The Mountain Moving gentlemen who moved us couldn’t have been more courteous and skilled. Prompt, careful of all our belongings- including our piano-, and done in less time than the estimate- what’s not to love? Highly recommend!

My nonprofit organization recently worked with Doug's moving crew to coordinate the move-out of our building and into storage while we right size to a better office. Doug was helpful in answering questions, following up on needed information, and... responding to our concerns quickly and professionally. His team was flawless and fast on our moving day, finishing up the work early and under budget,. They also coordinated the efforts for the discarded items to the dump, eliminating extra hassles and time for our staff. We have also worked with Shannon in the business office to take of billing, and those interactions have been helpful, courteous and professionally managed as well. We are so grateful for the excellent work ethic and follow through from everyone at Mountain Moving & Storage, and we look forward to working with them again.read more

Excellent move from beginning to end. I’ve worked professionally with Mountain for over 20 years and was always impressed with their low claims ratio. This was the first time I got to experience it personally. The crew was outstanding and the packing was... superb. We didn’t have a single damaged item in our move. We are upper happy and impressed. If you want or need a flawless move, please do not hesitate to contact Mountain to have the job done right.read more

Great experience. Professional, did not cut corners. Had another local company cancel on me the day of my planned move and had already received a quote from Mountain Movers prior to the other company’s cancellation. Called them and asked if they could... move me ASAP and they were there the next morning. No nonsense, rapid move, never had to redirect their movers back on task. Highest recommend!read more

They were a joy to work with and took great care of our belongings. Thank you!read more

The workers moved a restored juke box filled with CD’s that couldn’t be jostled too much, or I would have spent hours re-organizing them. It was very heavy and awkward, yet two of them handled it no problem. It was moved between two residences smoothly.... Initially we were not sure if it would take three people to move it, so a third mover was there, but went unneeded. The good news was that they were honest and did not charge me for the third person. I would have paid, since he was on the premises, and they refused to charge me. THAT is why I will hire them again in the future should I need to. Honest, efficient, personable work...the way it should be.Joeread more

Though it was a lot of hard work they put in and maneuvering around they had to do, they... maintained great attitudes and were friendly. They work very well together. We also want to thank Doug for his timely responses to us through e-mail. We will definitely recommend Mountain Moving and Storage to others who may need a building moved or moving in general.

The gentleman I talked to on the phone to arrange a move didn't seem to have a good handle on what was going on. Had to call 4 times to check on my delivery because he wasn't sure where his crew was or when they had an opening. The moving crew was... phenomenal. They unloaded my entire 26' truck (due to an injury I had) in only an hour. No broken items and they were more than willing to be gentle with the more delicate items and even moved things into the rooms I asked for to ease the hassle of doing it myself. Great job guys I'm impressed.read more

Great experiences with Mtn Moving. I have used them twice - once when they were assigned to my military move from WA to HI, and a second time when I chose them for a move from one point in Tacoma to another.I can't comment on pricing for the first move... (paid for by military), but the second move's pricing was very fair. James (estimator) arrived as scheduled, provided a written estimate and tentatively scheduled a moving day. A 'what-to-expect on moving day' PDF was provided. He offered to provide boxes and packing materials, if needed.Movers (Todd, Tua, Fah) arrived on time on moving day. Walked thru, discussed basic plan and they got to work. Watched the guys move all items and they used standard equipment (carpeted dollies, pads, tie downs, etc). Everything was handled carefully and nothing was thrown or dropped. Load up time was less than estimated and very smooth. Unloading at the new house took even less time.All in all, an excellent experience. Simply put, the service provided was the service promised. I think prepping for moving day is 80-90% of what makes things go smoothly. We had everything boxed up, labeled, and staged by the doors of each room on moving day. Clothes taken out of closets and dressers and boxed up. Read thru the "what-to-expect" PDF and transported prohibited items ourselves before moving day (open chemical containers, alcohol, high value items). Everything you leave for the movers on moving day to deal with adds TIME. That, in turn, will increase your final cost, or torpedoes the whole move because of some showstopper.read more

My wife and I scheduled these guys to help us with our local move. We have used several local companies in the past and have never been happy with the result, hence why we kept trying someone new. These guys are my goto recommendation if you need... assistance moving. I called and reserved a team of 4 and two trucks about a week before our move. They let me know the price estimate and gave us the estimate time they would be there. They called to confirm the day prior and called the morning of to let us know they were on their way. The guys that showed up (Mark, Gabriel, Robert, Jesse) were polite and professional and knew what they were doing. We showed them what needed to go and they quickly got to work. They treated our stuff just like it was there own. They worked quickly and efficiently. Moving is always stressful, these guys made at least this part of it easy. Instead of shopping around for who may be the cheapest, save your self the hassle and call these guys to take care of your stuff.read more

Gun Safe Movers – 800 lb Limit

Moving for the First Time?

When you’re ready to relocate your firearm safe, you’ll request a free gun safe moving estimate. The movers will provide a specialist to manage your relocation, who will help strategize the move, decide the best course of action, and handle all needed paperwork. Then, your moving specialist will provide an Order of Service form showing the chosen services and their costs. On your moving day, a trained crew will come with the essential equipment. They’ll wrap your firearm storage securely, skillfully move it through tight areas and staircases, and set it up in the intended room if it’s a same-home move. If you’re shifting elsewhere, they’ll ensure they securely place the gun safe on their air-cushioned vehicle. Next, you and the team leader will review the Bill of Lading, an essential document that records every item and its state before and after the move to ensure proper care of your belongings. After everything’s in place and you’ve checked your firearm safe for any issues, you’ll sign off on the Bill of Lading with the team leader.

