Hire the right locksmith
While it can be fun to do a little DIY from time to time, only a professional can make sure your locks are safe, secure and in working order. Leaving our possessions vulnerable to criminals is the last thing any of us want to do, and if you do experience a break-in, a damaged or improperly installed lock could invalidate your home insurance.
To learn their trade, locksmiths will usually complete a course accredited by the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA), though some will train directly with a company. Every John Lewis-affiliated locksmith has the necessary qualifications and experience to get the job done to the standard we expect for our customers.
The cost of hiring a locksmith, as with many other tradespeople, can vary with location. Whilst national averages can help determine what sort of price you might expect for common jobs, it’s still best to take these with a pinch of salt.
When hiring, it is best to let your locksmith know as soon as possible what sort of locks they are likely to be working with, as well as how many. This way, they can come fully prepared with any necessary parts, equipment and materials acquired beforehand. These extras can add to your overall bill, but having them ready and on hand can mean the work gets done quicker and your home is made safe and secure faster.
For common and small-scale jobs, such as unlocking an individual door, Home Solutions offers standardised prices. For more complicated projects, however, your best bet will be to contact a locksmith via Home Solutions in order to discuss the details of your job. Once they know what it requires, they will then be able to offer you a bespoke quote for the work. As part of this, they may well as to visit your property in advance to inspect what they will be working on.
An important point to keep in mind is that hiring a tradesperson to work during the evenings, over the weekends or through national holidays may incur higher hourly rates than normal working hours.
