5.4 Competitive Edge

Safe Keeping's affordable one time cost package is new to the security market. Traditionally a monthly fee to watch homes or businesses is more than a lot of people want to pay, or they do not feel the need for such comprehensive coverage.

Safe Keeping fills a untapped niche to help businesses and homeowners document valuables, and learn how to better secure their properties against possible theft. With trained law enforcement expertise on staff our company can help businesses and homeowners protect their properties at a minimal cost.
