In this article today, security concepts services, will try and answer some of the most commonly asked questions concerning party & events security hire, security companies hire and general security guards hired.
Today we’ve decided to do this blog in a pop-up fashion, so endeavour to click on each question heading, and you will find your answers.

Once you have done that, only go with the security company you believe, can provide the right security services you require, based on website and reviews contents. Do not settle for any vendor because they are the cheapest security or most expensive security company. Being cheap does not mean they will provide you with the best guards and excellent services, neither being expensive. Only go with the security company you find them to be professional, have good reviews, have contents on their page that relates to the service you require. If possible check the security companies names on Google news section or youtube, you may find positive or negative news about them that could help decide if you are going with the most suitable security company.
Once you have made your choice, send the security companies an email, and from their response, you will have a clear idea of what security company is best for you.
Such factors could be:
We arrive at the above security hire price, factoring costs like; licensing and administration, insurance, premium service delivery, quality of security guards, and their security guard remuneration package. Some dodgy security companies may charge you even $29 per hour, take note such companies are highly likely practising wage theft, they may supply you unlicensed security guards, and may not have public liability insurance. If anything goes wrong, they wash their hands do a runner.
I like to add, be careful when a security company offer you a cheap quote below $36 per hour for in Australia. They may charge you below cost, but that means the security guards you will have are most likely being underpaid, and you might get sub-standard or unlicensed guards working at your event, site or organisation.

Armed security guards cost, is one of the most expensive in the security industry. An estimate of between $65-$150 per hour for armed security hire. The price could even go higher, depending on the risk, task, the geographical region and the operations.
The cost above is an estimate of a local armed guard, doing cash escort in Australia. Take note on a few security companies in Australia are licensed to provide armed security guard services.
So the security hire price listed here is for security companies that offer professional services, companies you can trust to look after your event, assets or site. Please check our blog ‘ Tips before you hire a security company,’ it will help guide you to understand how to hire right and not base on price.
Also, you may need to hire security, to improve the party and safety experience of your guest. You can also check our blog ‘ duties of events security guards; it may help guide you on why you might require security at your event.
So it depends on what kind of security services you require. I will advise you to check their website and see what they offer, learn about their history; once again check their reviews and decide who to go with.
There is no particular single security company I can mention as,‘ best security company in Australia’.You rate security companies, base on their experience, their management and quality delivery systems, if they pay their guards the right wage-it means they are likely to attract high-quality security officers. We also look at their current and past security contracts, and one crucial thing again, always check Google news section or Youtube about the company and see if there are any positive or negative news about them. The last thing you want is a private security company with a negative reputation that will affect your organisation brand.
