How to Keep Your Car Showroom Secure

The forecourt of a car showroom is the perfect place for a company to show off stock to attract new customers. However, this can also attract the wrong sort of attention from criminals looking to take advantage. 205 vehicles per day were reportedly stolen in 2020, an increase on the previous year. To prevent thieves and criminal gangs from stealing cars and valuable parts, having the right security measures in place is essential to provide a reliable deterrent and keep valuable stock absolutely secure.

Whether you have a large dealership with space for hundreds of cars, or a smaller forecourt area for a few, here are some of the ways of how to keep your car showroom secure.

Book a Site Assessment

If you are unsure of the potential ways of being targeted by thieves, arranging a site assessment can be the easiest way to highlight these to you. By hiring professionals to review your showroom and forecourt, you can quickly find out the potential for thieves to take advantage. Whether it is something as simple as doors being left unlocked or the keys to vehicles not kept securely out of sight, to needing something more permanent such as a security surveillance system, manned guarding and patrols or gated entrance, a quick assessment will uncover these issues. Here at 1st Class Protection, we can arrange a full complimentary site assessment and help you put preventative measures in place.

Identify Areas of Concern

If you’ve been the target of thieves previously, you may already know what needs to be addressed. A lack of security lighting at night or needing manned guarding to patrol the area outside of business hours, there are plenty of options that could potentially help make your site a harder target. If you have already discovered potential areas of concern and want to stop your forecourt being an attractive proposition to thieves, speaking to a professional security company like us will help guide you and implement some security strategies.
