Vacant Property Protection Reviews

Global Guardians works with a large variety of people who have the responsibility of protecting vacant properties. Our clients encompass Local Authorities, Housing Associations, NHS Trusts, fund managers, property agents, RICS chartered surveyors, property developers, property investors, charities, banks, and LPA receivers, amongst others. Due to the high quality, innovative service we provide, our clients are happy to recommend us to protect your vacant property.

Global Guardians provided a no fuss, no fees, end-to-end service that was exemplary. All of the guardians had links to the local area and provided full security not only to their own building, but also to the industrial park that it was part of, within a very complicated site. On top of this the grounds were well maintained and the reporting was regular and comprehensive, with the site returned to us clean, clear and on time. We would unreservedly recommend Global Guardians and look forward to working with them in the future.

Director, Salmon Property

To date we have used Global Guardians on two of our vacant sites in central London. They have not only provided an excellent service, but have done so in a friendly and professional manner. The team at Global Guardians are always prepared to help out and provide assistance when requested, but ultimately, they have saved us money, kept our properties secure and given us peace of mind.

Associate Director of Property Development, Poseidon Group

Global Guardians have helped us achieve our business objectives and using their services was certainly a significantly cheaper solution than using a 24/7 security guard. We really appreciate the fact that our empty properties are being used for something socially useful, by creating affordable living spaces in the London area, so much so that we used this in an internal awards scheme. Global Guardians delivered on all their promises and we would rate both their ability to deliver a guardian service and their ability to manage buildings as excellent.

Senior Surveyor, Property & Asset Management, JLL (Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated)

I used Global Guardians to secure a sensitive property in the Fulham area a few months ago. The site had been beset with problems; including vandalism and illegal occupation.

Global Guardians were extremely supportive, speedy and "hands on" in their approach to assisting me secure the building. Unlike many of their rivals, they offer a bespoke solution to property protection as opposed to generic, corporate methods. I cannot recommend this organisation too highly and would be delighted to work with them again in the future.

Tony Clark

Property Director, London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham

Let me take this opportunity to thank you all at Global Guardians for the excellent service that you have provided to the Local Authority during my time here.

When we first began using the guardian solution to our vacant building issue we had no idea what the industry was about, needless to say we soon caught up with industry standards. This was in no small part due to your assistance. Working alongside you I believe that together we have changed the way in which guardian companies offer their services, for the better.

Facilities Manager, London Borough of Haringey

Global Guardians Management has been providing us with advice and services since August 2014. They have successfully secured and managed 10 of our properties with both their Property Guardian and Property Caretaker solutions. We chose to work with Global Guardians based upon their high-level of accreditations and company ethos. Global has provided expert advice on how to best secure our voids, reduce our outgoing costs and the time our teams need to dedicate to these projects. Global also regularly bring new things to the table. From the introduction of their Property Caretaker solution which saves us £1600 per week on manned security, to MyGlobe, the client portal which allows us to securely see all the documentation and updates pertaining to our properties under Global's management. This has reduced the amount of time we need to spend searching archived information as all of this data is available on MyGlobe. In addition to having direct contact with our account manager, we now have complete transparency through this login meaning that we are never out of the loop. Global has consistently secured our interests with high-levels of dedication and have saved us considerably on our security costs. Through my new MyGlobe account login I can see that Global have saved us £438,816.00 on these costs and have generated an income for us of £33,800.00

It has been fantastic working with Global Guardians on a number of our key events throughout 2016/17. They are an extremely professional team and they have added great value to the projects that they have been involved in. I very much look forward to carrying on our professional relationship in the future.

Michael Clark

Business Development Manager, Estates Gazette

We have enlisted the services of Global Guardians to secure and manage our void property stock for many years now; they have saved my organisation a great deal in security costs. The Guardians occupy a diverse range of properties within our portfolio while offering a flexible approach for each in isolation. I have recommended Global Guardians' services to many others in the profession and will continue to do so.

James Rogers

I have received a high-level of service from Global Guardians in relation to the property they manage for me in Brighton. I have another property in the pipeline which I will offer to Global to secure for me. I have been very happy with their professionalism and dedication to the protection of my property.
