A safe is one of those things a lot of homeowners know they should have, but often put off buying. This can be because they are confused by the different types of safe on the market, or they don’t even know what items they would like to protect. However, choosing the best home safe for your needs doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are some tips for choosing the best safe for your needs.
What Do You Need To Protect?
Identifying exactly what valuable items you need to protect is the first step in choosing a safe. You may only have a few pieces of valuable jewellery, or you may have documents, cash and artwork. Once you’ve worked out what you want to store in your safe, you can choose the right size safe. We always recommend choosing a safe with a little extra room to allow for future needs.
Types of Home Safes
There are hundreds of different safes on the market. They come in different shapes and sizes and can range from a few hundred dollars up to a few thousand. There are also options of free-standing safes, fixed to the ground safes or wall-mounted safes. The most common types of safes include:
