Customer Access Control System Brompton

Customer Access Control System Brompton

11 April 2016

Following the successful upgrade of the customer access control system at our St Johns Wood office, we are investing a further £120,000 in the upgrade of the Brompton (Knightsbridge) office to the same system.

Safe Deposit Boxes

Security comes in more than 20 different sizes at our London vaults in Knightsbridge and St John’s Wood.

There are small safe deposit boxes for keepsakes, jewellery and passports, medium-sized boxes that typically accommodate items such as gold bars, laptops and legal papers; and large-sized boxes and walk-in vaults that can house a lifetime’s collection of antiquities, coins or stamps - you could fit a double bed in the largest one.

Prices range for boxes from less than £100 to over £2,000 for a year.

Peace of mind

Safety is the obvious reason for entrusting us with these items but underlying it is a less tangible benefit: peace of mind. At a time when domestic burglaries are becoming increasingly commonplace and the threat of violence is all too real, a safe deposit box offers an answer to the risks – and avoids the need to pay soaring insurance premiums.

Each of our boxes comes with £10,000 of insurance, underwritten by Lloyds of London. We are happy to increase your level of insurance if you would like to cover a larger amount.

Convenient access

Many banks no longer offer safe deposit box facilities. If they do, you have to make an appointment and are restricted to banking hours. At Metropolitan Safe Deposits, you can drop in whenever you want between 8.30am (in St John’s Wood) and 9am (in Knightsbridge) and 7pm Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm on Saturdays and 10am to 4pm on Sundays. It’s free of charge, too.
