Theme / Amusement Parks, Museums, Tourist Attractions & Zoos

“We had thousands of items, especially left by groups, we had to deal with and try to reunite visitors, including children with. Now ZBS alleviates that paid and worry for us all and we are making more people happy than ever before”
-Mrs E, Customer Service Lead, London Museum

Zero Burden Service represents a fast, easy and responsible way for you to manage property lost at theme parks and other similar destinations. We can save you a great deal of time, effort, space (and yes) money.

Providing even minimal lost property services to your patrons is probably costing you 800 staff hours per park per year. That’s around £11,000! (Assuming approximately 5,000 lost items and 3,000 inquiries)

We offer a versatile, east to use and literally free service to arenas and other organisations like yours. We can help you greatly increase your operational efficiency by cutting the amount of staff time you have to dedicate to lost property services to literally seconds per item. We handle collection, storage, owner identification, repatriation, security, compliance and all other aspects of the lost property service. That means your patrons will be more likely to recover lost items and the cost to you will be dramatically lessened. Everyone wins.

ZBS is fast, simple and free to use.

How Zero Burden Service works at theme parks:

Step 1: Item Registration

A member of your staff photographs lost items turned in to them with any smart phone running our app, the log in a brief description. This process literally takes around 30 seconds, even for new users of the system.

Step 2: Item Storage and ZBS Pick-Up

Simply drop the item into the secure pick-up container we provide. Our carefully vetted and highly trained couriers will seal the container securely and take it in to our storage facility at the end of your event.

Step 3: Item Return

If anyone asks after a lost item simply refer them to the website. We’ll repatriate the item safely and securely for a small fee, payable by the owner. Note that our item repatriation rate is as high as 97%, much higher than traditional lost and found rates!

Step 4: Recycling of Unclaimed Items

Any items which remain unclaimed for a reasonable period of time will be disposed of ethically. In many cases this means repairing or refurbishing them and selling them at auction. Other items will be upcycled, recycled or otherwise disposed of safely and ethically. If any profit is to be realised from the sale or disposal of unclaimed items turned in to your location, your organisation would receive a share of those profits.
