In recent months we have noticed an increase in activity of safe sales and the main reason for this is that people fear their hard-earned money is not safe in a financial institution. While this may or may not be a wise decision, we do feel that if you choose to retrieve your money and take it home, you have created another problem. Our company is in the business of security, and each day we talk to people that tell us heartbreaking stories about how their cash, jewelry, and other valuables were stolen. It isn't just thieves that take these items; fire is also a real concern.
What should a person do?
First, if you are contemplating keeping some extra cash at home, be smart and don't use your mattress as a place to store the money. Hiding valuables in innovative places can be a drawback because, although a burglar may not look in the freezer for example, for money and valuables, there is risk associated with fire, floods, and other natural disasters. We had one customer tell us that she placed her expensive jewelry in the pockets of coats hanging in her coat closet. One day she was doing some spring cleaning and decided that she needed to donate some coats because she no longer wore them.
A few days later she recognized her mistake and went to the place where she donated the coats, but they were already gone. Guess what some lucky people found in their new coat pockets? The only reasonable alternative is to invest in the right product to protect your valuables. Our safes and security containers are often a fraction of the cost of the value of what is being protected. Investing in the right burglar fire safe should be your priority to protect these valuables. We think you will be pleasantly surprised at how little it costs to invest in a safe that is meant to meet your needs. Click here to find out what the different burglar ratings mean.
