Security Companies

We have recently received a number of calls from people telling us that they have had cold calls from security companies trying to sell them security systems and what should they do.

It is never advisable to purchase from someone cold calling at the door or by telephone. Many companies are genuine, however, there are some that are not and use very persuasive tactics, give unclear contracts, sell over priced systems and do raise the fear of crime.

Always check the details of the company.

Always obtain at least 2/3 written quotations from different companies

Use companies that are registered with the Independent Inspectorate Bodies such as NSI or SSAIB

Ask friends and family if they can recommend companies

Visit http://www.safelocaltrades.com – this is a local website providing a register of recommended traders in the PE postcode area. All the traders are interviewed, criminal record checked and vetted and have genuine reviews from satisfied customers.
