Top Tips For Making The Most Of A Home Safe
Toying with the idea of investing in a home safe? Recently taken the plunge and purchased a safe to secure your personal belongings in the house?
Good for you! A home safe is one of the best ways to protect your assets against theft, fire and loss. Admittedly, it will set you back several hundred pounds, so it’s only natural you want to choose the best one and use it to its full potential.
Here the team at eSafes share some tips to help you make the most of your home safe and receive maximum value for money.
· Avoid buying a cheap safe
The cheapest home safes are often the smallest and made from lower-quality materials. These are ideal if you’re on a budget, short on space or only need to protect a couple of little items, such as cash and jewellery.
If you can afford to, we’d always recommend buying a safe from a reputable brand. Not only will it be made from top-quality materials but it will also last longer, reducing the need for costly repairs and replacements and allowing you to use it for years to come.
· Choose a safe that’s big enough for your future needs
A larger safe may seem like an unnecessary expense, but it’s guaranteed to give you more space to store valuables comfortably, ensuring they don’t become damaged or destroyed whilst locked away.
We appreciate that it’s hard to predict what you’ll need to house in your safe in the future. However, opting for a home safe that’s slightly bigger than you need will allow you to accommodate all items neatly.
· Install your safe properly
Home safes are extremely versatile and can be positioned in almost any concealed spot – be it at the back of a cupboard, under the floorboards, behind the wall or somewhere else.
As a general rule of thumb though, when safes are secured to the ground using bolts, opportunistic criminals are unable to steal the safe and its contents.
Although it is possible to install a home safe yourself, you may wish to contact a professional to ensure it’s anchored correctly. The safe installation team here at eSafes will be more than happy to help, so be sure to get in touch!
· Think about the storage conditions
Finding a suitable spot to hide your safe is one thing, but you also need to consider the items stowed inside and what you need to do to keep them as safe as possible.
Some safes have shelves that enable you to space everything out, keeping them organised and protected against damage.
For home safes with electronic locks, it’s best not to install your safe in a humid room. This is because moisture and mould can play havoc on the electrics – making it difficult for you to open and close the safe door.
