The Benefits of Keeping Your Valuables Stored in Vaults

A home vault is one of the safest ways to store your valuables. A professionally installed vault provides security, convenience, and peace of mind.

The belongings that are most valuable to you should bring you joy. Jewelry, family heirlooms, and other precious items are a source of pleasure, but they can also be a source of stress when it comes to deciding how you should keep them secure. A home alarm system alone may not stop experienced burglars from grabbing whatever they can take in the few minutes before the police arrive. Toensure that your possessions are as secure as they can possibly be, a home vault is your best option.

Economical, Convenient, High-Level Security

Having a vault in your home means you can protect your belongings and investments while keeping them close at hand for immediate access. It provides you with a level of protection similar to what you could achieve with a bank-secured safe deposit box, without the storage fees that can detract from your items’ monetary value. A vault also provides you with plenty of room if you have large or numerous items to store. A fireproof vault gives you added protection in the event of a fire or other natural disaster.

Peace of Mind

With a professionally installed home vault, you’re secure in the knowledge that you’ve taken every step possible to protect your most precious items. Relying on a trusted, experienced professional to install and service your vault not only provides you with expert installation and customer service; it also gives you the added security of knowing that you and your valuables will be treated with the utmost discretion.

The Top Five Hiding Places for Home Safes

Burglars are getting smarter, so homeowners need to think one step ahead. Purchasing a safe to store your valuables is a good idea, but you should consider where it will be kept to get the full benefits. Most people know to look behind picture frames or in the floor. You may need to be creative to find the best place to put your safe in the home. Here are five places that you may not have considered.

  1. Your basement is a good place to protect the safe from fire damage, but if your home is prone to flood damage, you should reconsider. Make sure that your safe can be bolted down to prevent someone from walking off with it.
  2. The floor safe is often an obvious location, so you should avoid the obvious settings, like the master bedroom. However, a floor safe is very difficult to open and noisy, which makes it more secure.
  3. The bookshelf safe is a good choice if you have a collection of books that it can be hidden behind. Searching through a bunch of books is a tedious job for a thief.
  4. Wall safes are still a viable option, but you need to make it difficult for a thief to locate.
  5. A freestanding safe that is bolted somewhere in your home is always a good choice. Placing it out of site allows more options for placement. Look around to consider places in your own home for installation.
