HomeJewellery InsuranceSafe Deposit Box Insurance

A safe deposit box at a bank or other professional secure facility, is a secure method of keeping valuables such as jewellery safe, especially if you have a large collection of items that are worn or used infrequently.

You may find however, that the bank will not insure the contents of your box and in the event there is a break-in at the bank you will not be covered for items that are stolen. This event may seem unlikely but even with their high tec security, banks and other facilities are targeted by thieves and thus it is essential that insurance protection is sought.

At Assetsure, we can arrange insurance for contents of safety deposit boxes against theft and a full range of perils, we will cover jewellery and other items on request.

We realise that valuable items are not kept in the bank all the time and naturally, there will be periods throughout the year when items will be removed for general usage. We can agree a limit with you in respect of items that may be taken out of the bank at any one time or for instances when larger amounts are removed, for example a family celebration, a call to our office is usually all it takes to extend cover.

We will provide quotations for residents of the United Kingdom only and all safety deposit boxes must be located within the United Kingdom at a known establishment. When cover is extended to cover items away from the bank, you will be protected on a worldwide basis providing no trip abroad exceeds 60 days in duration.
