Milner Safe - Found In New Home - Rusted Shut
When the owners moved in to their new home, they found this Milners floor safe, fitted in to a wall in their cellar. As they were not able to open it, they called safecracker. We attended and quickly establish that the lock was already in the open position. From looking at the condition of the wall surrounding the safe and listening to the door as we tapped around it with a hammer, we were able to work out the reason that the safe would not open. We then used a safecrackers guarded technique to open the door. Once open we confirmed that the damp from the walls had caused the lockout, and because of the amount of rust there was, it had also rendered the safe as an uneconomical repair. If you have a safe that needs opening call safecracker. Remember a lock may not be the only reason your safe will not open.
