Running a gas station can be a demanding business endeavor. With the indoor market area and the outdoor pumps and ice machines, there’s many areas that must be monitored for safety purposes. So how can you protect your business from theft, vandalism and other security issues?
A good step in protecting your business is to equip all exterior doors with commercial deadbolt locks. You can also equip the windows with break sensors that wire into the alarm system. These tactics make it more difficult for thieves to successfully break into the station. Security cameras and strategically placed mirrors are an extra way to keep an eye on the interior, increasing the chance that you and your employees are able to catch thefts in progress.
Just like you have cameras inside your station, you should also position them outside for easy monitoring of the pump areas. Hanging signs that announce the presence of cameras may be a theft deterrent in itself. Another big outdoor security measure is adequate lighting. It’s easier for thieves to get in and out of dark places without detection. A well-lit area becomes a less desirable target.
However, even with comprehensive security measures in place, there is still risk involved with owning or managing a gas station. Ensure the continued protection of your business with the help of a gas station insurance policy. Our agency can help you find the right coverage for price that fits your budget.
