safety deposit boxes

As an owner of a safety deposit box facility, I constantly get asked the question “What is typically stored in a safety deposit box?”

Firstly, I would like to state that we never know what a customer stores in their safety deposit box. Each box contains a tray similar to the image attached. When a customer arrives at our facility, they remove the tray from the Safe Deposit Locker and take it to a private viewing room where there are no cameras and total privacy.

We generally advise clients to store items of value, items that are of sentimental value and items that are very difficult to replace if lost or stolen.

Typical Items Stored in a safety deposit box include:

  • Cash
  • Jewellery
  • Title Deeds
  • Gold and Silver Coins and Bars
  • Family Heirlooms
  • Birth Certificates and Passports
  • Last Will and Testament
  • Coin and Stamp Collections
  • Memory Sticks / Data Storage
  • Rare Books
  • Antiques
  • Fine Art Storage
  • Bitcoin Cold Storage

The question you have to ask yourself when deciding if you require a safety deposit box : How would you feel if this item was lost, stolen or damaged in a fire or flood?

The item may not have a high monetary value but may be of significant sentimental value. Some items of value can never be replaced with a cheque from your insurer. These items should always to stored securely.

Our various box sizes and walk-in vaults are ideal for secure storage of all sizes of valuables, from small pieces of Jewellery to larger items such as Fine Art & Antiques.

A safety deposit box at Merrion Vaults costs less than €4 per week and offers you complete Peace of Mind.
