Winter Security

The days might be getting colder but love is warming our hearts it seems. Figures show that almost 50% of proposals happen over the Christmas period with more people getting down on one knee in December than any other month of the year.

They could be taking the opportunity while spending more time with loved ones over the holiday period or it could be the lure of getting a great festive deal on an engagement ring, either way this can lead to a huge increase in jewellers takings and thus an increased need to assess security. Increased flow of cash through tills and extra stock in storage can lead to a potentially major headache for both high street and independent jewellers. But it doesn’t have to. Deposit safes and jewellery safes can offer the perfect solutions to ensure that all cash and jewellery can be securely stored day and night.

Dealing with Extra Cash on Site

Deposit safes allow your staff to deposit cash from the tills into the safe but once in there, only those with permission can remove it again. Deposit safes come in a wide range of sizes suitable for any storage location. Using a deposit safe will ensure that only a certain amount of cash float remains in the tills while the extra can be locked securely away, giving you that extra peace of mind.

Storing Extra Stock

To keep up with all of the jewellery, especially engagement rings, flying off the shelves in December, you’ll need to keep a great deal of stock on site to ensure your shelves are never empty. Leaving expensive stock in a storeroom can leave it open to theft and most insurers won’t cover the damage if your storeroom didn’t have sufficient security.

Cash rated jewellery safes can be used to store your stock until it is ready to be put in cabinets on the shop floor. You can decide from numerous locking options including a regular key lock or innovative fingerprint (biometric) technology.
