For a great service at excellent prices use Entrytec Locksmiths Ltd ********************************* Helpful advice from Carl at Entrytec Locksmiths Here are a few simple steps you should consider when choosing a locksmith Use a trusted company like Entrytec , Only use a trusted company that has been operating for at least a few years and has a good reputation. Check for them at Companies House Verify the company is still trading. Read feedback Check their feedback, it should be verifiable. Scam locksmith websites display fake feedback that they write themselves. ID check Ask your locksmith for their ID. Genuine professionals will always have ID on them and will be happy to provide it upon request. Know Your Payment Options Proper locksmith companies will have multiple payment options. Beware of a locksmith who asks for cash payment, and make sure you receive a proper invoice. No-obligation security check Ask your locksmith for a free no-obligation security check. This should be provided in a friendly and non-pushy manner. You should receive important and useful information during or after the security check. Clear prices It’s not always possible to give the final cost over the phone as there could be multiple explanations as to what caused the issue. However, you should always be given an idea of the cost before any work commences.

Reuben was very good he phoned to arrange a suitable time and gave me a fair estimate of the cost involved saying he could probably repair it rather than replace it. He turned up promptly, took the lock apart and repaired it within a short time. He obviously knew his stuff and the price was as he quoted and very reasonable. I would definitely use him again if I ever need a locksmith .

Locksmiths - what you need to know

What a locksmith can help with

  • Fitting a new lock.
  • Opening a locked door.
  • Replacing a door with a lock.
  • Emergency locksmith services if you’re locked out of your house or need the locks replacing quickly (normally 24/hr).
  • Burglary repairs where there’s damage from forced entry.
  • Key cutting.
  • Auto locksmithing (helping you get back into a locked car).

What should I do if my key’s hard to turn in the lock?

Over time, dust and dirt can build up on the internal mechanisms that control the movement of a lock. You can try applying dry graphite to lubricate it or if you think it might be more than just dirt affecting it, a locksmith can assess the mechanism and tell you if you need a new lock.

Wooden doors can also expand and contract which stops the lock from fitting into the door frame. This can happen if the lock was installed during hot weather or in the middle of winter. Once the temperature changes, the door can shift slightly. In most cases, the lock will still work if you wriggle the key around and get it engaged, but you can ask a locksmith to adjust the lock for you to stop this from happening.

Should I have all of my locks changed if my keys are lost or stolen?

You won’t always need to replace your set of locks if your keys are stolen. If you choose to replace your entire lock, the lock itself and the knob will be replaced but it can be cheaper to have your locks re-keyed. In a re-keying job, the tumbler’s replaced so that you keep your old lock but only a new key would be able to open it. Your old keys would stop working in the lock.

Insurance for locksmith work

There is no legal obligation for locksmiths to be insured but locksmiths may choose to purchase public liability insurance so they’re covered in the case of injury or accidental damage to a property.

Questions you should ask a locksmith

  • How long have they been trading?
  • Do they have public liability insurance and what does this cover?
  • Will they be carrying out the job themselves or sub-contracting it? If the job’s being carried out by someone else, what experience do they have and are they covered by insurance?
  • How long is the warranty period for the work?
  • Do they have a call-out charge (particularly for emergency repairs) and how much is this?
