Keyholding Services – Could you save money on Insurance premiums?

Using professional key holders for your business can often lead to a reduction in insurance premiums, it has been revealed. In fact, a number of leading insurance underwriters are now insisting upon professional key holders before cover is even given, especially if your business is deemed to be at increased risks.
Some savings on insurance premiums amount to hundreds of pounds, which is a remarkable saving in an era when we are all looking to make our pennies stretch.

Adam Pollard, business development manager at Key Control Services Ltd, one of the north west’s leading security service, said: “More and more insurance companies are recognising the value of the key holder service and advocating the use of a professional alarm response and key holding company to remove implicit risks from personnel and to help reduce the number of false alarm activations. This in turn will reduce the risk of your police response being withdrawn due to inappropriate call outs. Employing a responsible key holding company can reduce insurance costs which in many cases can completely cover the cost of the key holding service itself.”

Key Control Services Ltd, one of the north west’s leading security service, offer key holding and alarm response services. If the alarm is activated, a security officer will be notified by a monitoring station and will attend to deal with the incident, check for intruders and re-set the alarm.

The company, which was set up 14 years ago by managing director Phil Thompson and works with more than 400 companies across the country, also offers a key holder escort service where a security officer can meet a dedicated member of staff at an agreed location in the event of alarm activation. The security officer will accompany the staff member to check the premises, carry out further action as required and re-set the alarm. Key Control will also compile an activation report which will be left on site and allows the client to know the detail of the incident and the time it took to deal with it.
