An empty building can make a tempting target for would-be intruders, such as squatters, burglars, vandals, and arsonists. Any local criminal element soon becomes aware of vacant properties in their neighbourhood, which makes it all the more important to have the appropriate security solutions in place.
Here at Marpol Security, we can put together a bespoke security package for any of your void properties in the Greater Manchester area. We have trained security personnel available across the region, including Wigan, Bolton, Bury, Salford, Trafford, Tameside, Manchester, Rochdale, Oldham, Stockport, and beyond.
As Greater Manchester’s leading provider of vacant property security solutions, we have much to offer companies in the region. Here are some of the services we provide:
If you know your building is going to remain vacant for the foreseeable future, we recommend protecting it against forced entry and vandalism by securing all ground level doors and windows. We supply and install roller shutters and heavy-duty padlock, and can even lay concrete barriers across the entranceway to prevent vehicle accessing your grounds.
As part of our vacant properties service, we perform regular inspections of the premises to confirm that the building remains secure. We check all doors and windows for signs of attempted entry, as well as patrolling the grounds to see if there is any environmental damage. We carefully log all inspections and their results; in case they are needed later for evidence.
We can fit internal or external CCTV cameras to your vacant property to ensure your building is under surveillance 24 hours a day. These produce a live feed that is transmitted to our remote monitoring unit. Their role is to instruct our mobile patrol teams to intervene should they notice any unusual activity.
Our mobile units patrol the local neighbourhood around your vacant property, day and night. Their route takes them past your building and any others we provide security for. In the event of an incident, they drive to your site to investigate, liaising with any official police presence at the scene.
