Homemovers….changing your locks
First of all as I write this news article I must say I have moved house several times in the last few years. Each time I have moved I promised myself never again then do it again 18 months later but I can safely say it is one of the most stressful experiences. Saying this we as a company have experienced first hand customers who have moved into a new property and have been a victim of crime because of one simple thing…..they didn't change their locks.
Around 5% of burglaries occur because people have not changed their locks. It is very possible that a further 7 or 8 people have the key to your property-the next door neighbour, cleaner or a tradesman from 6 months back that didn’t bother to return it. Choosing reputable North London Locksmiths is critical in these scenarios, ideally someone who is CRB checked and a member of the Master Locksmith Association.
Changing these locks don’t have to cost the earth-of course if you live in a higher crime area we would recommend a higher security lock however on many occasions either an additional deadlock being fitted on your door or a straight forward lock change maybe all you require-however always remember the investment in the security of your house is also an investment into your personal safety and as qualified CRB checked London Locksmiths we believe we can give you that security.
