Dangers of a Neighbouring Vacant Lot

Why are vacant lots next to your business dangerous?

If you have a sign somewhat similar to the one above, next door to your commercial establishment then you are at risk. 

Thieves will often target empty stores in order to gain entry through an adjoining wall and rob you.

What can you do?

  1. Request from your landlord that the lights be kept on in the vacant premises.
  2. Have motion detectors added to your Sentinel security system in the empty space. Yes this means the landlord can only enter when your system is disarmed but this is MUCH better than an unpleasant surprise. 
  3. Advise your Insurance Company.

Anything you can do to tip the odds in your favor helps.
