There’s no denying that scrap yards and recycling centers are prime targets for thieves.
With a potential global precious metal shortage looming, scrap yards could soon be viewed as a bigger target than ever before.
So why are so many scrap yards relying on ineffective security measures instead of deploying proactive crime deterrence like Remote Video Monitoring (RVM) provides?
Most businesses in this space know that physical security is a must. But you may not know the best way to secure your business?
Many scrap yard owners around the country are taking on the task of securing their businesses themselves. That could mean stepping into harm’s way or paying for electric fences or services that simply don’t cut it when it comes to keeping thieves out.
And scrap yards could face bigger problems down the road with insurance and legal liability. If you are utilizing any of the following methods, you should think twice – and here’s why:
Your job is to run your business, not worry about how to secure it! Ultimately, you shouldn’t have to.
Leave Security to the Experts
The bottom line is this – you’re an expert at running your business, not at securing it. The good news is that you don’t have to be!
