Need To Move A Safe To A New Facility? You'll Need To Do It Carefully Or Hire A Moving Company

Moving your business from one location to another can feel like an overwhelming experience, but it doesn't have to be. One thing that can often be a challenge is the company safe. Most commercial safes are very large and extremely heavy, which means extra care needs to be taken so the safe and the contents of the safe make it through the move without any harm. However, due to the size and weight of the safe, the floors, walls, stairways, and moving vehicle also need to be protected. Here's what you need to know. 

Flooring 

Protecting the floors is essential, even when the safe is placed on a rolling cart. Do not use blankets, tarps, or foam sheets as they could get caught up in the wheels of the rolling cart or, possibly worse, a mover could trip and fall. Instead, use a durable compressed plywood. Place the compressed plywood directly on the floor along the path that will be used. You will need at least two planks of wood in order to move the safe. 

Walls

To protect the walls from scratches or dents, secure foam padding on the corners and edges of the safe. Alternatively, wrap the foam padding around the safe. When using either method, you can secure the foam padding with straps that are designed for such purposes. You can find foam padding and straps at any moving store or hardware store. 

Stairways

Stairways may be the most difficult to move a safe through. If there is an elevator, definitely use it instead. If there is no elevator and the only means of moving the safe out of the facility is by using stairs, it's better to hire a moving company to move the safe than to attempt to do it yourself. Moving companies that specialize in moving safes and other extremely heavy items have specially-designed carts and dollies that can be used to descend and ascend stairs. 

Vehicle

The moving vehicle will need to be protected as well. The safe should be completely secured before it is transported so the safe doesn't shift or fall over, which could cause the driver of the truck to have an accident. While most moving vans that can be rented do have hooks that can be used to tie down large items, an inexperienced person may not know how to correctly and safely secure a safe. Therefore, instead of attempting to do this yourself, hire a safe moving company like Triangle  Safe &  Lock to do it for you.

keyless lock options for your home

Do you hate juggling with your keys to get into your house? This is something that I have hated for so many years. I started looking into some of the keyless locks that I could have installed on my front door to eliminate the need to use a key. There are many different keyless locks to choose from, but the one that I really liked was the one that required a smartphone to unlock it. You can learn all about keyless locks and the smartphone lock that I have had installed on my front door by reading through my blog.
