When you decide to move your gun safe, you’ll begin by requesting an estimate. The moving company will assign a dedicated coordinator to oversee your move. This coordinator will assist in planning the entire operation, determining the optimal approach, and preparing all necessary documentation. You’ll then receive an Order of Service document outlining the specific services you’ve opted for and their respective charges. On the day of the move, a prepared moving team will arrive equipped with all the tools required. They’ll ensure your gun safe is securely wrapped, carefully navigate through confined spaces and stairs, and place it in the desired room if you’re relocating within the same residence. If your move is to a different location, they will safely load your gun safe onto their truck. Following this, you’ll review the Bill of Lading with the team leader, a crucial document that lists all items being moved and their condition. Once the move is completed and your gun safe is settled in its new spot, you’ll inspect it for potential damages. After confirming the safety of your belongings, you’ll finalize the move by endorsing the Bill of Lading alongside the team leader.
