Buy a Safe

BUY A SAFE Visit Site

Cost:

Prices range from $14.00 to over $1,000.00

Return Policy:

30-day policy with 20% restocking fee. No returns accepted after 30-days.

Buy a Safe began in 1991 as a lock and safe retail service. They launched their website in 2002. With over 30 years of experience, they offer a wide range of safes and locks for both personal and professional needs.

The website is very well-organized and informative. First off, we learned that there were many kinds of safes:

  • Biometric: requires a fingerprint
  • Can: camouflages what you hide your valuables in
  • Cash boxes: stores money
  • Drop: allows you to add items to your safe without opening it
  • Fire: protects your valuables from fire or water damage
  • Floor: stores larger items
  • Gun: protects loved ones from guns
  • Wall: installs directly into the wall

We also appreciated a shopping tool called, "The Safe Wizard". The page asks you, "What would you like to Protect?" Then, it lists several popular items people store in safes:

  • Jewelry
  • Money
  • Documents
  • Guns

If you are unsure what safe you need, simply click on the appropriate item icon and you will be redirected to a list of safes that best fit your needs. This helpful tool narrows down the selection process and saves time.

Our only issue with Buy A Safe is that we had a difficult time finding reviews. They have no testimonials on their page, and they are not registered with the Better Business Bureau. We did find two complaints stating poor customer service and failure to assist with a return. With such a long history and an organized website, one would think including testimonials would be a given. Overall, this site is efficient and direct

WALMART Visit Site

Cost:

Ranging from $19.95 to over $600.00.

Return Policy:

Stores offer a generous 90-day policy. However, the site recommends contacting customer care via the website for more information as some departments have specific terms.

Sam Walton opened the first Walmart store in 1962. Since then, the company has continued to grow both in the number of physical stores and as an online presence. They have an A rating with the Better Business Bureau.

In regard to home safes, Walmart offers new customers a wide range of choices. They carry the following brands:

  • Sentry Safe
  • First Alert
  • Best Choice Products
  • ShotLock
  • Steel Master

The site isn't as streamlined as other online home safe stores, but you can narrow your search by selecting the price range you hope to stay in and the brand you wish to purchase. We recommend finding more information about any safe you're thinking of buying before finalizing your sale.

They do offer a generous 90-day return policy, and you can return your product through online customer service or go to the nearest location. However, the site clearly states that its return policy is not universal. You must check with the specific department to find out if an item is returnable.

Walmart doesn't have the best reputation for being a pleasant shopping experience. Their site reflects that sentiment. While it is neat, there is no outstanding feature about the site. You can see pictures of products with their pricing, but that is all. You aren't given much more information unless you research each item.

Overall, the site is adequate. If you shop for a home safe through the Walmart website, you will see what items they offer and how much they cost. But you won't find out much more. We did read several positive reviews from both shoppers and employees on other sites. However, there are just as many complaints.

Continued from above

There are a number of options to consider before purchasing a safe for your home. Some of these include:

  • Biometric: Do you want your safe lock to require a fingerprint?
  • Wall: Do you want your safe installed into a wall?
  • Diversion: Do you want to camouflage where you keep your valuables in what might appear to be a book or soda can?
  • Floor: Do you have a larger item to store?
  • Gun: Do you have a firearm you want to store safely?
  • Fireproof/Waterproof: Do you have important documents like a birth certificate or marriage license you need to protect from damage?

Another feature to consider carefully is what kind of lock you want on your safe. Do you want to open your safe with a key? Would you prefer a biometric lock? Or perhaps you might like a keypad? How about a combination lock? Maybe you want an electronic lock? You have many options.

To assist you with this decision, TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed the best Home Safe companies available today. We hope that seeing the pros and cons of each company will help you choose what kind of safe will work best in your home!
