Revolution series safe
 
M thinking about ordering their 18 gun model. It's a liberty safe. I'm curious if anybody has ever had one delivered to their house before. I'm debating if it's worth it to pay the extra $200 to have them deliver it into the main room. Although it says only 0-4 steps. And do they mean footsteps? Or stair steps? Also the lock lights, can I add one on after I order the safe? Or do I need to have it added with my order?

I bought a 25 gun liberty about a year ago. (can't remember the model). I did not get it delivered. I had a couple of friends come over and help me unload it. It wasn't what I would call easy but it wasn't $200 worth of work. I will also tell you that they are easier to get out of the back of a pickup then they are to wheel down the ramp of a u-haul on a dolly.

I don't have a lock light but they can be added after market. Here is the first one I found on google.

So I should probably just drive to pick it up? My problem is it'd probably just be my father and I And a dolly.

I bought mine at gander mountain. They loaded it in my truck for me. It really only took 2 of us to actually move it but a third was helpful for balancing it an making sure we were going to clear turns and doorways. I guess it will come down to how much weight the 2 of you think you can handle. For me, I couldn't justify delivery costs.

I moved mine with a dolly by myself, it came in at about 500 lbs. the only hard part was a stupid design in my house down one step turn a corner and down another step. But I was able to do it on my own, so with two people and a dolly it shouldn't be too difficult.

2 if us moved a 48 or 52 gun liberty , it was heavy , but if you have a dolly and ramps easy as pie . It weighed right at 1100 Lbs empty . If I had a flight of stairs to go up I might pay the $200 .

When I bought my safe I got it from a local lock smithing company. They charged $100 and they would put it anywhere in your house that you wanted it. For me just getting the safe up my driveway was worth the money. My driveway is very steep and it had to me moved up five steps and across my hardwood floors. For me it was worth it to move my 1100lb safe.

You can lay blankets on the floor, then just push the safe across the blankets. Not that you would want too but you can push the safe across blankets by yourself. I put both of my safes in the house with blankets. I have them jammed in small closets.

I have a small 4'x8' trailer for hauling motorcycles and riding mowers that I used to haul the safe to the house. Once we got as close as we could with the truck we just used the small trailer like a wheelbarrow to get the safes to the door. We did the same thing to get a safe in a friends house. His house is on a hill. It felt like we had climbed mount everest time we got the safe to the door.

When they say "steps" they mean stair steps. Liberty 18 - you can move it. If you do have steps, rent a refrigerator type dolly. Not sure about your physical size or condition, but get yourself at least one bud, two for a good backup, and toss some burgers on the grill afterwards. You ought to be fine.
