Just in time for Christmas

Come see our most popular wall safes this weekend at the Eastman Gun Show. A wall safe IS quick access AND excellent child-proofing  for  handgun owners.  Dec., 3&4 @ Cobb County Civic Ctr, 548 S. Marietta Pkwy, Marietta, Ga. Concealment clocks, gun magnets, bedside buddy's...all in stock!!  Look for us under the blue "Gun Safes" sign and operate the portrait of "Dogs Playin' Cards" cleverly concealling our best selling model!

Easy Target?

Don't be an easy target. Crime reports indicate that the common burglar enters during daylight hours and stays 9 minutes! In and out in 540 seconds with anything they can find and easily carry; Flat screen TV, computer, stereo/speakers/MP3's are most certainly goners. Even easier to carry & you made it easy to find are:  jewelry left on the dresser, cash in a sock drawer, keys on a hook in the kitchen, prescriptions in the medicine cabinet, passwords notebook next to where the computer used  to be... C'mon people- Don't be an easy target:

Gas Prices?

Your guess is as good as mine... How much is gas next week?  What about the following week? When you're shipping freight, the question is palpable; your customer is absorbing the brunt - how much is too much? We now offer shipped products that include shipping to anywhere in the continental United States- FREE (or rather shipping included...nothing's free.)

It's a smoke screen, no pun intended

There’s no such thing as fire proof! Fire resistance ratings are a false sense of security perpetrated by the safe industry to lull you into their products under the ruse that the contents of your safe will be guaranteed against loss. Trying to find, get, or even decipher the warranties of major manufacturers is mind-boggling; Manufacturers insist that all pertinent warranty information is included with your new safe purchase, distributors defer to manufacturers, authorized dealers seldom have anything in writing. Let me condense for you: Independent laboratories require donated products to independently test the durability of said products in laboratory environments. However, with no governing body to regulate the conclusions; fanciful calculations by the marketing professional’s simply fodder for the delusion that there is compensation for your lost valuables. An under-written insurance policy IS the only recompense as to the value of your lost possessions. Most safe companies will replace the safe which was damaged/lost, with many varied stipulations; and you must prove it: homeowner’s insurance statement of coverage, police report, etc… (One company offers their in-house insurance group; certain restrictions apply and must be renewed regularly; sure sounds like an insurance policy!) A major manufacturer offers this tidbit at the bottom of their limited lifetime warranty-
 
IMPORTANT: This offer specifically excludes the contents of the safe. It also excludes damage to the safe due to acts of God, terrorism and war, and applies only to home/residential, non-commercial use of the safe.
 
For my purposes, I investigated wall safe, gun safe, personal safe manufacturers and distributors. There has not been a fire resistance study done on any modern, non-insulated wall safe; nor is there a replacement clause for fire or theft. There are 380,000 residential fires every year, and there are 4,000,000 reported burglaries; you do the math. After interviewing dozens of firefighters, I have concluded that the average residential fire burns at around 1000 degrees and last for about an hour. The honest vagueness is because “no two fires are the same”. I can appreciate that because “they can’t steal what they can’t find”…Let’s just stick to the facts

Home Security while you're away

 "Avoiding the Summertime Burglary Blues" by getting a home security system. WalletPop, an AOL Emag has an article with statistics by the Better Business Bureau that claims homes w/o a security system are 3 times more likely to have a break-in while you're away on vacation and that homes w/ a security system, on average, have losses of $400 less than comparable homes. That may all be well and good; however in this economy, EVERYBODY is susceptible to burglary. Therefore the best defense is that the crooks can't locate stuff to steal- like in a secured wall safe hidden for added protection. While the average burglary is in daylight hours and lasts only 9 minutes, the thieves know how much time they have to to grab your stuff and get away before security arrives; so you'll want to make it as difficult as possible to find your valuables and even harder to get at them. The added protection of a wall safe: They can't steal what they can't find.

Dangerous Liasons

I got scolded yesterday for showing up on time, having a complete line of quality products, in-stock, reasonably priced, and ready to install. She wanted a discount; I acquiesced: then I up-sold her to a nice wall safe comparable to her home from the low-cost model she was familiar with.  She wasn't prepared for me to install the model she picked out of the mobile showroom in her driveway, she balked and chided "you should tell people  'same day service' "- Like that was a bad thing!! Although I won't do it; I kinda understand why there are so many service fees and hidden costs...
