I'm hearing crickets again. So, we can only assume that the only warranty work that would most likely pop up would be from normal wear and tear. In which case, the Sturdy warranty is not better than AMSECS. You would have to spend a load of money in shipping to have your safe repaired by Sturdy in this case. Where as with AMSEC, you could find a local dealer to come right out to your home and pay a much smaller fee for the repair compared to Sturdy shipping costs.
