Have Peace of Mind over The Festive Season with Robinson Services Drive Through Security Services









Robinson Services security division was created to add value to an existing quality service portfolio. We hold SIA approved contractor status for the provision of security guarding, keyholding and CCTV. The company achieved SIA (ACS) accreditation at the introduction of SIA legislation into Northern Ireland and at present the score achieved in the independent audit carried out annually place Robinson Services in the top 10% of all security companies audited throughout the UK.

Our expertise in people management together with a highly skilled and enthusiastic management team will ensure that our service professionals deliver tangible benefits and are equipped with the knowledge and expertise to provide security solutions that deliver genuine value for money.

One service that offers clear value for money is our Security Guard Drive Through Patrol Service. of particular use over the Festive season when many commercial premises and offices may be left unattended.

Our Drive-through security patrols serve a very useful purpose.Our drive-through patrol service does not remain on-site and generally uses a vehicle to make the rounds. This type of patrol is less expensive then a dedicated on-site security guard because of the limited time spent on the property. Highly visible, drive-through security services are ideal for the patrol of commercial properties after business hours or on private property not open to the public.

Our Drive through service observes or tests all accessible gates, doors, and windows and makes sure they are secured and can report the conditions found on the property to the business owner or the police. Another purpose is to make sure no unauthorized persons are trespassing on private property. If you wish our drive-through security services may also respond to alarm signals, but this requires a more specialized guard force.

The primary goal of our drive-through security patrol service is to deter property loss and discover vandalism after business hours and this presence can if required be supported by signage that states the property will be patrolled by “Robinson Security Services.”

Our Drive-through security patrols are highly visible, high profile, and distinctive in appearance. Our security vehicles are well-marked and equipped with a light-bar on the roof and high-powered spotlights. This high visibility maximizes the deterrent effect

Our Drive Through Security Service can be tailored to your needs so give us a call to see how we can help you have peace of mind over the Christmas Period on 029 9442 9717 or by email to info@robinson-services.com

Not only did it involve, the proverbial sports, music and picture round, this quiz had a darts, table tennis and limbo dancing round . The gathering included many staff that had worked at The Centre for over 10 years and some of the most recent recruits.

Robinson Services first started providing cleaning at The Buttercrane in July 1996, when they were awarded a 3 year cleaning contract, then in August 15, following a competitive tender process were awarded a 3 year contract to provide the cleaning, security, maintenance and customer services.

Peter Murray The Buttercrane Centre Manager commented:

“  We are delighted to have such a professional organisation partner with us for such an extended period. This in many ways is due to the mutual respect and understanding each party has of their respective businesses. It is key that all our service partners have an understanding of the retail market and the fiscal challenges and pressures facing many shopping centres today. We believe we have selected well over the past 20 years and I would like to personally thank Robinson Services and all the employees who have contributed so well since 1996.”
