When you need to move a safe, you need to call in the professionals.
Our Kelowna moving company has the specialized equipment and processes needed to move safes to keep both the safe and your flooring protected during transportation.
We transport a full range of sizes and types of safes, including safes for:
- Loan companies and banks
- Guns and hunting and fishing equipment
No matter what your safe holds, chances are it weighs hundreds or even thousands of pounds, which could destroy your flooring without the proper protection and equipment. Before moving your safe, our movers lay down Masonite wood to protect your flooring from lines and tracks.
