Many people think securing their valuable and important items is about hiding them in “secret places” around the house. Favourite spots include kitchen cupboards and shoe boxes under the bed or behind clothes in the wardrobe. As well as being well known hiding spots which burglars target immediately, these places offer no protection in the event of a fire or flood. This is why many people are opting for a much more secure method – a safe deposit box. Safe boxes offer all-round protection from theft, fire and flood and safe box rental is more reasonable than you might think, especially considering the value or irreplaceable nature of the contents. In this post, we will look at 3 key reasons you should keep your valuables in a safe deposit box.
The reason safe boxes are becoming so popular (and therefore hard to find availability in Hong Kong) is because burglars are no longer interested in stealing large items. Instead, favourite targets are smaller and much more valuable items such as passports, driving licences, credit cards, bank statements, jewellery, small electronic devices and cash.
Without a home safe, which is secured to the floor or wall, these items are rich pickings for potential thieves. Not only that, they are also easily destroyed or damaged in fires or floods. Luckily, given their small size, these items are well-suited to safe box storage. Having the valuables out of your house and in a secure box will give you peace of mind that they can’t be stolen or affected by fire or flood.
Some items are dear and memorable to you or perhaps, if seen by others, may cause unnecessary trouble. Safe boxes are a great place to keep more sensitive items such as divorce papers, photos, life insurance policies, etc. private.
As mentioned above, the one way to secure valuables properly in your home is in a safe which is attached to the floor or wall. But who really wants an ugly safe taking up space in their house? Especially in Hong Kong where every square foot is precious! Again, safe boxes allow to you securely store your valuable and important items without disturbing your home environment.
At this point, you may be thinking, of course safe boxes are a more secure method of protecting my valuables, but aren’t safe boxes in Hong Kong inconvenient and hard to come by?
