The process begins with a site visit, during which we will assess the location and record all relevant information. Following this survey, our team will generate a set of detailed instructions, providing step-by-step information regarding site specifics and client preferences.

These instructions are stored securely within our cloud-based systems and may include:

  • Emergency contact information
  • Working hours
  • Alarm locations
  • Access codes
  • Key Collection
  • Service locations
  • Fire evacuation plans
  • Floor plans
  • Site manager/supervisor details
Securing a vacant property
