Have you took the first step when moving house?

Remember a locksmiths role isn't just about to reactive services but also proactive services... Here is just another idea of a marketting tool to help kick start your locksmith career. To put this idea to practise maybe knock up leaflets and post them through every house that has just been sold or get into talks with local estate agents to arrange a deal.

You may not be aware that it's a great idea to change existing door locks if you have recently moved into a new home or business.  It is often a major step that is often over-looked when moving house. By following a simple procedure such as changing the locks you can guarantee that you are in control of who has access to each and every set of key available to your property.

According to Home Office statistics, you are almost twice as likely to be burgled in the 12 months after moving house compared with the average burglary rate (4.6% compared with 2.5%). You are nearly three times as likely to be burgled compared with those who have occupied their property for 10 years or more (4.6% compared to 1.6%).

A locksmith will be able to help out with the following: 

  • Changing, Fitting and repairing locks.
  • Upgrading locks and property security for insurance criteria.
  • Lost the keys to the lock
  • Gaining entry to the property in a none-destructive manner.
  • Replacing the lock if it is damaged or faulty
  • Boarding and securing.
