Except for the fact that payment activities of banks increasingly take place online, it becomes harder and harder to rent a physical safe deposit box at regular banks, although a secured safe deposit box might be essential in some cases, like storing important documents such as patents, contracts or bonds. Documents or collections which are unique and irreplaceable and will have adverse effects when lost or damaged. A safe deposit box might also be extremely suitable for storing data carriers like USB sticks, CDs or memory cards. Physical storage of such data carriers is always safer than storing them in the so-called ‘Cloud’: after all, you can never be sure who has access to these data. Storage at Schipper Safestore is fraud-insensitive and discrete. You can even determine the authorization yourself, in consultation.
Besides above mentioned clear examples which require a safe storage, there are a number of alternatives you might not come up with yourself. What about a car museum with a large collection of exclusive old-timers? If you keep keys and car papers of all these valuable collector items on location, it might bring risks. Or a construction company with a fleet (shovels etc.): Keeping the spare keys on location or at home brings large risks. In this and in much more other specific cases renting a secured safety deposit box might help you out.
