Economics/Security measures for Safe Deposit Locker Facilities.


Dear Dr Michael‎‎

Safe Deposit Locker Facilities are provided to Banking customers to put their valuable belongings viz Jewelry, Cash etc by Private, Public Sector Banks. Banks charge their customers for the Lockers Facilities.

In a worst to worst scenario, How do the Banks do risk management in case if there happens Locker robbery, Scams etc so that the customers get back their valuables kept in the Lockers ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

A few banks may offer limited theft/damage insurance, but generally you'll have to buy your own.  The only protection they offer are the strength of the safe and the policies that keep people out of it.  Other than that, they're just renting-out space in their safety deposit boxes and not guaranteeing the protection of the contents.  If you don't believe a bank is offering sufficient protection to justify the cost of rental, then go somewhere else.
