“This includes a chest of semi-precious jewels, a rare bottle of vintage champagne, a Coutts cheque book and a 21 year old lucky penny belonging to a CEO.
“When it comes to why so many customers forget their treasured items, there is one common theme, and that’s living in a fast and furious world. Where time is off the essence especially when getting from A to B and therefore valuable possessions are easily being forgotten.”
