There are many people that believe that since their front doors are locked that they think their belongings are safe. This is simply not true!
The most common times for a theft to happen in your home are from 10am to 3pm, whether you are home or not. While there are thieves of all genders, race, size, etc. the most common thief will be a younger male in their mid to late teens. It is important that you keep your valuables safe.
Safes are a great way to do this. While there are many different kinds of safes, they all have the same purpose in mind- to keep your belongings with you! Many models can be bolted down to a surface or piece of furniture to make sure that people can’t just walk away with the safe that contains your goods.
Not only do homeowners need safes, but so do businesses! It is very common for a business to have larger amounts of cash sitting in a safe because of how much they need to use in a single day. Either way, safes are the way to go to make sure your valuables stay where they belong.
