“I have been using Advantage One as the sole provider for my security officers and store detectives, within my region, for over seven years, and have always been completely satisfied with their service level. I have also recommended their services to my colleagues covering other regions of the UK.

They have never dropped a shift and their security officers are always prompt. Any issues have been dealt with in a timely and efficient manner. I also use their store detectives and find them extremely efficient and effective. They provide a very personalised service to my stores.

I have often used them for short notice, adhoc work and can say that I can not remember a time when they have been unable to provide officers, even with little or no notice from me.

I am happy to recommend the services of Advantage One Security. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.”
