These re-certified containers are reconditioned and inspected by a GSA locksmith before they are offered for sale.The process of having GSA containers serviced is very detailed and requires a certified locksmith. Each and every part is checked for defects and if necessary will be replaced or repaired. The full process can be very lengthy as all of our used safes, file cabinet and containers go through a powder coated paint process. Prior to being ready for sale, each container is cleaned, oiled and must pass inspection by the locksmith.
After the container has passed the inspection service and process, a re-certification label is placed on the front of the safe. If the container is a file cabinet it is place on the upper left corner of the drawer head. These metal labels must be on the container for it to be GSA approved.
The original serial numbers of the safe be it Mosler, Diebold or Hamilton will still be present on the inside of the file cabinet drawer. These can easily be seen on any two drawer or four drawer container.
