Good chance I'm buying a second hand safe from a person in Lynnwood.  I'm in Snohomish Co.

Any recommendations on a mover to pick up and deliver an 800 lb safe?

As long as you don't have to go up and down any stairs just get a couple of strong buddies and a couple of furniture dollies, That's how I move my 1200lb safe. other than that I would use NW Safe. I did price them moving my safe on my last move up in Monroe and it was $300-400 if I remember correctly, I ended up moving it myself.

They do the whole State as I recall, probably would schedule you when they would be in the area doing another close delivery.

There may be someone closer to your location but NWSafe is reputable.

We had an ARF Team Member who worked there and was active in the safe forum for years.  Have not seen him post for 5+ years.

There was a thread from another ARF Member who lived in Hawaii and based on recommendations here had a safe shipped to him (obviously via ocean freight), went off without a hitch.

Their showroom probably has 100 safes, all the way from mailbox size to TL30-X6.

+1 for moving it yourself, with a strong friend or two.  Get a dozen golf balls, have 4 or so under the safe at all times and it'll roll around with little effort.

I like pipes when going straight, golf balls when you need to turn a hard corner.

Buy 4 pipes a few inches wider than the safe and the same diameter of a golf ball.  Non threaded pipes are what you seek.

Moving a safe is pretty easy IF you take your time and have an idea what your doing.

A large crowbar to tilt up the corners, then slip metal pipes/rods underneith to roll it around on, and a pallet jack for the long distances. You will need a pallet jack for 800lbs. Do not try using a hand truck or dolly for that. If that thing tilts too much one way or the other, you're fucked. You wont be able to stop it from falling. You'll also need a low trailer to load it onto or a truck with one of those lift gates.

Or just let the professionals do it. They have all the gear and watching them do it looks like childs play.

Hiring a dedicated outfit like NWsafe (other than a random moving company) will damn near guarantee you wont get visited by thieves sometime down the road.

If you want/need to do it yourself, and have stairs, you can rent stair climbers from Sun Coast, United Rentals and similar local outfits.  Sun Coast have a 1500lb one from Power Mate:

Honestly, it looks pretty useful if you need to roll it around and didn't want to mess with pipes/golf balls, this vid shows the extra pair of wheels for rolling around flat surface towards the end:

I moved a much smaller safe, less than 400 lbs with golf balls.  Took the door off too.

Yup. They've moved mine multiple times. Good people.

Krikey!

I have two quotes.  Moving the safe is about the same as I paid for it.

Any high school linemen want to earn a few bucks?
