OSS partners with the UK’s number 1 keyholding and alarm response specialist


Leaving your property unattended can be a worry. That’s why OSS prides itself on removing the hassle and stress when being away – whether that be your business or home.


Today OSS are pleased to announce a partnership with The Keyholding Company, the UK’s number 1 keyholding and alarm response specialist. The relationship ensures that OSS can continue to deliver on its highest standards. 


Many of the UK’s most respected brands, as well as government departments, public agencies, schools, hospitals and homeowners trust The Keyholding Company when required to send trained and accredited responders to access your property, assess the situation and handle any escalation, so you don’t have to bother colleagues or neighbours.


How does keyholding work?


Holding keys is not rocket science – but selecting the right team to be prepped and ready to access your property in the middle of the night, is an important decision.


One of our surveyors collects your keys taking note of special instructions for accessing the property and resetting the alarm. Keys are then electronically tagged and stored in an accredited facility. If your alarm sounds or we’re notified by the team monitoring your property, we dispatch our best-placed responder with your keys to access the situation and, if needed, request emergency services, liaising with the police on your behalf.


The Keyholding Company operates a 24-hour Hub, manned by security experts, dedicated to the smooth management of all our jobs across the UK. They specialise in just this which means, they’re pretty good at it.
