Granite on a moveable Island?

February 4, 2018

I am really needing some information and thoughts on a kitchen dilemma,

I am at the point where I am selecting granite for my kitchen redo. I had in the plans a mobile island which is approximately 3 feet by 5 feet, cabinet height, very sturdy and substantial. It is essentially base kitchen cabinets made into an island. When the granite company saw that the island was moveable, they refused to do the install on the island saying it is too much of a liability because of the weight of the granite. I believe tipping over is their concern, although maybe there is something I am not thinking of. They said the weight of the granite is approximately 300 pounds.

Does anyone have experience with granite on a moveable island?

This island will not being moved often, so I am willing to accept the hefty weight when I move it. The flooring is also able to handle the weight.

Thank you everyone for their helpful thoughts.
