15 Things to Keep in a Safe

Posted on Nov 13, 2018

Have you ever thought of why you should have a safe?


We all keep valuables at home and anyone who has experienced a burglary or fire will know how it feels to lose items such as heirlooms, private papers and personal data that cannot easily be replaced.


Home safes are a simple and reliable way for you to protect your personal and family items.  Often people think a safe is not worth the cost, and it is not until you need to replace your valuables (some will be irreplaceable), or documents, that you wish you had installed a safe.  Purchasing a home safe with fire resistance will help protect your most treasured possessions.


What Valuables Should You Keep in Your Home Safe?


Here is an idea of what you could keep in your safe and the list is not exhaustive.


  • Money
  • Jewellery
  • Passports
  • Birth certificates
  • Watches
  • Gold
  • Credit Cards
  • Deeds
  • Insurance documents
  • Share certificates
  • Bonds
  • Photographs
  • Laptop
  • Data storage devices
  • Computer back-ups


I would always advise buying your safe from a reputable seller who will be able to discuss your needs. Also, check your insurance policy and speak to your insurer, they will be able to tell you what grade/cash rating would be required for your possessions.
