Locksmithing/vanguard vs 200 combo change


hi, my father recently passed and left a vanguard vs 200 in our basement  empty and unlocked but no one knows the combination. how do i go about getting the combination and possibly changing it to make the safe usable?

A few different safe manufacuters used the Vanguard name.

Any chance you could post a pic?

If it is a light duty safe, you may be able to lift the door off of the hinge pins and carry it into a lock/ safe shop.

They can service the lock, bolts etc and set a new comb for a minimal fee.
