Testimonials From Our Clients

Providing security services to individuals and businesses means that we always emphasise putting the needs of our clients first. It’s for that reason that we offer all of our Devon security services on a bespoke basis, tailoring our operations to fit the unique requirements of each individual or business that we serve.

Once a plan of action has been arranged with a client, our SIA licenced Exeter security guards work tirelessly to protect people, assets and property, keeping you and the Devon community safe from damage and crime. It’s because of that hard work that we are always thrilled to receive responses from our clients. We’ve arranged a small selection of comments from our recent clients below, so you can see exactly why we’re considered one of the most trusted security companies in Exeter & Devon.


Altitude was in its second year and as a family friendly festival , increasing capacity from last year, we wanted a security team that could tailor their service to our specific needs. From initial planning through to on the day delivery, Dave spear and his team provided a first rate flexible service. We felt that we were in capable hands and the staff gave us the peace of mind that we needed, throughout the whole event. Friendly but firm, professional and courteous, the guys exceeded our expectations and we wouldn’t hesitate using this excellent company again.

Thanks to all. Altitude

Exeter City Council

To whom it may concern

The Exeter Businesses Against Crime (EBAC) partnership decided in autumn 2012 to employ the services of a qualified security officer to help educate members on the use of the radio and how to identify and deter known, and potential, shoplifters operating within the city centre. Platinum Gate Security were given the two-month contract and proved so successful in this role that there were invited to continue with a six-month contract in 2013. The officers employed displayed a very high level of integrity and professionalism and the partnership will look in the future to once again make use of their services and I have no hesitation in recommending their operational effectiveness to all others.

On the Estate we have employed Platinum Gate Security for several years. The Estate comprises a very large car park leading to a popular beach. it also has a river with moorings and various properties around and about.

Platinum provide security throughout the summer season on a nightly basis.
The guards not only check cars entering the estate but do regular patrols of all the facilities. They keep records of any events which might occur and deal with any situation which might demand their attention.

TD Williams

I can confirm that Platinum Gate Security have provided an excellent professional, efficient and reliable service here at Wellington School for the last few years. The School community not only has complete faith in their work but also has a great deal of respect for the swift but diplomatic way that occasional security issues are dealt with on campus. Indeed Platinum Gate Security are now considered to be part of that Wellington School community.

I have no intention of seeking to contract any other company in the near future in relation to security services as the service we receive from Dave Spear and his team is first class.

Anthony Bunt | Regional Security Manager, England 2015, Rugby World Cup

From planning to delivery of the Rugby World Cup, Platinum Gate Security were professional, competent and trustworthy. Dave and his team welcomed us to observe, critique and adapt the security operation at Sandy Park and work hand in hand with the RWC team in planning and delivering the security operation at the stadium. Throughout the month long contract, there were no missed shifts and they adapted to ever changing conditions and operational requirements that were thrown at them by the complex operation. Without a doubt, PGS are one of the best security companies that I have had the pleasure of working with and I was delighted with the job they did.
