When you heard “Business Investment” you think about an office, printers, papers, lawyers, consultants, and so on, but the word “Locksmith” is not even near. Well I must warn you that the locksmiths are going to be a critical part of your small business (I am a very experienced Small Business owner in my hometown) and soon or later you will need one for protecting your small business values. HULT PRIVATE
Four months ago we had to fired an employed because of his behavior and bad temper (we don’t like bully’s in our business) and we forgot that he had a lot of keys in his possessions (a very expensive mistake), three weeks after we fired him strange things started to happen, papers and bills were lost, original contracts and receipts just disappears, and finding them was impossible (and trust me, we did a very extensive search for them), and by far the worst thing disappearing was the money.
We couldn’t really understand what was happening, I manage to find some free time just to stare at my current employees to see if they were the ones to blame, but a part of feeling guilty because I was not trusting on my loyal employees they were not good results by doing that.
So my partner and I decided to go for a cheap solution (well not so cheap indeed) so we bought some security cameras and motion detector alarms in order to protect our business.
The next day we find out that some new bills and contracted were loosed, and that some money just disappeared, so we decided to check the security cameras and guess what? Surprise the cameras weren’t correctly installed so we couldn’t see what happens that night, and the motion detector alarms weren’t correctly installed too.
After that incident we decided to call for a security consultant but his price was overwhelming, so we decided just not to call him and instead look for another solution, one week later a friend recommend us a local locksmith so we decided to give it a try and call him for the service fee estimation.
The estimated fee was OK so the same day the locksmith came to our business and started to do the security risks evaluations, the next morning he brings us the action plan and we reviewed the total fee for his services, it was a lot much better than the price of the security consultant and the solutions were pretty much the same so we give it or approbation and he started to work the same day.
In two and a half the day all the work was done and our small business was now a secure environment, we paid him and that was it. Two days later the security alarms were activated and the police arrived to our small business to check what was going on, and well surprise, it was our previous employed (the fired one), he was guilty of all the bad things that was affecting our business and we stop him with help of our local locksmith. So yes, locksmiths can be a very good business investment, trust me.
