History of Safety Deposit Lockers
Modern Safe Deposit Lockers have been around since the 1800s. The idea of keeping your valuables secure in a Safe Deposit Locker is not a new one. High Street Banks have been offering this facility for the best part of the twentieth century, although in recent year more and more have started closing this service at many of their branches.
Burglaries are on the rise
Burglaries are going up. In London, between July 2019 and July 2020, the Metropolitan Police reported a total of 74,076 cases. The most common item to be stolen is jewellery. And Office of National Statistics report that 58% of the time, the homeowner is at home at the time of the burglary.
There is an incredible risk of loss if your jewellery is taken should your home be burgled both in terms of financial and sentimental value. If stolen, the financial value would take years to rebuild them while the sentimental value would never be replaced.
