A lot of people have seen safes in their lives before. Those white little microwave looking boxes in every hotel room, the big black box in the back of your Grandpa’s closet. Those are safes. Heavy duty, usually fully steel boxes for you to store stuff in.
Why do people buy these? Well, to put it simply, it’s to protect items that they have deemed valuable. Your Grandpa worked all his life to be comfortable. He has a stack of cash that he buys all of you Grand kids candy when you were young, and now helps you financially with other stuff.
When he’s not using the cash, he tosses it in the safe. Why? Well, as said earlier he earned that cash. And should someone be terrible enough to break in to an elder’s home, they won’t be able to steal the cash. And thus your Grandpa has justified the purpose of that big black box.
So What Are Some Down Sides Then?
Simply put, not every company cares that you are storing belongings that you wouldn’t ever let in harm’s way. They are simply trying to make a profit off of you, and you need to be weary of this.
Never ever buy a second hand safe. Always go new. If you buy new and go with a reputable brand, there is a good chance you can land yourself a top of the line warranty. Should the safe malfunction, you will be able to have it replaced in no time.
Especially if you buy online.
The online marketplace is huge for security. And nobody has really got a firm grasp on the marketplace just yet. This means that every company wants your dollar, and right now are putting in place high quality systems to make sure you are full protected for years to come.
Sounds complicated, but we would recommend a post like this one to sort through the junky safes and only deal with the highest quality ones.
Some Features You Should Make Sure A Safe Has
Every safe should have these following features. It is important that you pay close attention here. You do not want to pay top dollar for a safe that does not come with an industry feature. You are shooting yourself in the foot by doing this and not spending wisely.
• Flood protection
• Fire protection
• Burglary protection
We’re sure most of you already have heard of all three. Just because a brand recommends their safe and says that it is durable for all three of those fronts, does not mean it actually is.
A brand Barska is great because they have biometric technology implemented into their safes. Tough to crack. But they have sometimes reported to not be the best in waterproof resistance. It’s just how it is. Do your due diligence.
