Utah Driving in Winter….Be Prepared!!

Good morning all!!

If you are a fellow Utahn, the information in this post could come in very handy for you. I know that as soon as I saw that first snow fall, the roads were going to be a complete disaster. It’s as if the months go by and people completely forget how to handle snowy roads. Most of you likely have the same thought process that I do “It’s not me I’m worried about, it’s those other idiot drivers on the road”. If we ALL have that same attitude, then chances are….we are ALL the idiots! πŸ˜‰

Even if you are equipped with four wheel drive, commute in a large truck (thank you if you aren’t one of those that drives insanely fast in order to pass and cut others off), or have a vehicle you believe is a rock star in the snow, disaster can still strike! While reading the news today, I came across an article which contains a list of items you should have with you in your car during the frigid winter season. And we are hitting record breaking lows this year in Utah, meaning, you’re not just up against the snow, you’re going to be battling the ICE as well!! SCARY! Here’s a great list of items to put in your trunk this snowy season:

*A flashlight
*Jumper Cables (you should carry these all year round in my opinion!)
*A First Aid kit (again…a year round necessity!)
*Flares or hazard triangles
*Warm clothing, gloves, and a blanket
*An ice scraper
*A snow shovel
*Kitty Litter – for traction on slick roadways
*Extra washer fluid
*Food and bottled water
*A cell phone charger

Feel free to take a look at the full NEWS ARTICLE here.

Under all that fluff there will be ICE!

Utah Freeways can be a DISASTER in the winter!

These are great tips….and the safer you are on the roadways, the safer those around you will be as well! I know that this weather has me white knuckled on the roads, but having that much tension can also cause ugly accidents, so do your best to remain calm. Be aware, be cautious, but try not to completely freak!!

EDIT: Just found this GREAT SLIDESHOW OF UTAH SNOW….Definitely check it out! There are some really great photos of the Utah snow! πŸ™‚

Happy Holidays to you all from Safe Haven Private Vaults!

The Theives Come Out at Christmas!

Happy Monday all!
While checking into local news stories this morning, I came across something I thought we could all benefit from! We know that burglaries and robberies tend to increase around the holiday season, and we all need to prepare ourselves and do what we can to keep our belongings safe!

I have always been so disgusted by thieves. We all work so hard for what we have in life, just to have some low life come and rip it away. There are certain things that we can all do in order to prevent ourselves from becoming the next target! Check out this news article: CLICK ME!!

When it comes to many of these items, it’s all about relying on a friendly neighbor or somebody you can trust to help you keep your home safe! But there are many things that are left up to YOU as the home or vehicle owner. I believe that if you follow these simple rules, your holiday season can be safe and burglar free. One of the items listed speaks about your personal home safes. Instead of keeping a home safe, you can feel that much safer by storing your personal belongings at a storage facility like Safe Haven Private Vaults. You’ll never have to worry about a thief taking your entire safe out of your home. You’ll know that at all times your most precious belongings are being kept safe here, rather than vulnerable in your home. It’s something to think about!

If you’re in the state of Utah, come and take a tour of our facility now that the holidays are upon us. We even have a great give away going on right now! You can receive 6 months of free storage service. We are offering a free trial of a 3×5 safety deposit box. These boxes can actually hold quite a bit! If you decide to stick around, you can renew or even upgrade to a bigger box. However, you are not obligated in any way to stay! (We think you’ll love the sense of security this brings and be a customer for many years to come!! πŸ™‚ )

Regardless of if you decide to store at a facility, take these other precautions. Keep your home safe this season!

Until Next Time!

O’ Christmas Tree, O’ Christmas Tree!

Good morning fellow bloggers! As the snow falls here in Sandy, it is a beautiful (to look at!)Β reminder that the Christmas season is upon us! If the snow would remain off the roads….I would be a much bigger fan! It is so beautiful to look at, but once you are out driving with the wonderful drivers of Utah, you remember why you tend to cringe the moment you look out the window in the morning to see a snow covered valley. Bundled up next to a fire with a cup of tea or hot chocolate is definitely the way to go about enjoying the snow! And of course…the Christmas Tree lit up in front of the window for all passers to see.

Speaking of Christmas Tree’s….we have decided here at Safe Haven to put up a very large, very beautiful, and very GIVING tree! We have hung gift cards from many branches for the taking! The gift cards are for 6 months free rental of a 3×5 vault (as with our holiday Social Media give away). As with our give away, there is absolutely NO obligation to renew once your six months are up, but you are definitely welcome too!!

Come grab a gift card off of our Tree of Gifts! While you're here, you're welcome to tour the facility! :)

I love the site of Christmas Trees through the window pane...but close up, this tree has much more to give!

Come down and visit us this Holiday Season. You’re welcome to take a card to give to a family member or friend if you don’t believe you have items you’d like to store. It’s a great gift!

We hope to see many of you as Christmas approaches!

From all of us here at Safe Haven Private Vaults, Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Until Next Time! πŸ™‚
