Gun Safe Movers

Moving specialty items, like a heavy gun safe, can be difficult and dangerous if you don’t have the proper training or you lack the appropriate equipment. Not every moving company can efficiently handle a gun safe relocation.

Luckily for you, at HuberWilmot Moving & Storage we train our staff to use special handling skills and equip them with the right tools to safely haul and load difficult-to-move objects, like gun safes. Our crew understands the ins and outs of moving a heavy item efficiently, quickly and without injury or damage done to you or your property.

Don’t break the bank or your back and call on the experienced, qualified and affordable heavy safe movers at HuberWilmot Moving & Storage.

“Equipment and Experience when handling specialty items like gun safes is key. Service providers need to have readily available heavy-duty dollies, stevedores, lift-gated trucks, safe-jacks.”
Eric Wilmot - Owner, HuberWilmot Moving & Storage

How We Protect You, Your Property & Your Gun Safe During a Move

You keep your most valued possessions locked away in your safe, so why allow anyone but a professional to handle the safe itself? A gun safe is probably not a purchase you make very often, and if you’re moving a safe for the first time, you may not know how to get one in and out of your home without any damage.

Our experience moving team at HuberWilmot Moving & Storage know how to:

  • Get your safe into, or out of, your home without injury or damage
  • Utilize the appropriate equipment such as dollies, ratchet straps and tie downs to secure the safe during transport
  • Use site protection materials to protect your home while we move the heavy item
  • Protective materials to blanket wrap and shrink wrap the safe for its own protection
  • Maneuver around tricky obstacles

Preparing Your Gun Safe for Moving Day

Getting your safe prepared for a move will help in reducing the man-hours it takes for us to unload, secure and haul your heavy item(s). That’s why we’ve compiled a few tips to help you help us move your safe smoothly:

  • Remove the valuables in your safe. This includes the guns themselves and any ammunition. Pack them in a separate box/container yourselves, or inform your mover, before moving day, of additional high-value items that need attention.
  • We are not legally able to move your rifles, pistols or other firearms, even if they’re family heirlooms. Moving the valuables yourself will ensure they will not be damaged.
  • Is your gun safe bolted to the floor or wall? Please allow us easy access to the bolts.
  • Please clear a path and ensure there is plenty of working space for our movers.
  • Please secure a backup location if you’re moving your safe from room to room.
  • If we have not completed a walkthrough, please measure any entryways to determine if more space is needed to move the safe.
  • If there are stairs to navigate, we need to know how many flights our movers will be traversing.
  • As always, during your initial quote consultation, let us know how much the safe weighs.

Following these tips not only ensures your gun safe is moved safely, securely and efficiently, but that your overall move is completed as quickly as possible.

Did you know...?

How will I know when my shipment is going to be delivered?

Your driver will contact you 24 hours before delivery. The moving company will assign a customer service representative as your primary contact and will be able to track your shipment and provide you with an update on the date that your goods will arrive.

Be certain to provide the driver with all your contact information—the phone number at the new home is only good if there is a person there to take the call. If you can be reached at work, a hotel, a temporary residence, or by email, please let the driver know. If you will be impossible to reach, it is encouraged to make arrangements with a friend or family member to serve as the liaison between you and the driver and provide the driver with that contact information.
