Why Use an Outsourced Keyholding Service?

When you use an external keyholding service, you entrust a company with a set of keys to your premises. This is just one of the services we offer here at NVC. It brings a range of advantages to you and your company. In this blog post we explain the main benefits of using a keyholding service.

Only authorized professionals hold the key to your property

Using a keyholding service is the only way to ensure quick access to your property in the case of an emergency whilst also guaranteeing maximum security. If you simply give a spare key to an individual or even another member of staff, there is still room for human error and for the key to get lost or stolen. This presents a real security risk. As specialists in the field, at NVC we keep your keys safe and secure. You can be sure that only our qualified, authorised security staff will have access to your keys.

You rest easy knowing your property is safe

Our keyholding service is a 24 hour service, 365 days a year. That means that when you’re off work, you really are off. If an alarm goes off at your building in the middle of the night or while you’re on holiday, it’s the security company that deals with it. You can rest assured that everything will be taken care of quickly and professionally. No need for trips to the office in the middle of the night or frantic calls from a foreign country to try and sort everything out.

Personal safety for you and your staff

Not only does the keyholding service save you hassle, it also keeps you and your employees or colleagues safe. If an alarm sounds out of hours there is a chance that there is an intruder or a dangerous situation. Our staff are trained to deal with such instances, and will handle the situation on your behalf. You will never have to place yourselves or other staff in an uncertain, potentially hazardous situation that you are not equipped to deal with. This makes an outsourced keyholding service advantageous from an occupational health and safety point of view as well.

Controlled access for visitors

Should external people such as repairs workers or plumbers need access to the building out of hours, we can be there to let them in and supervise their visit, ensuring the doors are locked again afterwards and that the building is still secure whilst they are there. This takes out the hassle and extra work for you and makes sure no opportunist criminals find their way in when the building is unlocked.

A deterrent for criminals

As part of our keyholding service we can also provide visual deterrents for malicious intruders, for example in the form of signage or patrol staff. Here at NVC, we always offer a complete service, which can be tailored to meet the precise needs of your company. This can include, for example, reviewing your premises to see if there are any existing threats and remedying any gaps in security.

We offer a whole range of professional, reliable security services. If you would like to learn more about our keyholding service, or any of our other services, please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can reach our expert team on 01332 806996 or by sending an email to
