Metropolitan Safe Deposit Boxes – London

With a history stretching back to the early 1980s, Metropolitan Safe Deposits has been the custodian of our clients’ most precious items for more than 35 years.

As you’d expect from one of the UK’s leading providers of safe deposit services, our three vaults in London’s Knightsbridge, St John’s Wood and Chiswick are protected by layers of industry-leading security, including the latest biometric technology. Every safe deposit box is also individually alarmed and comes with £10,000 of insurance.

You can visit the vaults, free of charge, every day of the week – our long opening hours are just one aspect of the unmatched levels of service delivered by our highly-trained and approachable staff.

The peace of mind that comes from knowing your valuables are safe  is priceless but this accessible, convenient security is also affordable, with safe deposit boxes available from just £95 a year.

Every safe deposit business should undergo external security risk assessments according to Christopher Barrow of Metropolitan Safe Custody.

Safe Deposit Boxes

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

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, in addition a £100 (refundable) key deposit is also charged at time of rental.

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. We are happy to increase your level of insurance if you would like to cover a larger amount.

Convenient access

At Metropolitan Safe Deposits, you can drop in whenever you want between 10am - 4pm Monday to Saturdays. It’s free of charge, too.
