Although a brand-new safe will allow your business premises or home to benefit from state-of-the-art security technology, this comes with a hefty price tag. That’s why many of our customers prefer to buy one of our reconditioned safes that are much better value and don’t scrimp on their security features either. In many ways, if you want to get the best return on a safe investment, reconditioned models of all Eurogrades can do the same job as a brand-new model without the brand-new price.

As part of our end-to-end customer service, at Trident Safes we offer free site surveys to help specify the most suitable reconditioned safe for your workplace or home. We don’t just supply and deliver second-hand safes either. Our fleet of vehicles and equipment make it easy for our experienced in-house installers to fit your fully reconditioned safe in the most efficient and professional manner.

Frequently asked questions

Are old safes better than new ones?

Reconditioned safes offer several advantages over newer ones. Older safes are built to last and offer a variety of unique design features that aren’t always found in newer models. Once refurbished, they come with a warranty and certification that allows you to return them free of charge within a year. They can also offer as much security as newer models at a much lower cost overall.

How much should you spend on a safe?

When working out how much you are willing to spend on a safe, you should consider several factors. First, what items are you trying to secure? All safes have a Eurograde rating based on the value of the items being stored. Second, consider the type of safe you need: is it a stand-alone safe, installed underfloor, designed for cash deposits, or something else? Third, consider your budget; how much are you willing to spend to keep your valuables safe? All these factors will help you determine what price you should pay for a safe.

Benefits of Second-Hand Safes

  • Most safes, especially older ones, are built to last for as long as possible. If the previous owners maintained their safe well and kept its safety measures in place, it will operate just as well as the latest ones. This means you can utilise these safes for any function that requires security.
  • When purchasing a new safe, you will almost certainly spend a high price for it. However, used safes provide the same level of security as modern versions at a far lower cost.
  • Safes frequently have a variety of distinctive features, some of which are proprietary to a single model. If that model is no longer manufactured, purchasing a second-hand safe may be your only alternative for obtaining the security features or design that you desire.
  • A one-year guarantee is provided on used safes. They are completely certified and have warranties. If something happens to the safe within this time, you can return it for free.
  • Many earlier safe models were heavier in design than contemporary ones are. As such, thieves are far less likely to be able to remove the safe from your premises. These older, heavier versions, therefore, give an extra level of theft deterrence.

What is a reconditioned safe?

A refurbished or reconditioned safe is a previously used safe that has been fully serviced and tested by professional safe engineers, new locks should be fitted, and all paintwork should be rubbed down, cleaned and a fresh coat of paint applied. This will bring the safe up to an almost brand new standard.

How does a refurbished safe differ from a new safe?

A refurbished safe will be a much more cost-effective option. It will also generally be slightly heavier in construction, preventing thieves from being able to move it easily.

Are refurbished safes just as secure as new safes?

Refurbished safes are just as secure as brand-new safes. All Eurograde safes are cash rated and listed on the AIS list (Association of Insurance Surveyors). The safe you choose will be sufficient to store the value of your items based on its Eurograde. All safes on the list have gone through the same tests whether brand-new or reconditioned older models.

What is the process for refurbishing a safe?

First of all, the safe will be fully serviced by a safe engineer. Any parts that are worn or not working as they should, will be repaired or replaced. New locks will be fitted as per the customers requirements, this could be with key locks, digital or manual combination locks. The safe will then be stripped down of its handles, escutcheons and any other external decorative parts, as it is taken into the spray shop to be fully sanded down and cleaned before being completely repainted with a hard wearing primer based paint.
