Protecting Your Vacant Property During The Holiday Season

If you are a vacant property owner, you will most likely already have security measures in place to protect it. However, your existing measures may be difficult to monitor when you are jetting off on holiday.

More thefts and vandalism occur as opportunists take advantage of empty properties, during the holiday season. Below are our V.P.Eye top tips to help you reduce the risk of theft or vandalism so you can completely relax on your well-deserved break.

  1. Protect Your Expensive Equipment and Assets

 Ensure all of your expensive equipment and assets are locked away and are securely hidden. We recommend investing in a bolted-down safe with a time lock and anti-tamper sensors for items that are high in value. Additionally, make sure stock rooms are locked and any stock is out of sight. This will give you peace of mind that your precious items are completely safe and unattainable from thieves.

  1. Employ Our Alarm Response Service

Your empty property may already have a working intruder alarm in place, and if so, our rapid response team is a must when answering activations, ensuring the property is safe from squatting, damage, arson, metal and lead theft and vandalism. Our speedy average response time in 2022 has been 15 minutes, so you can count on us to keep a watchful eye on your property whilst you are away. 

  1. Ensure You Have Vacant Property Insurance

Making sure you have the adequate insurance in place may give you peace of mind, as you know you will be covered for any incidents. However, vacant properties, in particular, have specific criteria to follow. Our weekly inspection service will ensure that your property is safe, secure and in good order and will likely be a stipulation of your insurance cover. We cover a thorough and professional inspection, which includes a detailed report. 

  1. Incorporate Physical Barriers

As well as doing the usual lock-up routine, utilising physical barriers, such as steel screens of shutters are an effective deterrent, as it makes your property far more difficult to enter. This will ensure that your property is well protected from the outside and will put off any burglars or criminals approaching it. 

  1. Invest in State of the Art CCTV

Get an edge over criminals with state of the art CCTV cameras that spot trouble from afar, avoiding an insurance claim. With their own power supply and no need to drill holes or connect to wifi, they really are a versatile wireless tool to keep empty properties safe and secure 24/7.
