What to Consider Before Removing or Relocating Your Safe

The following are just a few of the details we need to take into consideration before removing or re-siting a safe.

Details of the safe

  • Type of safe (if possible manufacturer and model)
  • The safes external dimensions
  • Whether keys / combinations are available so that it can be opened (making moving it considerably easier)

Location of the Safe

  • Where the safe is situated within the building (ground or upper floors)
  • If the safe is located on upper floors, whether the building has a lift or stairs. If a lift, the maximum weight capacity for the lift, if stairs, how many flights
  • Whether the safe will fit through doorways, details of any other hazards that might need to be negotiated on the route out
  • Size of stairwells and landing dimensions. Whether the stairs are straight or have turns, floor surface
  • Access to the site
  • How close to the building can a vehicle park and are there any restrictions on heavy goods vehicles in the proximity
  • When can access to the premises / street be obtained
  • Are there any height restrictions in the area or entrance to the building
  • Are there steps to the front of the building, curbs on the pavement to consider

Where a safe is being relocated or re-sited within another building, similar considerations need to be taken for the new premises – see our safe installation page for more details.

Other Risks

Does the safe pose any other risks that need to be taken into account when being moved such as Asbestos which can be found in some older models.  If you have any concerns about the potential for Asbestos in your older safe, please get in touch with us and we can advise accordingly.
