Default Moving with pistols and long guns - corporate move

Helping someone plan a corporate cross country move. Fortune 50 Company is paying moving company to come in, box up and ship his furniture cross country.

Friend has a few pistols and two long guns.

No no issues with legality of guns in any state, etc.

Friend is going to fly to new home city. He cannot travel with the guns.

I’m figuring two hard side locking (2 padlocks on each case). Declare the guns to the shipper and photograph them.

Be be there when they’re loaded and unloaded from truck.

Looking for suggestions, comments.

Suggestions on locking rifle case (AR & Duck hunting shotguns)

Friend cannot transport the guns on the plane.

Recommendations on how to package ammo?

thanks.

He can legally fly with the guns. Checked baggage, locks he has the only keys to and has to declare prior to boarding.it takes about 20 minutes start to finish..I've travelled all over to hunt...it's a fairly painless process actually.

Tell me how this works? He’s going to a city where he’s not connected to a FFL guy.

Thanks.

corporate jet = no firearms.

Are we talking 3-4 guns total? Heck I'd pack em, pad em well and box em prior to movers showing up...let them haul it..They won't ever know what's in the box...
now if it were my gun collection
​they'd need a bigger truck..

Thanks.
his local ffl will help him pick one on the receiving end. Can even be the local Bass Pro Shop etc. FedEx them or use shipper of choice. FFLs ensure the interstate transfer is valid.

No worries moving to Texas with guns. Box em up and let the movers ship them. NY, NJ, California etc. are different stories.

He does not have to be familiar with and FFL in whatever town he is going to. It is likely the local gun shops will do a transfer for him.

He has to fill out the paper work and get approved where ever he is going through what ever shop.
Local Pawn shops are usually FFL holders as well.

25 bucks a transfer

my ffl fees typically run me about $35. Figure times two, Transferring hand guns across state lines to you should employ ffl’s.

Just did this with a friend, we put them in the truck and covered them up. Pretty high dollar guns too.

FFL holder is only required on the receiving end.
