A handful of the clients we work with


“Having been a busy city centre bar and club for over 20 years, we have had our fair share of door companies. Unfortunately, most of them didn’t share the same ideas and vision of the type of customers we wanted in the bar or the type of establishment we strived to be.


After undergoing a massive refurbishment in 2012, we were again looking for a new security firm. This is when we found AVT. The difference was immediately obvious! The doormen completely understood the higher standard of clientele we wanted to come in the premises, but without making CC Blooms come across as pretentious. They just got it!


Since AVT came on board we have had a remarkable decrease in incidents, and been commended numerous times on how well we run our door and club by police.


As for the guys themselves – all are a pleasure to work with and extremely good at their jobs. They all have the right balance of fair and firm whilst still being personable and approachable.  All our staff agree they feel safe at work and supported by the strong door. The doormen also have a real willingness to work alongside staff and really help create a fun and safe environment, which makes every shift much easier.


I would thoroughly recommend AVT to any venue looking to be top of their game.”


Shell Cormack, CC Blooms

“Working with AVT was a pleasure. They provided staff that were prompt, polite, and effective.”

Sarah Fleming, Underbelly

“I am delighted to be given a chance to sing the praises of AVT Security. They are always punctual, smartly dressed and very friendly.

The team pay close attention to our customers, always putting their safety first, chatting and being charming, whilst making sure that no one is out of place or misbehaving.

We have had many security firms before, but find AVT to be the very best. After using AVT for events over the last few months, we would now not consider anyone else.

Ian Webb, Leith Theatre Trust
