Safe moving services Brisbane & SEQ

by | Mar 17, 2020 | .

Our safe moving services have been used on some interesting jobs but first a little background. In the olden days (wow never thought I would begin a blog with that) safe movers did most of their safe moving with brawn and muscle. Today any safe moves we do must be done with safety as the number one concern. Safety for any person in the vicinity of the workplace and then safety to any property or structures.

To ensure a safe move (sorry) it is paramount to know the exact weight of the safe in question. There are 2 main techniques to determine this. We will usually inspect the safe to work out which model and therefore its weight or in some situations where the model and weight are indeterminable. Use of weighing scales, big weighing scales to accurately measure the safes weight is sometimes needed. On another job the safe was installed in a Brisbane office building some 20 years ago. Possibly installed by a large crane and the elevator’s maximum capacity was well under to remove it in one piece. Our primary plan was to remove the door which is usually around 30% of the total weight of the safe.

The building owner was concerned some damage may occur to the elevator if it was overloaded. It was essential to accurately weigh both the safe door as well as the body. We removed the door which can be very tricky by itself then we weighed each component of the safe. This enabled us to safely remove the safe in two parts.

After hours safe moving available if required

With most safe moving services we perform is carefully measured and we will not cut corners or jeopardize safety for income. That said we have only knocked back one job in the last 12 years. Stairs are probably the most troublesome part of safe moving jobs as often the stairs will not take the load of the safe and our workers on them. In certain situations we will employ a structural engineer to sign off on the move.

Last year we removed a modular vault from a decommissioned Bank and we had to support the floor as we used a mini crawler crane to do the heavy lifting inside the bank. Finally the best way to get your safe removed or moved is to send us a picture which we can then use to determine an estimation. Call 1300 556500.

I had a first class experience with KGB Security. Kel was very helpful in assisting me to assess my security needs. He didn't try to push anything on me and instead was more concerned with helping me find the most appropriate option. His offsider Alex was also very helpful in assisting me complete the transaction. It was smooth sailing from the get-go. Would thoroughly recommend.read more

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
