Ich war heute bei CitySafes und habe ein Schließfach gemietet. Die Räumlichkeiten sind sehr geschmackvoll, die Tresoranlage beeindruckend und der Mitarbeiter hat sich sehr viel Zeit für mich genommen und alle meine Fragen zur Sicherheit beantwortet. Ich freue mich, dass ich einen guten Ort für meine Wertsachen gefunden habe.

Transparenter faierer Preis und jährlich kündbar. Das ist keine Selbstverständlichkeit und habe ich auch schon ganz anders gesehen. Ich bin sehr zufrieden!

Preis-Leistung bei CitySafes ist wirklich sehr gut und ich habe mich vor Ort selber von der Sicherheit überzeugt. Ich habe dort ein Schließfach gemietet und meine Wertsachen untergebracht. Jetzt kann ich ganz in Ruhe in den Urlaub fahren :-)

Da bei mir im Haus eingebrochen wurde, konnte ich nicht mehr ruhigen Gewissens das Haus verlassen. CitySafes ist super, günstige Preise und sehr nette Mitarbeiter, die sich viel Zeit nehmen und einem alles in Ruhe erklären. So freue ich mich direkt doppelt, auf den nächsten Schließfachbesuch und darüber, dass ich jetzt wieder ohne schlechtes Gefühl aus dem Haus gehen kann.

Der erste Eindruck sehr moderner Empfangsbereiche und beeindruckender Tresorbereich inkl. aller Überwachungselemente. Ebenso ist die problemlose Abwicklung der Anmietung eines Schließfaches erwähnenswert. Sehr schön das auch private Zimmer zur Verfügung stehen für die diskrete Sortierung etc. der persönlichen Unterlagen und Wertgegenstände. Auch der monatliche Beitrag ist angepasst und gerechtfertigt.

Ich bin beeindruckt von dem Sicherheitskonzept von CitySafes und habe dort direkt ein Schließfach angemietet. Die Räumlichkeiten sind echt schön und die Tresoranlage sieht sehr sicher aus, was mir ein gutes Gefühl gibt. Die Mitarbeiter sind nett und haben sich super viel Zeit für mich genommen. Ich kann CitySafes auf jeden Fall nur weiterempfehlen.

Frequently asked questions in Cologne.

How does the rental of a safe deposit box in Cologne work?

To rent a safe deposit box in Cologne, make an appointment directly on the website or by phone on 0800-5580011 and get advice at a branch of your choice. We will show you how we work, what sizes are available and, if you wish, you can rent a safe deposit box right away.

How much does it cost to rent a safe deposit box at the CitySafes branch in Cologne?

CitySafes has a wide range of safe deposit boxes that you can rent for as little as €8.95 per month. A complete overview of all available formats at CitySafes Cologne can be found on the branch’s website.

How long does it take before I can access my safe deposit box?

Make an appointment via our website or contact us by telephone on 0800-5580011 and we will arrange an appointment with you within a few days. Do you urgently need a safe deposit box? Then contact us as soon as possible on 0800-5580011 and let us know how urgent your request is so that we can discuss the possibility of an appointment within 24 hours. Bring your desired safe deposit box contents with you directly, as you will be able to use your safe deposit box immediately after the inspection tour.

How secure is it to rent a safe deposit box?

Your safe deposit box is located in a high-security safe that fulfils the strict requirements of security category 4+. This is the highest security category in Germany. The fireproof and burglar-proof safe deposit boxes are guarded around the clock.

How high is the insurance cover for my safe deposit box?

The contents of your safe deposit box are insured for 10,000 euros as standard from safe deposit box type “Small”. You have the option of increasing your insurance cover to €45,000 (annual surcharge of €48.00), €90,000 (annual surcharge of €99.00) or €150,000 (annual surcharge of €148.50) at any time. The cover applies per safe deposit box. It is also possible to rent several lockers and distribute your valuables across them to achieve higher cover.

What are the conditions for renting a safe deposit box at CitySafes Cologne?

You must be in possession of a valid European proof of identity and an IBAN. The following documents are valid as proof of identity at CitySafes:

EU passport
Valid residence permit for Germany
German identity card
German driving licence (after the first visit)

Can I share a locker with someone else?

Yes, simply nominate a family member or partner as a co-tenant. The co-tenant will receive the keys to the locker just like you and is authorised to access the locker in your absence. The contract therefore treats you as an equal main tenant. A co-tenant must be added in the presence of the tenant and co-tenant in your branch. Both the tenant and co-tenant must be in possession of a valid identification document, e.g. an identity card, at this appointment.

Is it possible to hire safe deposit boxes for business purposes?

Of course. To do so, you must bring an extract from the company register with you to your appointment. The extract must not be more than three months old and must contain your name.

Alternatively, you can also bring your company’s VAT number and IBAN with you to the appointment. If all the documents are in order, nothing stands in the way of you renting your business safe deposit box from CitySafes.

Are there any other costs in addition to the safe deposit box hire?

You pay a one-off deposit of 85 euros per safe deposit box for the keys and lock. If you return all the keys at the end of the rental contract and no payments are outstanding, the deposit will be refunded to you within one month.

You have free and unrestricted access to your safe on opening hours. Would you like to use your safe outside of the regular opening hours? This is also possible by arrangement. In this case, CitySafes charges an administration fee of 35 euros.

If you lose one or both keys, you will be charged the costs. This amounts to 300 euros excluding VAT for one lost key and 600 euros excluding VAT for two lost keys.

Do I always retain 100% ownership of my safe deposit box contents?

You remain the legal and beneficial owner of the safe deposit box contents at all times. It makes no difference whether you store your belongings in a bank safe deposit box or in your own bank vault. Unlike most banks, in the event of bankruptcy, your safe deposit box is not part of CitySafes’ bankruptcy estate.

*The 1€ for the first year promotion is applicable for the sizes Klein and Mittel. This promotion is valid until 31st of May. A maximum of 3 safes per customer applies.
