A home safe or filing cabinet containing your valuables and important papers may not provide the best protection from burglary, fire or a natural disaster. One of the best and easiest ways to protect hard-to-replace items is to keep them in a safe deposit box at Sonora Bank. These boxes come in various sizes, are fire-proof and are located in our vault. No one has access to your safe deposit box except you or someone you designate as your deputy. What should you place in your box? The rule is, if it’s irreplaceable, it should be in the box. Make photocopies of important legal and financial documents for your use at home, and store all originals in the safe deposit box. Insurance policies, heirlooms, jewels, family records and other valuable or prized items also should be kept in the box.
The contents of your safe deposit box are not insured against loss by this financial institution. For your protection you may wish to obtain your own box content insurance from an insurance company of your own choice.
You should also keep a complete, up-to-date list and description of all property stored in your safe deposit box. This inventory and any other proof of ownership documents should be stored in another location, other than your safe deposit box.
For insurance purposes, it’s a good idea to keep a videotape or photographic record of your home’s contents in the box as well, updated every year or two. Another way to create an inventory is to make a dated list of your home’s contents, including, when possible, the purchase date and price of each item. If you have a home computer, store the list on your hard drive for easy updating, and store a backup disk in your safe deposit box.
