Yep, I believe you!
Here's the one we had:
It was my wife's too, when we finally got here with the moving trucks, we unloaded one with the exception of this cherry dresser that was bigger than the piano. I had no idea how we were going to get it up the stairs, then about that time I noticed an appliance delivery across the street at one of the neighbors, the kids were using what looked like a tow strap, two of them on each side of the appliance, the strap over one shoulder a piece and under whatever they were carrying. I went over there and asked how much they would charge me to move the dresser, $30 it was off the truck, up the stairs and in place in less than 5 minutes.
There were 3 of them and they had just moved here from Russia, they looked at me and asked if I needed anything else, I pointed at the other truck which was mostly my wood shop stuff. 24 foot U-haul, unloaded down to the basement in little over an hour. I handed them $100 a piece after they were done.
After they left, my wife looked at me and said, "see we could have brought the piano!"
