Don’t Buy a “FAKE SAFE”

We have many phone calls and customers dropping by our three different showrooms asking us about cheap safes that they see at a big box store or on the internet.  They ask why those safes are so much cheaper than the ones we carry.  I explain that most of the safes they are looking at are “FAKE SAFES” .  Why do I call them “FAKE SAFES”?  Well because they are made of thin metal with weak spot welds and little to no fire protection.  Even though they are called safes , nothing could be farther from the truth.  Ask your self if you want to store your guns , important items and valuables in a “FAKE SAFE”?  Come by our showroom and let us show you what a REAL SAFE looks like and don’t trust the security of your valuables to a cheap “FAKE SAFE”.

You Need a Safe – Now !

In the past 23 years that The Safe House has been selling Safes & Vaults we have never seen the uncertainty that exist in our country as it does today.  With illegal immigration, the Federal Government bring in Islamic immigrates and the chance of terrorism growing everyday.  Our political parties fighting each other for control of the country. The Supreme Court on the verge of ruling to restrict your 2nd amendment rights.  Local city and state governments imposing laws that limit your freedom to defend yourself and your family. Federal laws that allow search and confiscation of safe deposit box contents and bank accounts, the daily increase of the federal deficit to over 18 TRILLION dollars and the impending collapse of our monetary system.  Deep breath . . . . . . . .AND the list goes on and on.

Now more than ever,

You Need a Safe …… NOW !

Vault Doors & Panic Rooms from The Safe House

Our Vault Door and Panic Room business has been booming this past year and we wanted to share a few things with you concerning the things to consider when purchasing a Vault Door or Security Door.

1st:  Just like a Home Safe or Gun Safe ,Pick a door to fit your needs, when choosing a Vault Door there are many things to consider,  Size of the door, Metal Thickness , number of Locking Bolts and their Size , In Swing or Out Swing .  ( In Swing is better on a Storm Shelter or Panic Room )  What Brand to choose.  Will I need my door installed or can I do it myself?

Fort Knox VD Blue      FK IS VD Inside

2nd : Pick a brand that you know is reputable and will stand behind their warranty if needed.  Be wary of online companies that have statements on their websites that seem to be to good to be true, because they usually are.

3rd:  When designing your safe room pick a door before you get to the building phase of your project , most Vault Doors and Security Doors have different rough opening requirements and you need to make your door opening to fit the brand you choose, nothing is worse ( well maybe somethings ) than having the wrong rough opening for you door and it not fitting correctly or not at all.

4th: Who can install my door?  The Safe House offers professional Vault Door Installation and can help you with a smooth and easy installation of your Vault Door.

5th:  Call or Drop by The Safe House , for over 23 years we have been helping our customers in selecting the correct Vault Door to fit their needs and budget . We would be happy to answer YOUR questions or concerns you have in selecting the correct door.

Free Delivery is not Free ! We explain why

FREE DELIVERY ……  That’s a term that is quoted by many of the  online sites that sell safes BUT If you actually look at the prices you are quoted you will notice that the prices are elevated to cover the cost of free shipping.  So why should you pay a higher price to help pay for someone else’s Free Shipping?  We have asked the same question for a long time and The Safe House likes to be upfront and honest about the cost associated with your safe purchase.

Purchasing a safe online is a daunting task , which security level do you need , how much fire rating is enough? , what size safe do you need ? what is a TL rating safe?  why is it called a gun safe vs a home safe?  and the list goes on and on.  In the past 23 years we have heard a lot of questions from about what safe to choose. We are happy to answer questions and help you make the right decision when it comes to choosing a safe that fits your needs and I’ m confident that we have an answer for just about any need you have in securing your valuables and items.

Shipping a larger safe is not as simple as putting it in a box and a courier picks it up and drops it off on your door step.  Through the years we have delivered and shipped 1000’s of safes and freight damage is an issue that we deal with on a regular basis.  We offer two levels of shipping , first is our standard shipping and the other system is our upgraded level II shipping , it protects your safe purchase even more and helps your safe arrives in factory new condition.  This cost more for our Level II shipping  but it eliminates most freight damage.
