Thread: How to move a heavy gun safe
11-19-2015, 12:00 PM #11
The scariest part was after winching it out of the pickup. Had it laying on it's back, let it slide down the tailgate so it was resting on the floor and leaning against the truck. Put the truck in reverse to push it upright. Pucker factor happened when I thought it was going to rock onto it's face, but it managed to land upright
This is the reason why I think it's better to have multiple smaller safes instead of one giant one.

I use several short pieces of 3/4" pvc pipe and roll it on that. Used a come-a-long to winch it up the ramp of my trailer on the same pipe rollers. fortunately did not hade to negotiate any stairs.

I used furniture dolleys outside with boards to raise it to the height I needed to let the golf balls take over once I got it past the step into the house... I believe they are a better option than the PVC pipe idea, only because you can manipulate it in any direction you want with ease.

PVC pipe or circular tubing, then some good ratcheting straps to get into the back of the truck. It's a pretty quiet method too, the homeowner never even knew I was there!"They that would give up Essential Liberty, for a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety"

Guy who installed mine had a special dolly/hand truck that would roll and change direction easily. I helped spot him going through one real tight spot, but he moved it and installed it himself.True peace is not merely the absence of tension, it is the presence of justice. - Martin Luther King Jr.
