We do a lot of heavy-duty commercial work, but we got our start in just helping folks secure their stuff
Corpus Christi, TX (PRWEB) May 15, 2008
Zack Gilmore of Vault and Safe has been matching businesses and consumers with the right safe for their needs for 3 years, and now he's putting that experience into his new customer-friendly blog at http://www.VaultAndSafes.com.
"These safes are hard to find; nobody carries them in their inventory because the merchandise is expensive to carry," explains Zack, whose decade of experience as a locksmith led him to providing a better class of safe for his clientele. "What I try to find out is what the customer needs. Just because I have 5 safes in stock and a huge showroom doesn't mean it's a match -- we're better off selling a customer a safe based on what they need rather than what we have."
Selection has always been key for Vault and Safe, setting them apart from their competition. With a wide variety of secure solutions for both commercial and residential use, he's made it easier for customers to readily identify their needs and match them to the right safe. "Most stores that sell safes only carry about 5," explains Zack, who runs the business with his wife, Jessica. "We carry over 400. We also help a lot of retailers; my wife has a history in loss prevention, and was aware of how many people stole from a retail perspective. We help a lot of retailers with drop and depository safes, cash management, and other issues. We have a new line of Tidel safes for sale, which are geared toward cash management as opposed to, say, a jeweler's vault that is geared toward theft prevention."
Opening a blog allows Zack to share his expertise with his customers, matching them with the right safe and explaining the difference between various features. "We do a lot of heavy-duty commercial work, but we got our start in just helping folks secure their stuff," says Zack. "People frequently don't know what they're buying. Oftentimes a safe company will advertise a 'fireproof burglary safe', but it'll have a little handle on it to make it portable, and it can't be bolted down to the foundation. That's not a burglary safe at all -- if anything, that's a big billboard that says 'Steal me, I'm important'! I want to make sure people understand what it is they're buying, and they don't make those sorts of mistakes. Sometimes just talking with a person for five minutes can make a radical difference in their choice of safe for their home or business."
After three years of helping customers safeguard their valuables and informing them of what safe best fits their needs, Zack is looking at the bigger picture for the future. "We're expanding to become a sole source of security. We also, through our locksmith business, do camera systems -- we'll be adding camera systems, tasers, things like that to our site soon. If it's related to security, business or personal, we want to be that one stop shop."
