I recently inherited a gun safe. It's about 600 lbs. I got it into my garage without much trouble, but I need to get it into my basement. The kicker is that I need to go around the house to get there (recently installed new flooring and I really don't want to risk scratches, dents, etc. + the basement stairs have a turn that is probably too tight to manage with the safe).
My front yard slopes down a bit, but not too steep. The side yard and back yard to the basement door are on approximately the same grade. Terrain is not exactly smooth, but not too rough.
I was thinking of getting a handful of 4" PVC pieces cut to the width of the safe. Then, laying the safe down on its back and rolling it with 2-3 pieces under safe at all times. I can probably get 2 guys to help me, but one will be my father-in-law (too old to be humping a safe, but ok to be moving the PVC). Does this sound like it will work?
Thanks for your help!
