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).

Rick arrived on time and repaired the work another tradesman had left attempting to repair the door. Price was reasonable and we were happy with all the work.

Graham and his men have done a few jobs for me and they have always been excellent. They arrive on time and carry out the work quickly and without any fuss. Graham always has a solution to get round any problems he may encounter on site and they always clean up afterwards!

I can Highly recommend Nas, i had some problems with my bathroom, a few leaks because the bathroom was not installed correctly. Nas came took a look and fixed it pretty quick. My bath was leaking in three places, nas fixed it and said he would not charge me for the labour, only the parts, which i thought was so kind of him. Nas had even wiped his shoes on my door mat before entering my place (which not a lot of construction men do on arrival) . Nas also said he would wait a few days before sending payment req through just to make sure no leaks would reappear, and if anything resurfaced he would come back! Again thank you Nas
