Safe Opening

FIXED FEE SAFE OPENING. WE’RE A SAFE BET
If your safe eats up twice as many drill bits as expected or takes far more time than planned,
do not worry, our quoted price to you always remains the same.*

The highest quality safe or the cheapest digital safe, they can all sometimes go wrong.
Keys can be lost or burglars cause damage in their attempted attack.
Please see our identification page before calling. Better still email some pictures please.
Basic digital and some fire safes are charged at standard door opening rates.

For lost keys

Older safes with brass handles can be picked open and new keys made from £200 all inclusive.
Domestic plate safes can be picked open and a new lock fitted from £235 all inclusive.
Better quality commercial safes are priced by their insurance grade and the locks fitted.
Grade 0 from £240, Grade 1 from £300, Grade 2 from £360, Grade 3 from £450.
We will change the lock so that lost or stolen keys can not be used.

If another ‘locksmith’ has already tried drilling your safe and failed, then our job could be far
more difficut and involved. Always ask why they are drilling and how they will repair it before
letting them damage your property.

Key or combination not working

Quality safes have complex door mechanisms which can go wrong. Correct diagnosis of
the problem is essential and requires expert knowledge. Best and worst case estimates
can be given over the phone if enough information is provided. Exact prices can only be
calculated after examining the safe. Photos are a great help please.
