​Relocating to a new home is very stressful, so it is easy to forget to secure the new property. There are some basic precautions which can minimise risks.

Using a reputable removal company helps to ensure safe transportation of possessions. Homeowners should replace all locks on the doors, windows, garages and sheds at the new property, using an approved locksmith. These professionals can advise about specific locks, for which duplicate keys are difficult to obtain. Approved burglar alarms and any other required systems like external sensor lights can add extra security to a home. Any equipment that may aid a potential thief should be secured and locked away.

As with any modifications, homeowners should check with their insurance company to ensure they meet the conditions of their policies. A security professional or local police officer may be able to review security arrangements, and then provide advice on further precautions.
