Why Depository Safes Are a Must for Small Business Owners

As a small business, every little bit helps. Every little bit of business, new customers, new relationships, new ways to save money, new ways to cut costs, and new ways to protect your business helps. Something that might not affect a larger company, can directly impact a small business – especially when money is involved.


As a company whose mission is to help our customers protect their belongings, we know how important it is to find solutions that will help you keep your business safe and working at capacity. This includes the way you store your money, make bank runs and protect the ultimate investment – your business.


One solution we find to be great for cash-heavy businesses like hair salons, nail salons, small coffee shops and small restaurants and bars, are drop and depository safes. These safes allow you to have employees to stash cash in a safe place throughout the day, so you don’t have too much in your drawer at one time. While you can leave these safes overnight, we always recommend making deposits at the end of the day, or using additional security to store your money overnight.


Outfitted with lock bolts for security, drop and depository safes feature a slot opening to insert cash, checks and envelopes into. With several options to choose from, we offer a variety of safes to meet the needs of all different types of businesses.

How Data Safes Can be Beneficial to Your Business

Important files, client records, money, and extensive data are all items that, if lost, could be tragic to both the business and clients. These objects or pieces of information could easily go missing, get stolen, or ruined if they are not kept safe. Introducing a safe to your business could help all of these problems go away. In a safe, the important things could be stored, so that they won’t be exposed to water or fire, and they will be kept safe so that only the hands that are supposed to be on them will be. Examples of these important items include: wills, housing abstracts, passports, stocks and bonds, and trademark/copyright paperwork.


In regards to a business, the employees, managers, and especially people higher up in the chain are usually responsible for client and customer information, files, and paperwork specific to the business. Clients expect you to keep their important things safe and secure while in your hands. Depending on the business, the client’s life could be in your hands. Why take the risk of having lost, stolen, or damaged files, items, or information? Get your company a safe today.

Stay Cool and Protected with Dehumidifiers

Hazy, hot and humid are the signature signs of summer. With the warm weather on its way, now is the time to start planning how to stay cool. One thing that most people don’t consider is the importance of having a dehumidifier, not only combat humidity, but also to protect your home or business and your belongings from moisture damage.


High levels of humidity can create a sticky environment due to the excess levels of moisture in the air. This additional dampness to the air does more than just create an uncomfortable environment for people, however. As temperatures fluctuate or the air comes in contact with colder surfaces, this moisture can condense into water in much the same way that steam fogs up the bathroom mirror after your morning shower.


This dampness can wreak havoc on many components in your home, and is particularly problematic in basements, leading to bacterial and fungal growth, corrosion of pipes and metal surfaces – like many safes and storage cabinets – over time, and creating a suitable environment for microorganisms to thrive. It can also create shorts and damaging surges in electrical lines and powered equipment if left unchecked, not to mention warp and swell wooden surfaces and furniture and hasten the aging, yellowing and degradation of documents and photos.


Use of a dehumidifier helps to pull the moisture out of the air and condense it inside the unit, removing it from the ambient air in your home and business and creating a more comfortable and healthy feeling inside. Most newer models can be set using a humidistat, which functions in a similar way as a thermostat to keep moisture levels at a desired setting. This helps to keep your home or office consistently protected from excess humidity, and prevent a constantly running dehumidifier from creating an equally uncomfortable overly arid environment.
