Frequently Asked Questions


Q = Can you come out in the middle of the night?
A = Yes, I am a 24 hour emergency locksmith. You can call me at any time.

Q = Do you charge over £100 just to get me in like some locksmiths?
A = No not at all, My charges are between £49.99 and £89.99 to come and gain entry all depending on the time of day and what lock you have. Even if you get me out of bed in the middle of the night and I have to drive 20 miles its still only between £69.99 and £89.99.

Q = What are your call out fees?
A = I don't have call out fees, If I can gain entry by opening the lock then you pay the opening lock cost. If I can't get the lock open but can still get you in by using destructive methods then that is also chargable at the same rates as lock opening. I am very confident that I can get you in so on the very rare occasion that I cant, you don't have to pay a penny.

Q = Do your prices include labour?
A = Yes indeed, the price I quote is the price you pay. No VAT, no hidden extras. It is all agreed before I start the work.

Q = Are your prices set prices or an estimate?
A = Before I start work I will give you either an exact price or a best and worst case senario price for jobs that may involve an unknown amount of work and as the job goes along you will clearly be able to see if it is heading into the worst case zone.

Q = I have lost my keys but the door is open, so can I just pay for the replacement lock?
A = On some doors yes, However some locks for example Euro Cylinders need to be in the unlocked position to be removed from the door. In this situation you would need to pay for the lock opening as well as a replacement lock. Some locks for example mortice locks can be changed when they are in the locked position and then you can just pay for the lock replacement.

Q = Can you give me a quote without charging me a call out fee?
A = Of course, It costs nothing for me to come and have a look and give you a price. If you are happy I normally carry the stock to do the job there and then but if not I can get it within a couple of days. (Usually next day)

Q = How can I pay?
A = I accept cash and also credit and debit card payments with my mobile card payment machine. I do not accept payments by cheque. For business customers I can invoice with a 14 day payment period subject to the business being registered with myself and prior agreement.

Q = Why are your Euro Cylinder prices £59.99 when you can buy one in town for £10?
A = Firstly I do not supply standard easy to snap cylinder locks as I do not consider them to be secure and do not think anyone should be using a non anti-snap lock. Also you can't buy the locks I supply for £10 in a hardware store and my Euro Cylinder locks are professionally fitted to the correct size, mechanically guaranteed for 2 years and also come with 5 keys.

Q = I have been burgled can you help me secure the property?
A = I have a range of locks and security items in stock. If you need your handles replacing, locks replacing, a secure chain to chain it up for the night or even a temporary lock until I can get one to fit then I have chains, locks and temprorary locks that can be used to secure the doors etc. Remember it costs nothing for me to have a look and see what I can do for you.

Q = Can I fit a lock myself?
A = You may be able to fit a lock yourself but are you sure that you know the right lock to buy. Will you get the right size lock for a flush fit? and could you imagine if something went wrong having to tell the insurance company that you fitted a lock yourself?

Q = Can you travel further than places you list as covering?
A = I can but there may be an extra charge to travel further afield but give me a call and we can see what we can do for you.

Q = How can I leave you a review?
A = I would love it if you could leave me a nice review. It really helps grow my business. Please click the Yell.com link below and you can easilly type a quick review.
