I have a ceramic kiln sitting in the bed of a pickup, It weighs probably 300 lbs. I need to get it out of the pickup and down on the ground. If I drop it, It will break the firebricks. I have no help. I was thinking about building a ramp, but not sure I could keep it from falling off the side of it. If I damage it, my wife will kill me. We all have had to improvise, any ideas?

I helped a friend move a concrete water feature fountain into his yard. Took 2x6, cross braced them and slide it off into its final resting place.

Do you have a cart or something you could unload it onto so you could move it, or a utility trailer?

I might just try to back my tilting lawn trailer, up to it, slide it on, move the trailer out and slide it back off.

Get 4 neighbors. We do that all the time. Ironically, one guy was also unloading a kiln. I helped pour a concrete slab, then returned to hook up the gas line.

Does this kiln have rings that come apart to make it shorter? Could take it apart in pieces
