    "We approached Region Security Guarding with an urgent need for security at a large site in Pineham, Northamptonshire. They provided us with a quotation within the hour and managed to resource a security guard for the following day. The security guard worked on the site for a two-month period and was punctual, reliable, and professional throughout. Any queries or requests that we had throughout this period, were actioned promptly by the Region Security manager. We would definitely recommend using Region Security, as they provided an excellent service for a reasonable price."

After using an unreliable costly company for several years it is a pleasure to do business with Region Security. Thank you Namrita and team!”
