I helped my sister move about over 6 months ago. She was moving to a Flat about 5 minutes away from where she already stayed. When she moved into the first Flat, on the second floor, I moved the TV up myself. It's an old school TV, not flat screen, but is still really wide. It was state of the art top of the range ultra wide TV when my dad bought it, before flat screens became popular. I don't know what size, I don't really know about TV's. I guestimated it weighed an awkward 80KG (I weigh just under that, btw). It "felt" more like double that but, it couldn't of been! It has handles on the sides so, you could do what could be described as a snatch grip deadlift walk with it, then snatch grip deadlift it up the stairs. I done this whilst waiting on a friend come and help. By the time he got there, I was finished.
Then she moved again but, this time hired a removal company. One guy turns up with a big Van. I help him with the TV. First, he didn't want to lift it like I knew he should of. "there's a trick to carrying TV's". So we lift it up, then lay it on it's front, and he almost drops his end, then starts swearing saying most washing machines are lighter than it. I suggest just using the handles (why else would they be there??). Nope. He had his "trick" which was clearly working really well. The TV now felt like 300KG each side. Thanks, Mr Removal man (as I think about starting a removal business).
We had to keep taking breaks. At one point, I got fed up, when we stopped mid way down a flight of stairs, I bent my knees and sat the TV on my knees and stabilised it with one hand whilst checking my phone with the other. Then he starts shouting, "you're going to ruin your back like that!!!". My back was completely upright!! He looked like quasimodo lifting a jumbo jet! I just said, "rather my back, than the TV!".
Then the kicker comes, "i guess it's ok, it's not like you do this everyday like I do". This made my sister burst into laughter. I just said, "yeh, right enough, that's probably it"...... Thinking "man, I wish I lifted heavy things every day, so I could look and move like this guy!"
