An Orange County security guard can cost you money when you make a net loss, they can save you money, and they can protect you from “What if?” It is a strange service to vouch for because there are plenty of people walking around wishing they had hired a good guard when they had a bad time, and there are even more people who have never really had any bad luck and may wonder why they ever hired security. To some, hiring security is like locking your car door before you leave it. Your car doesn’t get broken into every month, but you don’t invite trouble by keeping your car unlocked. Whatever your opinions on the validity or use of a security service, here are the ways they can save you money.
Getting Insurance and Keeping it Low
If you are running a business, there are several occasions where an insurance company will not cover you if you cannot prove you are doing everything possible to stop fires, damage, and theft. In some cases, hiring a security guard or using security services is enough to ensure that they will insure you and they will pay your claims when you make them.
In other cases, insurance companies work the same way car insurance companies work. The more security you can prove, the more features you have that help lower the chances of a claim, then the better your insurance premium becomes.
Personal Security Guards
What if you are looking for a security guard for yourself, how will that help you save money? Well, in the worst way, it is going to stop you getting mugged or having your car keys pickpocketed. In a broad sense, it is going to allow you to get more done without worrying which street you are driving down and without having to look over your own shoulder. It also allows you to focus on your tasks at hand and allows the guard to worry about your personal safety.
This also helps you raise and run a family. You do not have to be rich to have your kids taken from you for ransom. Take a look at a few prison programs and see how often college kids are abducted and held for ransom. It doesn’t matter how rich the families are, the kidnapping groups expect paying anyway, and unless you are famous, they know that the repercussions for the kidnap will be small and overlooked by the media.
Genuine Loss Prevention
There are several ways a good security service can save you money in this manner. In some cases, they will catch people stealing from you. You should know that in most cases, they catch your own staff stealing from you (in your home or in your business). In some cases, they prevent family members from being abducted for ransom, and in others they stop your own family members from trying to scam you.
