What to Look for in a Secure Storage Facility

When it comes to keeping your valuables safe, nothing beats the security and peace of mind that a safe deposit box offers. With the help of secure storage facilities, you can keep personal and items and legal documents safe from theft or damage.

Furthermore, you can protect your wealth from third-party or Government intrusion through keeping your bullion or stocks and bond certificates stashed away from your home.

Since your goal is to keep your valuables safe from every major threat, it’s important to pick the right service provider that can give you peace of mind 24/7. Today, we’ll be going through a checklist of what to look for in a secure storage facility.

Access Security

A truly secure storage facility will employ more than three or more layers of security before anyone can access a safe deposit box. This prevents unauthorised access and ensures that the items tucked away in the facility are not jeopardised in any way.

Pick a facility that offers electronic, biometric and physical (your key) layers of security. Also, make sure that the facility does not keep a copy of the key that matches y our safe deposit box. These entry procedures have been designed to maximise the protection of you, your valuables and irreplaceable documents.


In many cases, you will be responsible for insuring the contents of your safe deposit box. However, there are facilities like Private Vaults Australia (PVA) that provide complimentary insurance for all safe deposit box renters. 

We offer a Complimentary insurance up to $20,000. Insurance provided by certain underwriters at Lloyd’s of London and we offer the ability to increase your insurance of your items in conjunction with our underwriters.


It’s also important to consider the geographic location of your safe deposit box facility that you are going to choose. It should be accessible enough yet secure from and safe from flooding caused by cyclones and tidal surges.

PVA is the only safe deposit box facility servicing North Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Redcliffe is a residential suburb of the Brisbane metropolitan area located within the Moreton Bay Region in the east-north-east of the Redcliffe peninsula. What’s more,  according to the Moreton Bay Regional Council, we are the only flood-free safe deposit box provider in Brisbane.



Security Rating

The main point of renting a safe deposit box is to have a secure space for all your valuables. Therefore, the facility you choose must have the highest security rating to give you peace of mind that your treasured possessions are always safe.

All materials used in the construction of PVA’s vault are installed by experts and are guaranteed to be UL rated. The special reinforced walls and ceilings of the vault and building are also monitored by seismic and vibration sensors plus 24-hour CCTV with class 1 monitoring allowing all-round protection of your treasured items.
