BDB Lock and Safe are specialist safe removal experts. We relocate safes and vaults regardless of their type, size, weight or location. We’re often called in for a safe relocation on behalf of large companies who simply don’t have our expertise or experience. A recent example of this was the removal an SMP Safe weighing in at a rather impressive, but not unusual, 2000 KG. The safe was removed from the 7th floor via the window of our customer’s city centre building – no mean feat!

We specialise in bespoke design and installation of vaults and strongrooms. Replacing a vault or strongroom can be very costly though, so repair over replacement is more popular!

You’ve just bought your brand new safe online, you’re happy with the price, and it was delivered on time.
