If you have heavy items to move, such as furniture or large boxes, then you need to have someone with experience move these items. If you do not have experience using site protection while moving a gun safe, then you need to practice on your own. Begin by setting up a secure spot in which to transport the safe and using site protection to keep it safe from falling or rolling. If the safe has windows, then you will want to use these too, but remember to use them carefully so no one gets hurt. Once the safe is safely on the truck, then you are ready to begin the actual move.

One of the best gun safe moving tips involves using wheels. Moving a gun safe on flat surface can be very dangerous because of the unevenness of the ground. This can easily cause the safe to tip over. Using wheels allows you to roll the safe directly to the truck, and this prevents tipping over. It also allows you to rest the safe on the truck floor if you need to. This ensures that no one steps on the gun safe when you are moving it around.

Once you have the gun safe in the truck, begin the actual move by uninstalling any packing materials so that they do not get caught up in the moving company equipment. Unpack everything inside the truck: in particular, disassemble the baseboards. Then, remove any foam padding that may be in place, as this can cause damage to the foam. You will also need to remove all cushions from inside the truck to prevent scratches and dents from occurring when you drive the truck around.

Once the entire truck is empty, unload it onto the bed of the truck. If the wheels do not have removable pads, then you will need to take off the wheels and pad them before loading the gun safe onto the bed. Place the gun safe between the rear wheels, using a dolly to keep it firmly in place. Using long, flat sticks to support the gun safe while it is in place will prevent it from slipping around. Put small packets of tape on the sides of the bottom so that it does not touch the moving equipment.

Once the safe is securely in place, you will need to move it onto the dollies. The safest way to transport a safe this way is using dollies. If you must move it by hand, use plywood or cardboard on the ground under the safe, and spread out large sheets of newspaper across the area that you plan to move it. Remove the padlocks on the doors of the safe while you are removing the padlocks, and place them in a secure spot far away from your work area. You will probably want to set up a propane or natural gas powered heater nearby in case you need to make a quick power transfer while your gun move.

    … More the house. They made a quick plan and began work.
    The owner, Abraham, stopped by to ensure the move was on track. He was a delight and very professional.
    Later in the day the GM stopped in and had his men move a few items that we were leaving with the house that were too bulky for me to get my hands around and they willingly and quickly went into action.
    Moving is always stressful. It was nice having professionals that not only performed the job with speed and professionalism but the little extra help went a long way.
