We have been in the "reconditioned" safe business since 1904.  Back then it was called the "used" safe business, but since we rarely sell used safes "as is", we call them by a more appropriate name.  

The only products we will resell are ones that are in good working condition and that once they are reconditioned, can be warrantied and relied upon for a lifetime of use.  Damaged parts are repaired or replaced.  Locks, if not operating successfully, are repaired or replaced.  Products are refinished (unless the finish of the used product, when received, is in excellent condition).  Sometimes it's difficult to tell if one of these products is reconditioned or new! 

How do we obtain used equipment?  We come across equipment in a variety of methods.  Usually, these products come from companies that are moving, expanding, upgrading, closing, etc.  We find these products from all corners of the USA and sometimes overseas.  The majority are products that were standard models produced by manufacturers throughout the world, yet we do come across many unique customized models as well.  

We usually have from 300-500 used products in stock. We have a full shop and staff prepared to repair, recondition, modify and refinish these products, so if the product you select needs to be outfitted with a custom locking system or interior, we can make it happen.  

There's Nothing We Can't Do.  To give you an idea of what we have done in the past, we've modified a double door fire protection safe and made it into a double door vault door.  We've reduced the depth of a large steel safe so it could fit through a narrow doorway.  We've outfitted a large safe with multiple locking compartments and drawers.  We've even taken a safe with a right swing door and modified it to swing to the left.  

Burglary Protection Safes and Vault Doors.  The burglary protection equipment we resell are those that, once reconditioned, are equal to (or stronger than) the security level to which they were manufactured  We will not resell a burglarized safe where the barrier material has been removed, thereby compromising the security level.  (It is important to note that we occasionally repair and resell safes that were attacked where there is only external cosmetic damage...think of an automobile that has damaged fender or broken light.) 

Reconditioned Fire Protection Safes and Insulated Files. People sometimes ask us if one of these products ever went through a fire.  The answer is no.  We would never resell a fire protection product that went through a fire as it would no longer qualify as such a product.  We would never purchase such a product in the first place.

Warranty.  Unless otherwise noted, all reconditioned equipment comes with a one year mechanical warranty as it pertains to product defects.  Locks in excellent working condition come with a 90-day warranty.  (If a lock is replaced at our discretion with a new lock the warranty is then extended for one year.We reserve the right to repair or replace anything found to be defective or non-operational.

How We Operate  It is important to note that the insurance industry looks to us to provide accurate information to them about the products we promote to their clients.  We therefore have chosen to always take "the high road" and do the right thing for our customers.

  • We will not recondition a used safe and sell it as new.  It is illegal to do so.
  • We will not put a UL label on a safe that is not UL listed (fyi, once a label is removed from a non-compliant product, the label is destroyed or becomes part of our memorabilia.)
  • If we obtain a used UL listed product that was taken off the market since it was not manufactured according to UL specifications, we will remove the UL label and downgrade the product and then resell it at its realistic security level.
  • We will not misrepresent the security level of a product that does not have a UL or other certification.  As a matter of fact, we will clarify the security level of such products to the best of our ability.

At Empire, you can buy with full confidence that you will get exactly what you asked for.  We appreciate the opportunity to guide our clients to the appropriate product(s) for their use, and give them enough information to help them make a responsible decision.   Whether you purchase new or reconditioned, you can be sure you'll get what you pay for.
