Is Your Safe Too Small? 3 Considerations

  • 2 min read
Once you buy a safe, you might find after a few years that it’s too small to meet your family’s needs. Perhaps there were many things you want to protect in your safe that you didn’t think of while you were safe-shopping. At Liberty Safe, we believe the purchase of a safe can be a once-in-a-lifetime purchase if you do it right. Here are three considerations before you buy a safe for your home:

1. Do You Plan to Own More Guns?

When buying a gun safe, you will want to consider how many guns you plan to eventually own. The cost to purchase a safe with more gun capacity may only cost a bit more than a lower-capacity model. The benefit of choosing a larger safenow could simply save money in the future. You would also only have to deal with one delivery charge and arranging your schedule to be present for delivery and installation.

2. Your Future Storage Needs

A safe can be used to store and protect so many other items than your guns. Important documents may not take up much space in your safe and you might have other items you want to keep safe from theft or fire, including:

  • Car keys
  • Coin or stamp collections
  • Credit cards
  • Emergency cash
  • Jewelry
  • Laptops or portable hard drives
  • Medications
  • Mementos of your kids’ childhood
  • Photographs and photo albums
  • Small electronics
  • Wallets or pocketbooks
  • Work tools

When you buy a safe, don’t forget to make a list of all the things you would like to store in it today or in the future.

3. How Much Installation Space Do You Have for a Safe?

When shopping for a larger safe, you should already know how much installation space you need. This information will help your safe dealer explain what your options are for a larger safe. Because everyone’s space needs vary, Liberty Safe offers a large variety of safe sizes ranging from safes that can be tucked away in a cabinet to safes that measure six feet tall.

When it comes to buying a safe, it’s always a good idea to buy the biggest safe your installation space and budget will allow. This can help ensure you are prepared for future storage needs. It will also ensure you can continue to enjoy your purchase for years to come.
