What Is a Lockbox?

A lockbox, sometimes called a safe-deposit box, is a sturdy metal container designed to provide individual security and protection for valuable items, important documents, and other small objects. These secure boxes are an excellent option for individuals who prefer to keep their important documents and valuable possessions in a physical form rather than relying solely on digital storage.

Differences Between a Traditional Safe-Deposit Box and a Self Storage Lockbox

The traditional safe-deposit box, or safety deposit box, is stored in a highly secure vault of a federally insured bank or credit union. Typically, when you rent a safe-deposit box from a bank, you will receive one key, while a designated employee keeps the other guard key for added security. Remember that you can only access a safe-deposit box during the bank branch’s business hours.

Our secure storage facility is enclosed by a fully fenced perimeter and outfitted with video surveillance cameras for added protection. Additionally, access to the facility is electronically gated and requires a unique pass code for each individual.

Items To Store in a Lockbox

The standard dimensions of the largest lockbox typically measure 10 inches by 10 inches with a depth of two feet. Due to this limited space, one must be particular when selecting items to store. Consider the following items for placement in a lockbox.

  • An inventory of your home’s contents for homeowner’s insurance policy purposes
  • Birth certificates and adoption paperwork
  • Business contracts
  • Citizenship paperwork
  • Coin and stamp collections
  • Copies of medical directives
  • Copies of powers of attorney
  • Copies of wills
  • Family keepsakes and collectibles
  • Hard drives and flash drives
  • House deeds and car titles
  • Marriage licenses and certificates
  • Military discharge paperwork and records
  • Physical stock and bond certificates
  • School transcripts and diplomas
  • Sensitive documents you don’t want roommates, children, relatives, and visitors to find

What Should Not Be Stored in a Lockbox

Lockboxes are a great way to secure small, valuable belongings, but certain items should not be kept in one. These include:

  • Cash
  • Illegal items
  • Medical directives
  • Powers of attorney
  • Revocable living wills
