Is my bank Safe Deposit Box FDIC insured?
If you have a bank Safe Deposit Box, it is NOT insured - banks don't offer that and that's why we don't recommend using banks for your Safe Deposit Box needs. Guardian Vault has gone the extra mile for you by 1) paying a 3rd party to help us get accredited, and 2) as a result, we are able to, and have been approved to partner with SDBIC (Safe Deposit Box Insurance Company) to provide you with up to $500,000 in insurance for your valuables.
How does insurance help me?
Insurance helps you because no Safe Deposit Box is completely protected from theft, fire, flood or other loss or damage (although a Safe Deposit Box with Guardian Vault had to pass the standards of Global Risk Evaluations (GREvL) in order to be given the opportunity to be able to provide our customers with Insurance). We provide ALL customers of Guardian Vault with $5,000 of insurance coverage at no charge! Additional insurance is available for purchase for up to $500,000. This Insurance has been issued by one of the top 10 largest insurance companies in the world: SDBIC (Safe Deposit Box Insurance Company). Click here to learn more about them. In fact, we were the first to pass these high standards in Washington State.
Privacy is very important to me. Will anyone know I am a customer? By “anyone” I mean the government, my spouse, my bank, my attorney, the IRS, etc.?
Your privacy is very important to us. Our policy is that we do not disclose information about our customers including if they are customers of ours or not. We are also not required to report to any government agency that you have a Safe Deposit Box with us.
Do I need to be a permanent resident to open a Safe Deposit Box with Guardian Vault and what form of identification do I need to provide?
You do not need to be a permanent resident to open a Safe Deposit Box with Guardian Vault. We ask you to provide a name and contact information (unless you choose to remain anonymous) and a valid form of payment such as cash, check, credit/debit, bank issued money order, cashier’s check, or a gift card that has been registered online.
Do you need any of my personal information like an SSN (Social Security Number) or date of birth?
We do not and will never ask for your Social Security Number nor your Date of Birth.
What do you require if I want to be anonymous?
Your phone number or your email
A "refundable" $300 deposit upfront
A fingerprint is optional
Anonymous Customers receive the same insurance as Known Customers.
Is my anonymous upfront deposit refundable?
Yes, you will get your entire upfront $300 deposit back when your rent payment is up to date and both keys are returned.
If I choose to be an Anonymous Customer, how do I pay?
We are more than happy to accept cash and checks as a form of payment if you are an Anonymous Customer. If you would like to pay by gift card, the card must first be registered online and eligible for online purchases.
I found it difficult to add my kids and my spouse to my box at the bank. Do you make it easier?
Yes, Primary Customers can add Secondary Customers and Beneficiaries to their Account with Guardian Vault without these people being present.
Since I get 2 keys, does this mean I can only have one other Secondary Customer on my Safe Deposit Box?
There is no limit to the number of Secondary Customers the Primary Customer may add to her/his Safe Deposit Box (this is great for Businesses with multiple Employees). However, Secondary Customers must have one of the two keys to access the contents in the box. The Staff at Guardian Vault cannot access any Safe Deposit Boxes on site as once the box is rented, the Primary Customer is given both existing keys.
At the bank I cannot remove someone from my box without them being present. Can I add and remove people from my Safety Deposit Box with Guardian Vault without being present?
Yes, the Primary Customer may remove a Secondary Customer or Beneficiary without that person being present.
What if I have an emergency and need to enter after hours? For example, if my Passport is in my Safe Deposit Box at Guardian Vault and I need to access it on a Sunday?
We offer 24/7 concierge service - if there is an emergency, we will let you in after hours. We ask that you text and then call the phone number. There is no charge for this service, we just ask that people limit this to emergencies only.
What happens if the power goes out at Guardian Vault? Can I still access my box?
Yes, a Guardian Staff Member will be able to let you into the vault manually in the event of a power outage. You will be responsible for bringing your Safe Deposit Box key.
What if there is a fire at Guardian Vault?
Our boxes are fire resistant and UL Listed (what does this mean in layman’s terms?).
Underwriters Laboratory (U.L) is a product safety testing and certification organization that develops standards for many products, materials, components, assemblies, tools and equipment. They also certify and test many types of safes to make sure they meet certain requirements for fire and theft. And Guardian Vault passes their standards.
Does your facility allow for wheelchair accessibility?
Yes, our facility is ADA accessible and has a wheelchair ramp in front of the building.
