Alarms: Worth considering, worth the cost

  • An alarm system should be a priority for a business premise. It provides peace of mind to business owners, especially outside business hours.
  • There are now a wide variety of alarm systems on the market to suit any situation and any budget.
  • Systems have become more efficient and reliable utilising the latest technology.
  • A great system that is available are the Navigator Systems from NES Corporation. Andrew Reilly from Wire-Not Electrical can obtain and install this system at a very good price if you live in Brisbane. His telephone number is 07 36330118 and email address is andrew@wire-not.com.auand his web site is www.wire-not.com.au     For additional information about these alarms Read more here.
  • If you have an alarm system, use it! Activate your alarm system — Alarm systems are only useful when you remember to activate them.
  •  Many individuals have alarm systems but do not arm them because it is inconvenient. Some burglars know this and will not be deterred by a window sticker or sign indicating that the home has an alarm system. Besides, many insurers will have clauses where they will limit or void cover if a burglary occurs but the alarm is not activated.
  • A common question is "Will it discount my premiums?" The answer is yes but not usually that significantly. What it will do though is limit the extent of any loss so for a Burglary sub limit, this can be chosen for a lower amount. Preventing a loss can also save you on the excess payable on insurance claims.
  • Burglary risks are expensive to insure. Repeated claims in this area can result in insurers refusing to even cover you for this event.
  • We also have a community duty to reduce theft, burglary and break ins. So an alarm system, even combined with a camera system can lead to a reduction in crime as the perpetrators are more likely to be caught and dealt with, backed with clear evidence.
  •  So make your business premises more secure. It may save you!

Robert Cooper - one of 100 faces of small business

This week it was announced as part of Small Business Week,  that Robert has been named one of the 100 faces of small business for a State Government promotion on the great value that small businesses play in the State of Queensland.

You can see Robert's entry here:

It is the third accolade for CPR Insurance Services in a month and after seven and a half years in business is a real pep up for the company.

For Robert, it is the culmination of many years experience, becoming well qualified, experiencing the highs and lows of a career and always wanting to contribute to his community. Sometimes, these things just come together and you receive recognition for your efforts.

Robert says that there is no doubt that starting your own business is a huge challenge, but with the right research and planning, the right people around you and a good set of values that you apply to the vision of the company, you have a very good chance of making it all succeed.

Robert says he is lucky. He has a strong supportive Wife, Mandy, who is also part of the business, along with efficient and hard working staff such as Julia McLauchlan and Aidan Harmer who are building up their own skills in a learning environment. 

However, the most important and most supportive people for CPR Insurance Services are our clients who have stuck by us and supported us over the past seven years. Our focus remains on providing the best possible service we can and always acting in their best interests. To all our clients, we say thank you!
