  • Advisory : Buying Safe & Consideration

    Hi Guys,any recommendations for a good safe? Dun mind "Hotel" safe,not looking for big floor standing safe.Just came back from NTUC,and saw some Morris & titan safes.Dun like the designs,looks cheapo..

    NTUC is never the place to buy safes which are safe...it's just to direct the person stealing to where your valuables are and carry it away.

        Unless you mount the safe into the wall, it might be safe. Otherwise the small safe sold by NTUC or Carrefour can be removed/carried away easily

            well, most sg house cannot place a bank safe without taking too much room. I was offered a safe size of a fridge for A$500, even after hiring a safe technician, they come, works out to be cheap. But it is organise your own delivery. You buy from the yard

            Anyhow, if want a safe, dont buy cheap safe. No weight, no fire rating, no safety. I have seen one safe opened with a crowbar

                Safe Deposit Box

                Since we r on tis thread, then allow me to discuss tis. How abt those safe deposit boxes in security firms like CISCO/banks? R they very safe n how much is the cost of rental? Mos importantly, how much hassle is it to bring our watches/jewellery in n out?

                Let's share. Thks.

                  Good point and I ever thought of that also.

                  Recently CISCO had promotes a Safe Deposit Boxes where you can access your valuable stuff by day and by night 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.

                  But, if I leave my watches in the safe deposit box I think I am gonna to miss my watch very much.

                  Unless we are talking about you are owning many many watches. Otherwsie, don't you find it troublesome to wear a watch and you have to visit Cisco first

                  Cheers,

                    Yeah, of course I am referring to those who own not just many, many. But many, many EXPENSIVE ones. Then again, it will depend on how an individual deem what expensive is. If you've been here long enuf, you'll know what I mean. Can u imagine some here who used "more than one thousand" dollars watches as "daily beaters" !

                    Well to me, my daily beater watches should not be more than a few hundred dollars.

                    Its nt important anyway. But yes, you'll miss ur watches n there is some form of hassle in retrieving too. But wldn't tis gives u a peace of mind? I remember there was a case of burglary early tis year and it was reported that the victim(house owner) lost about 7-8 watches amounting to close to $100k.

                    So how?

                      you have to bolt to the floor and wall. That one i hear must use car to drag out if really want. I looking for a midsize safe, so I still looking around.

                      As for weight, I think you need a ute to cart one of those babies home

                      if you can access your deposit box 24/7, it is worth while considering that you put there instead. Of course there is pros and cons.
                      Pros
                      you can have your valuables away from home when you are not at home
                      your items are protected by some decent protection

                      Cons
                      ongoing cost and nothing to show for it
                      you have to visit cisco to take things out

                      And the list goes on.

                          A medium size safe got standard one fire proof ard 200 kg ard 8++ .

                          I rather get 1 and put in home . eng eng can open and see the contents inside .

                          If the burglar wanna drag the safe down 2 flights of stairs sure a lot of commotion and need at least 6 to 8 ppl .
