    Well, I finally purchased a K2 Harp dolly and I am moving my pedal harp for the first time next weekend. I do have 4 steps to manuver as well as the door ledge to get on the steps.

    Hi Kay:

    I have a couple of tips. This may be old news to you, but …..

    1.

    When you’re moving the harp on the cart and come to stairs, keeping the wheel axle parallel to the edge of the stair will help to keep the weight of the harp from shifting. Same principle applies to slopes and ramps.

    Also, watch out for people helping lift the base of the harp, while it’s on the cart, and pulling the harp off the cart by accident. This happens especially when you are trying to roll the harp/cart up the stairs, over ledges, or up onto curbs.

    Oh, I just remembered; my DH wrote this:

    You’ll be fine. Reward yourself with chocolate afterwards.

    Can you put a heavy box on the trolley for a dry run or three?

    I was about to panic and ask “what are you talking about – putting the column behind the driver’s seat?” – then I remembered – I’m in the UK and you are in the US!

    Oooops to me.

    One thing I use with my harp when in the car is a foam wedge/triangle – this stops weight being pressed down
