Algeco Anti-Vandal units now available within 48 hours

Times are tough. Crime on sites is on the rise. But Spring is here and the days are getting longer. That means working time on sites is also extending. So to help customers remain agile, secure and take advantage of the season, Algeco is now offering anti-vandal units delivered in 48 hours.

Accommodation is often one of the last elements of a project to be arranged, because it is a comparatively small part of a bigger picture. So whilst other elements get delayed or clients change their mind, the deadline for starting on site doesn’t change, meaning accommodation lead times get squeezed. Compounded by accommodation needed to be amongst the first equipment on site, to provide welfare facilities for workers. Algeco understands this conundrum and the need for agility from suppliers, which is why it is offering units in stock for delivery in 48 hours.      

According to CIOB (Chartered Institute of Building), the most common forms of crime in the construction industry are theft and vandalism, with losses running into millions of pounds each year. A survey by the organisation showed that 21% of respondents stated that they experience theft each week and, overall, 92% are affected weekly, monthly or yearly. The CIOB goes on to state that: ‘the industry needs to seriously consider the prevention of theft’.

Costs relate not only to the crimes themselves but resulting financial penalties, such as increased insurance premiums and project delays. 

Algeco Anti-vandal units are specifically built to take a beating, deterring theft and damage. That makes them suitable for a wide and diverse range of applications from construction sites, manufacturing facilities, commercial premises and transport hubs, plus anywhere else that needs temporary buildings on flexible hire terms!

These sectors frequently utilise portable buildings for site offices, meeting rooms, canteens and mess rooms, security gatehouses, security storage containers and even blast-resistant units. 

Security features include a highly durable all-steel design, integral locking system, steel window shutters and doors with anti-jemmy edges. These are sufficient to reduce crime and repel the most persistent criminals. 

Customers needing additional accommodation can also take advantage of limited-time special deals on Anti-Vandal stock units from Algeco from as little as £20 per week for a 20 foot unit, with delivery in 48 hours. Larger sizes are also available at equally great prices*.

Algeco operates 22 sites around the UK, ensuring access to fast, local delivery. Customers can call to check local availability on: 0808 108 2222.

Tom Baker, Business Development Director at Algeco Hire said: “Theft and vandalism are the two most common crimes on construction sites, which is why we took the decision to help our customers tackle it by offering a compelling proposition on our anti-vandal range.”

Tom added: “But a range of high security space solutions on flexible terms, delivered in 48 hours is an attractive offer to many businesses in the current economic climate. Special deals for a limited time only is the cherry on the icing on the cake!”    

Anti-vandal buildings are also available with Algeco’s impressive 360 services – a huge range of interior and exterior facilities from fencing to furniture and foundations to fire protection. All delivered with the building, when and where customers need it.
