Why do I need a vault?
A vault is the last line of defense for your valuables. It buys you time to protect your valuables. Most thieves are in a hurry and want to get out as quick as they got in. Many home burglaries last only 10 minutes. The best burglars are bold enough to do their job even with an alarm going off. Unfortunately, it can take police a long time to respond. It makes sense to put your most valued items in the right kinds of safe and Hill Street Lock and Key can help you have the confidence you need.
How do I choose the right kind of vaults?
Vaults bring peace of mind. The wrong safe or vault just provides a false sense of security. You get what you pay for and no more. Our recommendation is to list of the possessions that will be placed in the safe and determine the size safe you'll need and the content value. Most people use thes items to start their list:
- • Cash
- • Precious Metals (gold & silver)
- • Collections (coin and stamp)
- • Firearms & ammunition
- • Jewelry
- • Photography equipment
- • Estate valuables, heirlooms
- • Documents (trusts, wills, tax docs)
- • From there, you should call Hill Street Lock and Key and speak with us about how to proceed.
