Mountain Vault Becomes First Vault Facility in Arizona to Receive SecurePlus Accreditation; Introduces New SDBIC Insurance Solution

Mountain Vault, a leader in high end private vault storage announced today that it is the first vault company in Arizona to receive the SecurePlus accreditation. SecurePlus, designed by SDBIC, LLC and underwritten by AXA, permits vault facilities, who satisfy a rigorous assessment of its physical plant and operations, to offer individual insurance policies tailored to meet the exact needs of its customers.

As a result of the accreditation, Mountain Vault now provides insured storage through SDBIC covering all legal property contained in a safe deposit box or private vault unit against all natural disasters, as well as theft due to burglary or robbery and other catastrophes. No upfrontdisclosures or appraisals are required to obtain or increase coverage, nor are deductibles paid upon any loss.

Coverage uniquely extends to also protect property with no intrinsic market value, including important papers and documents such as wills, titles, deeds, trusts, passports, digital backups and photos.

“We are continuously working to ensure that our facility offers customers the most sophisticated and innovative security coupled with unparalleled privacy and confidentiality,” said Joe Pruess, owner and President of Mountain Vault. “The SecurePlus accreditation together with SDBIC’s unique, comprehensive insurance provides our customers the highest assurance that they are protected against loss of their valuable property in every possible way.”

With SecurePlus, vault customers can select the precise amount of insurance coverage desired for their contents and have a policy issued directly in their name, which they can actively manage to address any changes in the property being stored. The insurance is underwritten by AXA Art, a specialist in insuring high value property in storage. AXA Art is a member of AXA Insurance, one of the largest insurance groups in the world.

“SecurePlus represents a critical enhancement to vault companies’ core service,” said Jerry Pluard, President of SDBIC. “For those customers seeking a world class facility and a tailored, personalized insurance solution, accredited facilities like Mountain Vault represent the best option for storing their valuable collections and investment assets such as precious metals” added Pluard.

Mountain Vault customers can quickly and easily access coverage limits– up to $500,000 or more –through a new, secure web portal, by calling SBDIC directly at 844-426-9467, or in-person at the vault facility.
