Safe removal is definitely a specialist skill. We have moved safes upstairs, downstairs, in cupboards across offices, across town even interstate. With the tough workplace health & safety rules many furniture movers have opted to bypass this sometimes tricky activity. Brisbane City has special consideration when shifting a safe. As Brisbane City Council will only allow parking for large vehicles (trucks fitted with cranes) in a few very specific places.
The most important part with any safe removal is to accurately determine the safes weight. This is critical when moving a safe. If the safe has to go in an elevator, down stairs or across a wooden floor there are huge safety and injury considerations. We have a dedicated team of safe removal experts and all the “rated” specialty safe moving equipment. Much of which has been modified or reenforced to deal with the weight of heavy safes.
When removing or position a safe “floor loading” must be taken into account. We recommend that where there is any concern a structural engineer be consulted to sign off on the plan. We recently moved two 3000kg safes for one of the big banks. It required the installation of 20 support jacks under the concrete slab as the damage to the floor would have resulted in a repair bill exceeding $40,000.
Its also worth noting that moving safes across tiled floors can add the the cost of the move as we place wooden sheets down first then steel on top to protect the surface. We can also move your safe “incognito” rather than have it exposed on a truck for all to see. When you pick the new place for the safe to go please allow a bit of room. If it is too snug it can make it much harder and this could increase the price. If you have any questions please call or send a picture by email to …. [email protected]
