Types of Safes to Move

Safes come in various shapes, sizes, and weights, leading to a complex scenario while moving them. Some are small and portable, while others are giant vault doors or heavy commercial safes.

When it comes to relocating a safe, it is important to choose the right moving services that are equipped with the specialized equipment and skills necessary to move different types of safes safely.

Fireproof safes are designed to protect the contents from fire and heat damage. These safes are typically made from heavy-duty steel and other materials that can withstand extreme temperatures.

Since fireproof safes are built to be more durable and resilient, they are usually heavier than other types of safes. It is not uncommon for a fireproof safe to weigh anywhere from 100 to 1000 pounds or more.

When moving a fireproof safe, it is important to take the necessary safety precautions. Due to their weight, fireproof safes can be difficult to move and can cause serious injury if not handled properly. It is recommended that only professionals, with proper equipment and training, attempt to move fireproof safes.

At Pro Move Storage our experienced movers will use a heavy-duty appliance dolly and other specialized equipment to transport these safes safely. Careful planning and execution will be required to ensure that the surrounding area is not damaged during the moving process.

Burglary safes, as their name suggests, are designed to protect the contents from theft or unauthorized access.

They are typically made from high-quality steel and other fortified materials that can withstand brute force.

Burglary safes are often more compact than fireproof safes, but can still weigh anywhere from a few hundred pounds up to a couple of thousand pounds depending on the size of the safe.

Moving a burglary safe can be even more challenging than moving a fireproof safe due to the added security features.

When moving both fireproof and burglary safes, it is important to take all necessary precautions to avoid damage to the contents and the surrounding area.

This may include using floor runners or protective materials to prevent scratches or dents which our experienced movers are able to provide.

For gun owners who are looking for basic protection for their firearms, entry-level gun safes are a popular option. These safes are designed to be more affordable than high-end safes, yet still provide a secure storage solution for guns and ammunition.

Entry-level gun safes tend to be much lighter than their high-end counterparts, with a weight range of approximately 200 to 600 pounds.

While this is significantly lighter than fireproof or burglary safes, they still require proper precautions to ensure safe moving.

When moving an entry-level gun safe, it is important to use proper equipment such as a heavy-duty appliance dolly, straps, and moving blankets. Wrapping the safe in protective padding can prevent scratches or dents during the moving process.

At Pro Move Storage our experienced movers know how to transport the gun safes.  By law, the gun safes must be empty of all firearms and ammunition before moving them.

Modern gun safes are designed to provide the highest level of security for your firearms and ammunition. These safes feature advanced locking mechanisms, reinforced steel construction, and other cutting-edge security features.

High-end gun safes can weigh up to 1,500 pounds or more, making them incredibly difficult to move without the special equipment and experience.
