As many of you already know just collecting outdoor furniture and other pieces does not stop with simply buying it. You have to display and secure it from thieves and there are many different options for doing this over time. We’ll be discussing a few for you right now and also a few risks which you may have not thought about over time. Hopefully you will have the best understanding possible when you are done with this.
Gated communities are an okay solution but they do not give everything you might need in order to keep your items safe. This is because some thieves sneak into these posing as cleaning services and bring a van with them. They target houses that they have checked on social media in order to find out exactly when the person is on vacation. Afterwards they go in and just grab everything while there is no one to stop them and you come back to a home which has been fleeced of all the really valuable items.
Many pieces of contemporary outdoor furniture are easy to transport. Which makes it both beneficial for you and somewhat troublesome. Criminals have become much more advanced than many of us ever thought possible and therefore they have new methods with loaders and can strip a house extremely quickly with advanced tools. As such just having a fence in a gated community simply is not going to cut it anymore unless the crime rate in your area is extremely low.
Home security systems do provide some help but will not protect the exterior. As such they are a fine deterrent for criminals who are easily scared off but will do little to deter one who can avoid the external sensors, if you even have them. You may or may not depending on how you are setting everything up over time.
For those who have spent thousands of dollars on pieces you may need to have multiple layers including a security system and team in order to make sure that everything is properly secured. Of course if you have all of that then you probably have the money to pay for all of this. Only those with massive mansions would need this so you probably already have some idea of what you are doing if you have the resources to do this. As always make sure you can trust the people you have hired as well with the sheer value.
Even if you only have one major pieces of outdoor furniture it can be valuable and also be a target. Unfortunately once they have been stolen getting your pieces back can be incredibly difficult because it is not terrible hard to fence stolen pieces of furniture. So prevention is the key since you cannot expect anything else to work correctly once you have had the worst happen as well. Do not let your precautions eat into your style too much. Of course you should take that advice and be careful if crime has increased.
