1. What is a safety deposit box?

A safety deposit box is an individually stored container held within a high secure safe or vault which is only accessible to the key holder. A safety deposit box is used to store valuable possessions that an individual may not wish to store at home or at their place of work. The renter agrees to pay an annual fee for using the box, which can only be accessed and opened by successfully navigating a number of security levels including bio-metric security.

2. Why do I need a safety deposit box?

If you are concerned about the security of your valuables at home or in the workplace, you should consider renting a safety deposit box. The installation of home security provides only limited protection, since Homeowners can be forced to open safes under threat of physical violence. In addition, your home contents insurance costs can be reduced by the use of a safety deposit box.

3. What happens if I lose my keys or access card to the facility?

You will be issued with two identical keys at the time of rental. If you lose one or both keys, you should inform Nashville Vaults immediately. You will then need to make an appointment with us, to ensure you are present when our company locksmith drills open your box. You will be responsible for the cost of the locksmith and any subsequent repairs that may be required.
