Essential locking and unlocking services

across the North West

Many companies have someone on their payroll responsible for locking up the building at night and opening it up again in the morning. Not only is this a large responsibility to put on an employee, it carries potential risks. For instance, studies have shown that orchestrated robbery attempts are most commonly planned for opening and closing times.

At Marpol Security we provide a locking and unlocking service for business across the North West. Companies from Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, and Merseyside, have all benefited from having one of our trained security guards lock and unlock their premises for them.


As the North West’s leading provider of locking and unlocking services, we have much to offer companies in the region. Here are some of the services we provide:

Locking down

Our highly-trained and SIA-licensed security staff will be on hand to lock down your building for the evening. They will ensure all staff have safely left the premises before making a brief inspection of the building. This is to ensure that all internal doors are secure, and all windows are closed and locked. They will also turn off any lights and appliances, to reduce the risk of fire. Finally, prior to locking up the building, they will set your alarm for you.

Mobile patrols

Outside of work hours, we can arrange for one of our mobile security patrols to check in on your property. They will perform a sweep of the perimeter, making sure all windows and doors remain secure, and checking for signs of damage or forced entry.

Opening up

In the morning, our key holder will attend your premises before any other member of staff arrives. They will unlock and open the building and turn off the alarm. They will then perform another patrol of the premises, turning on lights and appliances, where necessary, and ensuring there has been no breach of security overnight. Finally, they will await the arrival of your employees, before leaving.
