"The purpose of this email is to commend two outstanding representatives of your customer service unit: Tchallah Pinkard and Sarah Sullivan.

Customer Praise For Guardian Alarm

Our sales, installation and customer service teams are often praised while many of our behind the scenes employees go unnoticed. However, this wonderful letter was written about two of our accounting team members:

"Time goes by so fast that we often lose track of it and don’t follow up on positive things but always address negative things. I wanted to stop time for a moment and express my appreciation for the assistance provided by two of your employees; Ms. Tiffany Newby (pictured, left) and Ms. Sherry Droze (pictured, right).

Both of these ladies have been efficient, polite and professional every time I contact them for assistance. They reply promptly to email messages and contact me via phone as needed when I have questions. It is my pleasure to work with both of them on our account to resolve billing issues." Inez G. - Redford, MI (10/6/14)

New Customer Raves to Neighbors About Guardian Alarm

Larry Boitel - Guardian Alarm security consultant
A new customer recently sent a copy of the following letter to his neighbors:

"If you are in the market for a new security system, or planning to switch alarm companies, I would definitely call Larry Boitel at Guardian Alarm. For 15+ years we have used another alarm company to which we were moderately pleased with. My in-laws recently switched and, on their recommendation, I called Guardian to inquire.

A very professional retired State Trooper arrived (early) to discuss my options with no intention of trying to 'up-sell' me on services that I didn't need nor want. Larry Boitel was thorough, honest, concise, efficient and made the transfer of services seamlessly easy for both my residential and commercial property. Not only did he transfer the alarm service for free (including new pad and box), but saved me money monthly on both properties! BONUS! If you are in the market, give him a call and see what he has to offer."

Great job, Larry! Keep up the terrific work. To reach Larry, ask for him at 1-800-STAY-OUT (800-782-9688).

Longtime Guardian Alarm customer Carol L. from Southfield, Michigan, recently wrote this letter about longtime employee Tina Fishpaw, who recently transitioned from our Monitoring Department to our Residential Sales Team.

"Recently, Tina Fishpaw, Security Consultant, advised my husband and myself about possible replacement of our security system.

We have been customers for over 42 years and the reason for change being we had new windows installed in our Condo. Ms. Fishpaw gave us options and we decided to upgrade.
Ms. Fishpaw was very professional, knowledgeable, caring, patient and answered all of our questions.

I did ask for an experienced technician due to upgrade and additional items. She also gave us her card and offered any further assistance.

I am writing this to you to say you have exemplary employees on your staff. That is why we stayed with Guardian Alarm.

Another ADT Customer Switches to Guardian Alarm

Bryan Duff
Guardian Alarm Security Consultant
Our new Grand Rapids customer Deborah K. recently switched her account from ADT. She wrote to our Security Consultant Bryan Duff (pictured):

"I want to thank you so much, for how helpful, friendly, informative, and professional you were today.

It was such a relief to talk with someone who CARED that my home wasn't secure, due to an accident to our ADT equipment. ADT certainly didn't care, or they would have offered to repair their equipment sooner than 3 weeks time!!

I am also completely thrilled that your technician is coming out TOMORROW!! I seriously wish we would have known about Guardian before we had spent the past 10 years with ADT!! After all, if a company can't respond to a problem, when you have the problem, then what good are they? Any company could have taken our money for ten years, without doing anything for it.

Again, thank you SO MUCH!! I will definitely talk to everyone that I know, about the wonderful difference between Guardian and ADT!!"

Best Customer Service Among Home Security Providers

Matt Coyler
Guardian Alarm Installer
When Guardian Alarm was started in 1930, founder Milton Pierce made customer service the cornerstone of his success. Today that dedication to serving the customer is still a top priority for the company.
Case in point, new home security system customer Earnest Whaley contacted Guardian Alarm management to express how impressed he was during a recent visit by Guardian Alarm installer Matt Colyer. Earnest explained that due to a closed head injury from his time in the U. S. Military, he sometimes has a hard time understanding instructions. He stated that Matt took his time and patiently explained everything to him. Earnest wanted everyone to know that Guardian Alarm is fortunate to have Matt as an employee.
Everyone at Guardian thanks Matt for his excellent customer service. Keep up the great work! Visit their website for more info about Guardian Alarm's customer service department.

Home Security Customer Chooses Guardian Alarm Over ADT

Cavin Collier:
Guardian Alarm, Security Consultant
We love getting letters, and customers, like this!

"FYI we are new Guardian Alarm customers (as of last night), and you should know I actually had an appointment to install an ADT system this (Friday) afternoon, but cancelled it after we decided to go with Guardian.

Your quality & reputation played a role, but a significant reason was also Cavin. We found him to be a great salesman--very straight forward with good detailed knowledge of the system and packages, honest and candid, didn't push too hard but talked us through options and made his recommendations, and overall just really easy to work with.

The world is full of those who complain when they are dissatisfied with something, and far too few people speak up when there's something positive to say. So I felt compelled to write you this note... and (although he did provide your contact information at my request) please note it was totally prompted by me, not by Cavin!

We are now Guardian customers because of this experience." George H.
