Safes and Vaults

We provide the services of opening and repair of safes for commercial, residential, government and we service some of the manufacturers' products. There have been a lot of different lock and safe manufacturers over the last 100 years and we have most the literature on the industry. If we come to an item we do not know, we can find out through organizations that we belong to. We can also refer you to or bring in from out of the area someone that knows the particular item. I am a firm believer that you do not tell a person that you can do something that you are not 100% sure of. Items like bank vaults take a person that specializes in bank vaults. This is an item that you can not afford to mess up and it is better to be honest than to step in territories where you do not belong. If you can photograph the safe and e-mail it over, we can verify the internal bolt work, relockers, manufacture of lock and if it might have any glass plate relock device in it. Over the years there have also been some safes that have a glass vial of teargas in them. Over time it may become lethal and if broken guess what? This is why sometimes homework must be done before proceeding. Drilling should be a last resort.

When dealing with residential clients we must verify who owns the safe before we can proceed to open it. We have recieved phone calls from people who are supposed to be flying out, their passport is in their safe, they lost the combination and it needs to be opened in one hour. The question would have to be brought up, does it really belong to you or is it your husband's or your wife's. If they are not both present we can not open it. If we did we would end up in court or jail. I am not saying we will not open it, but it all depends on the situation.
