings with Duffy Crane & Hailing and Precision Industrial. Both do top notch work.

I'm assuming a 500-700lb aquarium would be ballpark similiar to a safe for them. Assuming they were willing to work on it, any idea ball park what kind of fee if I have the truck? (up out of a basement then up a couple steps into a room right off the front door in new house.)

Talking $150 or much more?

Are you sure your 210 weighs 500-700? I've carried a 180 gallon with me and another guy...

It's a semi older supposedly custom built tank with exceptionally thick glass. I had a basically professional body builder on one end, then myself and like a 45 year old guy on the other. We barely survived, weight lifter had basically grip and other injuries that had him not lifting or doing a ton for more than a week.

Also had to go down really tight stairs and goes on a 3 foot stand to place it at eye level doesnt help.

Dan D rental in Cheyenne has one of those 3 wheel'd stair hand trucks you can rent. Don't know the cost, or if it would be worth the drive. You could check around some other rental shops to see if they have one.

something similar to this: http://www.powermate.info/

When I was looking everyone I talked to said they wouldn't take any safe weighing more than 900lbs down stairs. They said by the time you get the safe, the dolly, and the 1 or 2 guys you are real close to the limit that stairs can take.
