When protecting your business or your property, you need be sure you employ help that will not only do the job well, but will also give you peace of mind in the process. If you are seeking the help of a security company, it is important to understand exactly how they operate in order to know precisely how they will be able to help you. A good security company should be able to provide you with all of the information that you need and ultimately allow you the freedom to never worry about your security. However, how can you know whether the company is any good or not, and whether you can put your full trust in them?
By knowing what to look for in a security firm, you’ll be able to evaluate whether or not a company will be able to provide you with the type of security you need. At Acclaimed Security, we know we are capable of securing your business and your property, but just so you know it too, here’s what you should look for in a security firm…
Some security firms will only offer one particular service, such as manned guarding or CCTV monitoring, so when looking for the right firm for you, you will need to determine which kind of security service you would like or need. At Acclaimed Security, we offer a range of security services that can often work hand in hand, but should you only require one, you must investigate exactly what measures a company will take to ensure they are carrying out that service as best they can.
How do you know they’re any good at it? Don’t just take their word for it; see if their site boasts good testimonials, this way you’ll learn of any successes in the past and can be reassured that their services are reliable. Make sure you take the time to read each one, noting if there seems to be any particular fields they excel in.
A good security company should be just as interested in you as you are in them. They should want to get to know their clients and their property inside-out, as this will help them calculate the best possible security solutions and form the necessary relationship needed to ensure trust in the firm. If a company is simply interested in selling your their services, they are probably not considering your needs.
Every security firm should have recognised standards that support their quality of service. For example, at Acclaimed Security, we hold SIA approved contractor status for the provision of security guarding and key holding, as well as ISO 9001, that certifies our business is run to a formalised standard – amongst others. We also boast several awards that can provide reassurance of the standard of our services to any potential clients.
It is always best to opt for a company that has experience in dealing with other clients who might be similar to yourself. Of course, you can learn this from the testimonials you read, but you can also find reassurance in learning of the recruitment process for any team members. At Acclaimed Security, we ask that all potential employees are able to provide us with a ten year checkable work history and carry experience or have the suitable training required for the job.
