Safe removal and disposal Brisbane

by | Nov 13, 2013 | .

Quite often people move into a new home or lease a new business premises only to be greeted by a big heavy safe. A lot of the time they are locked. We operate our safe removal and disposal service as an adjunct to our Safe & Vault division. The main reason big heavy safes are left behind is that moving the beast can be a difficult task. Whist it might seam easy it is a dangerous activity for unskilled workers such as furniture movers.
I get numerous calls from desperate shop owners who are frantically working to a deadline. Of course with any specialised field there is a waiting period. We are very customer orientated however co-ordinating 3 men and the associated moving equipment can be logistically challenging. Quite often they simply run out of time and must leave it where it is.
A locked safe is actually less than worthless. The reason being that the current price for scrap metal is $90 per 1000kg so a 400 kg safe will bring approx $36.However the problem is you have to take it to the metal recyclers. In the bad old days dodgy work practices practices were common place. There is NO WAY we could do any of our safe moves the same way now.
Because safe moving can be a high risk activity it is critical to have the appropriate number of workers and the correct equipment. If the safe is locked we have to first crack it open (there is a cost for this task) and the higher the grade the more difficult it is to open.
Once the safe is open we may be able to refurbish and sell it to recover these costs. Elevators, lifts and stairs present the most risky jobs for us. In these situations it is imperative to know the exact weight of the safe. We have hundreds of safe blueprints and safe plans which tell us this information. The starting point to any safe removal and disposal is to get us a picture of the safe. Once we have identified the safe we will come out & do a site specific inspection.

I would HIGHLY recommend KGB Security. We have used them twice (so far) and... BOTH times have been a pleasure. They are extremely helpful, very professional and went above and beyond to ensure our matters were dealt with promptly. They are super friendly, easy to talk to and easily talk through steps over the phone. Their expertise was greatly appreciated!read more

Called KGB security about my heavy timber pivot door, to install a door damper... to stop it from slamming. Kel asked me to send photos of the door mechanism. He called back shortly thereafter to advise me that we have a door damper already, so no need to waste money for one. He taught me how to adjust the damper - 'tramsom closer'. It worked! My door doesn't slam any more. It only took me a few minutes and a screwdriver. He saved me lots of money. They are the most ethical and professional locksmith. I'm very grateful.read more

I cannot speak highly enough about this company!I have an old fireproof... cabinet that I was concerned about and gave KGB a call for some professional advice.Not only did I get information on the issue at hand, but I even got the contact number for someone that worked at the now long deceased company who could give me more detailed information.I would recommend them for anything to do with safes, cabinets or anything to do with security!read more
