There are four points that we should keep in mind before buying a security safe:

1.    Size or internal capacity of the Security Safe
2.    Level of protection required
3.    Security Safe placement
4.    The Price of the Safe



You can select the size of the safe according to the things you are going to put in safe .You can do this by selecting the largest thing you want to save and then measuring its size .Therefore by adding 25% more to the measured size you can select the size of the safe, as the extra 25% helps you in future if you want to store anything extra. The size of the safe may seem large from outside but from inside it may be small because of the presence of so many insulated walls that are there to protect the safe. So it is therefore necessary to check the dimensions from inside before buying it. 

The level of protection depends upon the amount of things you store in it. A good way of finding out what level of cover you require is to speak to your insurance company as they will be able to inform you about the insurance rating of your goods. They are the safest places where a person can store valuables and are designed with burglary protection in mind e.g. for cash in shops or jewelry in shops.

Security Safe placement is dependent on how much space you have available and how nearby the location. All the doors need to be measured that the safe will go through in order to know the final position. If your safe is to be installed on an upper floor or in some basement area so then you should let the delivery company know as sometimes there may be an extra charge for this. Also check the floors of your building if there are large and heavy safes to know that they will be strong enough to take the weight of the safe and its final contents.

Price of the safes depends on the factors stated above. The more features you want your safe to have the more expensive it would be. You should always try to spend as much as you can comfortably afford on a security safe. You should not put high value items in safes that are cheap and are not perfectly safe as this will only attract burglars. But if you want to store just a little amount of cash then small and basic safes are fine.
