When it comes to home security, it’s important to keep in mind that burglars are opportunistic by nature. In other words, they are always looking for properties with vulnerabilities to exploit, as it saves them a great deal of time and hassle.

Hire the right locksmith
When looking at a lock from the outside, it is difficult to tell just how tricky they are to work with. It can be easy for burglars to force their way past locks which are poorly installed or repaired; hence why insurance companies are so insistent that property owners never take security work into their own hands. When you choose Home Solutions, you are guaranteed to have a qualified, experienced and expertly skilled locksmith take care of your security issue.
To learn their trade, locksmiths will either train directly with a company or take a course accredited by the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA). This ensures that their training is up to standard and can leave them fully-equipped for professional locksmithing work. Remember, every locksmith working with Home Solutions has had both their qualifications and past work vetted to make sure they can deliver the level of quality we expect for our customers.
The cost of a locksmithing job will usually depend on the type and quantity of locks involved. The quality is also important, as locksmiths can often find that older or damaged locks need to be replaced rather than repaired.
That said, there can also be additional costs to take into account. If a locksmith has to pay for parking, tools or parts, they will add the costs to their final quote. Some will also charge more to work during evenings, weekends or national holidays.
With all this in mind, it is important not to put too much faith in average costs. National averages can be particularly misleading, as they will not reflect average rates for locksmithing work in Watford. What really matters is finding a candidate who will both offer a market-leading price and confirm all costs with you well in advance. When you use Home Solutions, this is always guaranteed.
Home Solutions prices locksmithing work according to two categories: fixed costs and bespoke quotes. Several smaller, simpler services come with standardised costs which you can see listed on the John Lewis website. ‘Bespoke quotes’ are usually required for larger, more complicated jobs. You can get a bespoke quote by contacting a locksmith via Home Solutions and letting them know what kind of work you require. Depending on what you have in mind, your candidate may ask to visit your property for an inspection.
