Around-the-clock perimeter security monitoring is crucial when protecting a large area with valuable assets such as an RV Dealership. Understanding the potential impact of crime and how to protect against it is imperative when running a business where the most valuable assets are kept outdoors. Many thieves are opportunistic and will target properties with weak security. To help you protect your trailers and vehicles, we have compiled a list of three ordinary perimeter security issues at RV dealerships.
Top 3 Security Problems
RV Dealerships Experience Vandalism
Thieves and vandals cause damage to customers’ RVs in addition to RVs scheduled for sale—at times even those that are scheduled for pick up the very next morning. It’s a situation with no upside and it calls into question several critical metrics of perception including perimeter security, customer service and the overall reputation of the RV dealership. Vandalism greatly diminishes the appearance of reputable properties and is a major barrier for customers looking to purchase.
Homeless Taking Shelter in Your RV
While being sympathetic to the plight of the homeless, the reasons for preventing them from spending nights in RVs are plentiful. Industrial security issues range from vandalism and damage to liability and accountability in the event of injury, or worse.
Thieves Covet RV Electronic Components
RV dealerships are forced to routinely remove components from their RVs daily to protect each motor vehicle from perimeter security issues. Doing this repeatedly increases the opportunity for damage to the electronic components and to the RV, as well as taking up valuable hours that could be spent taking care of other important tasks around the dealership.
Perimeter Security Tips to Prevent Theft at RV Dealerships
Install Fencing, Bright Lights, & Signs
Investing in an industrial security system will prevent access to your dealership at night. This can be accomplished through fencing, warning signs and immediate police notification. Installing bright, intrusive lighting can also deter criminals who work in the cover of night.
Create an Employee Sign In Process
Implement a strict employee sign in and sign out process. This is beneficial because it allows the dealership to know exactly who is on the perimeter at any given time.
Configure GPS Technology
GPS technology is inexpensive in bulk and can be added to vehicles for protection. For example, if an RV is taken off the property illegally, the dealership will have access to its location.
Invest in a Perimeter Security System
Having a perimeter security system that is always on is imperative because it gives peace of mind and removes the issues associated with human error such as someone forgetting to set the alarm.
