Correctly Store Contents in Vaults
Vaults are used to store client property in order to organize the property, maximize warehouse space, prevent theft or loss of client property, and maintain organization and order of the warehouse.

Keep all vaults closed except when loading, unloading, or processing contents. If necessary, reinforce the inside of vaults to support movement and content load.
