What people are saying about us...
Oliver Wolfryd, Director Project MET
We employed Live-in Guardians Limited services to safeguard our building in WC2 which was vacant awaiting planning permission. This has not only helped us reduce our costs, including a significant reduction in our empty business rates (over £100,000), but given us peace of mind that our building is protected and safe. From the initial appointment of Live-in Guardians, they offered an innovative and cost effective approach to vacant property protection. We found all Live-in Guardian staff and guardians helpful, responsive and a pleasure to deal with. Without hesitation, we would strongly recommend the service Live-in Guardians has to offer based on our own positive experience.
