Getting rid of safe is complicated because WH & S protocols must be strictly followed. In the pre OH & S compliant days lots of people used to move safes but it’s much more than being big and burly, in fact that is only a small requirement. As a general rule older safes are less secure than newer “concrete filled” safes and old safes are contrary to popular belief are far less secure than a modern safe.
Older safes are no match for modern tools. Tools such as angle grinders and diamond saws, older safes are usually filled with sawdust. The current price for scrap metal is approximately 12 cents per kilo so a 400 kilo safe is worth $48. Scrap metal dealers know many safes are full of concrete or sawdust, safes are NOT solid steel.
We can offer you a trade in on your old safe and because we are delivering the new one can easily take the old safe away. Fireproof cabinets and fire proof filing cabinets have also become less popular. The amount of paper that a modern business has to store has been greatly reduced because of computerisation. So if you need a old safe moved, repositioned or taken away call us today and we will give you a competitive estimate. To assist us in giving you an accurate estimate send us a photo of the safe and email it to [email protected], good luck and thanks.
Free safe – take it away please !
We will in certain circumstances remove safes for free but like all things there is a catch. A lot of people think an old safe has some value well it depends. So the value of your old unwanted safe depends on what the access is like. What quality it is and if the safe is open. Many people “inherit ” an old safe when they move into a new home or tenancy. Most people leave safes behind is because it can be expensive to move safes. We do remove safes for free and to offset our costs we refurbish or recycle them and then resell them. Hence we only chose ones that there is a market for, anyway send us a pic of your unwanted safe and we can talk about removing it hopefully for free.
