How Much Should I Spend on a Home Safe?

  • 2 min read
When shopping for a home safe, you are likely to see a range of prices anywhere from $100 to several thousands of dollars. In fact, you could walk out of your local big box hardware or discount department store with a cheap safe for $100 or less. You could also probably find an inexpensive safe online, too. But will that cheap safe provide you with all the protection you need? Just like anything else, when it comes to buying a safe, the price you pay is pretty relative to the level of protection the safe will provide.

What’s in a Name?

Mass produced safes are generally the brand names you are going to be most familiar with and see in stores. They are also usually the less expensive safe, too. And for good reason! They are inexpensive for their manufacturers to make because of the corners they cut in making them, like using plastics, cheap metals, and inferior locking mechanisms.

Not all safe manufacturers will mass produce their safes. This means more time is spent on building a higher quality safe than what you will find in a store or on Amazon. You could expect to pay anywhere from several hundred dollars to a couple thousand dollars, depending on the UL-rating, electronic locks, or accessories you choose.

Heavier and Thicker Is Not the Only Thing to Consider

The bigger and heavier the safe, the more expensive it is going to be. Heavier gauge steel makes it more difficult for burglars to break into a safe, so it is well worth the added expense. But you also need to consider how fire resistant a safe is, too. Additional protection against fire or smoke damage to the contents of your safe is also well worth the added price.

Buying a Quality Home Safe Is Easier Than You Think

There is no reason to skimp on quality just to save money on a home safe. Purchasing a high-quality safe is easier than you might think. The price for a Liberty Premium LX Home Safe starts at just under $1,000. But not everyone has a $1,000 to pay upfront for a safe. This could make a cheaper, and inferior safe seem like a better idea. But before deciding to go with a cheap safe, stop and consider Liberty’s financing terms.

With approved credit, you could purchase a high-quality safe from Liberty for under $22 a month for 60 months at 12.99% APR or 12 months interest free. This means there is no need to skimp with protecting your valuables, guns, and important documents with a cheaply made safe. With Liberty’s easy financing, owning a high quality safe can now be a reality.
