my LGS also said the takin into the house was not part of his deal. get some really strong heavy duty straps. as many of your big beefy friends as you can. and go slowly. otherwise find a professional mover.

The guys who moved mine had teflon sticks to move it over the carpet. Cool !

Get the pro's to do it or rent a electric lift dolly usually about $50 and get 4 reasonably fit guys to help. four 2x10's will move it on the lawn and plywood will work ok on tile.

Same here. One of those fellows looked a lot like a bear.

If you can take the door off,
makes a differance.
AND,
if you could make it look like a refrig.,
no need for the neighbors knowing.

Thanks for the help, guys. I'm thinking I may just leave it to the pros. One of the guys over at gander mountain today said there's a guy somewhere here in Marion county that specializes in moving gun safes, and only charges 30 cents a pound to bring it in and place it. Its more than twice that much to order the white glove service online. I'm gonna head back over there tomorrow and see if I can get his contact info.

Dude! That's a HOT idea. I have a really nice pair off moving straps with handles that would work great as well but the gold ball idea kicks a$$.

Until you look at the mini ruts in your laminate or hardwood floors. I can't imagine the psi on the points of contact of the golf balls and floor.

A co-worker told me about this idea when I got mine. He said it was fine over a wood floor. He told me that it was funny to watch the other guys wife chase after the balls as they shot out from under the safe.
