  1. Assessing Your Moving Needs:

     Before embarking on the moving process, our team at Blue Ridge Safe will conduct a thorough assessment of your specific moving requirements. Often times we can do this with you in our store or even over the phone. Rarely will it be necessary for us to perform an on sight survey; however, it does happen. This evaluation allows us to determine the appropriate equipment, number of team members, and necessary precautions for a successful move.

  1. High-Quality Equipment:

     As a leading safe store, we take pride in offering the finest moving equipment designed specifically for safely handling heavy gun safes. Our arsenal of tools includes:

  • Heavy-duty stair climbing hand truck: Our sturdy and reliable dollies can effortlessly handle the weight of your gun safe, ensuring smooth transportation. No, it's not magic. We just make it look easy.
  • Slick sticks: We are not really sure where these little wonders came from, possibly from the safe fairy. All we know is that they are the best thing since sliced bread. Not only do they allow us to move a 1200-pound safe around your home with ease, but it's virtually impossible to damage your floor when our moving professional staff uses them.
  • Protective blankets and padding: We wrap your gun safe with high-quality blankets and padding to shield it from scratches and bumps, preserving its pristine condition throughout the move.
  1. Professional Expertise:

     At Blue Ridge Safe, our team consists of highly trained professionals with extensive experience in moving gun safes. We understand the intricacies of transporting these heavy and delicate items, allowing us to handle the process with utmost care and precision.

  1. Meticulous Planning and Execution:

     Our experts excel in meticulous planning, ensuring a seamless and efficient move for your gun safe. We take the following steps to guarantee a smooth transition:

  • Pre-move assessment: Our team evaluates both your current and new locations, taking note of any potential obstacles, narrow spaces, or challenging areas that may require additional precautions.
  • Secure firearm handling: We always recommend that clients remove, store, or transport their own firearms. However, if we are asked to handle them, we remove all guns and valuables and wrap them individually for transport in a secure container.
  • Customized strategies: Depending on the dimensions of your gun safe and the layout of your surroundings, our team devises a customized moving plan that considers factors like staircases, doorways, and tight spaces.
  • Clear communication: We establish clear lines of communication among our team members to ensure seamless coordination during the move, preventing any accidents or mishaps.
  1. Safe Transportation:

     Our primary objective is to safely transport your gun safely from point A to point B. Our professionals adhere to the following practices to ensure secure transportation:

  • Proper loading and securing: We use advanced strapping techniques to secure your gun safe to our transportation vehicles, preventing any movement or damage during transit.
  • Cautious driving: Our experienced drivers operate with the utmost care, employing safe driving practices to ensure a smooth journey for your gun safe.
  1. Peace of Mind:

     At Blue Ridge Safe, we are the area's highest volume safe dealer, so we understand the value of your gun safe and the importance of providing peace of mind during the moving process. Trust us to ensure your investment is safeguarded every step of the way.
