Gun Safe Movers

Relocating for the First Time? Here's What You Need to Know

Before moving day, as a gun-safe owner, you'll coordinate with a professional moving company, facilitated by a Moving Coordinator, who will discuss your specific needs, plan the safest and most efficient route for the move, and prepare all necessary documentation, including an Order of Service detailing all of the services you have requested. On the day of the move, the team of movers will arrive at your location with specialized equipment such as dollies, moving blankets, and rigging equipment. Your gun-safe will be wrapped and protected to prevent any damage during transit, then skillfully maneuvered out of your residence, considering every corner, stair, and narrow passageway. For an in-house move, they will simply move it to the correct room. For local or long-distance moves, the safe will be carefully loaded onto the moving truck. You and the driver will then review and finalize the Bill of Lading and the agreed-upon charges and provide you a copy for your records. The moving company will transport and unload your gun-safe into your new home, and you will finish the move by taking a walkthrough of all the items and confirming with the driver.

It is vital to hire movers who are specifically trained and experienced in handling gun-safes.

Discipled Movers uses all the necessary equipment and more. Our team is fully equipped with professional, heavy-duty equipment to ensure a safe and efficient move. We are prepared for any moving challenges that may arise, ensuring a smooth and safe moving process for your gun-safe.


How Long Will It Take to Move the Gun-Safe?

The time it takes to move a gun-safe varies depending on whether the move is local or long-distance. In-home and local moves can be done within the day, while long-distance moves may take a few days.
