Tip One - If an insurance company has requested a safe, always check prior to purchase that your insurance provider agrees with the indicated insurance risk values associated the safe.
Tip Two - Various factors will increase or decrease the insurance risk value.
Tip Three - After the installation of an under-floor or wall safe, you should leave the safe empty and open for one week to allow any moisture to dry out.
Tip Four - You should avoid installing any safe in an area of high moisture or where there may be a risk of flooding, as corrosion could damage the lock.
Tip Five - If the safe becomes awkward to open, you should have it serviced, as this costs around two-thirds less than the cost of opening a jammed safe.
Tip Six - You should not put too much in the safe, as this is a common 'lock out' problem.
Tip Seven - To comply with your insurer's requirements and/or recommendations, it is advised and recommended that all freestanding safes weighing less than 1000kg be securely anchored when installed into your premises.
