Do Your Homework to Find the Right Security Company
Security is a massive issue for South Africans and as a result, the security company industry is booming. There are plenty of fly-by-night operations, but also many which have, for years, made invaluable contributions to the safety of families and the security of properties.
There are manufacturers of physical security barriers, such as Maxidor, independent installers and sellers of security products, and then there is also the armed response security company component – all play a vital role in creating peace of mind when it comes to keeping your family, property and possessions safe.
To ensure the best possible protection, it’s important to partner with a security company with the knowledge and expertise to help you make the right decisions, from the start.
So, how do you know who to choose? How will you know who is really at the top of their game?
Just as with any other important decision – buying a house, changing jobs or choosing a school for your children – you need to do your homework; ask questions and scrutinise the security company’s track record.
Here is a guideline to what you should ask when choosing a security company:
- How long has the company been in business, and is security their primary business or just a “side line” they offer alongside other services?
- Are they up to date with new developments in the industry? How advanced are their products technologically?
- Are their staff trained on the best practices for the industry? How informed are they of new developments and trends?
- What management structures are in place to ensure service excellence, through the lifespan of your relationship with the security company?
At Maxidor, we manufacture, distribute, market, sell and install custom safety and security solutions. Security is our business – it’s definitely not a side line. We don’t believe we are “just installing a security gate”. We install physical barriers between you and possible threats.
Every Maxidor employee is screened for a criminal background before employment, thus ensuring the peace of mind and safety of our clients. Our staff also receive intense training prior to going out into the field, and this training enables them to provide you with the best possible security solutions to suit your needs.
Maxidor adheres to extensive quality controls and procedures in every department, and these are used to sustain our high standard for product strength, service excellence and the Maxidor Creed of Care.
Choosing the right security company to partner with is an important decision, so ensure that you make the right choice from the get-go. If you do your homework and ask the right questions, you should be able to sleep soundly, with peace of mind, knowing that you’ve entrusted your security needs to experts.
