Figured I'd start a new thread.

Anyone have any recommendations on safe movers in the DSM area? Looking to have it taken off the moving truck and taken into the house via a walk-in. I thought there was a thread on this a while back, but can't seem to find it.

Thanks.

ETA: Tried 2 men and a truck, All Mighty Movers, Black Belt Movers, and Adamantine and all said they don't move anything over 7/800 lbs and no one had suggestions. I'd settle for just getting off the truck into the garage at this point. Thanks.

I'm free Monday and Tuesday, I'm down to help, I'm not a professional mover, but helped move a safe earlier this year.

That was just loading into the bed of a pickup, and off the bed of the pickup.

Anyone else willing to help out?

Take the door off and it'll save you some weight.

FYI Kirby's Moving Co. Has agreed to do it. Pretty damn pricey, but they're only ones I could find who would return a phone call to move a safe of this size.

Much appreciated to everyone that offered. Issue is it'll be on a semi with no lift gate. Movers want it off their truck. The cost to get someone out to do just that part is 75% of what it would be to have them put it in the basement. Was almost at the point of renting a fork truck and driving it through the yard!

Not tiny. I have another that's an RSC that the movers will just put on an appliance dolly and call it good.

Who loaded it on a semi without having a plan to get it off ??

kwg

It's not on there yet

But that's the plan.

I honestly didn't figure it would be this big of an ordeal to find someone. Worst case my company has an account with Sunbelt, etc. and I'd rent a fork truck, etc. Was hoping someone would have an easy answer though.

I had to move two ~1100 lbs safes back in 2016, rented a tracked skid steer with pallet forks.  Allowed me to take them from the walkout basement around the house to the front and place on them the truck.  A forklift you are limited to the street and driveway only and the cost are not much different.  The truck rental company (Penske) worked with me and on the other end I emptied the truck except the safes, went to the drop off place, transferred the safes from that truck to a truck with a lift gate and then went back to the location and unloaded them from the lift gate truck and then returned the lift gate truck in less than 4 hours and 30 miles of use.  Worked out as good as it could with what I had to work with at the time.

Kamala says you won't need that gun safe after January 20th.  They will move it for you then for free!

I'm sure I could be persuaded to bring my tracked skidloader over and unload it for you

Pm me

You guys are awesome, much appreciated. Found an outfit that claims they'll do it reasonably that was recommended to me via PM here.


ETA: not the movers mentioned above.

Always the optimist. It's just full of old pizza boxes and a few hundred thousand lost Trump ballots.

Following up....Did you get it taken care of?

It has been a while Sam.  Now that you are back in the area, give me a call when you are ready to do some shooting. 515.554.7338

If you want to coach trap shooting, I may be able to point you into that direction as well.

Good to have you back in the area.

Yes, safe is in the house, thanks again.

Those guys broke their backs to get it in there, but they need to add a 6-wheel dolly to their arsenal!
