    I would fill the safe with balloons, then fill the house with water and float it into position.

    My version of the moving “slick sticks”. Made from reclaimed oak base and scrap pile UHMW. I have a pair of hydraulic dollies but they only get you close and won’t get you everywhere. Pipe works great on concrete but no way you would want it rolling across hardwoods or carpet.

    Been a customer of theirs for years. Fine people to work with especially if you only need scraps of stuff.

    I use some lifting dollies I made years ago. You put the gray foam taped part under what you want to move and ratchet strap around the item to hold these on. Then use the pipe handle I have to work the lifting cams to raise the load. I've moved all my safes by myself and used them to lift safes on or off anchor bolts. movers (1).JPG movers (2).JPG

    You did a real good job on those. I have a set of bigger hydraulic ones. Yep. They work really well. They just won’t get everywhere. I bought a little TL rated save that will barely fit into a small cubby in my carpeted closet. The think is 1,100 lbs empty. The slick sticks get me that last couple feet I need to go where the dollies won’t fit.
