SafeSite Isle of Wight – Keeping Properties Secure


Here are some nice words from some of our clients.

When we acquired our site The former East Cowes Medical Centre, it had a history of break-ins and vandalism including one that happened the weekend before we took possession! We met Richard and Lisa from Safesite who took the time to understand our requirements. They then came up with a cost effective security solution that has given us peace of mind particularly as we are not resident on the Island.

They have been guarding the site now for 7 months and we are extremely happy with the service they have provided, they are flexible and have taken action outside their initial remit to ensure the site is safe at all times. We would not hesitate to recommend their services.

On behalf of all those working to save the neglected Grade II listed Frank James Memorial Hospital at East-Cowes IOW, I am once again pleased to acknowledge the very valuable help given by Richard Manser of SafeSite, who contacted us after hearing of our concerns following a series of vandalism and theft incidents there. Without expectation of payment, Richard immediately secured the most vulnerable entry points to the building and perimeter, ending that spate of damaging illegal entries, and he has since continued to provide further assistance and advice to the Friends of Frank James volunteers.

As a result of that help, in addition to restoring the professional level of building security which had been noticeably lacking for several years, the Friends were finally able to persuade the absentee owners to become more responsible after a long period of inaction, and were also then offered further help from other bodies and the local authority which produced long overdue essential repair work.

More recently, when the adjacent former Health Centre was finally sold after years of disuse (and additional theft & vandalism), the new absentee owner immediately contracted Safesite to improve and maintain security there, since when both sites have been untroubled by harmful illegal entry.

The Friends of Frank James will always be hugely grateful for the help given by Safesite, which has undoubtedly made a vital contribution to securing the future of a much-loved, historically and architecturally important asset.

After all the stress of chasing trades and contractors I was hoping security would be the easy one. In the end I was grateful to the incumbent mainland operator for so quickly talking themselves out of the job! Richard and Lisa are an absolute breath of fresh air, knowledgeable, keen and happy to help they are a pleasure to deal with and I am pleased to recommend them. Great prices, great service and genuinely great people. Not only have they taken a weight of an already overburdened mind but they’ve reminded me what I love about community.

Richard and his team look after three properties for us in Ryde. They are secure and safe, and I am confident they will remain so. The service is always fast, friendly and professional.
