I am looking for recommendations on who to hire to move a gun safe from garage to garage.

I called lots of places when we moved and had almost no luck with a 1,200 lb. safe. Lots of places will do smaller though. There was a piano moving company that most of the smaller moving companies recommended, but I was over their size limit.

Honestly if it's garage to garage your best bet would be to find a contractor with skidloader or forklift and a trailer. That's how I moved mine in CR. Loaded it onto the trailer strapped to the skidloader and unloaded in the new driveway.

I have a safe mover you can use and will allow you to move it on flat ground by yourself.  It will lift the safe high enough to set on a pedestal if you have one for your safe. I just use a skidsteer with pallet forks to load and unload from the truck or trailer.

My brother has done it by himself before with my safe mover, a dump trailer and wench, no skid steer needed.

I am at a point in my life I am not moving again, not moving any of the safes ever again.  Been there, done that too many times.  Will make a great deal on that safe mover to any motivated  member here who wants a good side hussle.

Kirby's Moving Company will do it in central Iowa but it will not be cheap.

FWIW they use the exact same piece of equipment NorthFork has.... and several strong backs.
