The digital age continues to advance, but there are still physical valuables we want to preserve, such as birth certificates. For this reason, possessing a strong and reliable safety deposit box remains more important than having an insurance agent as an option.
Throughout the pandemic, you probably spent most of your time at home and probably had very little to worry about regarding the valuables in your house. However, as things calm down more and more, the time we spend outside continues to increase, and our valuables are again at risk.

Amazon Basics Safe
The Amazon Basics is a good budget safe that offers very good security. It has an 8-gauge steel door and a pry-resistant hinge. It is also an extremely heavy piece, given its smaller size. However, it is not fireproof or waterproof.
The safe has less than two cubic feet of storage space, but it weighs almost 40 pounds. This makes it ideal for smaller valuables like jewelry and small family heirlooms.
This product is made of heavy-duty carbon steel and can be mounted on a wall or the floor like a bank vault. It is opened with a key-less electronic lock and features a shelf on the inside.
A safe’s resistance to the elements, weight (or whether it can be mounted), and lock quality should all be considered when you search for one online. Safes that feature all three tend to be pricier, but they offer the best protection in most circumstances.
It is worth noting that irreplaceable documents and personal papers should be kept in waterproof safes as they are the most susceptible to water damage.
