    Suggestions for transporting large safe?

    Anybody have any suggestions for a service that could be used to transport a 1000lb safe from NW Iowa to DSM??

    Would need them to pick up the safe at the home of my grandparents and then bring it to my house in DSM.

    Economical options appreciated.

    I will gladly hold onto any valuables inside, thereby making the safe a bit lighter and easier to move.

    From what I've been told, the safe is clear of any valuables. Just a heavy hunk of iron I'm wanting to get from point A to point B.

    ABF? They've delivered some heavy items I've purchased. Don't know cost.

    You could probably buy a hoist from Harbor Freight for what it would cost you to ship it. Of course that won't get it out of the house but could load it on a truck. Have you tried any moving companies? Most will charge you at least two hours plus you'd be paying their drive time up there and then back to their office once in dsm. I'm sure they have a heavy items clause too.

    Couldn't you just put it on a trailer and pull it behind a pickup? Or put it in the back of a pickup?

    For the right price, I could probably help you with that.

    I'll keep that in mind. Might PM you if and when I know for sure I am getting the safe. I'm still getting sketchy information on the actual weight. Most is 1000lbs, least is 700lbs.

    I have a truck, but I'd rather not deal with it and would rather pay for someone to get it here.
