When you decide to move your gun safe, you will submit a request for a gun safe moving estimate. Your moving company will pair you with a dedicated moving specialist, who will act as your main point of contact, help plan your move, and get all the paperwork ready. Then, your moving company will present you with an Order of Service document detailing your requested services and their respective costs. On your moving day, your moving crew will arrive on time with all the equipment needed to move your firearm safe. They’ll wrap your gun safe in protective padding to keep it secure, navigate it through narrow areas and flights of stairs, and put it in the right room if you’re moving within the same house. For moves to a different location, they’ll securely load it onto their air-cushioned moving truck. Once the crew has finished the move, you and the team leader will review the Bill of Lading, a document listing every item and its pre-move state. After everything is set up and you’ve verified the condition of your items, you will finalize the process by signing off on the Bill of Lading with the team leader.

Transporting a gun safe requires specialized equipment, dollies, leverage straps, and moving blankets.

The U.S. federal government requires all moving companies who advertise and complete long-distance moves to obtain a USDOT license. Both federal and state laws require moving companies to have a state license to advertise and complete in-state, local, or in-home moves. If a moving company is not licensed, that is a red flag you should avoid. In terms of insurance, it is industry standard to carry general liability and workers comp insurance policies. This way, all parties involved in the move are protected.
At Yolo Transfer & Storage, we prioritize the security and safety of the items we move. We are fully licensed and insured, operating under our van line’s USDOT (2256609), our motor carrier license (MC 770031), and our California State License (MTR 0189819). In addition, we carry both workers comp and general liability insurance policies. Our A+ BBB rating further emphasizes our dedication to top-tier service and security.
Various factors, such as weight, size, and moving distance, shape the cost of a professional gun safe move.

Protecting the gun safe during transport without damaging the property around it is a priority for professional movers. Leading moving companies use moving blankets, dollies, extra padding and cushioning, and specialized equipment to prevent potential damage. It is also common for moving companies to lay out floor protection, pad corners and door frames with moving blankets, and pre-plan their path for moving the gun safe to prevent any damage to the safe’s surrounding environment.
Yolo Transfer & Storage takes this commitment to the next level. Using premium packing materials and relying on our seasoned team’s expertise, we ensure every gun safe and its surrounding environment remains pristine throughout the move.

In the moving industry, experience is crucial when managing valuable specialty items like gun safes. Reputable moving companies specializing in gun safe moves train their moving crews and hire movers with experience moving firearm safes. However, not all moving companies have experience with moving gun safes. This is why it is essential for the safety of your firearm safe to hire a moving company that specializes in gun-safe moving.
At Yolo Transfer & Storage, we provide specialized training for our moving crew to hone their expertise in handling gun safes. As a family-driven operation, we prioritize trust and quality in every move. We have movers on staff who have been with us for decades and have many gun safe moves under their belt. With 50 years of experience in the moving industry, you can rest easy knowing your gun safe is in safe hands at Yolo.
Transporting gun safes is a complex job; not just any tool will do the trick. Think of it like this: it’s like moving a grand piano or a large fridge, but potentially even heavier. Movers use strong carts (called dollies) that can handle the weight, moving blankets to prevent scratches, special straps to help lift and carry, gadgets to help go up and down stairs without issues, pads to keep floors scratch-free, and other tools to slide or lift the safe as needed. The better the equipment, the smoother the move, ensuring both the safety of the gun safe and everything around it.
When it comes to our approach at Yolo Transfer & Storage, we make sure we have the right equipment for the job. We don’t just have the basic tools; we also invest in the latest gear to have the ability to move gun safes of any weight. So, when you choose us to move your gun safe, you’re not just getting a moving service: you’re getting a top-notch, hassle-free experience where we handle the heavy lifting, so you can sit back and relax.
The duration of gun safe moves is contingent upon factors such as the safe’s size, distance, and how easy it is to access the pick-up and drop-off locations. If you’re moving a gun safe within your home, it might only take a few hours, while a local or in-state move usually only takes a day. However, long-distance moves can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. The best way to estimate the timeline of your gun safe move is to request an estimate from your moving company.
At Yolo Transfer & Storage, we understand that timing is important in all moves, which is why you will receive your estimated timeline for your firearm safe move with your moving quote. We believe in setting clear expectations so that our customers can plan accordingly. While we aim for swift and efficient moves, our top priority remains the safe and secure transportation of your gun safe.
