How to Find a door lock fitting / replacement professional

Hiring a tradesman to fit or replace a door lock

Fitting or replacing a lock is not a DIY project; nor is it a job for an unqualified cowboy, even if they offer you a cheap quote. Plentific’s service ensures that you will have several qualified professionals to choose from and in a nick of time. 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. You will also be given quick access to customer ratings and reviews to help you compare your choices and make the best hire.

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).

I hired A1HOME4U to refit my old Bathroom and replace the old conservatory at the back with a new rear extension for the new kitchen. I was very pleased that they organised all the required planning permission and building control applications and I didn't have to do any of the paper work. They also replaced all the windows and some doors. I was very impressed with their efficiency and professional attitude. The job was finished within the quoted budget and time scale. That was achieved by organization and hard work. The builders were very tidy and always adhered to the daily cleaning routine after finishing work. I'm very happy with the high quality of work and would recommend A1HOME4U to all my friends and relatives and wish them all the success they deserve.

Henson security installed our alarm on our new build house, they did a really great job and tidied up after themselves. The system is really simple to use and their quote came in below other local companies for the same system. They also changed our locks. Would recommend
