When is the right time to install security measures? 

The short answer is now. 

 If your building is in use and doesn’t have security

If you’ve just bought or leased the building and are about to move in/secure tenants

If your building is vacant and doesn’t have them or if you do have basic measures already installed – now is the time to think about security

Note: Every building requires security on some level. Your insurance policy is your starting place.

For Vacants:

Location: High, medium or low risk

Void duration: hours, days , weeks, months

Current condition: dilapidated, run down, pristine

This is just the start of the questions you need to ask to decide on the next step

 When to take action

Properties that lie empty, even temporarily, are vulnerable to break-ins.

Manage your risk, speak to the experts, ask for a survey, then TAKE ACTION…otherwise you may find your property broken into to, damaged or vandalised.
