First Safe Deposit Service Launches in Scotland

Date Posted: 29-02-2016

The very first independent safe deposit centre has been opened in Glasgow providing a secure location for people to store their valuable possessions.

After more than a £1 million investment, the new safe deposit centre aptly named Glasgow Vaults has opened its doors to the general public. The site was opened by Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon.

Sturgeon spoke of the new centre with optimism saying "providing a secure place for valuables is very helpful when high street banks no longer appear to offer this service.”

Since banks decided to start closing their safe deposit box facilities, a number of private safe deposit centres have opened to cater for the needs of the local population to store valuable items offsite and in a secure location.

In 2014/15, there were 20,607 break-ins in homes across Scotland increasing the demand for somewhere to store valuable or sentimental possessions away from the home. In the same year, in Greater Manchester there were 46,632 robberies.

For those in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and the surrounding areas, The Safe Deposit Centre Manchester is still the best choice for your needs. With a wide range of boxes starting from just £40, the premises also boasts the only grade 10 vault in the North West.

If you’re looking for a secure location for your valuables, get in touch by email or phone or fill in our online form today.
