Investing in security for your business can be a daunting task. It’s something you want to get right, and it’s something that could be extremely costly should you get it wrong. You’re putting your hands in an external provider to keep your assets safe from thieves and vandalism, so it’s hugely important to make the right decision and feel confident in your choice.
1. Research locations and availability
The first thing on your list should be researching local or national security providers – based on your needs. If you’re a large enterprise with multiple sites across the country, it makes sense to consider a security provider who can support you across multiple sites. That way you know you’re getting the same quality service across all locations, and it reduces admin too - it’s much easier to work with one contact than have several! If you’re a smaller company, perhaps you’d like to meet your security provider face to face, and therefore it makes sense to work with a company close to your business.
We work hard to maintain the local feel of a family-run business, but we also operate on a national scale, covering sites all over the UK. We never subcontract, meaning we have greater control over the training, quality and availability of our security officers, making us a much more reliable choice when compared to other security providers who subcontract their security officers.
2. Research the type of service provided
When it comes to security we have over 30 years of professional experience. This means we can easily advise on whether or not you’ll need manned guarding, mobile patrols or door supervisors. We can support you with event security and work with you regardless of whether you’re a construction site, industrial site or retailer, to name just a few. We can discuss your options with you, discuss your budget and find a security solution you’re confident with. It might be that you require CCTV or keyholding, or it might be that only weekend or evening shifts are required.
We have plenty of information on our website to explain the difference between our services, but if you’d rather pick up the phone or set up a meeting, we’d be more than happy to talk to you in more detail.
3. Research their reputation
The next part of your research should be looking into the reputation of the security provider you’re considering. Testimonials and reviews are a great way to learn from past or current clients. We display ours proudly on our website, and we’ve worked hard to build trusting and lasting relationships with those who we provide security for.
