I have been using Zed Security for the past 4 years and have always been completely satisfied with the service they provide…
I very seldom write letters of commendation to security companies, but the service I received… was the most professional and experienced that I have worked with in recent times… I congratulate you and your colleagues for a job well done. I enjoyed coordinating the visit and working with your team members.
I cannot recommend Z Security highly enough, we have worked together for a number of years now on large scale events such as Tom Jones, Craig David, Tears for Fears. The Team are always helpful, professional and calming throughout the entire process…
Each and every member of their (Zed Security and Guarding) staff are always prepared to do whatever is necessary to facilitate the smooth running of our events and ‘go the extra mile’ without fuss or drama!
Any extra demands or challenges that we impose on them (Zed Security and Guarding) are dealt with positively, with a smile, without complaint and it is a pleasure to have them on board.
Thanks to you (Zed Security and Guarding) for such a professional job… your team sensed when and where security was needed and just got on with it… I cannot thank you enough for the way you all dealt with the sad end to the evening… you and your team were there in no time and dealt with the situation....
Thank you for providing efficient and friendly staff, and I hope some of them will be back next year.
You guys were awesome!
