A drop safe can save your business from losing money during a robbery

February 4th, 2009

A drop safe is designed to allow cash, small objects and enevelopes to be deposited into it without opening the safe.  If your business handles a lot of cash or other valuables that you don’t need access to during the day, a drop safe could save them from being taken during a robbery.  If you deal with cash, deposit large amounts periodically throughout the day so that the cash register doesn’t contain all of your money.  If a robbery takes place, tell the robber you don’t have the combination to the safe or instruct your employees to do this.   The robber has no choice but to settle for what’s in the cash register.

Drop safes are designed for easy deposits, and they have baffles inside so that the contents can’t be “fished” out with a wire or some other mechanism.  But they are not as secure as a regular safe, so you should move your cash to a burglar proof safe or the bank at night.  Drop safes are available in a number of different styles – some have a slot on the top, some have a “hopper” you open (like a corner mailbox), and some have a rotating drum on top.  The slotted types are best for cash.  If you need to store larger items, the hopper type is best.  So why not add some extra security for your business buy using a drop safe?  For more information on the drop safe.
