Maybe the packaging weighs a lot and when it is unboxed you can find a way to move it. Perhaps some of your coworkers could help... maybe give them some Rancho Gordo beans. Hope you can make this work out.

 

Worst case I leave the Vesta outdoors.  I have a long extension cord from the days I had a Diesel Jeep with a headbolt heater.  Almost as amusing as the time back when I was in business and our office manager ordered 2000 2meter USB cables shipped via UPS.  She never thought about the weight.  Though I'm not sure I would have either.  USB cables don't weigh much do they?

Specification not given.  The power is listed as 210 Watts which would be 0.281615 horsepower.  Wish I had a horse to help get it upstairs.  If I ever get it unpacked and operational I will measure the power.

 

Not necessarily. The rated wattage is typically the max power consumption, which would be if the compressor and all other fans etc are running simultaneously. So I imagine the compressor is quite a bit less than 1/4 hp to account for the fans... It is a BLAST freezer, right?

Because of the virus we have been asked not to contact management except in an emergency.  And schlepping upstairs is not something they would do (for insurance reasons) even in normal times.

How long would it take amazon to bring you a hand truck? or does someone in the building own one and would drop it outside your door?

 

Four days, minimum.  I realize you are undoubtedly an expert on these things.  But does a hand truck help with stairs?  Once the freezer is upstairs I'm pretty sure I can manipulate it into position.  Could you send your blimp?

UPS drivers are not allowed.  But as you suggest, hiring a contractor is a possibility.  Not something I had budgeted for.  However, on the brighter side, my stimulus check is coming.
