Two weeks ago, Liam the operations manager from Oh Hello nightclub in the Valley had a little bit of an emergency on site that KGB helped him out with.
Someone had accidently locked the safe when there was no one on site with the ability to open it. So on a Friday afternoon at 4.30pm Liam used the source to all things information, Google, and punched in “safe repair brisbane” and after speaking to another locksmith, who wasn’t able to do it at such late notice, was recommended to KGB.
Kel Phillips managed to get our safe cracker, locksmith 007 aka James – no really his name is James, on site within 45mins of the phone call and with some technical listening devices and 3 hours of focused work, managed to crack the safe with 30 mins to spare before opening time.
The remarkable nature of this story is within the detail, with time pressure most technicians would opt to drill the safe combination out to be able to access the contents.
What are these contents, licensing documents that are required at each opening of the club and safe books that are required for the night to night adventures of the club = if they don’t have these accessible, the club could not open = NO TRADE!!. On a Friday night, ouch.
Then this wouldn’t have happened.
So if someone else had used drilling to open the safe what would this mean = either a. more onsite costs to repair the safe (at least another $1500) or b. replacing the safe which is a major do over with a cost of between $5k – $7k for the safe and install, removal would be extra $$ value.
So the moral of this story is, always make sure you are using a licensed locksmith. Each locksmith should have a photo ID present upon request that way you will get a professional resolution to the current problem, that will have your best interests in mind. And check out Oh Hello as it looks like a really cool club bringing a little bit of New York style to Brisbane, here’s the Facebook page to see what is on their horizon for events.
