The largest safe supplier on the West Coast
Our first Gun Safe Showroom in Arleta, CA
Our first safe store opened in the San Fernando Valley in early 1978, where three generations of the Dean family have served the public ever since.
Over the years Dean Safe has gone from a modest 700 square foot lockshop, into the largest safe supplier on the West Coast with 3 showroom locations and over 15,000 square feet of store and warehouse. We often have inventory into the thousands, with knowledgeable safe experts and delivery personnel to guide you through every step of your safe buying and installation process.
Our mission is simple: We strive to help protect your family, home, and business from the unfortunate events of burglary, theft, fire, and gun violence. We urge you to make a lifetime investment in your peace of mind and take the extra step to preventing the headache or heartache associated with these unfortunate events. With our massive inventory, stellar customer service, and extensive safe knowledge, we can fit you with the best safe for your needs the very first time.
A safe should be chosen to protect not only guns
but with an eye toward accommodating jewelry,
important documents, china, family heirlooms and collectibles."

Question: "Do I really need a safe?"
We know that you might be thinking: "that'll never happen to me," and we truly hope that it never does. We don't mean to sound biased, but there's no better way to say it than: it's better safe than sorry.
Statistics have shown that pilferage, not burglary, from visitors in our homes is the biggest reason for losses from our home. Storing a handgun where a child can get it can lead to devastating results. Fires can destroy priceless family papers or heirlooms. The purchase of a safe can help prevent the devastating results of these situations.
The key to this success is the right inventory.
FBI statistics state that over 80 percent of all people who purchase a safe, buy the wrong type of safe. With over 32 different fire and security ratings, this should come as no surprise.
Most safe retailers will carry 1, 2, or 3 different ratings at the most, so all but a few customers will end up with the wrong type of safe for their needs.
Our solution has been to offer the customer a large selection of safes by stocking most of the ratings and sizes of a variety of safes from over 20 different manufacturers. That way we can fit the safe to the customer rather than trying to fit the customer to the safe.
Over the years we have looked at virtually every safe manufacturer in the market and have rigorously handpicked from each what we feel are "category killers" (the very best safes in each category). Our goal is to protect our customers' valuables with the best rating and quality at a competitive price.
We stock most everything from small UL-rated fireboxes up to 6000 pound high security jewelry safes. Most of our safes are UL-rated, meaning they have been rigorously tested against burglary and/or fire. We stock extra units in our warehouse, sometimes as many as 50 to 60 of the same safe, because they are our best sellers. Because of the volume of safes we sell, we are able to pick and choose category killers from the most prestigious safe manufacturers in the world. Our large sales volume and large orders of semi truck loads guarantee competitive prices. We have one entire room devoted exclusively to gun safes, ranging in size from 10 to 60 cubic feet. All of our safes are ready to go and can be fit accordingly to any accessories that'll make your storage needs even easier.
On November 11, 1998, we started our presence online with just three pages on our website. We now feature most of our safes on the internet and we ship across the United States. From our front line consultants to our behind the scenes associates, we consider our number one priority to be customer service. If we don't have the right safe for you and we know where you can get it, we'll get it for you or tell you where to get it. We do everything we can to satisfy our customers and offer quality merchandise with affordable prices.
Dean Safe has such a good reputation
that many safe manufacturers send them prototypes
of new models for input on pros and cons."

We understand that it takes a lot to run a business, and the last thing you'd need is a stand-up or burglary.

Whether you're just starting to build your dream home, or if you've been living in your house for years-- it's never too late to install a safe into your home for a little extra protection.

It's better safe than sorry to take the extra step in protecting your important documents, cash, or priceless family heirlooms.
Fully Customized Safes
If you don't see what you want in our showroom, we can build one for you. Maybe you just want something special for your home or office: custom paint, interiors, diamond studded hardware (that was a nice safe). We've designed and built thousands of custom safes, taking them from inspiration to installation in record time. We love doing it, and knowing this, many of our manufacturers who are unable to properly help celebrity clients, turn them over to us.
Discreet Delivery and Expert Installation
Take your safe home today. We can help load the safe you purchased into your vehicle. Or choose our local "white-glove" service and let us deliver your new safe right to your home. We have the equipment and expertise to move safes weighing up to 8,000 pounds anywhere in Southern California within five working days. For your protection and security, we do our own deliveries (no farming out to the lowest bidder). We deliver to many sensitive federal and state government agencies in California, so our drivers and delivery personal have had security checks by the FBI. Last but not least, no store name appears on our delivery trucks.
Due to the volume of safes we sell and ship, we get a discount on shipping through a trucking company. If you call us at (800) 827-7534 during business hours, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (be sure to include the model number of the safe you're looking to have shipped and your zip code), we will be happy to give you an estimate for shipping. All shipments by freight will be for curbside delivery.
