Saw your reply on this subject. Need a safe tech in Anaheim CA to open one. Do you have a reco? Thx in advance.


ANSWER: Hi Brent,

I've got a couple really good safe tech referrals for you.   They both cover the entire LA area, so you can contact one or all to discuss it with them.    They might also have some referrals for you.

Professional Safe Cracking
760-805-2958          Todd Kerm
Temecula, CA 92590

Stratton Safes
909-963-0801          Neil Stratton
240 Maple Ave Ste G
Beaumont, CA  92223

D. Diederich's Security, Inc.
909-908-1038          Dave Diederich

Todd is pretty much strictly mobile while Neil actually has a brick & mortar store,  I'm pretty sure that Dave is also strictly mobile.   Any of them should be able to help you out.

Hope this helps out.

Anyone in the 714-area code?


Hi Brent,

Give me your zip code.

due to cell phones / we don't track companies by their "area code".    Lots of companies are mobile so area codes don't help.

The three guys I gave you cover the entire area, and they are probably amongst the best in the area.

I'm happy to see if I can come up with someone closer to you, but I doubt I can offer you better sources.
