Accounting For Size & Weight of Safes
The big difficulty with moving a safe is accounting for the weight and the size. Even the smallest ones can be rather heavy to ensure they provide the right level of security for the valuables stored inside them. As the size increases or the level of protection typically so too does the weight. In each case removing safes presents numerous challenges.
When manual safe removals are not possible, either because of the size and weight or the location, the right equipment needs to be used to support the item and move it safely. The lifting equipment and all components must be up to standard to maximise safety. Everything must be checked carefully prior to use, ensuring there is no wear that could become a hazard. We take care to do just that whenever we provide a service.
If the safe needs to be removed via a window it is absolutely crucial that the frame, the panes, and the wall around the opening are not damaged. To help with the latter we use ramps so the safe can slide safely out of the building when it is hoisted.
At TFM Removals we have the experience to move every kind of safe effectively. We have access to the lifting equipment as well as removal vehicles to relocate the safes once they are free from the property.
Environment-Friendly Safe Disposal
One of the main things that makes us such a well-established safe disposal expert is we know the impact disposing of them incorrectly can have on the environment.
The materials used in safe construction are designed to be very durable, meaning they will take a very long time to break down in nature, if they even degrade at all. As a result a formal disposal is better than simply dumping safes in landfill.
Surprisingly there may be a good amount of value to be found in old safes, even those that are no longer in service or too damaged to be restored. The metals used in their construction can generally be recycled rather than thrown away. Some safes are lined with concrete, giving them weight and offering protection against fire. This material can also be reused rather than wasted.
Working with TFM when disposing of an old safe ensures as little parts go to waste as possible, so you can environmental peace of mind.
