Whether you’ve been considering a home safe for a while, or have recently started your research, there are so many advantages to investing in a Yale Safe for your home. 

Yale is amongst the biggest names in the safe industry, but why should you choose one for your home?

In this blog security experts, LockShop Direct, share four of the main benefits that come with having your own Yale home safe. 

  1. Protect your valuable items from theft

The main reason many choose to purchase a safe for their home is to protect their valuables in the event of a break-in. 

Burglars want to be in and out of your house as quickly as possible, the average burglary time is 8 – 10 minutes. This means they need to be quiet to avoid detection. Breaking into a safe isn’t a quiet job and takes far longer than rummaging through your drawers. Plus, it’s unlikely your average burglar has the expertise required to break into a safe.

From jewellery and car keys to passports and cash – the list of items you’d miss if they got stolen is endless. 

However, safes aren’t just for expensive items. Your sentimental items are just as important. They may be inexpensive, but they’re irreplaceable. 

Every Yale safe, except the Yale underfloor safe, is fitted with an electronic lock which offers guaranteed protection from break-ins and theft.

  1. Keep your important documents safe 

Another reason you could benefit from a Yale Safe within your home is to keep your important documents safe. 

It’s so easy to misplace important documents or damage them without even noticing – we’re talking anything from coffee mug rings and water spillage right through to flood damage.  

Placing your documents within a safe will keep them safe from damage and will ensure you know exactly where to find them when needed.

It’s stressful enough getting your valuable items stolen, however if burglars get their hands on your important documents, your passport or birth certificate for example, this could lead to identity theft which could cause catastrophic problems further down the line. 

  1. A cost-effective way to store your items securely 

An alternative to buying a home safe is to opt for a safety deposit box at a bank. However, this service has been reduced in recent years, with only a handful of national banks offering it. 

Safety deposit boxes usually incur an annual fee, meaning you can expect to pay anything from £200 to £750 per year. Instead, you can avoid this annual cost by buying a Yale Safe for your home for as little as £40. 

Unfortunately, safety deposit boxes in banks are only accessible during certain hours, plus some providers have an additional charge per visit. 

You can access your own home safe at your own convenience without any additional payments. 

With so many safe options available, there’s something to suit every budget and every home – we’ll outline a couple of your options in the next point. 

  1. There’s a Yale Safe for everyone

No matter your budget, you can be sure to find a safe that meets your requirements. 

If you just want to store small items, such as your passport or car keys, the Yale Value Home Safe is an ideal option. Simple to operate with its digital code entry, this wallet friendly safe is sure to keep your valuables safe.

Looking for something slightly more high-tech? 

The Yale Maximum Security Fingerprint Home Safe might be the one for you. Able to store up to 100 fingerprints, you can control exactly who has access to your valuables. The anti-drill plate also provides added protection against theft using tools. 

Do you work from home? The Yale Alarmed Laptop Safe provides unbeatable protection for your laptops and tablets, ensuring your expensive work equipment and confidential data is kept safe. 

After a discrete safe for your valuables? Consider the Yale Underfloor Safe. Fitting in flush with your floorboards, this safe is perfect for storing your valuables in a discrete manner. 

These are just a few examples of the fantastic Yale Safe options available for your home.

So, should you invest in a Yale safe?

To summarise, investing in a Yale safe for your home is potentially one of the most responsible things you could do for you and your family. 

It will not only protect your valuable items from being robbed, but it will also help you keep track of your important documents and sentimental items. If you have any questions about buying a home safe, or would like to discuss your options, the experts at LockShop Direct are happy to help.
