Gun Safe Moving Estimate
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.
“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”

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.
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).

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.
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.
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.
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.
