A typical gun safe can weigh anywhere between 300 lbs. and 2,000 lbs. which makes moving items, like a heavy gun safe, difficult and dangerous, especially if you don’t have the proper training or lack the appropriate equipment.
Unfortunately, not every moving company can efficiently handle a gun safe relocation. Luckily for you, Two Man Movers & Storage wants to help!

How Two Man Movers Protects You, Your Property & Your Gun Safe
If you don’t have experience moving items that weigh more than 300 lbs., you’re likely to encounter more issues than just some sore muscles. Fortunately, Two Man Movers has been moving thousands of heavy, bulky and awkward items since 1999. That means that we have the experience and stamina to wrap, pad, haul and transport your heavier items with ease, ensuring you, your property and your belongings remain safe and secure.
Let our experienced moving crew handle your gun safe by:
- Hauling it into, or out of, your home safely
- Using proper moving equipment to move the gun safe including dollies, ratchet straps and tie-downs to secure the safe during transport
- Protecting your home using site protection materials like floor runners to avoid tracking in outside debris or dirt
- Using protective materials to blanket wrap and shrink wrap the safe for its own protection
- Navigating tricky obstacles such as multiple stairs, narrow hallways and more
Preparing Your Gun Safe for Moving Day
If you take the time to prepare your gun safe before our movers arrive, it can make it that much easier for us to secure your safe and move it quickly. That’s why we’ve compiled a few tips to help you help us move your safe smoothly:
- Remove the valuables in your safe. Including the guns themselves and any ammunition.
- Because we are legally required not to move your guns (even if they’re family heirlooms), we recommend that they be kept alongside you or within your home, including ammo.
- If your gun safe is affixed to a wall, floor or another surface, please allow us easy access to the bolts.
- Clear a path and ensure all entryways to and from the safe’s origin and destination are free and clear of debris.
- If there are stairs to navigate, we need to know how many flights our movers will be traversing.
- As always, during your initial quote consultation, let us know how much the safe weighs.
Though these tips are merely suggestive, it can go a long way to help Two Man Movers create a stress-free gun safe moving experience.
