Gun Safe Moving

Let's face it: gun safes are just heavy. And their weight is the greatest obstacle to their portability, which is the way it is supposed to be. But what if you would like to place your gun safe in a different room, or move it from one floor to another? Because a gun safe is so heavy, a task like this will be impossible to complete by yourself. You will need the help of a few of your closest friends to help you, and the bigger they are, the easier this will be.

Tips & Warnings

Moving the safe from one level to another, either up or down stairs, involves a considerable amount of effort. At least three people should be pulling the safe up stairs while at least three more people should be under the safe pushing. Conversely, if the safe is going down stairs, three people should be on top of the safe easing it down the steps while at least three more should be under the safe doing the same thing. This can be dangerous, so use extreme caution and come up with a plan before beginning as every situation will be different.

1.

Empty the safe of its contents. Depending on how full it is, doing this could decrease the overall weight of the safe by a few hundred pounds making it easier to move.




2.

With the help of a couple of your friends, lift one side of the safe and slip the appliance dolly under the edge of the safe. Wrap the load strap around the safe and cinch it down so the safe is securely fastened to the appliance dolly.




3.

Tip the safe back onto the appliance dolly wheels. Most of the weight will be sitting on the wheels, but at least three people will be needed to hold the top of the safe up while in transit.

If the safe is being moved into another location on the same floor, begin wheeling the safe in the direction of the new location. When it is in place, slowly tip the safe back up so it sits flat on the floor. At least two people should be in position in front of the safe to help ease it back down while at least one person places his or her foot behind the dolly wheels to keep it from rolling backwards.




4.

When the dolly is upright again, remove the strap from around the safe and pull the dolly out from under the safe. Put the dolly aside. Replace the contents of the safe.
