Anyone emptied their safe deposits yet!?

Recommended Posts

I've transferred cash from a building society to withdraw as cash to keep handy, I'll put it back if not needed. 


The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

Just wondering, while the world is going mad if anyone has decided to empty their safe deposit boxes and have the precious metal to hand?

Just be ready to be questioned at the bank / building society as to why you want to withdraw X amount. 

If you don't like their tone just say you want it for cocaine and hookers. 

Just tell them you are going on a wanker banker weekend experience.

There in nothing in my safety deposit box worth anything yet alone worth emptying, all I use my safety deposit box for is to store documents and passports in - I hold multiple passports.  So it's nothing that can't be replaced, it's just replacing them would be a PITA of mega proportions, and would involve travelling to several countries.

Lol

You know banks in the U.K. have his stupid law that they have to follow of face very very heavy consequences, no bank by law in the U.K. is allowed to let you leave with more information than you brought in/walked in with.  Seriously ask your bank teller or bank manager.

That's a hell of a question! If folk take the precaution of storing their PMs in a SDB for safe keeping, I would hope they wouldn't announce when they take it all home with them!

You do know the folk working in bank branches get terrible pay and work essentially a standard retail job right? Just saying, sounds like you have them confused with investment bankers!

Im well aware. When bankers are mentioned on here we obviously mean the investment dep or directors

Fair enough, but I don’t think those are the folk who will be asking you about your cash withdrawal 😛

I took Friday off from work in order to buy a numismatic coin at Baldwin’s with cash. It was one of those rare shipwreck sovereigns that you had to inspect in person the old school way rather than browse online before buying. Unfortunately, the cashpoint restricted the amount I could withdraw to way below the amount I needed to purchase the coin. I felt like giving up that day in frustration until the yellow metal came to my rescue. I hit on the idea of selling two of my 1/4oz gold bullion coins down Hatton Garden Metals to get the cash to buy the coin.

Been transferring mine to a series of safe locations  - a bunch of ideas I cooked up one night when quite drunk.

Here are some I HAVENT executed lol: 
1. Loosen a few bricks in the house walls. 
2. Cut a bunch of PVC pipes up and stick capsuled silver coins in them and stick them up in the roof to appear like plumbing
3. Dig a hole on the floor of the shed, fill up and stick an erosion proof box in the ground and cover 
 


Interested in Pre-1920 Silver British Coins in any quantity, make me an offer!

That's probably the push that I need to stop looking at zodiacs and to finally pull my finger out and buy one, but you know the old saying, ''if it flys,floats, or fornicates, it's cheaper to rent than own''.

You're going to have to re-word your reply, as I don't quite follow the context of what you're saying.
