For big companies, it is more and more common to use services of call centers. Find out what type of locksmith services you should choose to have your lock fixed properly and not to overpay.

Call centers: what can go wrong?

Being suddenly locked out of your property might lead to panic. A lot of people simply type “locksmith” on their phone and pick the first company. In the UK, the net tends to be flooded with phone numbers which all link back to a single call center. Not a local one. The phone is answered by a receptionist rather than by an actual locksmith. The charge for the services often turns out to be different than the quote you initially receive.

Local locksmith

In order to avoid overpaying, it’s worth finding a local locksmith with a registered local address who would personally answer the phone and turn up as soon as possible to get your problem fixed. You can easily find such a professional locksmithing service on Facebook or Google reviews. Of course you can simply type in “locksmith near me” in your search engine (or ask your Alexa, or Siri). It’s however always better to be specific. Search, for example, for “front door lock replacement Beckenham” or “emergency door opening Bromley”. This way you are going to find exactly the service you need within your local area.

Individual approach matters

Properly trained local locksmith is going to assess your problem and always seek to open your door in the possibly least invasive way. By having your door fixed by such a person you can be sure that your lock meets the BS 3621 standard and has anti-burglary properties. Bacause your problem is going to be individually assessed by an actual specialist, the charges are most likely going to meet the quote and you will not overpay.
