Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How much will a Locksmith cost?  Price depends on the job in hand but a list of labour rates and parts can be found on my prices page, However most standard jobs can be quoted over the phone and would be confirmed again once i arrive with no obligation or pressure to proceed. As an independent locksmith I'm under no pressure to earn extra commission by carrying out unnecessary work or replacing good locks and will no way pressure customers, this way of trading is something you may see from larger organizations or rogue traders.
  2. Will i have to pay a call out charge?  I never charge any upfront charge even for an emergency, if you are locked out a quote will be provided to gain entry and once i arrive the whole procedure would be fully explained and fee confirmed before i go any further.
  3. How do i pay? I accept cash or all major cards through my encrypted chip and pin terminal, you will not be charged any extra for card payments. If you are a landlord or not present to make payment in person card payment can be taken over the phone.
  4. Will i get a receipt/invoice? You will receive a written invoice upon job completion with full details of work carried out and parts used.
  5. Do you charge VAT? As a small business serving mainly domestic customers I've opted not to be VAT registered which saves you the extra 20% which larger company's need to charge on top.
  6. Will i get a guarantee? All new parts used come with a standard 12 months guarantee. 
  7. Will i need a new lock if I've locked myself out of my house? When trying to gain entry to any property i will always use non destructive methods first, non destructive means entry without damage to door or lock, if you have just walked out of your property and left the key inside? by using specialist tools with years of practice I'm able to open 99% of doors without damage and providing you have the key the lock will be fully operational, cylinder locks can be picked, bypassed and manipulated without damage in most cases, higher security deadlocks require different methods to open which would be fully explained after lock identification. However if you have lost one of your keys its always advisable to change the lock and have a new set of keys for obvious security reasons.
  8. Will you have the parts required on the van? As a former warrant locksmith I've built up a comprehensive stock of locks, cylinders and mechanisms to cover all eventualities, in the rare case of a lock not in van stock i have many temporary repair locks to secure your door while parts are ordered, most parts are next day delivery. 
  9. Will i get charged for a second visit if parts need ordering? No extra will charged, only my agreed fee on the first visit to fully complete the job is payable, you would normally pay nothing until the job is completed but may be asked for a deposit when ordering parts. 
  10. How long will i have to wait for a locksmith? For an emergency lock out call i aim to attend within 1 hour and will always make the elderly and customers with young children my priority, an average response of 30 minutes is usually achieved subject to time of day, traffic and road conditions, i have responded to jobs in only a few minutes before if local to where I'm working. I will never make false promises and would rather recommend another locksmith if i was unable to attend within 1 hour.

I was on holiday in Norway with a neighbor popping in to look after my dogs when I received a call to say that she had called a locksmith as the door wouldn't open. I immediately began to worry about a huge bill but after speaking with him and hearing the work planned I was put at ease. The broken lock was drilled out and replaced, and with the call out fee I was chuffed to get a bill 4 or 5 times less than I was expecting. I arrived home to find it safe, secure and with no evidence that he'd been other than two new keys. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
