Transporting a Gun Vault to an Upstairs Location





As an owner of firearms, the proper acquisition of a gun safe in the home is fundamental in firearm responsibility. The protection of both guns and precious family members make the the purchase of said gun safe a necessity. However, the 600 or so pounds of gun protecting power don’t make the placement of such a gargantuan object an easy move — especially when being transported up a set of intimidating stairs.


Unbeknownst to many, moving a gun safe upstairs is actually substantially more safe than performing a similar stunt in the opposite direction. When carrying out such a transition, the use of a dolly, a securing strap or mechanism and plenty of manpower is entirely essential. Aiding those who plan on attempting such a feat is which counsels, “One person should guide the dolly and safe up while two or three others physically lift the dolly up the stairs, one step at a time.”


Keep in mind that we at Fort Knox will be willing to help you move any newly purchased gun safe. Our business’ pleasure is derived from the customer’s comfort and the moving of a freshly acquired gun safe is no exception.


Another option for guiding a gun safe to its final, permanent destination is by way of a professional moving service. If you’re not fully comfortable with the project at hand, consider conducting a quick search online or through a community’s copy of the Yellow Pages.
