Playing it safe....

What a rowdy bunch you guys are!

First off, the safe is 700+ pounds, I cant just drive it home.

It is a circle dial combo lock, the instructions are in the manual, with a key on the dial. The driver could look at this, make a copy of the key too. I do not think it would be out of line to ask for this guys name/address. Just in case kind of thing. I did not buy this at a home depot or wally Mart. You think I am paranoid asking for the guys name/address? I am not asking for a fingerprint and blood sample. This guy and his helper will move a safe into my house, have access to the combo and key and know where it is going in my house. If none of you would be worried about this if you were buying a safe then you are way to trusting of strangers. I guess some of you are too quick to make rude comments before thinking about my situation. Am I wealthy, nope....Just want to lock up a few guns and 2 wedding rings and tax return papers. I seen and heard of too many break-ins and the PITA that follows a break-in. My uncle's home was broken into, TV, Jewelry, coin collection----all gone, in broad daylight. My uncle lives 20 miles from me. You really start thinking about burglary after you know someone that has experienced it.

Your observation is correct. There must be an attraction for tractors amongst the few sour, negative, dyspeptic churls who lurk around this board. If you ask a reasonable question many, but certainly not most, will misinterpret your question and find a way to be insulting. Maybe its a hobby for these boys but personally it creates a good reason not to post here.

I don't know why you bothered to ask on here. Nobody was making rude comments or insulting you. They were just telling you how it is. YES, you are being overly paranoid! Maybe you would be better to get a good alarm system? You bought a heavy safe from a place that specializes in them.

If you really think the guys delivering it 30 miles are going to come back, hope no ones home, go directly to the safe to steal what they don't even know is in it, then you've got bigger problems than being paranoid. Petty thieves want to get in quick and be gone even quicker. If someone broke into your house and got the safe open, it wouldn't take a rocket scientist to suspect the guys delivering it. I don't think a 700 lb safe would be the easiest thing to break into by a petty thief. Have the safe delivered and don't worry about it.

I bought a gun safe about that size years ago from a gun shop. I was given the keys and combo when I paid for it. It was locked when the delivery guys delivered it so they never saw combo or keys. On your safe see if you can change the combo if you think somebody may know it.

There's an old saying; The guy that always worries about some steeling from him is the guy to watch.

You have that a little bit wrong. There are people out there that have work hard all of their life for what they have and don't some dumb azz to steal it to surport their habits.
