If you have expensive or heirloom belongings, whether it’s antique jewellery or passports or cash, that you would like to store more securely, you may have considered purchasing a safe. Or perhaps your business is such that a much larger secure storage area is required for your files or merchandise. Either way, Pro Locksmiths can help you with the purchase of a quality safe in Toronto. But what about installation? Most safes for home or business use are quite heavy. Let us save you the backbreaking work and effort by transporting and installing your new safe to the location of your choice.
Why professional safe installation?
There are many things that are safe to DIY, but safe installation usually isn’t one of them! A poorly installed safe can do more than damage the drywall; it can leave your precious possessions vulnerable to thieves and natural disasters like floods and fires. The technicians at Pro Locksmiths are trained on proper safe installation techniques. Here is an overview of the steps we take when correctly installing your safe:
- Help you determine an inconspicuous location. Where do you want your safe installed? A safe that is meant to contain tax records probably shouldn’t be put on the floor of a basement that’s prone to flooding. The installation area should also be free from electrical wires and plumbing. Burglary safes, which tend to have thick walls and be very heavy, should be placed in a location that can bear their weight. Depending on the nature of the safe and what you will be using it for, we will consider other areas such as closets, offices, and even the garage.
- Securely fit/affix your safe to the floor, wall, or under-floor. Safes must be properly fitted flush with the wall cavity or securely in the concrete or wood floor, not only for the security of your goods, but to ensure that you comply with the manufacturer’s warranty. Improper installation and fit of the safe can also render your insurance policy null and void if you ever have to file a claim.
- Clean up & maintenance. Our trained safe engineers will advise you on the proper maintenance of the safe going forward, provide a Pro Locksmiths technician’s contact info for future service, advise you about the warranty, and leave your home in a broom-swept condition.
