Important Factors To Consider
- Provide us with your current annual fire safety costs and if we are instructed to take over these provisions, we not only guarantee to save you on your annual spend within the first 12 months, but if you are not entirely satisfied with our services you can cancel your agreement at the end of the first six month period with no further cost.
- We will work closely with you to help a smooth transition of these services. If you are in an agreement with a current service provider we can even help stage this transition.
