Buying a new safe to protect your gold investment can be pointless. Pointless if the guys who deliver the safe tell their mates about it at the pub in the afternoon. “Hey we delivered a safe to a house in Annerley today, I think he’s gunna put gold in it”. Thats one of the reasons we do our our gold safe delivery ourselves and in house. Furniture removalists are mostly nice people but having tattoo’s, being a bit naughty are par for the course with some of them.
In Queensland you must be licensed to sell or install safes and security containers. In theory you could be a Bikie gang member by night and safe delivery expert by day. We on the other hand must have a clean criminal record and be finger printed each year as demanded by the Security Providers Act 1991.
Another disturbing trend is for gold investors to purchase a new safe online. Again the difference here is that you could be buying the safe from a person with an extensive criminal record. Its even possible that they give (or sell) the details of each safe they sell to criminal associates.
Recently a Brisbane Gold bullion collector had $200,000 stolen from a cheap safe. It came out that it may have been someone who knew he had gold as he had the gold delivered by courier to his home. In other words the fewer people who know you have gold or silver the better. And those who do know must be squeaky clean.
When we deliver a safe for gold or silver we always wrap it in black plastic. We do this so the neighbours cant see what it is. We will also on request wear plain clothes rather than our uniform. In short ONLY buy a gold safe from someone who is licensed. Furthermore ONLY use a company who is licensed (rather than furniture removalists). Call us today on 1300 556500 for any questions on gold safes or delivery of same.
