Firstly, you need to check that you meet our Halifax safe deposit box eligibility criteria. If you do, register your details on our handy form and one of our friendly colleagues will call you back to make an appointment. You’ll need to complete your safe deposit box application face-to-face with a colleague at our Halifax New Oxford Street, London branch. Please don’t forget to bring a form of ID with you.
There are various items that you’re unable to store within our Halifax safe deposit boxes. These include items such as your will, bank notes or coins still in circulation, living organisms, or any items that are illegal or the proceeds of crime. You can find the full list of prohibited items within Condition 6 of our safe deposit box Ts&Cs (PDF, 453KB).
There are lots of things people chose to keep in their safe deposit box, but most tend to store possessions that are impossible to replace or hold sentimental value. A few examples include:
We don’t provide insurance cover for items stored within a safe deposit box. Our boxes are not an alternative to insurance, so it’s important to consider whether you have adequate insurance before storing any valuables with us. You should consider getting items such as jewellery valued before you take out insurance to ensure you’re covered for their full replacement value.
Our Halifax safe deposit boxes provide state-of-the-art security for your valuables; however, if the worst were to happen, then except in the limited circumstances set out in our Ts&Cs (PDF, 453KB), items are stored at your sole risk.
To ensure your valuables are as safe as possible, our safe deposit boxes can be held in the name of one person only, so if the safe deposit box is in your name, only you may access the viewing room and box. There are limited exceptions to this rule, which are covered in our full Ts&Cs (PDF, 453KB) if you’d like to find out more. The safe deposit box can only be accessed at our New Oxford Street branch during its opening hours.
If you die, the person administering your estate will need to produce Grant of Representation before they can remove any items from your safe deposit box. Read condition 13 of our full Ts&Cs (PDF, 453KB).
Halifax safe deposit boxes aren’t waterproof. You should use waterproof packaging if, you think your items could be harmed by water. It’s worth noting that we won’t be liable for any damage to items stored in the safe deposit box caused by any acts outside our reasonable control (‘force majeure events’), such as storm damage. Read our full Ts&Cs (PDF, 453KB) for more information.
There are three different prices, depending on what size safe deposit box you choose:
All prices are inclusive of VAT.
There is only one annual fee for hiring a safe deposit box. This fee depends on the size of the safe deposit box you choose.
There are a few other instances where you may be charged additional costs. For example, if we are required to drill into the safe deposit box lock, because you’ve lost the keys or you don’t return both keys to us at the end of the hire period. Read through our full Ts&Cs (PDF, 453KB) for more information.
We don’t offer a jewellery valuation service, but there are many jewellers on the high street that can arrange a professional valuation for you. It’s worth bearing in mind that they usually charge for this service.
If you lose the keys to your safe deposit box, we will need to drill into the box to unlock it and then replace it with a new lock and keys. You may be required to cover the costs involved in this. A new set of keys can then be provided. Read condition 16 of our Ts&Cs (PDF, 453KB) for more information.
Our safe deposit boxes come in three different sizes:
