Rick and Michelle have been fantastic to work with. They are very knowledgeable, easy to talk to and always quick at handling my requests. The technicians are also great. My installation was a little complicated and they were good at explaining how to approach the situation and what were the alternatives. Great people to work with overall.
We’ve been using Burglar Stop for close to 20 years now, we first heard about them through our parents who used them way back too, and we’re definitely satisfied with the security their systems provide. Their services are excellent. They have fine prices. We really have no complaints.
I moved into a new place and wanted to be ensure it was safe. Dan came into my place and walked me through a few options. John was the installer, also very pleasant to deal with. I would recommend Burglar Stop to anyone who wants great service at a good price.
Burglar Stop redid our alarm system so it would have monitoring and they were very good. The guy who we talked with and got it all set up was awesome, really informative. We really have no complaints about these guys and they also do the monitoring for our restaurant. Overall we’re quite satisfied with Burglar Stop.
Burglar Stop was really great—friendly and professional. The two guys that came and installed a system for us did a really good job. They finished in half the time they thought they would, and even though they ran into a couple obstacles they were able to figure it out pretty easily.
Got the Burglar Stop system after a break inn, like most people. Did a lot of research before deciding on Burglar Stop. I liked the fact that there were no complaints with the BBB in 3 years unlike the bigger companies that do a lot of radio advertising. They have been in business for over 25 years and their monitoring station is local as well. They were the only company to offer to send out someone to look at my home. I met with Dan and we did a walk through my home. He was very professional and no high pressure sales. We are very happy with their service.
