The process of your safe relocation and safe transportation can be daunting but the best way to avoid delays
and unnecessary costs is gathering all crucial information for our crew to move your safe smoothly.
There are a couple of things to consider before you book your service with us.
The information we share on our website is based on the clients' feedback and our own experience of what went wrong in the past
but could have been avoided if certain information had been established first.
In general, all free-standing safes come with fixing holes allowing them to be bolted at their base.
Most safes are supplied complete with Anchor Bolts designed to be used with a solid surface such as concrete or brick.
Solid wood such as floor joists are also suitable but require alternative heavy duty wood screws.
We do not recommend bolting just to floor boards as they are not sturdy enough.
In case you do not have a solid floor surface, you are kindly advised to consider a chemical installation or wall installation.
If the security safe / deposit safe includes fixing holes at the rear, it is suitable for bolting into a solid brick wall.
It will still require support at the base though.
We advise against installing your safe to a stud wall as this could cause damage to your property and will not provide security.
As mentioned before, if you choose to install your safe to a wall, please make sure that the skirting board in this part is removed.
If you leave a space between the safe and the wall, then it would be easy to pry the safe from the wall and compromise the overall security.
If you have an underfloor heating, bolting your safe down to the floor is not advised.
Instead, you could consider a chemical installation which involves securing the safe to the floor by means of an industrial
strength adhesive to avoid potential damage to the underfloor pipe.
As your safe installation is more or less permanent, if you are planning safe removal at some point, it will come with damaging the floor.
Therefore, you need to consider all the variables very carefully to avoid unnecessary costs.
