Steps and stairs do complicate safe moving and any move where steps or stairs are encountered does increase the cost. We will inspect the floor the safe must travel over to ensure that it will hold the weight. If there is any doubt we will engage a structural engineer to sign off on the job.
People regularly ask us to move safes out of a building when they are moving or closing a branch. When an elevator is involved we often get an elevator technician to oversee the operation. Many elevators have overload sensors in the floor which stop the lift from working when overloaded. If too much weight is concentrated in one area of the lift floor even though the lift capacity is sufficient the lift wont work.
Moving a safe into a house presents more complications than into (or out of) a business. Doorways tend to be smaller and the flooring is generally weaker than a commercial building. When ever we deliver a safe in Brisbane we always recommend bolting the safe down and we have a variety of techniques to secure the safe to the floor.
We can also do any safe moving out of normal business hours to have less impact on the your customers or and trade. In the event the safe moving is to be done in a shopping center we can liaise with the management to comply with any site specific inductions. If you have any questions about safe moving anywhere in Brisbane call us on 1300 556500.
