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).

The front door lock needs a bit of faffing with when trying to lock or unlock the door. It is essentially stuck but from the outside only. On the inside it locks and unlocks without any problems. There is a certain knack to locking and unlocking the door from the outside but I can't be stressing about this on a daily basis so need it looked at please.

I would like Banham L2000 And M2003 (Keyed Alike) installed to an existing front door, replacing existing locks. It is a 40mm wooden door. I would also consider replacing the glass in the door with a more secure option (currently just single glazed). Sorry that attached photo is not better!

The team repainted my two bedroom flat throughout and replaced the carpets in both bedrooms and a small computer room. I was really pleased with the work they did. Everything went smoothly from the start and I didn't have to do anything after delivering the keys to the decorators and letting them get on with it! Thank you!
