Factors to consider when hiring a locksmith

It’s really important that you choose a reliable locksmith service to carry out work on your home. Failing to do this can result in unnecessary stress and expensive repairs.   

Before you hire, you should do your research to ensure that your locksmiths: 

  1. Are an experienced company with a strong history of successful projects  
  2. Have all the necessary licenses and insurance needed to protect you and their workers 
  3. Have a good range of positive reviews from previous customers vouching for their reliability 
  4. Are offering the locksmith services you need, and are available to carry out the work in the timeframe you need it by
  5. Are quoting a price and payment option that you are happy with, having compared the quote with other local lock repair and replacement companies.  

Local tradespeople are more likely to respond quickly – especially during an emergency – as they’ll be right around the corner and ready to help. Post a job today to request a quote.

How much does it cost to hire a locksmith?

How much it will cost you to replace, upgrade or repair your locks depends on a few factors, such as the type of lock you have or want and where you live in the UK.

On average, you can expect to pay anywhere between £80 and £200 to replace a set of locks, though more advanced, premium models can cost upwards of £400.

Should I change my locks if my keys are lost or stolen?

If you can’t find your keys, and you aren’t sure if you lost them or if somebody stole them, you might be wondering what the best thing to do is. First, retrace your steps and look in surrounding areas in case you dropped them on your way home or left them in a coffee shop or at work.

If you still can’t find them, it’s highly recommended that you change your locks as soon as possible. This is regardless of whether you have a spare set of keys or a family member who can let you in.

You should replace lost or stolen keys because:

  • You may think you lost them but they were actually stolen (with the intention of breaking into your home)
  • If your home is burgled without any sign of entry, not changing your locks could invalidate your insurance policy
  • You won’t have peace of mind that your home security is up to scratch and that your home is protected from a potential break in attempt

When it comes to protecting your loved ones and your belongings, you can never be too careful. Speak to an emergency locksmith today to get a mobile locksmith to replace your locks within twenty-four hours.

Questions you should ask before you hire a locksmith

Make sure you ask your locksmith these questions before you hire to ensure you’re making the right decision:

Are you licensed and insured?

Make sure to always ask your locksmith company what insurance they have before you hire them. While it’s not a requirement, it’s a good idea for your lock installation specialist to have public liability insurance to cover you and them against any accidental damage done to your home or personal injuries. This will guarantee protection for both parties and ensure your locksmith is legally compliant.

How much will the job cost?

Asking how much your locksmith job will cost will help you budget for your project and will ensure price transparency before you hire. How much you’ll end up spending depends on the scope of your project, and where you live in the UK, so make sure you add plenty of details when you post a job.

How many years of experience do you have?

Knowing how many years of experience your locksmith has will allow you to pick a tradesperson who you are confident has sufficient expertise to carry out a high quality job. When you’re finding a locksmith through Rated People, head over to their profile to check out the pictures on their work gallery and their ratings and reviews.

During our home renovation project, we enlisted the services of various tradespeople. However, without a doubt, RMR Building stands out as the top performer. Our project involved a complete overhaul of the living area flooring, which included levelling the uneven subfloor, installing a new herringbone laminate flooring, and adding skirting. The quality of their workmanship is impeccable, and their professionalism and cleanliness were noteworthy. I strongly recommend this company. Michele
