Moving a safe is not an easy job and does have special requirements. Sometimes we can use a harness, while others may require a dolly or forklift. With these things in mind, it is essential to plan the location of your safe so that it is accessible by movers. There needs to be enough space from the entrance of the building, through hallways and doors, to move the safe without causing damage. Stairs and floors must be able to support a heavy, concentrated load. Bear in mind that fire departments suggest a first floor location for any heavy safes. If you are unsure about the suitability of your chosen safe location, it’s best to connect with an engineer or architect who may be able to advise you.
In addition to access, you should also consider what ground the safe will need to be moved across from its current location to its new location. Soft or sensitive surfaces such as lawns, gravel parking lots, hardwood, or marble floors can crack and present their own set of moving challenges. Apple Movers has the experience and expertise to protect these sensitive areas without causing damage.
Our safe movers prefer to meet with a potential customer to provide an accurate safe moving estimate. It helps us to identify the type of safe, how it is installed, where it is located and know where it is to be located. This on-site service is strongly recommended to help both the customer and our safe moving experts.
As the safe owner, we need you to remove any valuables prior to our moving the safe. This is done for reasons such as reducing weight in gun safes or minimizing our liability for protecting your valuables. We invite you to contact us to learn more about our professional safe moving services.
