Home safes could be a worthwhile investment for students, or a way for landlords to make their rental properties more attractive in a competitive housing market.
The Association of British Insurers says students have the highest average value of possessions per person in the whole of the UK, at £2,600.
Many of these belongings – cameras, phones, mp3 players and laptops – could easily be placed in home safes when not needed.
And as student-dominated residential areas are often targeted by thieves who know the value of the goods that are likely to be inside, fitting security safes could be a wise step for landlords keen to protect their tenants’ finances against any sudden impact that could leave them behind on their rent.
Nick Starling, director of general insurance at the ABI, says: “By taking commonsense measures to safeguard possessions, and considering taking out contents insurance for cover, students can ensure they are not left paying a high price if valuables are lost, stolen or damaged.”
However, with months of dissertation work often stored on laptops, many students would happily pay extra for access to security safes, rather than risk their end-of-course project disappearing into the sunset.

Our new head office is now complete. The £1.1 million extension was a major investment into the security industry and houses not only brand new offices, but an extended helpdesk and 2800 square foot showroom.
We are opening our doors on the 22nd September to current customers, local businesses and anyone with an interest in physical security.
As well as the deputy Mayor, some of the biggest names in the security industry will be in attendance to demonstrate the latest innovations on the market.
If you can’t make it on the day but would like to see pictures of our new building, you can request Associated Security’s June newsletter by emailing email@example.com

Each year we sponsor a local football team. This year it was Middleton boys under 14’s, and what a season they have had so far! We heard from the team that they are the proud winners of the North Bury Main Cup and have finished runners up in the North Bury Premiere League Division.
Because of the seasons success, they have been asked by Stoke FC to take part in an invitation only football tournament, so the club can look out for any future David Beckham’s or Wayne Rooney’s! This is a really great achievement – we like to think that our name on their shirts have brought them a little luck!

As part of Climate Week this year we are taking part by encouraging all staff to either walk, take public transport or car share for their journey to and from work every day that week.
We are really hoping habits will be formed, so as to make a positive step towards reducing the carbon required to staff our depots!
