This Fort Knox safe in Chorley, Lancashire had been attacked prior to us attending. None of the visible holes in the lid were made by us. The history is unclear as it was found by the new owners of the house who were curious as to what was inside. Despite the damage we were able to open the lid for the client.

We were called to a car dealership in Stockport as the key would no longer open this Churchill under floor safe. The Churchill Euro Emerald is a high security Grade 3 safe with a cash rating of £35,000 and a valuables rating of £350,000. We were not the first company to attend this job but we were the only ones able to open it. Despite a lack of maintenance making things very tricky we were able to get it open without any damage to the safe.

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.

Given the extent of the damage we advised a replacement safe was required in this instance but it had more than paid for itself keeping the bad guys out.
