It is not difficult with a couple correct tools. Are you sure you or a friend of yours can't do this?

The job is very small to do in most cases, and you want to find a service person to do that small job on the cheap? Might not pay the gas to get there...

A cheap hammerdrill from harbor freight some masonry anchors and a hammer and crescent wrench & a couple 3/8" x 5" lag bolts and drill bits. Go to home depot ask the hardware people how to do it. Go online and look up. Pretty simple for less than $75-$80 bucks and now you have some tools. not rocket science even a woman could do it.9lol)

It would only take me 30 minutes tops. But the two plus hour drive each way is keeping me from volunteering to do it for you. I hope someone closer steps up and helps you.

Are you bolting to a concrete floor, or to studs in the walls? You can rent or buy a SDS hammerdrill for $50 (rent) to $300(buy) if its concrete. I would be hesitant to have someone I didnt know install my safe since that is somebody who knows you have firearms or valuables worth stealing. If you were in the sac area I would help you out, but orange county is a bit of a drive. If you bought your safe from a gun store or the manufacturer you could probably contact them for a reliable installer, but it is better to do it yourself IMO.

You could give Boswell Safe a call. They post on here.

I just bought a safe from them and they installed it this morning. They're out of Temecula but I believe they come up here fairly often.

You can rent a hammer drill from home depot. Get the anchors there as well. It is not rocket surgery...
