We were called to a hotel chain in Glossop, Derbyshire as the key was stuck in this Dudley Harlech safe. We found that the boltwork had worked itself loose and required some minor repairs. This sort of job highlights that safes require regular servicing just like anything else mechanical. You wouldn’t dream of of running your car without regular maintenance and yet most people notice that something is not quite right with their safe but leave it until it finally fails before getting it seen to. This usually coincides with some important event that requires immediate access to the safe and often the replacement of parts that would not have broken if tended to sooner. The proverb ‘A stitch in time saves nine’ is very much true, if you notice a problem with your safe then call us out sooner rather than later.
