Efficient safe removals & relocationsWhat we can do & where we can help you

For several years, Trident Safes has been specified to undertake all manner of industrial and residential safe removal or relocation projects, many of which involve heavy objects in awkward, hard-to-reach locations such as basements and rooms several storeys high.

Trident Safes works closely with firms in London’s finance sector, as well as some of the UK’s biggest retailers to plan and undertake the removal of inefficient safes or the transportation of safes of all Eurogrades to more suitable on-site locations, which often weigh several tonnes.

It’s important to choose a specialist in safe logistics to remove or relocate your safe. Safes must be handled with care to allow them to be recycled for operation elsewhere. Before any safe removal or relocation project, our experienced team will undertake thorough pre-site surveys to ascertain whether proposed new locations for safes can bear their weight before the hard work begins.

For businesses and organisations planning on moving commercial premises altogether, you may be interested in our dismantling services. Most state-of-the-art vaults are designed to be taken apart, if necessary.



Our in-house safe removal and relocation experts are entrusted by our valued clients to provide insurance-approved removals and installations for guaranteed security and peace of mind, whenever you need it. Not only does our company have access to market leading machinery and equipment to improve the accessibility and manoeuvrability of safes, our engineers are qualified to use them to the best of their ability. Our team is professionally trained in manual handling, safe working at heights and emergency first aid.

Our team is also adept at overseeing safe removals and relocations in buildings where stairwells and lifts are involved. We can provide adequate protection for lift interiors and staircases to minimise the impact of moving safes up and down stairs and lift shafts. Our crane lorries, controlled by our qualified crane operators, come into their own when lifts and staircases aren’t a viable option in buildings.


With more than 45 years of experience in the safe and vault logistics industry, we are well-versed in gathering information on projects via phone or email, but there are some instances where safes need to be viewed in-situ to plan for all eventualities. That’s why we offer free site visits for all bespoke quotations, allowing our experts to discuss the finer details of your safe removal or relocation and suggest alternative options that you may not have considered.

For unwanted or unused safes, Trident Safes takes all available steps to try and keep removed safes intact and in a reusable condition. That’s because we specialise in the refurbishment of used safes, supplying and installing great-value, high-quality reconditioned safes of all Eurogrades for a fraction of the price of brand-new models.

We also remove heavy and difficult objects, not just safes. Take a look at our Trident Specialist Transport page to see how we can help you.


How much does it cost to remove a safe UK?

The price can vary greatly depending on the size of the safe and the difficulty of the job however a starting price would be £250.

How do you get rid of a big safe?

Always call a safe moving expert. Removing big safes can be very dangerous if you do not know what you are doing. Safes also need to be disposed of in a responsible way Scrap yards will not usually accept safes as scrap because they are mainly made up of concrete.

Can I move my safe?

The make and model of your safe will determine how big or heavy it is. Some safes are not necessarily heavy and can be moved by the owner.

How heavy should a safe be?

Safe weight is determined by the way it is made. The higher the grade of the safe, generally the more robust it will be therefore made from heavier materials with thicker walls and doors.

Where is the best place to put a safe in your house?

It’s best to position your safe somewhere relatively hidden and not on show. Ideally, the safe should be fixed to a concrete floor however we are also able to fix to wooden floors and floors with underfloor heating.

Are old safes better than new ones?

No, all safes have their place on the AIS insurers list. Two safes of the same grade provide the same amount of cover, although new safes tend to be available in more sizes and are usually much lighter in construction. Older safes are much heavier in construction and harder to move.

How do you hide your home safe?

Ideally, your safe should be hidden from sight. In a garage, under stairs cupboard, or in wardrobes etc…
