You don’t have to be rich or famous in order to have a safe at home. You also don’t have to live Hollywood or Manhattan and be a business or entertainment mogul. Home safes are now affordable and more mainstream than ever. In fact, our Locksmith Clarkston GA team has been busy installing home safes in all areas of town and in all sizes and materials. There was a time when enclosed garages were also considered for the well off or well connected. Now, multi bay garages are considered standard in new home purchases. The same is quickly happening with residential safes; more and more homeowners are seeing the benefits having one to secure their most prized possessions and valuables.
How do I know if I need one?
Here’s a simple question; do you have items that you’d like to protect and preserve? Do you consider yourself a private person? Do you have documents or cash money that you’d like to save for a rainy day or emergency? If you answered yes to any of these; you could benefit from having a safe at home.
Each safe need is different
Your next door neighbor may use his or her safe to store watches and jewelry. Your friend down the street may keep important documents in his. You might be thinking of stashing cash in yours. There’s no one-size-fits-all way to use your home safe; each circumstance is different and unique. You should work closely with a residential locksmith shop either here in Clarkston, GA or in your own city. Your technician will be able to recommend the right safe model for your needs including the right safe construction materials and the best location in your home for your safe to be placed in.
Questions you may have
Buying any appliance or tool opens produces questions both before and after the sale; home safes are no different. Here are some of the most common ones we hear:
- Will having a home safe make me a target for burglars or home invaders?
- What if I forget my dial combination or key code sequence? How will I access my safe, then?
- Are there monthly maintenance costs to service or repair my safe? I don’t want to add to my household bills.
- Can I afford to buy a home safe or should I just wait until the prices fall?
- Should I keep it quiet and be discreet that I have a home safe? Whom should I actually tell?
- What exactly can I put into my home safe?
Having a home safe will not make you more susceptible to burglars and home invaders. The prevalence of home safes and your discretion work together to make having a home safe; safe! Now, if you brag to others that your home contains a safe full of cash or jewelry; sure, that is a fool hardy invitation to problems but generally safe owners know to keep their safe contents to themselves.
Safe prices are very affordable and you can price many models online or in a store. You can buy used safes and save money but we don’t recommend that option. You’ll wind up paying more in repair and maintenance costs of your safe was not well maintained or if it is sealed and you now need it unlocked and opened for you.
