Australia and New Zealand make excellent options for offshore private vaults since they’re both stable
countries that are geographically isolated from most of the world. While there are plenty of high-quality
private vault options within these countries.
ARA Vaults, 145/28 Lexington Dr, Bella Vista NSW 2153
ARA Vaults is located in Sydney, Australia and is operated by Andrew and Jenny Dalton. The couple
designed, built, programmed, and now operate all of their vaults.
What I find the most intriguing about ARA vaults is their four-way verification system. This vault service
is one of the only facilities that uses iris biometrics – the most accurate biometrics authentication system
apart from DNA – as a part of their four-count verification process.
Not to mention, throughout their 25 years of experience, the couple has inspected vaults on five continents:
America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa. The couple has been recognized by the Australian Federal
Government for their integration of CRM, access control, and accounting package. They are able to
facilitate global orders for shipping and storage of bullion and have been doing so for many years, holding
for US, Asian, and European clients.
Their website appears to be user-friendly, modern, and professional, and the site is full of information and
should answer most of your questions.
ARA Vaults is known for their safe custody of gold and silver bullion, jewelry, precious heirlooms, Bitcoin,
data files, and secure document storage. The service’s safety deposit boxes range from size small to extra
large, and boxes start at just $22+ (AUD) per month for the small box and $55+ per month for the extra
large box. Complimentary $10,000 insurance is also included in the monthly fee, and members have free
unlimited access to their boxes during operating hours. I noticed that the service is open six days a week
but closes for a few specific days/holidays, so that’s something to keep in mind in the future if you’ll need
access on or around those dates.
ARA Vaults offers private viewing rooms for members to open their boxes in. Another impressive perk to
using ARA Vaults is their door-to door service for transporting valuables from both local and international
locations via ARA Security.
Smaller perks that make the service even more convenient are a lounge area for client guests,
complimentary bottled water and coffee, and free on-site parking. There is no lock-in contract, so you can
cancel your vault service whenever you need. The storing of firearms, ammunition, illegal drugs, liquids,
or organic materials is forbidden.

the Port of Brisbane. The vault is deep underground in geopolitically safe Australia and provides state of
the art protection with 24/7 monitoring. The service is most commonly used to store precious metals, data,
Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency, jewelry, collectibles, diamonds, and gems.
Clients may choose from safe boxes, bullion locker safes, individual upright safes, large high-security safes,
custodial storage, fire-resistant document storage, document compactus, and dedicated private floor space.
Storage types are grouped into Categories 1-4 and prices reflect that accordingly.
Clients may enter Reserve Vaults by appointment only and with very strict requirements. No phones or
cameras are allowed in the vault area under any circumstances, and nobody – not even management – can
access the vault outside of normal hours. Clients are accompanied by a security officer while visiting their
unit, but they are given privacy while handling its contents. Two individual clients may be at Reserve
Vaults at once.
To maintain maximum security, Reserve Vault’s website does not include photos of the facility. The
website is modern, user-friendly, and provides in-depth information about what the service offers. You
can book a tour online by visiting Reserve Vaults’ contact page.
Scenic New Zealand has long been a popular place for offshore gold and valuable storage
Imperial Vaults; 190 STODDARD ROAD, MT ROSKILL, AUCKLAND, 1041, New Zealand
Imperial Vaults is close to the new Waterview tunnel connection, making it easily accessible for many
travelers, and it’s only a couple of minutes from the southern motorway as well.
Because Imperial Vaults was created to help keep precious belongings from becoming victim to thefts,
burglaries, or fires, the company is happy to provide clients with a “steel fortress that will blow clients
Imperial Vaults has eight storage options to choose from, and there is no restriction access; clients can
access the vault as often as they please. Rental prices begin at $99 NZD per year with discounts available
for longtime customers. Although the service keeps some of their security tools private, they have
mentioned featuring dual key boxes, photo IDs, biometric scanning – including palm scanning, a highquality steel vault, CCTV that operates 24/7, and 24/7 remote monitoring. Because of features like palm
scanning, the facility is not susceptible to identity theft or other threats.
Their website is impressive overall even without prices for every storage choice being listed. The layout is
simple and easy to read, and every page is full of detailed information about how Imperial Vaults operates
and what their morals are.
