Midlands first high security safe deposit box facility opens in nottingham

NOTTINGHAM’s first safe deposit box facility has opened in the Lace Market allowing private individuals and businesses the opportunity to safeguard their most valued possessions in a secure vault, protected by cutting edge security including biometric scanners.

Nottingham Vaults has invested £1 million in its safe deposit lockers based in a 2,000 sq ft unit on Stoney Street. The initial opening will see 2,000 boxes available, with the facility having the capacity to hold up to 5,000.

Clients can visit the vault seven days a week, 362 days a year, with unlimited free access. The facility offers various box sizes to suit all client requirements, with rental from less than £3 per week and discounts available for long-term rentals.

Nottingham Vaults is run by parent company Merrion Vaults, Europe’s largest independently owned safe deposit box company. Established in 2013, the company was founded by entrepreneurs Seamus Fahy and David Walsh after they identified strong demand for the service.

Co-founder Seamus Fahy said:

“We are delighted to be opening in Nottingham – marking our first safe deposit facility not just in the city, but in the wider Midlands region. Many major banks no longer offer customers a safe deposit service, and as such the introduction of our vaults around the country has been met with huge appetite as companies and individuals look to secure their valued possessions in a safe place. We’re expecting to see customers from all over the Midlands region make use of our unique and first-class service to ensure the safety of their valuables.

“We’ve done everything we possibly can to ensure that our vaults are the most secure in Europe, ensuring they have been diamond core drill tested and are explosion proof to meet the highest industry standards.

As a member of the Safe Deposit Federation (SDF), Nottingham Vaults meets the highest standards in both security and privacy. The facility will be manned on-site by highly trained professionals ensuring 24/7 protection. The Nottingham opening is the first with an automatic system, meaning that customers can access their box without the assistance of staff, but still under their secure measures.

Access to the facility is granted through a navigation of personal identification, biometric scanners, customer code and digital photo recognition – a level of security and technology which surpasses the standards set by banks.

Seamus continued:

“From the beginning, we wanted to make sure that the business model was accessible to any clientele, and so different size boxes are available to suit everyone from the individual to large businesses – plus every customer is offered complimentary insurance of £10,000 per box. Our smaller boxes are affordable at less than the price of a takeaway coffee per week, and are suitable for storing cash, small valuables or jewellery. The mid-range boxes are designed for housing papers, house deeds and other important documents as well as bulkier valuables, while the larger boxes are ideal for collectable items and valuable artwork – all in a convenient city centre location.”

Nottingham Vaults is fully insured by Lloyds of London and will also offer a buying and selling service on site for gold bullion, ensuring that transactions are carried out in a secure environment.

Since opening its first vault in Dublin, Merrion Vaults has expanded across England and Scotland, with the Nottingham facility marking the fifth opening and the latest step in expansion plans for the firm.
