Specialised Safe Moves
Moving a safe or fire-proof cabinet requires specialist equipment and highly trained operatives if it is to be completed without incident. Our dedicated team of expert Safe engineers will handle every aspect of the move from the initial planning and risk assessment, to secure reinstatement at the new location.
Your safe may need moving hundreds of miles or just a few feet across the office but however long or short the journey, our expert team will make sure the move is carried out efficiently and in accordance with the very latest Health & Safety regulations. We are of course fully insured to carry out this highly specialised service.
This picture shows how we reduce the risks in manual handling, by using one of our remote control stair robots. Although only suitable for some types of stairways, the robot does all the hard work and can carry your safe all the way to our Tail-lift removals vehicle.
If the stairs and lift aren’t suitable, then we use our 26t Lorry Mounted crane.
Its remote controlled crane arm, allows our operator precision movement. In the image below we are lifting a safe from a first floor office, through a window, safely onto our vehicle using the mentioned lorry mounted crane.
Our surveyor will attend site looking for information among the following:
- Safe type, manufacturer and model
- Does the safe contain asbestos? (many do)
- Access and Egress
- Will the safe go through the doorways?
- Are there are steps, stairs etc?
- Is there a lift and what is it weight capacity?
- Site Protection e.g covers for tiled or wooden floors
- Is the safe bolted? Does it need bolting?
- The best time to move the safe – is an after-hours service best suited to create a sterile working area?
