There are 7 steps at the pick up location with no turns. There may be 16 steps with one turn at the drop off location. I'm not sure about the weight. I said 200 lbs. since most consoles are around 200-300 lbs. The piano is valued at $1650 and has large sentimental value. It must be picked up by 12/11/13, but we are flexible on the drop off date.
