RB_NewsSafeDepositChoose a Safe Deposit Box instead of a Home Safe.

Why Safe Deposit Boxes are better than Home Safes:
  • Owning a home safe can make you a target.
  • Safes are only fire-resistant not fire proof. Data, media, family photos are vulnerable.
  • Home insurance may not cover all safe contents. Insurance claim deductibles and claims can increase policy cost.
  • Banks offer much more security
