After hours key drop box Australia

by | Aug 1, 2021 | . | 0 comments

I have fielded many calls from auto dealers and auto repairers wanting a secure after hours key drop box. In actual fact there a few different reason that people want a drop box for keys. Over the last 40 years I have seen the price for car keys slowly increase. It has now got to the point where replacing a set of car keys can cost as much as $1000. If the keys are stolen the locks will also need to be changed and that can cost $2000 per car. Thus Insurance companies are forcing those who store car keys to make sure they are secure.

If a auto mechanic or panel beater has say, 20 sets of keys stolen the insurance company could easily have to pay $40 or $50K. Now if you have clients that drop off keys after hours you will be forced to keep the keys safe. It would be easy for a criminal to sit waiting and watching for a set of keys to be left and then steal the keys & the car. Its not hard to imagine how any insurance company would react. And we ALL know that Insurance companies will do their very best to deny a claim if there is fault. SO my tip is make sure its VERY hard for criminals to steal keys left unattended.

Make sure the safe or dropbox you decide upon is very secure and doesn’t use light grade steel. Cordless angle grinders are their nemesis !

Sure a Bunnings safe MAY look like it will work but I am here to tell you it wont. Sure cameras will record HOW they got the keys but the Police wont be interested. The after hours key drop box pictured below is made from 10mm thick steel. Our client has lots of car carriers dropping of cars after hours. And needed a sure fire way to stop thieves from “fishing” the keys out of the drop box using a coathanger. The safe we provided was also anchored on the wall with chemset concrete anchors.

We have designed & installed key drop boxes that have a chute that goes through the wall. The keys are then deposited inside a locked safe on the inside of the building. This makes it more difficult than installing a box on the outside of a wall. However this is not always possible. Criminals are also known to break in through the roof to steal car keys. In short the solution to keeping car keys safe can be involved. We can definitely offer many options and tailor a solution to your specific needs. Just call or email us, we ship our safes Australia wide.

The deposit hole has a roof and is offset to make using a wire very tricky

I needed my car key repaired, I had no idea if that was possible or if i was even at the right place. I rocked up at KGB Coopers Plains with no mask on and we are in LOCK DOWN :OI was KINDLY reminded that I needed to have a mask. No attitude, No frowning, just absolute POLITENESS. I eventually managed to find a mask in my car.Although they were not able to help me, they took the time to have a look at my problem (key) and even gave me a temporary solution. Thanking you Jamie. I was also directed to the right place/person and offered to call that person for me. Thanking you Wayne.Though this is just the normal way to interact with one another. It seems these days that a lot of people have forgotten that we all need one another and a simple smile or a kind word go a long way.Best customer service 🙂 Once more, Thank you to both Jamie and Wayneread more

Wayne was able to get Paul their master locksmith to open my cash drawer within a matter of seconds, due to the cheap design and locking mechanism it was deemed an unviable repair for which they didn't charge me anything. Very professional operation and I have no hesitation in recommending them for your lock and security needs, now or in the future.read more

Cal and his team are exceptional. One of our business safes wouldn’t open over the weekend... I contacted Cal on the Saturday and he organised a specialist locksmith to arrive at the store and sort out the problem. They provided prompt, professional and reliable service. I highly recommend KGB Coopers Plain!read more
