How to Strengthen Security on Your Business Property This Summer

When running your own business, you're bound to face some challenges, whether it's trying to attract new customers, keeping expenses down, or even protecting your business from crime. In this blog post, we're going to explore different tips and tricks to help you reduce crime on your property while also ensuring your business is protected with the right commercial insurance policies from Aegis Insurance & Financial Services.

Secure Your Building

You walk up to the front door of your building one morning, ready to start another productive day, only to find broken windows, missing inventory, and a whole lot of frustration. Does this sound familiar?

Retailers and other businesses are often targeted by burglars, robbers, and vandals who see them as easy targets. But with a little preparation and the right precautions, you can minimize the risk and keep your business safe.

You can enhance building security by investing in reinforced locks for your doors and windows, adding a 24-hour alarm system, and hiring security guards to regularly patrol and monitor the property. Also consider installing security cameras at strategic points around your property to deter criminals and provide evidence in case of any unfortunate incidents.

Make It Brighter

Lighting is another simple yet effective way to ward off criminals. Ensure that the exterior of your property is well-lit at night, especially near windows, entrances, exits, parking lots, and loading zones.

Criminals prefer the shadows, so by illuminating your premises, you make it harder for them to go unnoticed. Motion sensor lights can be a great addition to areas like parking lots or alleyways.

Insure Your Business Well

While taking preventive measures is essential, having the right commercial insurance policies in place can provide an added layer of protection and peace of mind. Two key policies to consider are Commercial Property Insurance and General Liability Insurance.

Commercial Property Insurance covers any damage or loss to your physical assets, such as inventory, tools, equipment, and the building structure. It can help you recover financially if your business falls victim to theft, fire, or vandalism, so it's essential to accurately assess the value of your property so you can have the coverage you need to fully recover.

General Liability Insurance protects your business in case someone gets injured on your property or if you face a lawsuit due to alleged negligence. If a robber injures a customer in the parking lot, or a thief steals employee property because of your lax security, having liability insurance can save you from potentially devastating financial consequences.
