Ask the Safe Experts

 Do I really need a safe?


You need a safe – you just don’t know it!  We all own valuable items that need protection from a fire or burglary. Statistics show that if a companies records are lost in a fire, 17% can no longer furnish a financial statement, 14% suffer a reduction in credit rating and 43% go out of business completely.  No home or business is safe from fire. Your vital records and possessions are only as safe as the quality of protection you provide for them! With a  quality fire-resistant safe, you can be confident your records will survive.

Often times, individuals don’t realize they need a safe for their own personal valuables until it is too late and something very important to them is lost in a fire or stolen in a burglary.  Where do you keep the title to your car, old family pictures, your will or other important papers? You can’t hide valuables from fire and unless properly protected, a fire can destroy them in no time at all.  What about your jewelry, cash, guns, or other valuables? Are they just stashed in a drawer or cabinet for a burglar’s easy access? Your vital records and valuable possessions are only as safe as the quality of protection you provide for them.

Is my safe deposit box at the bank the best place to keep my important papers and valuables?

Many times a Safe Deposit box at the bank is not the best option to store important papers or valuables.  If you need quick, convenient access to your important papers and valuables, a quality home safe is a much better solution. Who has the time to run to the bank when you want to wear that special item of jewelry or watch for a night out?  What happens when you want to work on important papers (deeds, wills, etc.) on the weekend?  Getting to the bank during these times may be impossible, but your safe is always right there where you need it.  Cost is yet another factor to consider. How much does annual rental for your safe deposit box cost?  A quality safe will protect the items you treasure for a lifetime, with no annual rental fees.

What kind of safe is right for me?

This is perhaps the most common question we receive. Here are a few key points to consider:

  1. What is the purpose of your safe?
  2. What kinds of items do you need to protect? (Papers, valuables, guns, jewelry, media)
  3. What is the value of what you are storing inside your safe?
  4. What threats are you trying to protect your valuables from? (Theft, fire, burglary)

It is important to choose the right safe for the specific protection you need.  A Certified Safe Expert can help you think through which combination of features will serve you best and what size safe you really need.

Does it matter where I go to buy my safe?

Absolutely! Buying from a company that doesn’t truly understand safes can lead you to a false sense of security.