Gun Safe Movers FAQ

Tacoma Movers

“When looking to moving a gun safe first find out the approximate weight of the safe and make sure to let the movers know if there are any access issues such as stairs or tight turns. A good mover should be asking these questions during the survey process”

Doug Kentfield - Lead Sales, Mountain Moving & Storage.

  • Spacious Storage Facility

    We can store your safe in our expansive 51,000 sqft facility. This ensures superior security and climate management for the safety of your firearm safe.

How Do Moving Companies Transport Gun Safes?

Gun safes can be challenging to move because of their weight, value, and the sensitive nature of the items they protect. Most moving companies often use specialized equipment, such as heavy-duty dollies, ramps, and protective materials, to facilitate the process. Furthermore, your moving company should require you to remove all firearms and other contents from the gun safe.

Serving the greater Tacoma area since 1996, Mountain Moving & Storage has experience and knowledge in handling gun-safe moves. We wrap every gun safe in moving blankets before securing them in plastic wrap. This not only shields the safe itself but also protects its surroundings.

Our use of soft landing spots and leverage straps underlines our commitment to ensuring its secure transport. When you trust Mountain Moving & Storage with your gun safe, you’ll receive a service rooted in expertise, caution, and experience.

Are Gun-Safe Moving Companies Licensed and Insured?

In the moving industry, companies must have the proper licensing and insurance to ensure the safety of your move. All moving companies need a state license to complete in-state or local moves. For long-distance moves, which are moves that cross state lines, movers must have a USDOT license.

General liability and worker’s comp insurance policies are essential for moving companies. These insurance policies protect the client’s interests while protecting the moving company and its crew.

Choosing Mountain Moving & Storage means entrusting valuables to a fully licensed and insured company. We comply with legal and industry standards by holding a Washington State license (WUTC CC57070) and a USDOT license (885643). Regarding insurance, our comprehensive coverage, including general liability and worker’s comp policies, offers our customers peace of mind. With us, you can be confident that your belongings and our operations are under a secure umbrella of protection.

How Much Does Moving a Gun-Safe Professionally Cost?

Relocating a gun safe is intricate, and its pricing is contingent on numerous factors. According to market research, the typical cost for such a move ranges between $100 and $1000. In the United States, our research shows that most gun safe moving services average around $525 for in-home moves. Numerous factors, including the number of firearm safes, weight, and dimensions, play into determining the price.

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we are committed to transparency and fairness in our pricing model. We understand every move is unique, so we offer customized estimates to match your needs.

What Measures do Moving Companies Take to Prevent Damage to the Gun Safe During the Move?

Preventing damage to gun safes is a top priority when completing a firearm safe move. The use of quality padding materials, specialized handling equipment, and detailed route planning are just a few of the standard precautions taken to ensure the security of firearm safes during transit.

Mountain Moving & Storage has a multi-pronged approach to ensure the absolute safety of your gun safe. We train our moving crew to anticipate challenges and employ solutions promptly. This way, they can eliminate any unnecessary jolts or vibrations of the safe to prevent scratching or scuffing during the move. By doing so, we ensure minimal contact with other objects to minimize any risk of damage during transit.

Mountain Moving & Storage

How Experienced is the Moving Crew in Handling Gun-Safes?

A well-trained crew is the backbone of a successful move in the industry. Training is especially important when the move involves specialty items like gun safes. Rigorous training programs and hands-on experience are important for movers handling gun-safe moves.

However, not all moving companies specialize in firearm-safe moves. Therefore, their crews are usually not as experienced with moving gun-safes. This is why we recommend only moving gun safes with moving companies who specialize in it.

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we highly emphasize continuous learning and practical experience. Our moving crew is well-versed in the best practices of gun-safe relocation and regularly undergoes training. This way, you can rest easy knowing your gun safe is in good hands.

What Types of Tools and Equipment Do Moving Companies Use to Move Gun-Safes?

Leading moving companies use a diverse array of specialized equipment tailored to the unique demands of relocating gun safes. This arsenal includes hand trucks, reinforced dollies, moving blankets, hoisting straps and lifting belts, stair-climbing tools, ground shields, sliders, and rigging instruments. Having the right tools is imperative for the safety and efficiency of the move.

When you choose Mountain Moving & Storage for your gun-safe relocation, you are trusting a trained professional moving team equipped with the latest in moving technology. Our use of state-of-the-art tools, superior wrapping materials, and decades of experience guarantees that every step of your move is executed with precision, safety, and efficiency.

What is the Typical Timeline for a Professional Gun-Safe Move?

Several factors can influence the time frame for a gun safe move. These include the distance of the move, the specific conditions of the pick-up and drop-off locations, and the size and weight of the safe. If the gun-safe move is in-home, it typically will not take longer than a few hours to a full day. Depending on your final destination, local moves can take anywhere from a day or two to about a week or so.

When moving your gun safe long distance, allow one day for loading, one day for unloading, and one day for every 500 miles traveled. While that should give you a good estimate of your timeline, the best way to figure out your personal moving timeline is to request a gun safe moving estimate from your moving company. We’ve found it best to get at least three estimates from three different companies, so you have options to decide what is best for you.

Mountain Moving & Storage, known for its efficiency and promptness, ensures every move is conducted within a reasonable timeframe. We will include your estimated moving timeline in your gun safe moving estimate so you will have all the information you need before signing on with us. By utilizing our vast experience and cutting-edge resources, we guarantee a swift and hassle-free relocation of your gun safe, no matter the challenge.
