When you decide you want a safety box for home we can definitely help you. I have been selling, servicing and installing safety boxes of just about every size and type for almost 40 years. During this time I have seen lots of different safety boxes and now more than ever it can be tricky to sort the good ones from the bad ones. The internet is flooded with cheap safety boxes which we generically call “safes” and as a rough rule of thumb the more you pay the more you get or to be more precise the harder they for criminals to crack open.
When a customer comes into my shop the first thing I always ask is “what is the total value of the items you are wanting to protect from theft ? ” and once I know the value I can point them to the best safe. Most people who want a safe for “home use” usually only have passports, papers and a small amount of jewellery and so recommend the Guardall BFG400 because it has a “cash rating” of $25,000.
This means the safe is designed to stop criminals who target homes and use mainly simple safe cracking tools such as hammers and small pinch bars or crow bars. Of course a customer who has lots of valuable jewellery or is investing in gold bullion will need a much higher grade safe such as the KCR615. The Guardall KCR615 has a $200,000 cash rating and is definitely one of the better safes you can buy. We have sold many types of safes and Chubb used to make the best safes however they have also moved their production plant to Indonesia and I have found the quality and strength lacking.
We have our huge Brisbane safe showroom in Rocklea and we are alway keen to meet customers who want to see safe before they buy it rather than buying it from a brochure or a picture on the internet. Come down and visit me and I will be happy to answer any question you might have.
These are really low grade safety boxes and not suitable for valuables.
