How to choose a security company
Posted on 25th March 2022
Here’s some advice we hope will be helpful for you.
Reputation – online reviews and testimonials from previous clients is always a good place to start. A company with very few reviews or mixed comments should be treated with some caution.
Location – there are some very good national companies but you will want to make sure that they have a local branch that understands criminal activity in your area. Even better, choose a well-established local company that will understand the situation in much greater detail. This will allow them to recommend security arrangements that are tailored to your needs.
Approval status – you will want to know that the company you choose will meet current standards and follow best practices so always make sure they are approved to install the security measures they offer.
Customer service – you must feel satisfied that your security company has taken time to understand all your concerns and issues. You should always feel you can ask questions and receive clear and helpful answers. If you don’t feel that you have been listened to then they aren’t the right choice for you.
Services provided – check the services a company offers to be sure all your requirements can be met. For example, some are more focused on providing security guards, or services like CCTV systems and intruder alarms. Make sure you choose a company that focuses on offering the type of services you need.
Bespoke services – some security companies offer a limited range of standard services. If you are looking for a bespoke service to suit your property check to see which companies offer a site audit and whether they really will look at your individual needs.
