Safe deposit storage – the perfect place for your valuables and irreplaceables

If you have a safety deposit box, here’s a breakdown of what to store. And if you don’t have a safety deposit box, here are some of the items that might make you reconsider.

A safe deposit box offers maximum protection and maximum security. Strong, and largely fireproof and theft-proof (unauthorised entry into the vault is almost impossible), they are the safest place to store the items you simply cannot afford to go missing.

If it’s valuable or irreplaceable, and you won’t need it in an emergency, high-end safe deposit boxes (such as that provided by Knox) are simply the most secure and dependable storage solution.

More specifically, we highly recommend storing the following items in a safety deposit box:

  • Valuable jewellery
  • Family heirlooms
  • Valuable collectables (coins, stamps, comics, etc.)
  • Copies of important documents
  • Original certified birth and marriage certificates
  • Property deeds
  • Car ownership papers
  • Personal private information
  • Disks/drives with important digital information
  • Digital usernames and passwords
  • School records and university degrees
  • Contracts and other important business records
  • An inventory of your household possessions (for insurance purposes)
  • Precious photos and negatives
  • Personal letters/memorabilia

Other items you may want to store include cash (safer than under a mattress); key documents such as birth certificates and passports (unless you particularly enjoy home affairs queues and a three-month wait for a replacement); and spare keys (don’t keep these at home or in your car for obvious reasons).

Nevertheless, each item should be evaluated on its own merits, and each person’s needs and circumstances are different.

Of course, there are things you should not store – and in fact are prohibited from doing so. They include illicit items such as drugs, unlicensed weapons and stolen merchandise.

You also want to avoid storing fragile, easily breakable items (keep your rare Macallan whisky safe at home); perishables (avocados, lettuce, milk are generally frowned upon) and living things (your prize pet turtle Gertrude might not enjoy the confines of a safety deposit box).
