Locked out? Don’t want it to happen again?
Okay you were unlucky enough to get locked out and lost a small fortune in paying a Locksmith? As London Locksmiths we deal with many lockouts and whilst it is not our main business stream we offer a service getting our customers into their premises, whenever possible without destruction. We do recommend to our customers certain things that will stop this happening again in the future.
1. Giving a spare key to one of their neighbours. Obviously a trustworthy neighbour that they know and trust, or at least a friend who lives within a 10 minute walk.
2. Use a lock that keys can be cut to code. Taking your driving licence/Passport into a local London Locksmith to get a key cut can be a lot cheaper than calling someone onsite to let you in!
3. Keep a secret key safe with spare keys in it. A small box discreetly hidden at the side of the house could have a spare key to your nightlatch with your mortice key being kept elsewhere.
Calling out a London Locksmith can be expensive, especially late at night. Using these simple but affective measures can save you a lot of hassle and keep your money in your pocket during these tough economic times!
