3 Reasons Why You Should Hire A Professional Safe Mover

Packing up your kitchenware and clothes before your move is pretty straightforward. However, moving a safe is not so easy and comes with unique challenges and potential complications. Safes and vaults are big, heavy, and awkward to move and if done incorrectly can cause severe damage to your home, the safe itself, and the contents within. You also risk injury to those moving it. Safe movers have the experience and equipment to properly handle moving your safe so you do not have to leave it behind or risk injury.

Leave Your Safe Move To The Professionals

High-security metal safes can be as big and tall as a refrigerator, only much heavier. They are designed to withstand fire, burglaries, and any environmental changes. They are extremely difficult to move and can be very dangerous if the right safety precautions are not taken. Here are three reasons why you should consider hiring professional movers with years of experience in moving large safes between homes or offices:

Protect The Valuables Inside Your Safe

Many safes are equipped to protect your belongings only when standing upright. Jostling the safe and moving it around incorrectly can shift the shelves and contents inside causing them to break. Special techniques and strategies are required to pick up and transport safes. Professional movers are trained in to ensure no valuable contents are damaged during the move.

It Is Too Big And Heavy To Move On Your Own

Moving a heavy safe requires teamwork, training, and specialized equipment that you simply may not have. Your pickup truck may not be able to handle the weight of transporting a safe and unless you have enough friends willing to help you move a 1000 pound gun safe, you will not be able to safely transport it on your own. If the move involves stairs, tight corners, or a long walk to the truck, special equipment is necessary to make it happen. Professional safe movers are equipped with heavy-duty dolly’s, straps, and professional knowledge to properly work together as a team to ensure a secure, efficient move that will not cause injury or damage to your home or the safe itself.

Your Safe May Be Connected To Your Homes Infrastructure

Many safes are bolted to the walls or floors of your home to ensure that they are stabilized and will not fall over. The safe needs to be carefully removed from wall studs to make sure no damage occurs to your home’s structure Some safes are directly wired into your home's electrical system. If the safe is disconnected incorrectly, you risk damaging the electrical wiring inside the safe which allows it to open and close. Also, as you are pulling the safe away from the wall, the safe may not smoothly roll out and may topple over causing serious injury to you or damage to your home.
