Up to the 2nd floor bathroom?

We had a new vanity with marble top loaded onto our truck Wednesday, the two guys loading it could barely get it on the truck because of the weight.

Now, how do we get it off the truck and up to our 2nd floor bathroom? We don't really have anyone that could help except for maybe one person.

It's all one piece? Usually the top comes off

If it won't come apart you may have to hire some people to move it up the stairs for you. There are slider things you can put on the bottom of heavy things to move them across floors, but that won't help with getting it off the truck and up the stairs.

yes, it's one piece. I'll see if I can get underneath to see if the top is bracketed on. They did get it off the truck but hauling it up a flight of stairs is another story...

Up one...person in back needs to be tall enough and strong enough to keep it tilted in right direction.

I've seen heavy old fridges go up stairs on dollie ( y?) one step at a time.

you can use a dolly, and also they have a dolly you could rent probably from an appliance store, that has a motorized track on it for use on stairs.

Well, my hubby wouldn't ask more than one person to help him move this tank to its new 2nd floor location and he dented up the the front of the vanity along the bottom right where you see it when you walk into the room. I've got four dents about the size of a pea in my brand new vanity. It is a dark wood finish. Any idea how to repair these?

Can you steam the dents out?

Can you wood fill and then stain and seal?

Or, you can consider it a memory of the time hubby wouldn 't (once again if anything like my hubby) ask for help when he needed it!

If it is along a kick plate- is it replaceable - maybe you can get a new bottom.

For the sake of safety and not getting a damaged back hire help if necessary even if its a neighbor. Some back damage isn't worth it and stay with you the rest of your life.
