Step-up in Security at York Auction Centre

Step-up in Security at York Auction Centre

York Auction Centre in Murton has taken a fresh approach to security and enlisted on the experience and knowledge of local firm Eboracum®.

In a move to enhance their current measures, the centre upgrades its protection against theft, damage and trespass.

Eboracum UK Ltd have upgraded the on-site presence with a team of experienced SIA Licensed security operatives, working around the clock with remote support from a dedicated management team.

The centre understand and appreciate that guarding is not just about a person sat in a gate house, or stood at a specific location for hours. It is also about monitoring, keeping those team members alert and vigilant and being able to get support to them immediately.

Being a local firm, Eboracum can do just that. This comes in the form of a mobile response vehicle that will react to any colleague requesting help and support.

It gives me great pleasure to know that a long-standing york business has put trust and faith into us to provide them with a bespoke security package. We have already seen some real positive results to demonstrate how small changes in security can make a big difference.

Carl Nickson, Eboracum®

The high visibility guard presence, ability to take immediate action, remote support and external CCTV & alarm monitoring creates a force to be reckoned with.

The Eboracum team have already detected and then deterred a team of would-be thieves. They were spotted within seconds and decided against entering further after realising that their chances of being caught was high.

Aside of all of this, the team also deliver a customer service role to support and reassure the lorry park guests who frequent the site and use the facilities.

We are really pleased to have Eboracum looking after our site security. The improvements they have made & their vigilant hands on management has made a huge difference to our security & given us better peace of mind that it is in safe hands.
