ABOUT US

Best Home Safes has a wealth of experience. Our core team includes a retired senior police officer. Members of the team have been vetted both by HM Government and overseas government due to the nature of some of our work.

Some background information as to why we set up Best Home Safes.

WE WERE APPROACHED BY LEADING INSURERS

Best Home Safes was formed in part due to the request of leading insurers to examine how and why their client’s safes were being stolen.

We visited twenty-five victims that had had safes stolen, all of whom had safes that had been fitted by a selection of safe installers.

A CATALOGUE OF CORRUPTION

Unfortunately, we discovered that the offending criminals had been tipped off by either:

  • Someone who had legitimate access to the property such as house keepers, cleaners and workpeople etc
  • Corrupt jewellers and sellers of watches
  • Corrupt safe installers.

POOR INSTALLATION MAKES IT EASY TO STEAL

Unbelievably, we discovered that all, except for one, had been bolted straight onto a wooden base! Under tests, we determined that these safes can be removed within a minute from a wooden base.

In response to this, we invented a device that hugely reduces the chances of this happening, when bolted into wood.

SECRECY AND DISCRETION ARE THE REAL “KEYS” TO YOUR SAFE

Integrityconfidentiality and excellence underpin the bespoke security solutions and personal service that we offer.. These facets of our service are what insurers and our discerning clients, consider to be our unique selling points (USP).

The work conducted throughout the group has led to the development of a team of which we are very justifiably proud:

  • Former senior fraud and police investigators
  • Lloyd’s of London insurance security specialists
  • Vetted safe installers and engineers – who, for maximum security, operate on our unique confidential ‘need to know’ basis
  • Police-vetted installers of alarms, CCTV & electronic security equipment
  • Vehicle anti-theft tracking authorised installers
  • Specialists in family protection & identifying risk to families homes and businesses
  • Regular ambassadors to insurance providers
  • Mediation and conflict resolution experts
  • Problem solving

INVITED TO ESTABLISH A “SAFE” BUSINESS

Due to our comprehensive report into the rise in crime of stolen safes, we were requested to consult on safe security by leading high net worth insurers and underwriters. They subsequently suggested that we should establish a secure, safe advisory, sales, and installation business, hence the formation of Best Home Safes.

Utilising the extensive experience and knowledge of the team, we interviewed many prospective safe engineers and after significant due diligence we selected two safe engineers. As testimony to our thorough process, they have been with us for many years and are completely trustworthy, discreet with integrity and an all encompassing customer focused attitude.

The next step was to investigate how we can reduce the chances of safes being removed when bolted into wood, such as a wooden floor or plinth.

With this in mind, our safe experts designed a security base plate that sits under the wood, which is constructed in metal. The base plate significantly strengthens the security fixing of the safe itself, providing much greater and enhanced security. We supply this base plate at cost (no profit) option, because our sole aim is to protect the interests of both clients and insurers.

Having been vetted by HM Government to a high level, our clients quickly see that integrity and confidentiality are watchwords throughout the Gold Command Group, and this is equally applicable to Best Home Safes.

OUR UNIQUE CONFIDENTIALITY SERVICE

Members of our core team have been vetted by HM Government, plus and an overseas Government, and we have also been also been DBS checked.  We have expert engineers working with us to install all our safes in the UK, who have worked with us since retirement from the Police, some years ago.

Despite the significant trust we have in our engineers, we work as we did in the police “on a need to know basis”. Your personal details are only known to us and not shared with our engineers or the safe manufacturer.  Our engineers get your address but not your name or contact details.  We make all the installation arrangements. This is another level of security we build in to ensure your interests.

Our success is in part due to the installer’s professionalism, customer service level and their can-do attitude. The excellent feed-back we receive from clients has been inspirational.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I MOVE HOME? CAN I TAKE THE SAFE WITH ME?

Purchasing a good safe is an investment in your security.  In most cases we can remove the safe and transport and install at your new address. There is a charge for this.
