It is a priority for everyone to keep the valuables they have in their home safe. No one wants to come home or wake-up and find their most precious items gone, stolen or destroyed; and the security concerns when securing your home will greatly differ from security considerations of commercial property owners. As you are probably aware, burglary is often unplanned and spontaneous and is typically considered a crime of opportunity. Thieves rarely want to have to spend hours looking through your home for things to steal for fear of getting caught before getting away with anything. They will know the obvious places to check and that is where they will go first, which is actually good news, as it means that you have an opportunity to outsmart those trying to break into your property and steal from you in the first place. You can aim to hide your valuables in not so obvious locations and, sometimes, even in plain sight. Important to remember is that securing a vacant property is very different to securing the contents of an occupied one. Where you choose to deposit your items will depend on their size. The best places to hide valuables are those which burglars do not want to search through or wouldn’t bother with, including hard to reach places, or in places which appear uninteresting, even messy.
