  • The Differences Between an Emergency Locksmith and a Regular Locksmith

    The one major difference between an emergency locksmith and a regular locksmith is operating times. An emergency locksmith would normally provide 24 hour services while a regular locksmith will only be available during their regular opening hours (usually between 9.00am-5.00pm). That means that choosing the wrong type of locksmith would also reflect on availability and the amount of time that you are going to be locked out of your property.

    That’s the thing with emergencies; they don’t always happen at convenient times. In fact, often it feels like they always happen at the least convenient times! Since we never know when to expect a lockout and that an immediate response is usually required it’s good to always use the service of an emergency locksmith. Most emergency locksmiths offer the following services at any given hour:

    • Lock opening Service

    • Lock repairs

    • Lock replacements

    • Safes opening service

    • Burglary Repairs

    Qualified emergency locksmiths are bonded and insured technicians who work on a mobile basis. You may find that an emergency locksmith covers a slightly smaller area than a regular commercial or residential locksmith; this is normal and something that should encourage every customer, not deter them.

    The reason I say this is that to be called out in an emergency situation or an inconvenient time means that the locksmith has to reach his destination as quickly as possible; emergency locksmiths need to cover a smaller, discrete area in order to achieve this. The other added advantage is that customers can be sure that their locksmith knows the area well.

    When engaging the services of an emergency locksmith at unsocial times, fees may vary. Typically, rate will be in the region of £69 -£85, for opening the a locked door. Price can however vary depending on the type of lock. If you need or require a lock change you should also consider the cost of a new lock. We reccomend that you take a look at our price list to get an idea of what a 24 hour locksmith service is likely to cost.

    It can be a challenge to find the right emergency locksmith, but when a service that can be relied on is found it can provide anyone with piece of mind; it’s always worth adding the number of a reliable emergency locksmith to you phone book or contacts list.
