While You’re Away
Late spring is the time of year when many people start to plan their summer holiday. It is all too easy to get caught up in the excitement of deciding where to go, and then booking the trip, and it’s easy to forget what could happen at home while you are gone. If you don’t want to spoil your holiday with a telephone call from the police telling you that your home has been burgled, then make sure you do the right things before you go away.
Things You Should Do
As soon as you know when you are going away, it’s a good idea to tell your closest neighbours, and ask them to keep an eye on your home. If you have newspapers delivered, then make sure that you stop that service for the period that you’ll be away. While it’s not always possible to stop people dropping leaflets through your door, you can ask your local post office not to deliver mail while you are away. Under their Keepsafe scheme, the Royal Mail will keep all your post for up to two months, and you simply collect it on your return.
It is a good idea, even if you’re not going away this year, to have a professional home security check. At PFS we offer a Technical Security Survey to people in, and around the Nottingham, Derby, and Leicester area to make sure that your premises are safe, and secure. Our CCTV security systems are state of the art, and offer high resolution images to easily identify people involved.
