The choice seems easy to make...

One company says they will open your safe and change the combination to anything you want for $300.00 which is a very reasonable fee for that service. This also tells you he sounds experienced with old Moslers...

The second quote for $250.00 for opening the safe and then repairing the hole is cheaper, but you did also mention he wasn't providing the combination which would lead me to question his opening method or experience...

Repairing the hole is easy if kept small such as 1/4" or 5/16" can either weld the hold closed after filling with fire insulating material, such as fire caulk, or use a tapered steel pin and finish the safe off by puttying and painting if you want to go that far...

Remember it's just an old fire safe...
