Our simple and affordable vacant retail property security solutions keep your empty premises secure from break ins and vandalism while ensuring your health and safety and insurance obligations are met to maintain cover.
Retail premises risk assessments
Empty shops, retail units and associated car parks are prime targets for vandals, trespasser and travellers looking for new locations to set up illegal encampments. Our professional risk assessments identify all site vulnerabilities and recommend cost effective solutions to minimise risk to the property and surrounding land.
Locking and boarding up
Changing the locks is vital to make sure previous tenants can’t access the property or pass keys onto others. We change all locks and board up vulnerable windows and doors to prevent vandalism. Our letterbox seals temporarily stop unwanted mail building up and causing a fire hazard, with no damage to the door.
Vacant Retail Premises Inspections
When a shop or unit becomes vacant it may no longer comply with insurance policy requirements. Often underwriters insist on regular inspections to ensure the security and integrity of the property. Our expert teams conduct regular professional insurance approved internal and external vacant property inspections. We take care of all the paperwork and provide an electronic audit trail to give you full peace of mind.
Temporary CCTV surveillance
We supply, install and monitor a full range of temporary CCTV systems and rapid deployment CCTV towers to provide early warning of any suspicious activity on your site. Our innovative vacant property technology solutions provide a considerable cost saving versus traditional static manned security options.
