    Is there an easy way to move my 55inch mits to the second floor of my house? The stairway is straight up with no landing. Can I tilt the RPTV? Is there any equipment that can be rented that you can recommend to be used is moving this tv upstaits?

    You could rent a stair climbing hand truck. I have seen them used and theorhetically a single person could move a 700 lb item up the stairs.

    Dodie,

    Please tell me you aren't trying to do this yourself! The best "equipment" you can rent is a couple of strong backs.

    Yes, you can tilt the set (I assume you mean that one end will be higher than the other), but don't up-end it!

    Easy? No. But it can be done if there's enough width on the stairway.
