5 reasons to choose Brickstone
Food is stored in the fridge, clothing is put in the closet. Where will you safeguard your cash, jewelry, watches, rare stamps, or important documents?
These items are for a safety-deposit box in a guarded vault.
Every Brickstone client has a personal guarded box, for which only the client has the key, and which can only be accessed via fingerprint and facial recognition.
Here are five benefits to storing your valuables at Brickstone:
1. Your items are protected against fire, flood, or other natural disasters in your home.
Natural disasters can destroy much more than the house itself. They destroy memories such as pictures, jewelry, birth certificates, and other important documents. Now you can preserve your most valuable possessions, copies of your important documents, and even digital photos.
2. Cost-effective, safe way to preserve private valuables
Only you know what you have in your personal box, at a cost determined according to the size of the safe and the period of rental. A low price for your peace of mind.
3. Prevention of Home Burglary
Your valuables cannot be stolen from your home if they are not there. Apart from the fact that most home safes do not represent a challenge to the average burglar, even if you invest in a safe costing tens of thousands of dollars, which is more protected than simpler safes, the current method of most burglars is simply to remove the safe from its location and continue the break-in in the comfort of a hidden location.
Moreover, the existence of a safe at home signals that your home is worth breaking into. It is enough that someone providing a service in your home, even a maid, will pass the information on regarding the existence of the safe to third parties, who will understand that your home is a good target for them to visit.
4. Your items are protected from loss or forgetfulness
All of your valuables are protected and in order in your personal, organized safety-deposit box. It is a comfortable and easy solution for people who have trouble keeping their house organized.
5. Members of your family will know where to find their important documents
If you keep a copy of an important document (like a will or insurance documents) in your personal box in Brickstone, members of your family will be able to retrieve them easily from one guarded, safe place.
Everything above leads to only one conclusion: Brickstone is the safest place for your valuables.
