I rented a stair climbing dolly to move a 500lb safe into my basement. Money well spent.

What is the code as far as stair loading in a house ?     Like basement stairs,  seems like a notched out 2x12 would not support a lot of weight.    Roly

How many times have you followed a group of people up a flight of stairs?  Do the math on the weights and you might be surprised.

Distributed load vs concentrated live load unless all the people on one step.   I know the people that moved a friends gun safe down his stairs came out to see if the steps would handle it before they took the job.    Roly

while I understand what you are saying it doesn't really apply if the safe is laid down and slid up the stairs or had a guy on either end

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I rented a vending machine dolly. It looks like a regular appliance dolly but is larger and and can be leaned back on a retractable stand. The folks at Sam's loaded the safe onto my cargo trailer. Three really good friends helped me move it into my house and then back out when we figured out it would fit through the closet door. I either mis-read the safe dimensions or they provided the wrong dimensions. Either way, the guys were great about it and we ended up putting it in my garage (where, my wife informs me, will stay forever).
