How much money do you have to spend and how much time do you have to soften the building up? If money is no object and you have to open it up in a hurry, there is some good electric and hydrolic "big boy toys" that your truckies can use to blow open doors, gates and cut window bars.

A real good rule that I have picked up is: You can do something quickly, cheaply or easily. PICK TWO!
Send me your email address and I'll send you some info I have in pdf format on these systems.
