Griffin & Howe possesses a state-of-the-art alarmed and climate controlled security facility for your firearm(s). Our fees are $300/gun per year plus an insurance fee of $7.00 per $1000 of the declared value of the firearm(s). This includes inspection & remedial cleaning of the firearm(s) annually. We require the annual fee & insurance premium upon receipt of your firearm(s). You will be invoiced annually, on the anniversary date of the initial storage, for the next 12-month period. If you do not keep your firearm(s) in storage for an entire year, we will return any unused portion. Our insurance policy carries a $1,000.00 deductible which, in the event of loss or damage, the client is responsible for.
It is important to note that, in order to comply with federal and state laws, firearms cannot be returned to you without meeting the requirements for the transfer of a firearm in the state in which you reside. In New Jersey, for example, you would be required to have a NJ Firearms ID Card and a valid NJ Drivers License with matching addresses and undergo a NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check), for which a fee is charged. Stored handguns require a pistol permit for each in addition to the above and you may only take possession of one every 30 days. If you live outside of New Jersey, the firearm(s) would be shipped to a Firearms Dealer of your choice.
Bring any firearms you wish to store to any of our locations. Following inspection we will note the condition of your firearm(s) and agreed upon insurance value on your storage agreement which both parties will sign.
Let us know if you wish to have your firearm(s) serviced by our Gunsmithing Department while they are in storage (eg: strip cleaned or customized) as we are able to provide specialty services for all types of sporting firearms. See the list of services offered by Gunsmithing.
