There are numerous reasons why a Safe Deposit Box makes good sense, but a lot of people are not sure whether they actually need one or not. The simple answer is – if you have any valuables that you want to keep completely safe and secure – then yes – you do need a safe deposit box.
If you have any items that you consider irreplaceable, such as sentimental items or even paperwork that would be difficult to replace (Title Deeds etc.) the only way to keep these items truly safe & secure is in your own private safe deposit box and out of your home.
The pro-active way to prevent this occurrence is to store your deeds in a safe deposit box – you can rent your own safe deposit box with Merrion Vaults from as little as €250 per year with 7 day access.
Another advantage to having a safe deposit box is you know anything important to you is in one place, and not scattered about your home in different drawers or cupboards.
Security experts and even the Gardai will advise homeowners against having a home safe placed in their home, as not only will burglars always tend to find the safe but in some instances, if they can’t get immediate access to the safe it then becomes a dangerous ‘goal’ for them to come back to when you may be at home.
In a lot of instances you can also save money on home insurance by renting your own safe deposit box, therefore keeping any high-value items out of your home and off the ‘specified items’ list on your home insurance.
With 7 day access at Merrion Vaults it makes perfect sense to rent a safe deposit box and give you and your family ‘peace of mind’.
