I'm looking at getting an AO Smith HPTU-80N 80 gallon hybrid water heater delivered to my house. The shipping weight on this thing is 307lbs. How should I move this thing down the stairs to the basement? Am I going to be able to move this around strapped to a hand truck? I don't want to do something bad to the tank and cause it to fail prematurely.

With assistance of one or two others capable of maneuvering such a load...
