That old saying “you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone” is the only thing you need to think about when you want to put the value of an underground safe into perspective. What is the value of your heirloom jewelry, or coin collection? What about other items that cannot be replaced, but at the same time you would like to be able to have access to them at any time, not just when or if a safe deposit box is available.
According to the FBI, a burglary takes place at least once every minute. More often than not thieves will break into a home when the owners are out or on vacation. This gives these criminals the time and privacy they need to go through every inch of your home looking for anything of value. Especially anything you have hidden in a can or so-called diversion safes. They do not take the time to be neat and tidy either, homes are normally ransacked and when finding your average in home safe it is either broken into or carried off.
When you use an underground safe, it is truly a hidden safe you can trust. Even if you are on vacation and the criminals have a full week to go through your home, safes placed underground are out of sight and undetectable.
Lets take a step back from criminal activities and explore a few other aspects of the value of an underground safe. To start with, it is unfortunate, but homes do catch on fire. Even if a home does not burn to the ground, the smoke and water damage is just a reality. Destroyed and damaged documents, valuables, computer data backups and memory card backups from cell phones can all be avoided by securing them in underground safes. Even the insulated safe boxes and wall safes can only handle a certain amount of heat.
Keeping your valuables hidden underground during catastrophic natural disasters is a real benefit. The danger of very fast developing and moving storms do not always allow the victims time to collect their valuables and often times they don’t even allow for everyone to get to safety. After the storm is over the home may be gone but your in ground safe with your emergency cash will still be there.
If you are running for your life to get to a tornado shelter or under a mattress in your bathtub praying as your home is disappearing around you the safety of your valuables is the last thing on your mind. When the devastation ends and the destruction becomes obvious, that is the moment when you are glad you prepared.
Another value having a hidden safe is the issue of immediate access to your valuables. They are totally under your control. Waiting for the bank to open so you can access your safe deposit box is inconvenient, but what if the bank is gone? What if the bank fails? Having your emergency cash, gold under your own control is invaluable in case of any emergency or crisis.
With the incredible ferocity of some of the recent storms, some banks have just disappeared in the blink of an eye. The vault may still be there, but that is about all that is left.
If your emergency hard cash and gold is safely stored in the vault it is still safe, but don’t even think about getting at it very quickly.
There is absolutely no downside to having an underground safe and there is no end to the list of benefits. Do yourself and your family a favor and keep the peace of mind of knowing your valuables are safely stored.
