I finally feel the need for a serious safe. My mother has been giving me a lot of her jewelry, and I have an increasing number of legal papers to keep track of. I'll be putting it in a part of my basement that guests will never visit, and bolting it to a concrete base that I'll have poured. The thing is, I don't know whether to buy a used safe or a new safe. Both are equally fireproof with similarly safe locks. And installation costs are the same for both. The used one is UGLY - tan and brown, and dates from the 1970s. It costs $350 and is spacious, with over 2.5 cubic feet of space and a single removable shelf. The new one is matte grey, and rather sleek, with just under 2.0 cubic feet of space and several adjustable shelves. It costs $750 - or $400 more. It's probably logical to get the used safe, but it's just so UGLY. The newer safe is snazzy, but maybe not as large as I'd like. Please help enable me one way or the other!
