When you hear the term “Buy Local” many different kinds of businesses come to mind like restaurants, retail stores and other product & service businesses, however one overlooked local industry that may be just as — if not more — important to buy local is home & business security.
With so many options available for getting setup with a security system, especially from national or regional based companies, the security industry is a highly competitive marketplace here in the Lowcountry.
Over the years, however, we’ve seen a constant & steady flow of Charleston area residents and business owners migrating back to locally based security services & companies.
Here are 5 reasons why they’re migrating back and why you should apply the “Buy Local” motto for security system & services:
1. Local Experience & Area Expertise
Covering & securing thousands of homes and businesses in the area allows local security firms to have detailed knowledge of the location you’re living or doing business within.
This knowledge is crucial as they can provide better, more trusted insight into what kind of protection you will need, given your location. This kind of customization is hard to come by if you don’t have a local presence.
2. Local Decision-Making
When locally owned businesses make decisions about direction, security products & service offerings and staffing, they have to consider the impacts it can make on their area as they both live and work here.
Externally owned businesses mostly try to do what’s best, but at the end of the day they won’t have to feel the local impact of their decisions like local business owners do, so their choices may not serve the community as well.
3. Community Well-Being & Lowcountry Economic Growth
Again, as many local security business owners work, live, shop, play and raise families here, they help other local businesses grow along with helping them stay safe & secure.
4. Fast, Local Support When You Need It
Along with point one above, having a Lowcountry-experienced team can pay huge dividends when you really need security help or assistance. Combining this experience with locally-based personnel means you get your help quickly and efficiently.
5. Peace of Mind
Ultimately, when you’re equipping your home or business with a security system or camera system, you’re seeking peace of mind for your family or business.
And if you ask many Lowcountry local residents and business owners, getting the peace of mind you deserve when it comes to security, means partnering up with a local security company to provide you with the best, most trusted security system & services.
