Hand Dolly

I once helped a friend with a new gun safe. This safe was extremely heavy. It was so heavy that it was mounted to a pallet and loaded on a trailer hitched to a heavy truck. When the safe was placed on the trailer, even the truck sagged down.

When we arrived at his house, several strong friends were waiting there to help us unload it. We struggled to wiggle the load from the trailer without a mechanical aid. Then we opened the safe and unbolted it from the pallet. We then began the arduous task of wiggling it from the garage to the room to place it in. Then, one of the guys says, “Hey, I’ll go get a hand dolly.” When he returned, we quickly scooped up the safe with the hand dolly, lifted it up on the dolly about a foot through the door into the room, and set it in place.
