Let us assume you are interested in hiring a security company. There are just so many options to choose from, where do you even start? Sometimes it can be overwhelming and confusing. Below are the 5 best tips we can provide to help you with your search.
Tip #1: Experience in the Security Industry
Experience is one of the most important factors when hiring security.
- How long has the company been operating?
- Do they have a good reputation?
These are some of the most important questions. A company with experience usually has the capabilities to respond to any type of situation. This also spills over into security guard employment. An experienced company usually has the staffing of reputable and trustworthy security guards with backups in case of emergency. This all equals better service for you, the customer.
Tip #2: Ensure They’re Licensed and Insured
Licenses & insured security companies are the only kind you want to hire. Every company within the security industry is required by law to be licensed and insured to operate. You have the right to ask to see these documents and I would suggest doing so. Stay away from any company that isn’t willing to show you their certificates when asked.

Tip #3: Use Technology for Accountability
Tracking Technology ensures that security guards are at their assigned location and performing their duties. This will give you peace of mind ensuring you don’t need to personally monitor them. This is extremely important for any job where the guard will be alone. Any company that doesn’t use some form of tracking system should be avoided.
Tip #4: Ensure Availability
24/7 Customer Service is key to a good security company. This ensures that if any emergencies arise you can contact them immediately. Another thing I would mention about having a 24/7 support staff is that it ensures that the company can staff a location within hours when needed.
Tip #5: Quotes Should Be Free
Free Quotes are a sign of a company that is well established. If any company asks you to pay them to give you a quote for any service you should immediately consider them a poor choice and look elsewhere. That company cares more about their bottom line then your safety and will ultimately provide poor service.
