Metro Bank Safe Deposit Boxes

Just noticed on Metro Bank website that they offer safe deposit boxes in their stores:

Wondering what happens to the customer contents if Metro Bank goes down and the stores are no longer accessible? Could not find anything in their Ts&Cs.

    As what's in the box remains yours, the receiver should get in contact with the box renter and arrange access to box so contents can be collected.

    EDIT  If they do go under any of their T&Cs are meaningless.
    Let's Be Careful Out There
  • I'd look for a local firm; my 'letter' sized box 50x120x457 (mm) costs £120 a year.
    Company has some arrangement in place (I really can't remember what) that would allow access to remove contents if they go bust / close down etc.
