Reviews and Testimonials are the Lifeblood of an Online Business


At Insight Security we fully appreciate the importance of our customers and their satisfaction. Everything we do is focused on the needs of our customers, from the careful selection and curation of products for our online store to the packaging and couriers we use. In this post we reflect on some of the many reviews and testimonials we’ve recently received.

We don’t take our customers or their opinions for granted. We understand the importance of online reviews and the social proof they provide to potential customers. Surveys have demonstrated that over 93% of consumers say online reviews influence their purchasing decisions and customers are 63% more likely to trust brands that have online reviews compared to brands that have no reviews.

Unfortunately, most consumers have had bad experiences with companies at one time or another, both online and offline. Online reviews provide valuable insight directly from those who’ve experienced a brand, their service and the products they supply. If prospective customers know that others have had a positive experience this helps raise their confidence and overcome any fears or hesitancy they may have.

Importantly, our online reviews validate the expertise Insight Security happily provides to those who need it. Our reviews demonstrate how we’ve helped people overcome their specific challenges and fulfilled their needs. They also repeatedly reflect the high quality of the products we supply alongside our outstanding customer service.

Great Products and Exemplary Customer Service

Here are just a selection of customer reviews, praising the products we’ve supplied along with our customer service.

Great customer experience, I wasn’t exactly sure what I needed or what was available, I spoke to 3 members of staff over a couple of days after measuring etc, every single one of them was helpful, knowledgeable and I wa able to buy just what I needed. Would recommend to anyone, thanks -

Very good customer service indeed! One of the ladies there even dropped off the saw-tooth galvanised steel anti-burglar strip I bought. I have no car (a friend was going to drive me) and this lady had an appointment in Eastbourne - I live in Willingdon, not far away.

- Anna Borsey

As Anna has reported, since she lives quite close to the Insight Security headquarters in Lewes a member of staff was happy to drop off her order at her home in Willingdon.

J.T. From Texas Rates our Door Security Bars

Our shed door security bars have been highly praised in this comprehensive review from J.T., based in Texas, USA.

Do you ever wake up at night worried about the safekeeping of your property? I did. I own a lake house in the deep woods of East Texas. I have two storage areas where I keep fishing tackle, boating accessories, water sports gear, tools, and equipment. One area is situated on the ground floor of the lake house and the other area is located on the boat dock.

Since my family only occupies the house occasionally, I was concerned about the safekeeping of my property. In 2016, I decided that the best and most cost-effective solution to my problem was a security bar for each door. I searched the Internet for security bars made in the United States, but I was unable to find any. I went to a local metal fabrication shop, but the owner was not interested in making the security bars.

Finally, I found Insight Security in Lewes, East Sussex, UK. I reviewed Insight Security’s website and called Insight Security the next day. I ordered a standard 1200mm security bar for the door of the ground floor storage area and a special 2000mm security bar for the boat dock double doors.

The customer service representative was immensely helpful, and I conveniently paid for the security bars with a credit card. Insight Security delivered the security bars to my home in Texas within 10 days. I installed the security bars myself.

Finally, I had the perfect solution for safekeeping my property. Security bars from Insight Security declare to would be burglars, “Keep out!” The security bars are made of solid steel, and they are 40mm wide and 10mm thick. The security bars pass through two steel brackets that are securely affixed to the wood frame of the building. With the security bars in place, a burglar may remove the doorknob, but the door will not open, and the door cannot be taken off of it`s hinges.

In 2021, the lake house was extensively remodeled, and the security bar for the door of the ground floor storage area went missing. I surmise that one of the workers put it in a waste container. Once again, I was anxious about the safekeeping of my property. I immediately called Insight Security and ordered a new security bar. Once again, Insight Security delivered the new security bar to my home in Texas within 10 days. I at once drove to the lake house and installed the new security bar.

Now I can rest assured that my property is safe and secure. I highly recommend Insight Security to anyone who is concerned about the safekeeping of their property.

- J.T.

J.T. highlights how, back in 2016, although he had searched for a USA based provider, he was unable to find a suitable door security solution to protect his valuables. And he even visited a metal fabricator, who was unable to help. He then discovered the website.

Shed Door Security Bar

As noted, he has two doors that needed additional security, a standard width door and a set of double doors on his boat dock. The Insight Security Shed Door security bar solution was ideal for his needs. He’s another customer who praises the support we provided, along with the security solution. He also highlights how his order was with him at his Texas address within just 10 days and how he was able to install the security bars himself.

J.T. was clearly very impressed with the design and construction of the super-tough Insight Security shed door security bars. But in 2021 his lake house was remodelled and he lost the shed bar for his storage area. So he ordered a replacement from Insight Security which, like his original order, arrived at his home within 10 days. He installed the replacement security bar himself and is now able to relax in the knowledge that his property is safe and secure.

Wall Anchor, Chain and Lock Strong Enough for Anything

In this next example review Geof highlights the robustness of the supplied security products.

Brilliant! Ordered a Beefy Bridge wall anchor at 13:20 on Friday and it was in my hands 24 hours and 20 minutes later, very impressive. Also purchased an 800 X 16mm chain and a RoundLock, the weight of this lot was 2kg heavier than the bike I am securing!! I’m fairly certain that this set up could be used to protect your space shuttle or oil rig from the thieving little gits. One thing to note is that the kit comes with the correct drill bit, good job I checked before a trip to B&Q to buy one, just make sure your drill can take such a big bit though. Extremely helpful staff (Chris) offered valuable advice and I am very happy to recommend this company and their products.

- Geof Turner

The reviewer notes how the high security chain and RoundLock supplied by Insight Security are, in his opinion, tough enough to secure a space shuttle or oil rig. We are pleased to hear how the support and advice we provided has enabled Geof to protect his valuable bike from ‘thieving little gits’.

Effective Perimeter Security Keeping Animals and Intruders at Bay

We offer an extensive range of tried and tested perimeter security solutions. In this next couple of reviews we see how ultra-safe plastic security spikes effectively discourage cats from climbing where they are not welcome while Razor Point anti climb spikes present a formidable barrier.

Delivery was quick, and the plastic spikes do a reasonably good job keeping our cat off the shed.

- Alexander Massmann

We know how difficult it is to protect property from cats, who are naturally skilled in overcoming obstacles. Our range of safe, plastic anti climb spikes are widely deployed along fence tops, walls and gates where they present a highly effective cat deterrent.

I bought some Razor Point Anti-climb spike to stop intruders climbing over gates, and I would highly recommend them. Not only are they very sharp and robust, they look really vicious as well so are a great visual deterrent. Insight sent out the goods really fast and would definitely buy from again.

- Ady Goodrich

Unlike our plastic anti-cat spikes, Razor Point anti climb spikes are a tough and aggressive looking anti climb solution. As Ady has reported in this review, they are sharp, robust and look nasty. Their appearance along a wall or fence-top is enough to deter any intruders. And Ady is another reviewer who praises the fast delivery of his order.
