Safe movers have skills above and beyond normal movers of household goods or offices. We are one of the most experienced safe moving companies in Atlanta. For many years we have moved both business safes and home safes. Our experience includes larger deposit safes, home safes, gun safes and many types of fire safes. We can usually remove safes that are bolted to the floor. Certain types of floor safes or wall safes are permanently installed and cannot be moved. There are many types of safes and each may need a unique method to move your particular type of safe.
There are a few ways to move a heavy safe. Many safes can be moved with a harness while others require a special safe moving dolly. In some case a fork lift may be required. Some condo moves may require our safe movers to coordinate the move-in with the property managers to use the freight elevator.
When you are planning the new location for your safe you should make certain the area is accessible. There should be ample width of hallways and doorways. Stairs and floors must be able to support a heavy concentrated load. It is worth mentioning that fire departments prefer a first floor location for any heavy safes. Many gun safes will need to be unbolted from floors or walls. In most cases our safe movers can unbolt your safe.
Other considerations that can complicate or simplify a move have to do with the area on which the safe is moved. Soft lawns, gravel parking lots, or sensitive hardwood floors or marble floors which can crack have their own challenges for safe movers. As experienced safe movers we know how to remove, transport and deliver your safe – without damaging your property.
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 mover services.
