So Why Should You Change Security Companies?

Arriving late, laziness, unfriendly, untidy. All qualities you DO NOT want in a Security Operative, particularly if they are responsible for protecting your business.

At First Perception Ltd, we are constantly aiming to improve our company and our staff, which is why we have an robust booking system to make sure staff arrive on site on site.

All of our guards are given company uniforms and will always arrive with a smart and professional appearance.

If The Security Operatives Are Not Properly Qualified

All security Operatives working for a private security company must be SIA (Security Industry Authority) licensed, if they are not then they have been illegally employed – a definite sign to change security company. The best way to ensure this, is to check that your security company is an SIA approved contractor which means that they adhere to certain standards and regulations. You can find the register of approved contractors here.

Security working on construction sites may arguably have to take on more responsibility than most, which is why it is essential for them to have adequate health and safety training. This ensures that they know how to behave appropriately in a hazardous environment.


You’re Not Getting The Right Price

If you have been charged less for the same service.

This can be down to a number of reasons, including:

  • If the security provider you are with is giving you more services than you need as a package without the option to do it separately.

  • If you don’t feel safe. This usually means that the security company are not doing their job properly and you are wasting your money.

  • If you have been let down by the quality of service.

  • If you are not receiving as much security as you want/need.

How Can You Fix This?

  1.  Check your current security contract to ensure you are within your rights to either end it earlier than was originally planned or are coming to the end of the contract term.

  2.  Go over your business’s current monthly costs – how much is your security costing you? At First Perception Ltd, we will match or beat this price.

  3.  Decide whether you are happy with the service that you are currently receiving; is it more than you need, or not enough?
