Avoid spooks this season by preparing your business for Halloween.

Halloween is right around the corner. As a homeowner, parent, and friend, you may already have your outfit sorted and candy ready for the trick-or-treaters. However, as a business owner, are you as equally prepared? Business owners should be especially cautious around the Halloween holiday, as some vandals take advantage of disguise on this night to wreak havoc. With commercial property insurance and the right precautions, there’s no need to fear for your business. Here are some tips to help.

Use the right lighting

You should make sure that visibility inside your business is good. Turn on outdoor lighting to reduce the risk of accidents and vandalism, and leave lights on overnight.

Secure vehicles

It’s wise to park commercial vehicles in very well-lit areas over Halloween. Better yet, store them in a locked garage with the windows up and the doors locked. If you or your team are out driving on Halloween, watch very closely for kids crossing the road and drive extra slowly. Remember that they may not be able to see out of their costumes very well and many costumes are not reflective to car lights.

Secure your business

Before you leave for the right, lock all doors and windows and set the alarm. Test the burglar and smoke alarms ahead of time. It’s a good idea to ensure that your property is well-lit on Halloween night as this tends to discourage vandalism. Consider installing and activating a security system, too.
