As summer approaches and families take off on much-needed vacations, it’s crucial to have a plan in place to ensure that your valuables are secure while you enjoy your time away. At Winchester Safe, we understand the importance of peace of mind when safeguarding your belongings. Here are our top 3 summer security tips to help you keep your valuables safe.

Invest in a Reliable Safe

The foundation of good security starts with a high-quality safe. Various options from Winchester Safes can meet your specific storage needs, budget parameters, and space constraints. And more importantly, every Winchester Safe provides robust protection against theft, fire, and other hazards.

Secure Important Documents and Items

Life is crazy, especially in the days leading up to a vacation. Set aside some time before departing to ensure that items you’re not taking with you, like insurance papers, financial records, proprietary documents, and home defense firearms, are stored securely in your safe. Additionally, store valuable items like jewelry and sentimental heirlooms to protect them from theft or damage. It’s even worth making a running checklist of these items so you don’t forget anything as your rush out the door.

Notify Trusted Individuals

Inform trusted neighbors, friends, or family members about your travel plans. Ask them to keep an eye on your property while you’re away. This can deter potential burglars and give you peace of mind that someone is aware of any unusual activity around your home.

And while these are rare cases, you never know when a fire might start on your property from faulty electrical or inclement weather. Having additional eyes on your home can help mitigate damage if you’re not there.

We’re proud to offer so many options to keep you, your family, and your property safe while traveling. Explore our entire range of safes designed to safeguard what matters most.
