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! 😉

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! 🙂

Happy Holidays to you all from Safe Haven Private Vaults!

Until Next Time! 🙂

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!! 🙂 )

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

Until Next Time!

Who Doesn’t Love FREE?!

Hi all!! It’s me again!

Here at Safe Haven Private Vaults we have come up with a GREAT holiday offer. We are giving away Gift Cards for 6 months of FREE vault storage($14.99/month value) at random to all of our followers, fans, and any of you that like us, comment, or share us! You will receive a 3×5 box for a full 6 months at no charge to you. Once those 6 months are up, if you are pleased you are welcome to renew or even upgrade to a bigger box! If you are NOT pleased (which we think is highly doubtful) there is absolutely NO obligation to stay! You can just get your personal belongings and go back to storing them the way you were before.

You may think “I don’t have anything worth storing in a facility like this“….believe me, I thought the exact same thing. But as I dug deeper, I realized there are SO many valuables that may not be worth anything to somebody else, but mean the world to me. Birth Certificates, Marriage Certificates, Social Security Cards, Pictures, Baby Books, and the list goes on and on! If you’re home were to get burglarized or if unpredictable weather damaged your home and everything in it, these are items you want to be protected! Also, as I mentioned in a previous post, if you have a family that LOVES to snoop around the holiday season, this is a perfect place to keep those gifts from being peeked at and ruining the surprise!

If you truly believe you have nothing worth storing in our facility, these gift cards could also make wonderful gifts to those in your family who WOULD get comfort storing such items here at Safe Haven.

There are MANY ways to qualify to receive one of our gift cards. You can follow us on Twitter @SafeHavenPV, you can like our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/safehavenprivatevaults, or just leave a comment below! After the Thanksgiving weekend, let the Gift Cards fly!!

Best of luck with our Give Away! I hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Until Next Time! 🙂

Help Protect the Elderly in Your Family….

Good morning all!

I’m sure the lot of you are preparing for the big Holiday coming up! Thanksgiving has always been one of my very favorite holidays. The family, the food, and the chance to remind ourselves of what we are truly thankful for in our lives. Although I believe one should remember what they are thankful for daily, Thanksgiving is a great day to show others just how much they mean to you. When it comes to our families, we tend to not show our appreciation enough. A news article came out early this week, and it caught my eye. If you have parents or grandparents that are elderly, do they have the safety and security that they deserve? It seems that these days criminals and scammers target the elderly. Whether it be trying to con them out of their retirement savings, or breaking into their homes to steal their belongings, they look at the elderly as an easy target. One of my family members had somebody call them saying that I was in jail and needed money for bail. They gave her an obscene number that needed to be paid in order for me to be released from jail….thank goodness she knew better than to believe this and quickly hung up the phone. She then contacted myself and my parents to fill them in on what happened.

It’s a scary world out there, and we need to protect those that we love. You can offer at least some reassurance by letting those in your family know about Safe Haven Private Vaults. You could help them get a vault set up to store their precious and valuable belongings. It may not stop the cruelty of people out there, but it WILL give them some security knowing that these things are safe and sound and cannot be taken from them. Thieves disgust me, especially when targeting a person that would have a hard time defending themselves. The woman in this article was brave and put up fight to protect what was hers. He may have gotten away with a few of her personal belongings, but if she wouldn’t have fought back, it could have been much worse.

Come down and see us, take a tour, get to know what our business is all about….safety and security.
