I have always rented a safe deposit box at my bank. Due to the branch closing, I ended up at Citysafes. I thought it would be much more expensive than at the bank, but the price is about the same, and I didn't have to take out any other products either. No waiting list, no additional requirements... just renting a safe deposit box.

I wasn't familiar with CitySafes, but after a major fire in the neighborhood, it no longer felt safe to keep contracts, jewelry, and our childhood photos at home. I searched for a reliable provider of bank vaults and found CitySafes. It feels secure now that everything is well stored.

The person in charge of the branch in Hasselt explained everything to me in detail and in a professional manner. It's always nice to work with friendly and professional people.

You must be in possession of a valid European ID and an IBAN. At CitySafes, the following documents are valid as proof of identity:

Can I rent a safe deposit box together with someone else?

Yes, you can appoint your partner or a family member as co-tenant. Your co-tenant will have access to the safe-deposit box just like you, even if you are not there. Main tenant and co-tenant are equals on the contract. Adding a co-tenant can only be done in person at the office itself. You must both be present with valid proof of identity to do so.

Is it possible to rent a safe for business?

Yes, you can. To do this, you need to bring a certified extract from the Chamber of Commerce to your appointment. This extract may not be older than 3 months. This extract must show your name.

We also ask you to fill in an End Interested Party Declaration and bring it along to the appointment if you want to rent the safe-deposit box for business purposes. You can also fill it out at the branch during the tour. And you should also bring your company’s VAT number and IBAN to the appointment.

If all documents are in order, you can rent your safe business.

You can visit your safe deposit box free of charge and without restriction on fixed safe deposit box days. Would you like to visit your safe deposit box outside the regular safe deposit box days? This is possible by appointment. CitySafes will charge € 35,- including 21% VAT for administration costs.

Should you lose one or both keys, you will also be charged for this. The cost for one lost key is €300,- excluding VAT and €600,- excluding VAT for two lost keys.

Do I always retain 100% ownership of my goods?

You remain the legal and economic owner of your property at all times. It does not matter whether you keep your properties in our depot, or in your own safe deposit box. Unlike in most banks, your properties are not part of the estate in case of bankruptcy.
