New Zealand Vault provides our clients two storage options; storing in our safe deposit box vault or in our bullion depository.
For clients wanting to store their bullion in a safety deposit box, we provide allocated boxes that can hold up to 10kgs of bullion in our Wellington safe deposit box vault. If you want to store your bullion in our Auckland safety deposit box vault please contact us.
Opening a safety deposit box with New Zealand Vault is easier and more cost effective than you may think. For our safe deposit box service, we charge an annual fixed fee for the box and offer a comprehensive insurance policy which can be added to the annual fee. For more information on our pricing please contact us.
Once your box is opened you have the flexibility to deposit bullion when it suits you. Either purchase bullion from New Zealand Vault’s online trading platform or send your own bullion through one of our global transportation providers. When times get uncertain you’ll be grateful you had the foresight to be prepared and protect your wealth in an offshore private safety deposit box.
In just 4 easy steps your safety deposit box can be opened and ready to receive bullion.

Each safety deposit box has 2 keys; 1 held by New Zealand Vault and 1 held by Grant Thornton. Both keys are required in order to open the safety deposit box. New Zealand Vault cannot access your safety deposit box without the key held by Grant Thornton and Grant Thornton cannot access it without the New Zealand Vault’s key.
Both New Zealand Vault and Grant Thornton will only act on your written instructions to open your box for any reason. In order to remove any bullion and return it to you, your written request would also need to be validated by a Notary. As a result, you are in complete control as to who can access your safety deposit box.
