Tips for You, the Locker Hirer

Consumer Voice - - About Hiring a Locker in a Bank -

Make sure your bank has all the nec­es­sary se­cu­rity mea­sures, such as alarm sys­tems, iron-gated rooms, elec­tronic sur­veil­lance via CCTV, etc. Also, make sure that the safe room is built with con­crete and steel plat­ing of the walls and the floor.

Make a list of all the things you are plan­ning to keep in your locker. This will help you cal­cu­late the value of the con­tents, and will help you claim com­pen­sa­tion in case the items go miss­ing.

Keep the orig­i­nal bills of all the or­na­ments (if pos­si­ble with a photo in your mo­bile/lap­top) you in­tend to keep in the locker.

Visit your locker fre­quently and en­sure that your valu­ables are safe. Op­er­ate the locker at least once a year.

Al­ways open your locker af­ter the bank em­ployee, who ac­com­pa­nies you to the vault, leaves the place.

Al­ways en­sure that the locker is prop­erly locked be­fore you leave the vault.

If you ever find your locker tam­pered with or dam­aged in any man­ner, im­me­di­ately bring it to the no­tice of the bank man­ager in writ­ing. If you sus­pect foul play, lodge an FIR im­me­di­ately against the bank for the po­lice to in­quire fur­ther in the mat­ter.
