What Are The Specific Security Challenges of a Car Dealership?
Car dealerships are fascinating businesses that require unique logistics, sales, and security measures. When it comes to the security of a car dealership, there are a few unique challenges that dealerships have to face. In this article, we will be highlighting a few of these challenges and how dealerships can overcome them.
Poor Security Measures
First and foremost, the biggest challenge with car dealership security is overcoming their existing poor security measures. While many car dealerships have put in some general security measures, there are often areas of their property that are unprotected.
To avoid being targeted, car dealers need to make sure that they have all of their bases covered. All vulnerabilities must be identified and addressed immediately, and an alarm security system should be set up in all cases.
A Large Lot of Cars
Just like any other retail business, car dealerships have large amounts of merchandise. However, the sheer amount of valuable merchandise that is constantly left on the lot means dealerships are a juicy target for potential thefts.
Because of this, dealerships need to incorporate various security measures to protect their lot. The most important step is to have a fence or secure perimeter. Another solution would be to add security guards or security cameras to the premise.
Valuable Property Left Outside
Unlike most businesses where goods are brought into the store overnight, car dealerships often leave vehicles outside and unguarded overnight. Therefore, car dealership owners need to consider a connected internal and external security system.
The best way to manage this challenge is through a connected security system. With video monitoring, card access, and motion detecting alarms, car dealerships can guard valuable merchandise anywhere on their property.
