When wanting to protect your belongings by using a safe, it’s essential you choose a safe tailored to your needs. There are many different types of safes and they all have differing functions. In this blog, we’re going to be focusing on two of the most common types of safes; cash safes and fire safes.
Finding suitable types of safes
As mentioned, choosing your required type of safe is dependant on the need for it. Try to match the safe to your needs. For example, we recently attended a property that had their safe pried open. The thief had used a crowbar and made their way into the safe. Upon opening the safe, the thief made off with the owners cash.
When the customer returned home he was flabbergasted to see that his safe had been broken in to. Many hold told the customer that his safe was perfect for the job (of protecting his money).
When our Five Star Locksmith team arrived to this Melbourne home, we straight away realised that the customer was using a fire safe. A fire safe is great if you have certain documents that you’re trying to protect in the case of a fire. If you are wanting to protect your cash though, you will need to invest in a cash safe. This is simply because a basic fire safe does not have the same anti-theft rating of a cash safe.
