Everyone has something that they want to keep safe. It is comforting to know that your most prized possessions are secure when you are away.
However, it is even more uplifting to know that your items are safe within your own home. There are five main reasons why safe owners love their home safes.
Security at the ready
Having a safe place to keep your valuables is great for your peace of mind but having a safe place within your own home in your own home is even better. Sometimes the things you want to keep safe are also the things you need to access on a regular basis. For instance, you might want to keep your National Insurance card in a secure location, however you may need to access your NI card every so often for things like work applications and tax forms. A home safe can keeps valuables secure and ready for use when you need them in a hurry.
Safety for your heirlooms
Every family has its own timeless artefacts. The priceless relics passed down from generation to generation that carry their own tale of your family history can carry enormous sentimental value. However, these heirlooms can sometimes have monetary value as well, making them appealing to thieves. Having a secure place to store them is important but, on the other hand, you don’t want to hide away something like your grandfather’s pocket watch which will never to be seen or enjoyed. A home safe allows you to keep your heirlooms on display for your own personal pleasure, while providing secure storage while you are away.
No monthly fees
Security and safety deposit boxes outside the home are some great options for securing certain types of valuables. However, they’re not perfect for everything and they typically have monthly or annual fees associated with them. If you don’t want to spend money every month to keep your treasures secure, a home safe is a better option for you.
Grant access to who you want
Security measures like safety deposit boxes may keep out everyone, including your loved ones. When you own your own home safe you can control who gets in and out. If you want, you can limit access to just yourself or allow close friends and family members access in case of emergencies. This is a great advantage that safe owners enjoy because items that are often kept in safes are also things you might need if you become incapacitated like forms with information that tells you how to contact your insurance agencies.
Plus, security boxes outside the home could mean other people like bank clerks have access to your valuables. Human corruption or error can cause problems if someone were to meddle with your valuables.
They keep Mother Nature out
Aside from criminals, natural forces are the biggest threat to your valuables. Fire and flood both represent issues for delicate items like birth certificates, NI cards, insurance forms and many other things. A quality fire/water safe is great for protecting your goods from the elements, especially items like insurance forms during a home disaster.
