The Plentific website can utilise information from over 75,000 professionals across the UK to generate a bespoke list of the best tradesmen in your local area that offer the services you need.

What do you need to know about door lock fitting or replacement?
Locksmiths can be called to jobs at any time, but keep in mind that callouts outside of standard working hours or at the weekend will almost certainly cost you more. Having a lock installed can cost between £100 and £200, though this can vary considerably depending on where you live in the UK and whether you hire a large company. The same goes for replacing a lock, though other aspects will shape the cost in this case. Does the entire lock need to be replaced, or just a certain part? Will the entire lock need to be removed if you are replacing it with a different brand? Even for quick callouts, your tradesman should be able to advise you on the best course of action and give you an accurate quote. If you have the time to do so it is a good idea to collect multiple quotes to compare. By the same token it is advised to look over a tradesman’s qualifications and experience before hiring them. At the very least look over their customer reviews to make sure they are known for satisfying work and professionalism. There are certain signs that you can look out for even if time is scarce, such as whether or not your tradesman is part of a national organisation such as the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA).
