It may seem like a natural fit for gun stores to display and sell gun safes. But just like we don’t know enough about guns to provide proper advice and service for weapons, gun stores don’t have the appropriate knowledge to provide advice and service for safes. To them, safes are a sideline, a way to boost sales and profits. At Hoogerhyde Safe, safes are our business — you can tell by the name, right? We know more about safes because we work on them every day, just like a gun store works on guns every day.
We have the tools, training and years of experience to do any service work that might be required after the purchase. It is common for customers to tell us “I bought my safe from the gun shop. Now that I have problems with it they say they can’t repair safes.” When you are out buying a new rifle and you are tempted to buy a new gun safe at the same store, ask this question: “If the lock fails and the safe cannot be opened, what specifically can YOU do to fix it?” If they do not have the ability to open it themselves that is the wrong place to buy a safe.
