Move A Safe to Montreal, South Shore or North Shore


There are many reasons to have a safe at home: to keep important documents, value objects, or firearms. For personal needs (including handguns), the safes are relatively small. However, if you have a store or a business, those safes are generally larger (and heavier).

But don’t let yourself be fooled by their size, safes are made with high-density and very heavy materials in order to protect your belongings. If you need to move a safe to Montreal, you have a high risk of seriously injuring yourself if you want to do it on your own. If you drop the safe, it’s not the safe that you will damage, but the floor, the stairs or a part of your body.

It is then best to call upon professionals to move a safe to Montreal, like Demenagement Total, including for a simple move from one room to another, within your home or your business, or for a delivery from the store where you just purchased it.

All Types of Safes

In a residence, we can find various types of small-size safes, but the safes on the market are as varied as your needs can be. A small safe, about the size of a small microwave, can be bolted to the floor or to the wall (like in some hotel rooms) to allow you to store important documents, value items or handguns, in order to protect them from thiefs and fire.

But, even though they’re small, those safes remain very heady and this complicates their transportation greatly. The intervention of experts who have the required experience in moving such objects is necessary to move a safe to Montreal.

If you have a large safe to store long firearms, for example, or a larger quantity of items, the task becomes even more daunting, and it is then imperative to call upon professionals to move a safe to Montreal, like Demenagement Total.

Special Techniques

Carrying out the task to move a safe to Montreal requires obviously the proper equipment to lift, transport and secure this particular object. Sometimes, it will be necessary to unbolt the safe from the wall or the floor in order to move it, then do the opposite operation to bolt it in its new location. You need to have the proper tools and know how to use them, because it’s not the time to improvise.

A professional knowing how to move a safe to Montreal will inspect the complete path the safe will follow to verify if the door frames are large enough, if there are stairs to be used (up or down), the various floor covering materials, etc. Depending on the size and the weight of the safe, different protection techniques will be applied to protect the door frames, walls, floors, etc. Certain elements, like wooden staircases, can greatly complicate, even prevent, the transportation of the safe.

Disassembling of Certain Parts

Depending on the type of the safe, it’s possible that our experts have to remove some parts, like the door, the interior shelves, etc., to move a safe to Montreal. Those pieces will be removed to prevent damages during the transportation or to lighten up the main furniture and thus easing up its handling.

The main furniture and its detached parts will be carefully wrapped by our professionals to ensure their total protection during the transportation and reassembled in a precise manner once at the destination.
Please note that the weight makes it a relatively problematic task to move a safe to Montreal. We have the personnel, the equipment and the trucks to take care of most residential and commercial needs related to the transfer or the delivery of safes.
