This is not a typical bookshelf by any means. This is approximately 86" tall, 20" deep and 54" wide and weighs roughly 400 lbs. Needless to say, this was not just a challenge of weight as much as just an awkward object to try to maneuver, especially from one second floor apartment to another. Not only was the bookshelf moved on schedule, but was done without causing any damage to the shelf itself (this was a concern of mine, as it is an original work and an antique) or to any hallways or fixtures. The move was only about 10 miles, but was very well executed.
