Last time we talked about all the different types of safes that are available to protect valuables in your business. While most people think that safes are required for businesses, I would have to argue that safes are equally important in the home. If you think about it, we all have a lot of important documents that need to be protected against fire, flood, and other disasters. Even if you don’t expect to have a robbery in your home, there are obviously many other ways that these important and precious documents might perish. For this reason, we always recommend that a family have a fire-proof safein their home.
While many of these sort of objects are not necessarily valuable to any one but your family – could you imagine losing your daughters first lock of hair? Or the video of her trip home from the hospital. In addition, if you keep expensive jewelry, a supply of cash, or other small valuables around the house (often in sock drawers?), you should consider buying a burglar safe as well. These sort of safes comes with complex locks that even the best burglar couldn’t pick. I would not suggest keeping valuables that are not fire-safe in a plain burglar safe. Instead we have combination safes available that protect both against the high heat of a fire and against the tricky lock-picking skills of a burglar. These combo safes are the best bet if you want to keep all your things in a single place.
While few people are robbed, it seems like the best decision is to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. You’ll never regret having a safe but you might regret not having one. I hope this has helped you to understand the nuances and complexities of buying a safe. We have tried to break things down for you so help make your decision more manageable.
