Things to consider when buying a safe

What is the purpose of the safe?

Do you need to protect important papers like a birth certificate? Are you protecting Grandma’s antique wedding ring or perhaps a valuable coin collection? The answer to this question will help decide what kind of safe you need. It could be as simple as a fire rated home safe all the way to a TL30 Jeweler’s safe.


This is probably the second most important consideration. You really do not need to invest hundreds or thousands of dollars to protect some important papers. But you want to spend more than a couple hundred dollars to keep that $10,000 coin collection from “walking” away.

How much room you need?

How big are the items you wish to store in the safe? Are you allowing for adding more items in the future?

Where will the safe be located?

Are you going to want the safe located in a bedroom closet, a basement office, or in a garage? You probably will not to get that 1000 pound safe up to the 2nd floor of your house. You also will not get a safe 60 x 30 x 30 safe in to a closet.

Any special features?

Do you want an electronic push button combination? Is a key and a combination required? How about a dehumidifier or internal lights? Perhaps an internal locking drawer or cabinet. All of those needs can most likely be able to be provided if considered before looking for a safe.

A final thought…

Please keep in mind, you usually get what you pay for. Quality needs to be paid for. A big box store will not be able to help you correctly choose a safe. And most importantly will not be able to service your purchase. Most of the mass produced home safes sold in those stores are for protecting papers from fire. A “safe” is not always a “safe.”
