What is a Safe Deposit Box?

Manchester Safe Deposit Boxes

Safe deposit boxes are known worldwide by a number of different names: 

  • Safe deposit locker
  • Bank safe deposit box
  • Safe deposit box
  • Safety deposit box

They all refer to the same thing and they all serve the same function in providing a secure method of storing your valuables away from your home.

Traditionally, banks provided clients with a bank safe deposit box service where their secure safe deposit lockers were housed in the bank's vault. 

Today, many banks are retracting this service. Customers are now looking for alternative safe deposit options and our Manchester city centre location couldn’t be more convenient!

What can be stored in your safe deposit box?

Items that customers would usually keep in a safe deposit box include jewellery, cash, gold, passports, birth certificates, wills, deeds, photographs, letters and valuable collections.

What can’t be stored in your safety deposit box?

Illegal or dangerous items such as weapons and explosives are strictly not permitted.

The Safe Deposit Centre is registered with the Financial Conduct Authority, we require you to ensure that the contents held in your safe deposit box are not the proceeds of crime or money laundering.

Confidentiality assured

You do not have to disclose what is kept in your box. We ask that you sign our terms and conditions which clearly outline what is acceptable to keep within our deposit boxes. When in the vault we have viewing rooms for your privacy and discretion.
