As security experts with over 15 years of experience in the locksmithing industry we have put together the following guide to finding the right local locksmith for you!
What is the reason?
Locked out of your house or did you lose your keys all together? Once you know exactly what type of locksmith service you require, it is time to call your local locksmith!
Find a local locksmith.
You can go online using your computer or smart phone and search through the thousands of adverts or you can call Keytek™ NOW on 0800 035 0451 and have a local locksmith with you in 30 minutes*.
Find out if they can do the job.
As an example not all locksmiths have the ability to create vehicle keys, so if you have lost your car key we recommend to refine your search to specifically include ‘Auto Locksmith’ or ‘Car key Cutting’, however if you are locked out of your car (which is more often the case) then Keytek™ can help. Our local emergency locksmiths are trained in non-destructive opening techniques to ensure you are not locked out of your car for too long.
Safes as described are ‘safe’ and secure even from some of the most skilled locksmiths. The majority of domestic locksmiths will only be able to supply or open smaller sized safes i.e. key or document safes. Larger sized safes such as floor mounted or cash safes will require a safe specialist locksmith that is specifically trained in safe opening.
Find out how much the locksmith will cost you.
Any locksmith should be able to give you a quote/close estimate for the work that will be performed. Here at Keytek™ we ask a few short questions to get a better view of what’s needed enabling us to give a more accurate quote over the phone. All of our local locksmiths will aim to repair** over replacing parts to try and help keep costs down for you. Any parts we do replace come with a 12 month guarantee for your own peace of mind.
Don’t be afraid to ask for identification.
All of our Engineers carry an ID badge so don’t be afraid to ask to see it. If you are not sure of the locksmith’s credibility you can always call the company and they will be more than happy to confirm his current location and name. Some locksmiths will also offer a 10 minute warning call to make you aware the locksmith is nearly there.
Sit back and watch a professional at work.
Now that you have booked a trustworthy and credible locksmith you can be rest assured that any locksmith service you require will be dealt with to your satisfaction and equally as important your peace of mind.
