About Us

Hello, I’m Dan and I’m the founder of Online Safes.

I am an expat South African, having moved to the UK in 2010.

I am a very normal face behind the website who enjoys sports, the outdoors, family time and a good pint of lager (and now bitter! Its only taken a few years!) 

While growing up in South Africa, I strangely normalized the idea of homes being broken into and possessions being stolen, and as long as no one got injured or harmed, we would just see it as a part of life and move on.

The other thing about growing up in SA is you notice from a young age how many people start their own businesses, and this is due to the difficulty of securing a stable, well payed job. I think this engenders an entrepreneurial spirit in many of us, and it has definitely been the case for myself. 

I started Online Safes because I wanted to follow that spirit, and I never wanted anyone to feel that same vulnerability about their home and most precious and valuable possessions that I once did.   

At Online Safes we use the highest quality UK and EU based manufacturers that produce some truly sensational quality products. These manufacturers have been around a very long time and are just brilliant at what they do. 

Lastly from myself, we are not, nor have we ever tried to be anything but ourselves. We are not a huge retailer with 35 outlets around the country and a big call centre abroad. When you email, or call the number on the website you will come through to myself or my PA, and we will handle your purchase journey from start to finish. We are here whenever you need us and we will do all we can to make your shopping experience an enjoyable one. 

Thank you so much for your support. Your feedback and ideas are so important to us. We personally read every single review, DM, text, and email that gets sent, so please don't be a stranger. And if you have any ideas about how we can improve, we would love to hear them. 

All the best, 


P.S, here is a little more content to explain how we work. 


At Online Safes, our ultimate aim is to provide a safe, seamless online shopping experience for our customers, so they leave feeling content and confident with their purchase.

Why Choose Online Safes?

Our Philosophy

We are not a car insurance company. To us lasting relationships matter, and we do all we can to cultivate great ones. 

We are Authorized Dealers

Online Safes is an authorized dealer of every brand that we carry.  You can rest assured knowing you will receive the full manufacturer's warranty with every purchase.

We DON'T hold stock

This might seem like an odd thing to be proud of but hear us out. By having close relationships with all our manufacturers, we are able to offer you products straight from their factory floors. This means your product spends less time in transit and less time being 'handled', reducing the chance of damaged items. It also means we can keep overheads to a minimum (no warehouse expense for example), streamlining the whole process and passing on those savings to you. 

Satisfaction Guaranteed

We understand what it's like purchasing online without actually seeing and touching the product itself.  So we want you to know that all the manufacturers on this site are hand chosen by our owners to ensure you receive only the highest quality products. 

Customer Service Is Our Top Priority

Plain and simple, we are here for YOU, the customer. Our goal is to deliver the WOW factor in service.  We strive for excellence in customer service and are driven to provide value at all times. You can expect communication from us immediately after your order is placed, and also when your product ships.

100% Safe and Secure Online Shopping

We want you to have 100% confidence when making your purchases with us online. That’s why we offer payment options with the most trusted providers of online transactions. When placing an order with us, your credit card information is encrypted and none of the digits of your card are stored.

If you have any questions about our products, or if you would like to check the availability of an item, please use the Contact Us page to get in touch, call us at 01184050158, or email us at info@onlinesafes.co.uk. We would love to hear from you.
