If you need a large safe moving & relocating from one premise to another or even disposal of a large security safe then a MLA licensed locksmith offering safe services maybe be able to help.

Reasons for Removal of a Safe

  • Relocation of a safe from one location to another
  • Just a simple moving of a safe from one room to another within the same building
  • Disposal of a large unwanted safe

Types Of Safes That Need Moving & Relocating

Safes and cabinet come in all types of sizes that most people will not have the equipment move, so a specialised safe engineer will be able to move a large Yale, Chubb Safes or Burton Safe.

  • Underfloor Safes ( very rare that these are moved )
  • Freestanding Safes
  • Cash Deposit Safes
  • Fire Proof Cabinets
  • Gun Safes
  • Relocating of Vaults

How to move a Safe

There will be various methods that a safe engineer will be able to use to move a safe.

Remember some safes are very large and heavy so specialist equipment ( stair climbers, specialist trolleys, cranes ) will be needed to enable the safe to be moved.

  • Move safes up and down stairs
  • In and out of windows
  • Up and down lift shafts

How Much Does It Cost to Move a Safe?

The price to move a safe with full installation we estimate will start from approx £90 plus vat, the cost will depend on the size & weight of the safe and where you are moving the safe to e.g a basement, upstairs, ground floor.

What Is the Cost to Remove & Dispose of a Safe?

We estimate the cost of removal & disposal of a safe could be from £90 plus vat for a safe with a weight of up to 500kg, over that the cost would be higher.

The approx cost to remove & dispose a safe will again depend on the size & weight of the safe and the location i.e is the safe in a basement or upstairs.
