Emergency locksmith service Close To You

We provide a 24/7 local locksmith service, and the term emergency locksmith refers to work carried out after regular hours. Although we always offer a competitive price, there will always be a difference in a quote depending on the time of day.

For example, if you require a new set of uPVC door locks, it will be cheaper during the 8 am – 6 pm window than at 2 am on a Sunday morning.

The price difference is the hourly labour rate. Asking someone to work during unsocial hours requires them to be compensated fairly.

A scheduled appointment during normal working hours is the most cost-effective solution. However, if you are locked out of your property, it doesn’t matter what the time of day is, is just need an emergency locksmith near me.

Three Types Of Locksmith Companies

Wherever you are in the UK, you may come across three different types of locksmith companies if you need a locksmith. They are:

The local locksmith. A local business and lives within your local community, making it easier for you to get hold of him for repeat business or even to honour his/her warranty.

National Locksmith Companies. A national locksmith company is based in one location, operating a call centre. They use newly trained locksmiths, often coming straight off one of their courses.

Generally, their hourly rate is more expensive to cover the cost of their advertising. Their locksmiths often have limited experience.

Rogue Traders. It pains us to admit this, but they’re our rogue traders within the locksmith industry. They often take advantage of the most vulnerable in our society.

A rogue locksmith will always offer a cheap price over the phone, but you’ll be asked to pay an inflated price when they finish the work.

Please, when looking for a locksmith near me, be careful. Read reviews and if they do not turn up in a sign written van, ask them to leave and find another locksmith.

Master Locksmiths Association

The Master Locksmiths Association is a self-appointed, pay to join organisation that monitors the locksmith industry, as the is no governmental body.

They offer courses that, if passed, prove a locksmith is at certain standards. They are a great organisation, but we are not members.

Our customer satisfaction, coupled with years of experience across residential and commercial properties, means we do not need their self appointed accreditation.

Whether you require locks on a new house, a door realigned, or locks to improve your garage security; we have the experience and credibility to carry out this work.
