How to Find a emergency locksmith services professional

Find a tradesman for 24 hour emergency locksmith services

If you need a locksmith in an emergency, you may be tempted to simply hire the first one you find. Plentific offers a speedy service that lists the best tradesmen in your local area offering emergency locksmith solutions while also giving you quick access to their customer reviews. Even in an emergency, Plentific’s service can help you ensure you get the best tradesman for the job at a competitive quote.

What do you need to know about 24 hour emergency locksmith services?

There are several things that can go wrong with a lock, such as broken cylinders or trapped keys. Certain firms offering 24/7 services will have call out charges for jobs taking place out of working hours or on the weekends, though others will only charge for the job itself. Some makes of lock will also cost more to work on, simply because of the level of security involved.

Checking customer reviews on Plentific is a good idea as certain tradesmen may try to take advantage of an emergency situation by offering unnecessary fixes. Methods like removing the lock completely may not be necessary if it can be picked, and so on. Reviews are a great way to gauge how professional your tradesman will be.

The average charge of hiring an emergency locksmith will vary depending on your location in the UK, the nature of the job and when when your tradesman will be working. Replacing a cylinder could cost anything between £90 and £160, while simply removing a broken key from a lock may cost around £90. A tradesman unlocking your door when you have lost your keys may charge between £80 and £120. Aftercare, such as installing a new cylinder, will mean additional costs. How much you have to pay in additional fees will depend on the policies of the tradesman you hire. Speaking of which, you should ensure that they have policies in place to cover accidental damage.

We purchased a house yesterday in Bolton near the Train Station, the house has a Main Entrance Door and a Kitchen Door, both the doors are similar. For security reasons, I would like to replace the locks on the doors, I believe the doors are UPVC.

I have employed Dave for a number of years; he has installed my boiler in my flat in 2008 which I now rent out and he has provided the annual boiler checks every year with an excellent service. I have recently had my own home boiler as well as the rental boiler checked this year and had some recommended upgrades done on the filtration and DHWS exchanger. Further to that, I have had locks replaced with much better quality ones and a replacement glass unit, all done on agreed days within a couple of weeks. I am very happy with the service offered and would thoroughly recommend Dave at House Doctors.
