Good things are happening in British business
Find out how some of our customers have evolved their businesses in innovative ways.
Our Market Street branch in Manchester is our first to offer Safe Deposit Boxes, providing protection for your valuables and piece of mind for you.
Limited number of boxes available. Subject to availability.
Firstly, you’ll need to check that the Business meets the Lloyds Bank Safe Deposit Box eligibility criteria. If it does, register your interest by completing the form and one of our branch colleagues will call you back to organise an appointment.
Your Authorised User will need to complete the Safe Deposit Box opening process face-to-face with a colleague at our Lloyds Bank Manchester Market Street branch. An application form will need to be completed by the business in advance of the visit to the branch and brought to the branch. The Authorised User will need to bring a form of ID with them.
To ensure the contents of your Safe Deposit Box are as secure as possible, our boxes are held in the name of the business and are operated by one person. This person, at all times, must be authorised by the business and must be a signatory for the qualifying account.
The Safe Deposit Box can only be accessed at our Manchester Market Street branch during its opening hours.
Business customers choose to keep all sorts of things within our Safe Deposit Boxes, but most tend to store business related items that would be impossible to replace. Examples include:
There are some things that business customers are unable to store within our Lloyds Bank Safe Deposit Boxes. Examples of such items include wills, bank notes or coins still in circulation, perishable goods, or any items that are illegal or the proceeds of crime. You can read the full list of prohibited items in our full Ts&Cs (PDF, 221KB), on page 2.
Our Safe Deposit Boxes come in three different sizes:
The prices differ depending on the size of the Safe Deposit Box you choose:
All prices are inclusive of VAT.
There is one simple, annual fee for hiring a Safe Deposit Box and this depends on the size you choose.
There are only a couple of other instances where you may be charged additional costs. For example, if we’re required to drill into the Safe Deposit Box lock, because you’ve lost the keys or you don’t return both keys to us at the end of the hire period. Read condition 8 of our full Ts&Cs (PDF, 221KB) for more information.
If you misplace the keys to your Safe Deposit Box, we will need to drill into the box to unlock it and then replace it with a new lock and keys. You might be required to cover the costs involved in this. A new set of keys can then be provided. Read condition 12 of our full Ts&Cs (PDF, 221KB) for more information.
We don’t provide insurance cover for valuables stored within a Lloyds Bank Safe Deposit Box. Our boxes are not an alternative to insurance, so it’s important to consider whether you have adequate insurance before storing your possessions with us. You should consider getting your items valued before you take out insurance to ensure you’re covered for their full replacement value.
We recommend documenting the contents of your Safe Deposit Box. For example, where possible, you should save purchase receipts, keep photocopies of your original documents at home and take photo evidence of the items you’ve stored with us.
Except in the limited circumstances set out in condition 5 of our Ts&Cs (PDF, 221KB), items are stored at your sole risk.
If the Safe Deposit Box is held by a sole trader and they die, the person administering their estate will need to produce Grant of Representation before they’d be granted access to the items stored within your Safe Deposit Box.
If the Safe Deposit Box is held by a Business and the Authorised User dies, you will need to complete a Change of Authorised User form. There may be a delay to your use of the Safe Deposit Box service during the changeover.

Lloyds Bank Safe Deposit Boxes aren’t waterproof. We’d suggest using waterproof packaging if you think your possessions could be damaged by water. It’s worth bearing in mind that we won’t be liable for any damage to items stored in the Safe Deposit Box caused by any acts outside our reasonable control (‘force majeure events’), such as storm damage.
