Safe Deposit Boxes

Since 2015 we have been East Anglia’s only private safe deposit box facility. Thanks to our well established security and long running history of handling high value items, we have been able to offer this service at a time when major high street banks close all of their storage services. Intended initially for the storage of jewellery, we now have five sizes of box available giving a solution to almost all requirements. The safe deposit box units are housed within our vault which was built in the 1980s and has since had significant security upgrades. Our premises are surrounded by occupied residential properties, covered by 24 hour CCTV and is only 0.1 miles from Norwich’s Bethal Street police station.

You are issued with a client key at the time that you take out a rental agreement with us. There is only one copy of this key therefore if you lose it we are required to employ the services of a locksmith to break into the housing unit which holds your box.

If you cannot gain access to the inner lock which secures the opening of the box itself then, and we are required to cut the lock, there is a £10 charge to do so.
