Essential locking and unlocking services

across Preston

Business that run regular hours are at their most vulnerable at opening and closing times. Local criminals often take note of when your staff clock-on and clock-off and will time attempted break-ins to match those times. Your staff, already thinking about starting or stopping work for the day, may be distracted and easily overwhelmed. You can prevent this potential risk to your team and your business by hiring a locking and unlocking officer.

This is a service that Marpol Security provides to businesses across Preston, including those in Ashton-on-Ribble, Bamber Bridge, Barton, Broughton, Chorley, Clayton Brook, Cottam, Euxton, Farington, Fulwood, Grimsargh, Haighton, Ingol and Tanterton, Lea, Leyland, Lostock Hall, Penwortham, Ribbleton, South Ribble, Tardy Gate, Walton Summit, Walton-le, and beyond.


As Preston’s leading provider of locking and unlocking services, we have much to offer companies across the city. Here are some of the services we provide:

Locking down

As your team is leaving for the day, our locking and unlocking officer will arrive at the building. Once everyone has left, they will perform a quick check to ensure nobody has stayed behind, or an intruder has sneaked in. Once satisfied, they will lock all windows and exterior doors, before setting the alarm and drawing down any security shutters.

Mobile patrols

During the night (or day, depending on your company hours) our mobile patrol units will be driving around the area, keeping an eye on our clients’ properties. As part of their role, they will make periodic checks on your building, making sure nobody has tried to gain entry or cause damage to the windows or doors.

Opening up

The process is reversed the following morning, with your locking and unlocking officer turning up before your teams arrives at work for the day. They will unlock the building and turn off the alarm, before performing another check of the building for any suspicious activity. After that, they will make their way to the main entrance and wait for the first members of your team to arrive for their shift.
