Such hard workers, showing up on time totally ready to work hard and do it right. We had them pack, store and deliver. We would certainly use them again and recommend them to make your move complete and at a reasonable price.

My husband and I were looking for a local mover in Santa Cruz/Monetrey area to move furniture from our recently deceased Dad's home in Saratoga. The family agreed we would donate all the furniture and other items to the Pajaro flood situation. We... contacted Sister Rosa Delores Rodruguez's (founder and manager) knowing - "Casa de la Cultura Center" is a major resource center for Pajaroans. With excitement for the furniture for the people and a dedicated warehouse to place the items, all we needed was a mover. My husband randomly picked Central Coast Movers to get bid for moving costs as this was going to be part of the families donation. The day of moving, Martin Lopez (owner) and his 3 assistants and 2 moving trucks started moving early morning and completed moving everything out of a 2500 sq ft house in 2.5 hours. (this ialso ncluded outside furniture and garage items and 25 boxes of dishes etc already packed ). Delivered and loved into the Pajaro warehouse.They were meticulous while moving in the house and careful not to damage the inside of the house or the items. The offered help when we needed and asked about items before moving. We could not have found a better or more conscientious moving company. We have had expereicne with many and they had "issues". We holdheartedly recommend these movers.. reliable, meticulous, courteous and efficient. Now you ask ..pricing? The owner knowing this was a donation move, offered to NOT charge us for the moving fee. He is not a major corporation but self owner with his own challenges these days but magnanimous to donate his service for the good of the Pajaroans devastated by the flood. Rare individual and company ... highest praises for Central Coast Movers!!read more

These guys made my move so much easier. After a change of plans just before my move, I had two days to hire movers—for New Years Day! These guys were professional and fast, and packed my stuff safely and securely in the moving truck. I would... definitely hire them again or recommend them to more

Gun Safe Movers

Moving for the First Time?

As a gun-safe owner, you’ll talk with a moving expert about planning your gun-safe move. Your moving company will pair you with a dedicated moving coordinator. Your moving coordinator will help plan the move, decide the best way to do it and get all the paperwork ready. Then, your moving company will present you with an Order of Service document detailing the services you’ve requested and their costs. On your moving day, your moving crew will come with all the necessary equipment. They’ll wrap your gun safe to keep it secure, maneuver through tight spaces and stairs when moving it out, and put it in the right room if you’re moving within the same house. If you’re moving elsewhere, they’ll put it on their truck. After that, you and the team leader will go over the Bill of Lading, which documents all of the items that are moved and their condition before moving. Once your moving team has finished moving your gun-safe to its final destination, you’ll check your belongings to ensure their safety and sign off on the Bill of Lading with the team leader.

How Do Moving Companies Transport a Gun-Safe?

In the world of moving, transporting gun safes poses unique challenges. Due to their weight and value, handling them with care is crucial. Typically, moving companies use specialized equipment, dollies, leverage straps, and moving blankets to ensure the safe is transported without damage or injury. Moving crews should also be trained to take special care when transporting the gun safe to avoid any damage to the property and the gun safe.

At Central Coast Movers, we train our professional moving crews to handle gun-safe moves effortlessly. Using specialized heavy-duty equipment and techniques, we meticulously move your gun safe, ensuring its safety as well as that of your home. We take extraordinary measures, including using soft landing spots and utilizing support mechanisms to minimize vibrations and impact during transport and landing. Our team considers every detail, from narrow hallways to tight corners, ensuring a seamless experience.

Are Gun Safe Moving Companies Insured?

For gun-safe moving companies, it’s essential to have insurance coverage like general liability and worker’s comp policies. These insurances ensure the protection of both the client’s property and the workers on the job.

Central Coast Movers takes this very seriously. We maintain general liability and worker’s comp policies, safeguarding our clients and employees. When you choose us, you’re opting for a company that prioritizes safety and accountability.

How Much Does It Cost to Move a Gun-Safe?

The cost to move a gun safe generally depends on factors like the number of safes and their weight. Different moving companies might offer varied pricing based on these and other considerations. Based on our research, gun-safe moves can range from $100 to $1000, with a national average of around $525.

However, at Central Coast Movers, transparency is our motto. We believe in transparent, upfront pricing with no hidden surprises. While the cost may vary based on specific requirements, customers can always get a free, no-obligation moving estimate by filling out our simple online form.

What Precautions Do Moving Companies Take to Prevent Damage to the Gun Safe During the Move?

When it comes to moving gun safes, preventive measures are essential. Companies usually wrap the safe in moving blankets and plastic wrap, lay out floor protection, utilize special equipment and dollies, use extra padding, and train our staff meticulously to avoid damage to the gun safe and the property during the move.

For Central Coast Movers, each gun-safe move is executed with utmost precision. We use top-grade wrapping materials to shield the safe and deploy expert techniques, ensuring a damage-free move from start to finish.

Are Moving Crews Trained and Experienced in Handling Gun-Safes?

In the moving industry, not all teams are equipped or trained to handle specialty items like gun safes. Having a crew with experience and training is essential for a safe and efficient move. Since gun-safes are valuable, heavy items, many moving companies will not move gun safes over a specific weight limit, if they move them at all.

At Central Coast Movers, our staff consists of trained professionals well-versed in handling gun safes. With over 20 years of experience in the moving industry, our team ensures your valuable possession is handled with the care and expertise it deserves. To learn more about our company and team, check out our About Us page.

What Kind of Equipment Do Moving Companies Use to Transport Gun-Safes?

Professional moving companies use a variety of specialized equipment like dollies, moving blankets, hand trucks, lifting straps, stair climbers, floor protectors, sliders, and rigging tools to transport heavy gun safes. These tools are precisely crafted to accommodate the size and weight of gun safes, allowing them to be moved efficiently within homes or for loading and unloading from moving trucks.

When you choose Central Coast Movers, you’re selecting a team equipped with state-of-the-art gear designed specifically for gun-safe transportation. Our tools, combined with our expertise, guarantee a safe and efficient move.

How Long Do Gun Safe Moves Take?

The duration of gun safe moves largely depends on factors such as distance, size of the safe, and accessibility of locations. Some moves can be accomplished in a few hours to a day, while other moves can take a few days or more. Local or in-home gun-safe moves should only take a day or two, while long-distance gun-safe moves can take much longer. For long-distance moves, it is a good rule of thumb to allow one loading day, one unloading day, and an extra day for every 500 miles.

For Central Coast Movers, efficiency is a crucial pillar of our services. While ensuring safety, we also strive to complete the move in a timely manner. The exact time will depend on specifics, but our commitment to prompt and effective service remains unwavering. However, when you move your gun safe with Central Coast Movers, you will get your estimated timeline and delivery date with your moving quote. This way, you will have all the information before you sign on with us so that you can make the right decision for you.
