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

Monterey Gun Safe Movers

Moving for the First Time?

Once you request a gun-safe moving estimate, your moving company will pair you with one of their dedicated moving specialists. Your designated moving specialist will schedule your move, handle all the paperwork, and be your person of contact throughout the move. Before the move, an Order of Service will be prepared for you, listing the selected services and the corresponding fees. On your moving day, your moving team will arrive equipped with all the tools needed to move a firearm safe. They’ll adeptly secure your gun safe, wrap it for safety, and station it in your chosen location if it’s a within-home move. If the journey is longer, the safe will be placed in the air-cushioned moving truck. Upon arrival and unloading at your final destination, you and the team captain will go through the Bill of Lading, a comprehensive list that logs each item and its initial status. Finally, you will do a final walk-through, confirming that your home and your firearm safe are in good condition before signing off on the Bill of Lading with the team leader.

How Much Does It Cost to Move a Gun Safe in Monterey?

Moving a gun safe in Monterey, as elsewhere, can be influenced by various factors such as the safe’s weight, size, and the intricacies of the moving location.

However, the cost of your move could be outside of this range.

How Do Moving Companies Transport a Gun-Safe?

The transportation of a gun safe requires proper planning and execution. Given the weight and sensitivity of the firearm safes themselves, specialized equipment and techniques are commonly employed by moving companies to ensure a damage-free move. Proper leverage, support, and protective measures are paramount during transportation.

At Central Coast Movers, we are well-equipped and experienced in handling gun-safe moves. As an A+ rated company by the BBB, we use state-of-the-art equipment and methods to transport your firearm safe securely. Our method involves leveraging soft landing areas and implementing support structures to diminish vibrations and jolts during the move. As a family-owned and operated business, we understand the importance of preserving your valuables, and we treat them as our own.

How Much Experience Does the Team Have in Moving Gun Safes Specifically?

In moving, transporting specialty items like gun safes often requires a unique skill set that not all moving companies have. Given gun safes value, weight, and size, many companies may impose weight limits or avoid handling them altogether. Therefore, ensuring the moving crew possesses the requisite training and experience is essential for a seamless gun-safe move.

Our team at Central Coast Movers consists of professional movers who undergo in-depth training on moving all specialty items, including gun safes. With a legacy spanning over two decades in the industry, we are extremely disciplined when moving gun safes to prevent damage to the gun safe itself and your property. Check out our About Us page to learn more about our moving team.

What Equipment and Techniques Are Used to Keep Gun Safes Secure and Free of Damage?

In the professional moving world, the safe transport of heavy items like gun safes demands a specific arsenal of equipment. Moving companies can use tools such as dollies, hand trucks, moving blankets, lifting straps, stair climbers, floor protectors, sliders, and rigging tools to address the unique challenges moving gun safes presents.

At Central Coast Movers, we recognize the importance of using the right tools for the job. We equip our teams with the above-mentioned specialized equipment, ensuring that each gun-safe move is executed precisely and efficiently. We do this by padding the corners and doorframes that we move the gun safe around with moving blankets. We also wrap the gun safe in plastic wrap and protective material to ensure it does not get scratched during transport.

Do They Offer Any Insurance During the Move?

In the moving industry, ‘insurance’ is called ‘moving valuation.’ Under the umbrella of ‘moving valuation,’ federal stipulations require every moving service to include Limited Liability Protection with every move at no extra cost. For instance, with this baseline coverage, if a 1500lb gun were completely damaged during the move, the moving company would have to compensate you 60 cents per pound, translating to $900 in compensation, despite the gun safe’s actual worth.

Central Coast Movers understands that the basic coverage may not be enough, so we provide additional valuation choices tailored to safeguard your prized possession. Our Full Value Protection ensures that should any harm come to your gun safe, we either restore, replace, or compensate you based on its fair market value. Additionally, for those particularly prized gun safes exceeding the standard valuation, we offer an Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration for items valued at over $100 per pound. In the unlikely event of post-move discrepancies, please contact your moving specialist or call us at (831) 235-6046, and we will work with you to come to a solution quickly.

How Long Does the Gun Safe Moving Process Typically Take?

The duration of the gun-safe moving process depends on several factors, such as the safe’s size, the move’s distance, and any potential challenges associated with the move, like stairs or narrow hallways. If you need to move your gun safe within your home or property, it should take no longer than a few hours. Local moves for gun safes usually take no longer than a day or two. A general rule of thumb for long-distance moves is to allow one day for loading, one day for unloading, and an additional day for every 500 miles traveled. The best way to determine the timeline for your move is to request a gun-safe moving estimate or quote from your moving company.

With Central Coast Movers, efficiency is a hallmark of our service. Our trained professionals are adept at ensuring a swift and safe move. In addition, at Central Coast Movers, we will give you your estimated moving timeline and delivery date before you sign on to move with us. This way, you have the information to make the best decision for you. Whether it’s a local, long-distance, or interstate move, we work diligently to ensure that your gun safe reaches its destination promptly, all while maintaining the highest standards of safety.

Are There Any Preparatory Steps I Need to Take Before the Move?

Preparation is key in ensuring a smooth moving process. For gun safes, this includes emptying its contents, securing any movable components, and providing clear access for the movers. All guns and other contents must be removed from the gun safe before moving for safety reasons. As long as the safe is empty and there is a clear pathway for the movers to access and retrieve the gun safe, your moving crew will take care of the rest.

At Central Coast Movers, we offer guidance on every step, from preparation to the final placement. Your dedicated moving specialist will give you all of the details and preparation steps to get ready for a seamless move.
