Seems like a very well constructed safe. My only wish is that it had a couple of areas that allowed anchoring of the safe to a wall. two lags through the back wall of the safe into blocking in the wall would make the safe much more stable and anti-theft. As it is know, only floor anchors can be used and has too much movement when bolted down.
Thank you for your purchase, and happy to hear you are overall satisfied. The safe does not offer holes on the back of the safe to mount to the wall, as that would ruin the fire rating of the safe. No gun safes with a fire rating will have bolt down holes anywhere but the bottom of the safe. Hopefully this explanation helps! Thanks again!
Added a doomsday lock and fitted out with shelves internally.
The Safe arrived roughly when Dean said it would give or take a week. Had a little damage to the box and paint on one side with minor scratching. This was ok, if it were the front, then that may have been a different story. Was able to move it by myself using a hand truck. This is heavy and you will need a heavy duty hand truck. You will also need to have done this type of thing before so you can judge your ability to move it by yourself otherwise you will need at least two people. Found a little dolly at Lowes ($50) was able to lay the safe on it’s back on top of the dolly and then was able to negotiate carpet and other small house obstacles to get the safe to it’s installation place. Safe was relatively easy to bolt down to my concrete floor with supplied hardware.
Safe quality is incredible! Absolutely recommend this safe.
Internal finish is really nice. Paintwork outside is unusual but excellently done.
Bought this safe on the Dean Safe site, what to expect from them is well documented in the site literature and on YouTube. Did not hear from the customer service even when I emailed. I called and they were very helpful. Everything went as expected with safe arriving on time give or take. Shipping was as expected, with the shipping company contacting me as advised they would. In fact this was the first I knew the safe had come into stock. I didn’t hear anything from Dean and this is probably what to expect as nothing was going wrong with my order so i guess in my case “no news was good news” transporter even backed the delivery almost up to my front door! Which was definitely something I had not expected.
Don’t have any fears, if you want this safe, get it. My experience was “quiet” (don’t panic if you don’t hear anything, call them they will be very helpful) but otherwise easy and excellent.
The transporter gave plenty of notice so you can organize to be there upon delivery.
Can’t really fault the experience.
The safe is a great looking safe, for the amount of guns it’s just the perfect size and fits perfect where I wanted it. The bolting down can be a bit tricky for one person because of the weight but that’s all, the feet it stands on allows me to store a case out of the way, however there is plenty of space inside for my needs and the receptive and charging unit inside is a great feature. All in all I’m really happy with it.
Beautiful Quality Safe!
