I bought a safe on Saturday. It is going to be delivered in a few days. I bought it from a safe dealer 30 miles from me. (not a department store)
Am I being paranoid if I ask the 2 delivery guys for their names and addresses? In case I am ripped off in a month.

Wile - you could ask them, but then in the dark of the night, as you lay in bed staring at the ceiling, you'll wonder if they gave you legitimate info.

Simple , have a camera available. When they drive
up and they carry it in the house have someone take a picture of the truck AND license plate. as they come out the door thank them and ask for their autographs , then take a picture of them getting into their delivery truck, so when they tell their friends, who will be the one to rip you off. YOU will have a start as to WHO DONE IT

Just pay attention to the delivery company. Take note of it and write their names down if they have it on their shirt. They should give you a copy of the freight bill ( not a monetary bill, more like a confirmation of delivery), have them sign it also. The general way to look at it is if they are with a legit company and have been with the company a while, they are probably legit. No one wants the liability of a crook on the payroll.

I agree. If they work for a safe dealer. They should be bonded. I have had that pulled on me several times while doing generator installs at homes. Walked off the job one time along with several other guys.

A reputable company will be bonded and insured.
Call the supervisor ahead of time and tell him you would like to know the names of who is delivering the safe.

That should be about the best you can do.

We had a sofa delivered before christman. Same worry. They saw my gun safe and all my animal mounts on the wall so it was obvious I was a big hunter.

The safe should be bolted or chained down anyway. So what can they get? Also make sure you keep accurate insurance and a list of serial numbers, Etc.

You're joking, right? Because if you aren't and pulled that on me after delivering and msucling the safe into your home after you requested it, my first cellphone call would be to the police to tell them that you just accused me of robbery, and my second call would be to my lawyer to sue you and my boss for setting me up.

If you asked me that I would immediately think you were hunting someone to frame so you could rip off your ins company & you woulden't be getting that safe from me. I'll guarantee you if you ask the owner or delivery guy that & something happens shortly afterwards YOU will be the prime suspect.

If he is worried about the delivery guys have wife take pictures of delivery and if they say anything say she making a scrape book of pictures of her husband hobby. As far as asking for ID. it is legal but you don't give your social security number or drivers license number . In the 38 years I drove I was asked 1,000 of times for ID.
