Hiring a good security services company is an important part of planning any event. We have previously spoken about why event security is necessary for a successful event, but now that you’ve decided to use a security services company, we’re here to help you choose wisely. Therefore, we’ve listed a number of important considerations that you should bear in mind when deciding who to go to.

They are accredited

A good way of telling how reputable a company is to find out whether they have any accreditations. Put simply, a security services company without any qualifications is less likely to be reliable or efficient as one who has multiple of accreditations. We at Umbrella Security hold Approved Contractor Status (APS), an ISO 9001 accreditation, and the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS). These qualifications mean that our performance, quality assurance, and health and safety standards, have been checked, verified, and are of the highest quality.

They’re flexible

A good security services company will cater to your personal needs. They will be clear and communicative, and will consider your requirements and put them first. We at Umbrella Security have over eighty years of combined management experience, and are adept at tailoring our plans to our clients. Our diversity when training staff means we are well equipped to deal with a wide variety of requirements. For example, we employ Event Stewards, Door Supervisors, Security Guards, and even Close Protection Officers. Rest assured that if you contact us, we will be able to help.

They have an excellent reputation

Asking around will often reveal how good a security services company really are. Accreditations are one thing, but actually delivering in real-life situations is arguably even more important. Choosing a company with a poor or no reputation is risky, as they could be vastly inexperienced or simply provide poor services. Umbrella Security’s reputation has been built up over the years. We are known for providing customers with the very best in terms of security services. If you would like more information on the successful services we have provided, view our list of clients.

They employ top professionals

A security services company is only as good as its employees. It’s a cliché, but it’s an important point. A good security service company’s employees will be excellent communicators and boast a wealth of experience. They will also have high levels of awareness and be physically fit. You should be able to ascertain a worker’s experience and communication skills from your first contact with them; be sure to consider how clear they are with you, and ask them about their experience. Umbrella Security Services employ hard-working, professional security workers, and ensure that our high standards are maintained by everyone.
