Whether you’ve forgotten your combination or your safe has malfunctioned, Brisbane Safes are equipped with the knowledge and tools to professionally open and repair your safe. Whenever possible, depending on the type of safe and nature the call it’s quite possible that we can open your safe without ever reaching for a drill.

Safe servicing is something that is often overlooked by the end user. Day in and day out people will dial open their safe, never thinking about the precision mechanism inside the safe that allows the safe to be locked and unlocked. Sometimes a safe will give you warnings about the impending doom. Many times, however, there will be no warning whatsoever.

Depending on the frequency of its use, a safe should be “serviced” every one or two years by Brisbane Safes. Servicing includes the following:

  • Completely disassemble the combination lock.
  • Clean, adjust, and examine all parts.
  • Lubricate only the parts that require lubrication
  • Check any security relocker bolts. Adjust if necessary.
  • Check locking bolts for free movement.


If you begin to have trouble opening your safe, you should have it checked out right away by Brisbane Safes. Waiting until it won’t open before you call us can be a costly mistake. Once you are faced with a lock-out it can often cost several hundred dollars just to get the safe open (often requiring drilling), before repairs can even be made. Plus not only do you have to repair the original problem, now you may also need to repair the drilled opening.


Some safes have mechanical combination locks that are user changeable. Others are definitely best left to the professional! While the actual procedures may differ from one manufacturer to another, the basic idea is the same.


Brisbane Safes can install digital combination locks on most modern safes. Some advantages of digital combination locks are:

  • The ability to be easily changed at a moments notice by the end user
  • The ability to give separate combinations to different employees
  • The ability to automatically lock out certain users during pre-determined times.
  • The ability to tell who opened the safe, and when they opened it through the use of audit trails


Safes really don’t provide much protection if someone can simply pick it up and carry it out the door. To prevent this, small to medium sized safes should be bolted down to the floor or wall. Call Brisbane Safes for advice at the right price.


Brisbane Safes can arrange to deliver, install, collect or move your safe anywhere in Australia or internationally.
