No one ever told me I needed an underfloor safe with a deposit feature. In fact, I never knew such a thing existed. The cash business I ran for about 10 years took a large number of coins and bills on a daily basis and also retained valuable financial information from customers on the site. This should have been kept in a safe overnight. The kind of person looking to finance a drug hit must not have associated my busy business with cash and luckily I was never mugged or robbed, but to this day I cringe at the thought of what could have happened.
A safe for your business?
Here’s a good tip right away! You’ll need a security safe if you’re running a cash business, period. It’s fair to say that most companies won’t invest in one until a break-in occurs. A brick and mortar business on Main Street will accept payment in the form of card, coin and bill payments and some customers may pay on account. While the checkout lot will deposit card payments to your bank, you can take the cash home at night or drop it off at the business to deposit the next morning, in an envelope, under a desk, or somewhere else. You are asking for a robbery to take place, be it a hold-up or a robbery. For this reason, you must have a top-of-the-line security measure and protect your business revenue. Skip this precaution and your day will come.
The best safe for your business
Which or if you opt for both types has its advantages and disadvantages. In favor of the underfloor variety is that it is hidden, occupies less space and of course it is fireproof if it is embedded in concrete. Although underfloor safes are very popular, they tend to be restricted in size and are not practical for storing some items, such as cash registers. I like underfloor safes because they are hidden.
An underfloor safe with a cash delivery feature is called a Bank Safe. The cash deposit service allows you to deposit money until a reasonable person, such as a manager or owner, can reconcile the accommodation and deposit it in the bank. As cash accumulates during the day, a business may find it prudent to sweep out boxes of extra cash and place it in the safe. Once again, a built-in safe is very practical insofar as it is hidden, does not take up space and is fireproof. Nightclubs, hotels and bars that go out of business late at night benefit from the security and simplicity of underfloor safes with a cash delivery feature.
