Wherever you live and whatever kind of property you live in, security should always be one of your biggest concerns. That being said, even attempting to repair a lock without the proper training, tools or experience can be disastrous. Not only could you end up causing expensive damage, but you could also invalidate your home insurance policy (which will almost certainly specify that security must be handled by a trained professional). To guarantee your property’s safety, your best choice will always be to hire a fully-qualified professional.

Hire the right locksmith
Attempting DIY with door, window or smart locks is a recipe for disaster. Without the correct training, you will end up leaving your home vulnerable to break-ins. Worse yet, if you attempt to activate an insurance policy following a worst-case scenario, you could find yourself without coverage if you did not have your locksmithing work handled by a professional. To guarantee a quick, efficient and high-quality service, your best option will always be to hire a qualified locksmith.
In order to learn their trade, locksmiths will usually earn qualifications via courses which have been accredited by the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA). At Home Solutions, we make sure that each of our partners has the correct qualifications and experience to be able to offer high-quality work every single time.
As useful as it can be to search for ‘average’ costs before hiring a tradesperson, it is important to take any figures you find with a grain of salt. The first reason for this is that local costs in Maidstone can be quite different from those elsewhere, especially in cities like London. The second is simply that the little details of a locksmithing job are what really decide the final costs, and ‘averages’ often overlook this. For example, a locksmith may need to charge for parking, or to source replacement parts. They may also charge extra to work during evenings, weekends or national holidays. You can rely on Home Solutions to not only offer you an excellent price but also to make all costs clear in advance.
When you use Home Solutions, you will have two options for payment. Simpler services often come with fixed costs, which you will be able to view on the John Lewis website. Your second option will be to contact a locksmith directly via Home Solutions in order to discuss the details of your job. Once they know what your project will require in terms of time, tools and so on, they will then be able to offer you a bespoke quote.
Be sure to mention the specific make of the locks they will be working with, especially for smart models. This will give your candidate plenty of time to make sure they are fully prepared for the work. Depending on the details of your project, your locksmith may also ask to visit your property in advance for an inspection.
