When it comes to relocating your firearms, ensuring their safety during the move is of utmost importance. If they’re stored in a gun safe, it can be an even more daunting task, as these heavy and bulky items require special handling to prevent damage and ensure proper transportation.

Hiring our professional gun safe moving labor can provide you with the expertise and peace of mind needed to safely relocate your firearms unlike other gun safe movers. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of hiring gun safe moving labor from Moving Help® and share some valuable tips to ensure a smooth and secure move.

1. Enter the Details of Your Move

Finding moving labor online can be overwhelming if you’re not sure where to start. When you use Moving Help — the online Marketplace powered by U-Haul that connects you with labor-only Service Providers near you — the process is simple and sure to help you find exactly what you’re looking for in gun safe moving labor.

Start by visiting our homepage. Once there, enter the details of your move in the space labeled “Location 1.” This includes the address where the gun safe is located, service date, and start time. This information helps Moving Help narrow down your results to only include Moving Helpers who are nearby and able to help.

If you know where you would like the gun to be moved to, you can enter that information in the space labeled “Location 2.” This is optional, however. You can always provide this information later in the process or continue without it.

2. Select “Gun Safe Movers”

After submitting the details of your move, you’ll be provided with a comprehensive list of local moving labor. But before you start parsing the results, you’ll need to ensure the “Gun Safe Moving” box is checked and applied to your search results. You’ll find this option in the “Specialty Services” section. Checking that box will narrow your search to only include professional gun safe moving labor. 

3. Compare Reviews and Star Ratings

Now that your list is narrowed, you can start to compare Service Providers based on factors like star ratings, customer reviews, pricing, and more. Sort your list based on overall rating or price to find what you need faster. If you need other services, such as packing/unpacking, cleaning services, or piano moving, be sure to check those boxes to narrow your search even more. 

When finding moving labor who offers gun moving services on Moving Help, you’ll find it less expensive than hiring traditional gun safe movers. 

4. Select Your Local Gun Safe Movers, Add More Services

Once you have landed on a Service Provider that suits your needs, click the button labeled “Customize & Book.” Here you’ll have the option to adjust your quote further based on additional services, hours needed, and other options. This kind of flexibility might not be available with another moving company. 

You also will be prompted to enter your contact information and more details about your move. This is a great time to provide some specifics of your move to make the provider’s job easier, such gun safe size, estimated weight, its location in your home, and the best route to move it out of your home. 

5. Add a Second Location or Finalize Your Order

If you need help unloading at a second location, continue shopping for Moving Helpers after adding the first location to your cart. Once you have what you need, you can finalize your order and checkout. After placing your order, you’ll receive an email and a text message — if you opted in for text messages.

Keep Safety Top of Mind

Before the providers arrive, make sure to remove the ammunition from your guns and secure all firearms from the safe. Store them separately in locked cases or containers to prevent any mishaps during the move.
