Five Things to Expect From Your Local Locksmith

When you’re in need of a locksmith, it can be difficult to know which one to pick. How much do they cost? Where are they based? And how quickly can they get to you?

But a locksmith can do more than just replace a lock in an emergency. In fact, a locksmith can be the person you need to help beef up your home security in more ways than you could imagine. We’ve put our heads together to tell you five key things you should expect from your local locksmith. So, without further ado, here they are:

1

The ability to complete a full home security review

The ability to complete a full home security review

A home security review is not simply about whether you have the right type of locks installed. It includes a thorough assessment of all access points, potential weak spots, lighting, your garden and much more. A professional locksmith should be able to conduct a full and thorough review, giving you a run down of all the things that need to change to make your home security more watertight.

2

Experience in the industry

Nowadays, when we’re looking for something or someone, our first port of call is usually the internet. But picking a search result at random isn’t always the best approach. Choose to work with a locksmith who has a long heritage in the area they work in. After all, experience is key! At Chubb Locksmiths, we’ve been working in and around the West Midlands for years and have a solid reputation for being professional and efficient.

Unfortunately, there are many rogue traders out there who will have you believe that having the locks changed costs hundreds. In fact, it doesn’t, and there should not be any hidden costs. Find out all costs in advance of any work and only pay when the work has been completed.

While some locksmiths might be experts in certain types of lock, the chances are that he or she can open 99.9% of doors and locks. But contrary to popular belief, it’s not always a quick job! Some locks are harder to get into than others, and even locksmiths have to use some elbow grease!
