How to PREP a gun safe or gun vault before delivery.

 

Below are the steps necessary to prep a safe for either in-home delivery or for common carrier curbside shipment/deliveries. Before a safe leaves your facility...
  1. Check for any visible damage(s) to the outer cardboard box.
  2. Remove the outer cardboard box while carefully noting damage(s) points to the outer carton and inspect the safe carefully for any visible damage to those respective areas.
  3. Inspect the entire outer painted surface for any paint flaws that may be visible. 
  4. Check the safe for proper operation - Unlock/lock and retract/throw safe bolts 4 times.  After each operation open safe door to its limit. Pay special attention to the gear-drive locking mechanism to be sure that all bolts extend and retract smoothly.
  5. Check customer's invoice and customer's purchase order sheet thoroughly to confirm model number, painted finish, and size.
  6. Confirm that the interior shelf configuration is correct.
  7. Confirm all standard features have been installed and are operating properly.
  8. Confirm that the anchor bolts are placed within the safe.
  9. The outer body of the safe must be cleaned of any dust that has accumulated.
  10. The inner door panel must be removed and the inside of the door must be inspected and re-vacuumed to remove any dust or metal burrs that may have been accidentally left behind during manufacturing. 
  11. Re-install inner safe door panel then re-check the safe for proper operation - Unlock/lock and retract/throw safe bolts 2 additional times.  After each operation open safe door to its limit, then close safe door. Pay special attention to the gear-drive locking mechanism to be sure that all bolts extend and retract smoothly.
  12. Pre-shipping photos must be taken to show the serial number and the condition of the safe's interior and exterior before the safe is re-wrapped and leaves the facility. Print and attach photos to shipping documents.
  13. The shipping document must be signed by the person doing the prepping as well as shipping manager prior to re-wrapping.
  14. After the safe has been re-packed into the original factory packaging and made ready for shipping/delivery the shipping documents must be signed again by the person doing the prepping as well as shipping manager.
  15. The shipping manager will assess whether additional packaging should be applied to further protect the safe, if necessary, based on special customer requirements prior to loading into the delivery truck.
