Finding a tradesman for a safe box installation
Getting a secure safe box is one of the best ways for you to protect your most valuable possessions. A sturdy safe that has been bolted to a wall or floor is an obstacle that the average home will not be able to handle. A fire safe can even keep your valuables secure against fires as well as thieves! However, a safe is only ‘safe’ if it is properly installed and taken care of. You do not want to buy a safe, only for a burglar to pick it up and carry it away! To have your safe securely installed in your property, you will need to speak to a well qualified carpenter/joiner.

What do you need to know about safe box installations?
Although buying a safe is a good way to improve your home security, there is only so much it can do if it is not securely fitted. With enough time a burglar can get into your safe, and so they may simply take it instead of trying to get it open or leaving it behind. An insurance company may also be unwilling to cover the contents of your safe unless it is properly bolted to a wall or floor.
Luckily, most domestic safes are designed to be fitted in this way. They usually contain pre-drilled holes which allow them to be bolted to another surface. However, this does not mean the installation will be easy. If something goes wrong and compromises the safe’s design, your insurance company may still refuse to cover it.
One of the most important things to think about when having a safe box installed is where exactly you are going to put it. The ideal spot will be well hidden, away from where a burglar in a hurry can spot it. However, you will need to make sure that the location of your safe does not include any utilities, as these can be very expensive to reroute. It will be more expensive to fit your safe in a solid wall and you will also want to avoid stud walls, as these will likely be too weak to keep your safe box secure. If you want to install the safe under your flooring, you will need to steer clear of rooms that contain underfloor heating.
If you are struggling to find an ideal place for your safe, you could always speak to a security specialist or carpenter before the fitting itself. They should be able to advise you on the most ideal and realistic places for your safe box to be installed.
