I had to pick mine up at the dealers, and he still charged me $290 for delivery!
I have a small trailer that I tow behind my Outback. The dealer put the stove, which was on a pallet and wieghs 500lbs., on the trailer with his electric lift. I tied it down, and back to the house we go.
At the house, I put my forks on front of my tractor's loader bucket, and lifted the stove off the trailer. I drove down to the lower level of the house, where the stove was to go. I opened the back door, and carefully drove the stove right thru the opened door. Yes, it is just a 36" wide exterior door, not a garage door, or anything easy like that. Once the stove was in the door, hanging about 6 inches off of the floor, I stuck a piano dolly under it, and lowered the forks until the stove was sitting on the dolly. From there I wheeled it around to where the stove was to be installed. I then tipped the stove, dolly and all, at a 45 degree angle, and the stove slid to the floor, where I could kick the dolly away. After unbolting the stove from the pallet, I then slid the stove off, and onto some furniture-moving skids or shoes. I could slide the stove right into position, and remove the skids from under each side by lifting each corner of the stove. WAA-LAA! Stove in place!
"wHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND?"
"i INSTALLED MY OWN COAL BURNER, ALL BY MYSELF!"
My stove heated me longggg before I attempted the first burn.
