Hi,
I need help moving a washing machine downstairs - 1st floor to ground level. 1 set of stairs.
Any suggestions? I'd like it to still be in 1 piece at the bottom!
Thanks.

On average, a washing machine weighs between 60/80 kg: two fit people can easily lift it and take it down the stairs to its new location.

Yes, I'm expecting it to be possible. Any suggestions as to who I can call to help. Small job.

Thanks.

With a sack trolly, it can be one by one person. I have one but not accessible until Thursday.

Hi. Many thanks. Asked around and just paid a neighbour (& son) to do this for me.

Yes, I'd done all of that & researched it, etc. I'm recovering from an injury so was unable to be to do much other than pay someone to do it for me. Some of the people I called wanted 2 hr minimum to do (less than) a 10 minute job. Others said they'd help but didn't.

Thanks everyone. Really appreciate your replies.
