We were called to this Churchill Olympic 1 bolt under floor safe as it was locked and no keys were left by the previous owner. The lock was picked open and a new set of keys provided so the safe could be used by the new owner.
The key to this Churchill Banker under floor safe had been lost a long time ago but was still being used to store cash. All of a sudden the safe lid failed to open for the owner despite repeated hammer blows. Even knocking off the bolt control knob didn’t seem to help them so they called us. The initial photograph didn’t include the raised flooring surrounding it which meant the safe was far deeper down than was comfortable but we set to work on it. The first thing we noticed was that the lock had somehow been locked and secondly it was very loose meaning that extra security devices in the safe had likely been activated.
The first thing we did was to pick the lock open which would have been enough under normal circumstances to remove the lid but our suspicion of an activated relocker was confirmed. This was looking like a very long job and having to drill the lid in several places to release the spring loaded relockers. We got really lucky with it though and managed to get it open without any drilling or further damage than had already been caused before we arrived.
The owner couldn’t remember the combination to this Churchill safe in Greater Manchester. We were able to decode the combination and open the safe without any damage to it or its contents.

We were not the first company to attend this job but we were the only ones able to open it.

Here is a perfect example of a quality safe doing what it is supposed to do. Thieves had pounded on this Churchill safe lid with sledges, tried to dig it out and even attempted to cut through it with a disc cutter with no luck. All they had managed to do was make it more difficult for us to open when we were called to this job at a petrol station in Ormskirk.
The owners keys would no longer open the lock and the bashed lid without a handle was going to be a bit more difficult to open than a simple lost key job. Despite the extra work, we were able to get the lid off to find the contents still safely inside.
