Moving a Stove Without Scratching the Floor

Any advice would be welcome. Iím putting in a new 6 burner gas range that weighs about 450# in my kitchen. The kitchen has hardwood floors. Currently the range is directly in front of where it needs to go, I just need to slide it back without scratching the hell out of the floor.

Itís currently sitting on a piece of cardboard and I was thinking about trying to slide the whole piece back but Iím not sure if that would protect the floor and then Iíve got to get the cardboard out from under the rear legs of the range once itís in. Iíve also got a hand truck but I donít see how I could use that under it. I donít want to put that much pressure under the front edge and lean the front door of the oven against the hand truck. Anyone have some master wisdom?

The cardboard will protect the floor "IF" the floor is clean under it. If you are worried here is what I would do. Replace the cardboard with 4 small carpet squares or scraps under the feet of the stove, upside down of course. The back two you will attach a string to. Now slide the stove in and when it is all but in tilt it forward just enough to pull the strings and remove the back two squares of carpet. Then tilt it back and remove the front two. Now slide it back the last inch and done.

Everything he said, except pulling the back carpet pieces, I'd leave 'em. Just pull the fronts. Then no string and you'll only need to put the two front ones back under it should you ever need to slide it back out for anything.

Edit: And if the upside down carpet still won't slide on the clean floor, try spreading some talc lightly where they need to slide.

Democrats: abolish ICE... free health care for illegals... make it easy for illegals who cross to stay... give illegals the right to vote... adamantly oppose building a secure border... create "sanctuary cities"... grant illegals in the country amnesty... welfare for illegals... tip off illegals about ICE raids.
And we're supposed to believe that Democrats aren't for open borders simply because they say so?

If you don't have carpet bits, you can also use towels, either under the cardboard, or just under the feet of the stove.
