Carry your boxes thru the front door. Lots of houses have 60A service. If the appliances are all gas and there are a limited number of people it works ok. I have a couple of friends that have 60 service. One we upgraded as it was way overloaded with electric everything, cant believe it wasnt blowing fuses all the time and another that has all gas appliances, and still has 60. He runs one large tool at a time in garage and gets along fine. No real reason to upgrade. If you are power hungry, hair dryers constant, several tvs on and every light while a couple puters are running with electric heaters going then you need an upgrade. Even in that case its usually a matter of individual circuits being overloaded more than it is entrance coming in.
