Prices For Hiring Bodyguard Services 

The numbers and what factors affect the price

The first question that often arises when considering private security and personal protective services is what it may cost. It is a common misconception that having a bodyguard is a privilege required only by presidents or celebrities stalked by obsessed fans. In reality people from different environments hire security companies for personal protection and to withstand threats and provocations. 

What really affects the price

Without any doubt the most important factor that affects the costs for any security services, and personal protection services in particular, is the quality. 

There are hundreds of security companies that provide their services for seemingly competitive prices and lots of individuals but also companies fall for this trap.
And a trap it is because in the private security market the proof is evident that security companies providing services for budget rates always provide budget quality.

The problem is that it is not always directly visible for clients whether a bodyguard is good or not. Any company could send out a good looking bodyguard that impresses a client and his surroundings with his looks, suit or behaviour. But the difference is how a professional, high quality bodyguard shapes the environment for his client, prevents risk and efficiently protects his client from attack.

Serious close protection agents have backgrounds within governmental protection units and simply loads of experience working around the world protecting high-end clients. 

And they know their worth!

High quality bodyguards simply do not, in any way, work for the rates that budget security providers ask. It is really just as simple as that. 

This without a doubt doesn't make the opposite true. A low quality company asking high prices doesn't make it a better one. 
Therefore serious investigation is needed when wanting personal protection services. 

We truly believe that anyone needing serious personal protection services deserves the best available. If there is a serious threat, no one should ever consider lower quality services out of budgetary considerations. 

Your life and that of your loved ones is the most important thing in the world and only quality and efficiency should be the key factors in making a decision.
