As a London based security company, SRS prides itself in providing diligent and honest service.
Before one makes the leap of faith of appointing a security company in London, considering the following criteria may be useful:
Reviews: Does the London security company benefit from sufficient number of positive and current reviews from its various stakeholders?
Accreditations: Is the London Security Company accredited by any renowned awarding bodies? For instance, ISO9001, SIA Approved Contractor or Safe Contractor, being accredited means the security company is being audited annually by external auditor and means the London Security Company met the necessary criteria.
Price: Naturally paying the highest rates is not everyone’s cup of tea; however when it comes to choosing a London Security Company, paying too little should also be a concern. Make sure you appoint a security company that provides reasonable pricing and is willing to provide a transparent breakdown of costs.
As the proverb goes “the size matters”, however this should also be taken in the correct context.
A large Security Company in London may be suitable for some clients, but not for all. For instance, as a client with relatively little security needs, it is unlikely to achieve an engaged and personable service from a large London Security Company. In contrast to that, if a client requires for instance an international reach and capabilities, smaller security companies are unlikely to be able to cater to such needs. With that in mind choosing a security company in London is a balancing act assessing pros and cons to reach optimal levels of service.
There are pros and cons in either option, the key question is the level of involvement, risk you are willing to take.
Naturally, by hiring a London Security Company, elements such as insurance, HR and Legal, financial and Health and Safety all fall within the remit of the security company`s responsibility. So the question is from a hiring stand point, would one be better off by bringing the security personnel in-house and by so doing, take on the responsibilities attached to it. Another obvious benefit is the need to cater to Holiday Leave, Sick Leave and/or other statutory rights. A security company in London will be able to provide a licensed trained and insured security guard to your London premises 24/7/365, providing to you full peace of mind.
