Learn why a safe is a smart investment.

Have you ever considered purchasing a safe? A safe is a wise investment for many reasons. Not only will it protect valuables from theft and harm, a safe will last decades and needs little maintenance. The purchase of a safe will give you a sense of security and help protect your most precious items, whatever they may be.

If you’ve never thought about owning a safe, here are 5 reasons why a safe is a smart investment. 

1. Security in case of natural disaster or fire



It’s hard to imagine, but it’s necessary to protect your valuables and important documents from natural disasters. A safe will keep your most cherished items, photos, and critical papers protected in the case of tornado, fire, earthquake, or other natural disaster. According to the National Fire Protection Association, there were 365,500 home fires in 2015, which caused an incredible $7 billion in direct property damage. A safe will keep your valuables protected from fire and other life-altering disasters.
 

2. Store items away from children



You probably have items in your home that need to be stored away from children. A safe is a protected and out-of-reach area to store items that need to be kept secure, such as firearms and weapons. The safety of your family is a high priority, and a safe can help keep children safeguarded and give you peace of mind that your items are locked away and secured.

3. Keep important documents in one place



Keeping important documents and papers organized and in one centralized location can be a nightmare. A safe is a secure area to store important documents and allows for ample room to organize. Your confidential paperwork, such as insurance policies, will, passport, and birth certificate should be stored in a safe. This way, your identity and personal information is protected, and you won’t lose or misplace an important document.

4. Protect valuables



The most obvious reason to own a safe is to protect your valuables from theft and damage. Whether you have priceless jewelry, family heirlooms, a valuable collection of coins, or expensive guns, a safe will keep your prized possessions safe and secure. Storing items you can’t replace, such as family photos or gifts of high sentimental value, is also a smart idea.

5. Save on insurance



If you have high-priced items such as  jewelry, valuable electronics, or collectables like stamps and coins, owning a safe can help you save on your insurance premium. Storing these types of items in a safe can help you save on a personal articles policy, up to 10% depending on the insurance provider. Consult with a trusted insurance provider to learn the full extent of discounts for storing your valuables in a safe.
