THE PORTOVAULT method of storage gives bank vault security to your treasures. The PORTOVAULT is a vault like portable steel container which is conveyed to your residence on an automobile chassis, where it is scientifically loaded with your household property. It is then locked and sealed and returned to the warehouse, where it is placed in its own compartment to remain undisturbed until it is ordered returned. Then the reverse procedure is followed.

You will note in the entire transaction there are but two handlings -- one in and one out.  Naturally this eliminates costliness, inconvenience, and avoids damage by handling and loss by pilferage and depreciation.
