Why secure your shop?
Empty retail units have long been a target for criminals. The potential for unlawful entry can be high, and can have a significant impact on business operations, so is a major headache for retail landlords. Our unique ShopShield vacant retail security package provides convenient, affordable and professional shop security for just £399 +VAT, with a video verified shop alarm available as an additional bolt-on service.
Taking simple steps to secure your shop with a few security features (as provided by our ShopShield One package) can be an adequate enough deterrent for potential intruders, trespassers, vandals and squatters, with an alarm system installed to bolster security in the unlikely event of those systems failing.
Prior to the installation of an alarm system, we recommend:
- Two commercial lock changes
- Letterbox security installation
- Fitting of a mechanical key safe on-site.
- Removal of flammable waste materials.
- These basic security elements are explicitly designed to meet the security challenges of managing an empty retail unit, addressing common threats such as arson, pest control, break-ins and other unauthorised entry.
