Don't worry, we've got you covered. In this blog post, we'll walk you through everything you need to do to get your gun safe ready for moving day. So whether you're relocating across town or across the country, follow these steps and rest assured knowing that your guns are in good hands. Let's get started!
Decide where you want the gun safe to be located in your new home
Safe moving in Utah can be a tricky operation, but with the right preparation, it can be made much simpler. An important part of your workflow should include deciding where you would like to have your gun safe placed in your new home. Finding a spot that offers the requisite level of safety and access is not always easy, but taking the time to plan ahead before the move can save a lot of hassle down the line. Do some research and take into account any zoning laws or residential restrictions in order to ensure that whatever spot you choose meets all current requirements. This will help make sure your move into your new home goes off without a hitch.
Measure the doorways, stairwells, and elevators to make sure the gun safe will fit
Moving a gun safe is no small task, and you want to make sure it'll fit into the new places you’re taking it! Before you begin any lifting and shifting, measure the doorways, stairwells, elevators, and any other tight spots your gun safe will have to go through. By doing this first, you're decreasing the chances of a mid-move accident, as well as saving yourself precious time by having to bring the safe back if it just won't fit! You got this - get measuring!
Remove all firearms from the gun safe before moving it
Before moving, it's essential that all firearms are safely removed from the gun safe. If you're inexperienced with transporting guns and don't have the right equipment in place, the process can be quite dangerous. Unless you’re a professional, I’d suggest seeking help to move your firearms if required. That way, when handling them out of the gun safe, you will know that you are doing it safely and maintaining all necessary regulations. Another important point is to recheck every firearm in your gun safe before it gets moved so there’s no chance any loose firearms come up missing in transit to its new home!
Clean out the gun safe to remove any dirt or debris
Before you move your gun safe, it's important to take the time to clean it out and make sure that there are no dirt or debris left in the safe before you transfer it. This can be done with a vacuum or simply wiping down all surfaces with a microfiber cloth. Make sure not to miss any nooks and crannies where dirt can accumulate, as this could potentially cause rust or other damage over time. Cleaning your gun safe before moving is essential for both its protection and yours, so don’t forget this important step!
Lock the gun safe before moving it to prevent anyone from opening it during transport
Before you move your gun safe anywhere, make sure to take the time to lock it properly. This is an important step in making sure that no one can access the contents while it's in transit. Even if you're confident that the gun safe will be secure in whatever vehicle it's being moved in, a locked door adds an extra layer of security and prevents any unintentional or questionable access from people who may come across it during transport. So don't forget: take the time to lock your gun safe before you move it, for peace of mind and safety.
Now that you know how to prepare your gun safe for moving, it's time to get started. Before you move any large furniture or appliances, be sure to measure the doorways, stairwells, and elevators in your new home to make sure everything will fit. Once you've found the perfect spot for your gun safe, remove all firearms from it and clean out any dirt or debris. Finally, be sure to lock the gun safe before moving it to prevent anyone from opening it during transport. Request a quote from us today and we'll help you make your move as smooth as possible.
