Hire the right locksmith
A little bit of DIY can be fun, but working on locks without the necessary training can be disastrous. You could end up damaging your locks, leaving your home vulnerable to criminals. If you experience a break-in, you may also find that your home insurance no longer applies because you did not hire a professional.
Locksmiths go through a great deal of training to learn their trade. Most will train directly with a company, or take a course accredited by the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA). Remember, each and every Home Solutions locksmith has been vetted to make sure they have the qualifications and experience necessary to complete their work to the level of quality we expect for our customers.
Usually, the cost of hiring a locksmith will depend on the details of the job. A candidate will want to know the type of lock they will be working on, as well as how many. This will help them figure out what the service will require in terms of time, parts, equipment and so on.
For simple jobs such as individual door unlockings, a locksmith may charge a standardised price. Others may charge by the hour and provide a final quote once they are finished. If necessary, a locksmith may also add charges to a bill, such as for parking or additional materials. They may also charge more to work during evenings, weekends or national holidays. With Home Solutions, you will be informed of all costs in plenty of time, so you will not have to worry about any unexpected extras on your final bill.
When you choose Home Solutions, you will have two payment options. The first will be to book a job with a set cost, which you will be able to view on the John Lewis website. For larger projects, such as ones involving multiple installations or unlockings, your best option will be to contact a locksmith through Home Solutions. Once you discuss the details of your project with them, they will then be able to provide you with a bespoke quote. Whatever you are charged, Home Solutions will provide you with a free 12-month guarantee.
