Why everyone should get a safety deposit box

Apr 15, 2024

As seasoned security guards and security industry experts, we’ve heard it all when it comes to excuses for not utilising safety deposit boxes. One of the most common we come across is: “I don’t have anything to put in a safety deposit box.”  

While it may seem like a simple reason at first glance, allow us to challenge this and put forward a new argument as to why having a safety deposit box is a wise choice/ Especially for anyone who is concerned about safeguarding their valuables and sensitive documents.


Are you underestimating value? 

First and foremost, let’s address the misconception that safety deposit boxes are solely for the wealthy or those with extravagant assets. The truth is, you don’t need a stack of cash or bags of diamonds to benefit from the security and peace of mind that a safety deposit box provides.  

In fact, many individuals underestimate the value of the items they possess, both monetarily and sentimentally. 

Consider this: important documents such as property deeds, wills, birth certificates, and passports are invaluable assets that should be kept secure at all times. Losing or misplacing these documents can lead to a whole load of headaches and complications. Ranging from identity theft to legal disputes.  

By storing them in a safety deposit box, you ensure that they are protected from theft, fire, or any other unforeseen disasters that may occur on your premises.


Let’s get sentimental 

In addition to this, many of us have items of sentimental value that are irreplaceable. Family heirlooms, jewellery, or cherished photographs are priceless treasures that cannot be quantified in monetary terms. These items hold significant emotional value, and some very often wish to protect them against loss or damage.


Home storage vs a safety deposit box 

But what about the practicalities of storing these items? Many may argue that keeping valuables at home or in a personal safe is sufficient.  

However, this overlooks the inherent risks associated with storing valuables on your premises. No matter how secure you believe your home to be, there’s always a chance of burglary, fire, or natural disasters.  

And in contrast, safety deposit boxes are housed in highly secure facilities equipped with state-of-the-art security measures, including round-the-clock surveillance, access control, and advanced alarm systems.
