Safes are a great investment to protect your valuables from any number of issues, but it can be very difficult to determine the good from the bad. With so many varying price points and options it can be extremely difficult to tell what is the best safe for you. That being said, below is a guide to some of the features and options that might help you figure out how to put your money to the best use with some examples as well.
Firstly you want to determine the size of your safe. You do this by taking what you currently have to put in the safe, and add about 20% for additional items you'll collect over the years.
Next you want to determine where you are putting the safe. Measure out the maximum amount of space you want to use, whether it be hidden in a closet, displayed in a living room, or kept out in the garage, know how much space you have to work with.
After that you'll want to determine if there is anything special you want about your safe. Do you want top of the line security with thick plat steel, concrete interior, and heavy duty bolts or locking bars. Do you want a fashionable safe with a gorgeous exterior that matches your decor? Maybe you want a gun safe that is built with tactical precision and practical reliability.
