Importance Of Talking Directly to a Locksmith

Importance of talking direct to a Locksmith

In your hour of crisis whether being locked out, your keys snapped in the lock, lost your keys or the lock has failed, it is vitally important you discuss your situation with a reputable Locksmith.

Here at Lockforce Southampton I ask very important questions whilst on the initial call to help ascertain what the issue is therefore giving you, the customer, satisfaction and peace of mind. This also helps me to evaluate and provide a fixed price.

I normally ask the client to send through a photo of the lock to me on 07542 513 739, therefore, I know prior to coming out that it will not cost any more than quoted.

Point in question, I recently had a call from a lady explaining her lock had jammed and wouldn’t work with the key. After asking some initial questions, I quoted a minimum and maximum price so she was comfortable with her options.

Upon arrival I found a 20 year Legge 5 lever mortis lock had given up and replaced it with an Era Fortress 5 lever mortis lock which conforms to insurance standards BS 3621.

1 hour later after some minor adjustments to the woodwork, all’s good… So when looking through my website http://www.lockforce.co.uk/locksmith/Southampton/ or Checking out Checkatrade http://www.checkatrade.com/LockforceSouthampton/ you’ll notice our company Slogan…. Smart, Safe, Secure this represents everything covered above and…. I get a cracking review from another very satisfied customer…see below

Night Latches (Yale Locks)

From the traditional style right through to British Standard, night latches offer a cost-effective way of securing your home.

These locks are surface mounted and come in various shapes and sizes which include auto dead locking, a

Lockable handle and BS extended bolt versions.

The lower end of the market is usually installed along with a mortise lock however the latest British Standard night latch includes all the benefits of added security which often include a cylinder pull with rotating disc to prevent picking and drilling. The bolt is 20mm wide and often reinforced to give additional strength and security to meet the BS3621/2007 specifications.

The main sizes are 2.5" and 3" the locks are then 3 and 5 lever locks generally these locks are identified by either the locks face plate or the key. The locks that Lockforce Locksmith in Southampton fit to external front doors are always British standard as these are required by insurance company's these locks are 5 lever locks and have a larger bolt and anti-drill plates. They come with 2 keys as standard and due to our mobile key cutting service extra keys can be cut on site.

For bed room and internal doors 3 lever mortise locks with suffice generally. Bathroom locks are a 2-lever lock with the ability to lock and unlock inside the bathroom using a thumb turn and externally using a screw driver or a blunt thin object. Lockforce Locksmith in Southampton also fit both bathroom and internal door locks.

All these locks come with the option of a sash lock or a dead lock. A sash lock is where a sash is fitted and a Handle must be depressed to open the door and retract the sash and a Dead lock doesn't have these features so unlocking the doors lock will allow the door to be pushed open.

CHECKATRADE CUSTOMERS

A customer called me noting I was a member of Checkatrade and asked a few questions regarding changing an intermittent faulty front door lock. I then gave the client fixed prices on three alternative lock options, wisely he opted for the 3 star Ultion lock which is rated as British Standards.

Review:

“Richard arrived on time and was extremely courteous, he completed the work to a high standard and cleaned up all the mess I cannot recommend his services highly enough and would definitely use him again when needed.”

Stressed daughter helping her disabled mum…

I had a random phone call 27th October 2017 from a distressed lady asking if I had fitted a euro cylinder lock to her disabled mothers house that previous morning, I promptly replied no I’m sorry that wasn’t me she then proceed to end the conversation and hang up until I asked can I help and what’s the problem…

It transpires that she had spent hours trying to contact the Locksmith, (I use the word loosely) who attend her disabled mother’s house to replace her thumb turn cylinder lock on her upvc door, problem was he only he replaced it with a totally different lock without a thumb turn, the issue was her mother couldn’t operate the key in the lock internally to secure the door.

I sympathised with her and mentioned if she had no success then I will attend site and replace the lock at cost… 15 minutes later she called me to ask if I can help, so I arrived only to find that not only was the lock the wrong type, it was oversize and installed totally incorrectly, and it could potentially cause damage to the whole locking system.

I measured the correct dimensions for her upvc door and installed a high quality anti-snap euro cylinder thumb turn lock.

I then mentioned that she should always check to see if the Locksmiths are legitimate thus having DBS police clearance, Checkatrade vetted, have the proper indemnity insurances and always provide proof via the appropriate ID that way you can insure that issues that had just happened to her don’t happen in future.

The client and her mother were so grateful and left me with a great review…

“I called Richard at Lockforce by chance and I'm so glad I did he is a professional of the best kind, very quick and efficient job and lots of helpful advice. He did a great job of replacing my front door lock in an emergency. Many thanks for getting my out of a tight bind today”

It’s not selling…..It’s education and awareness

A recent phone call from a potential customer went something like this,

Customer: “Hi I’ve just purchased a new home in ************ and would like a quotation to change all the Upvc door locks, can you help”.

Richard Lockforce Southampton: ‘Certainly’ was the reply, “can you just have a quick look at the front of the keyway on your locks where your insert the key, I need to ascertain what kind of lock you have, what are the markings?”.

Customer: “There isn’t any markings at all…it’s just blank”.

Richard Lockforce Southampton: “Ok, it seems as though you have a standard ‘euro cylinder lock’, I would strongly suggest you upgrade whilst changing these to something suitable like a Brisant TS007 cylinder lock, these are one of the securest locks available, for example the Brisant TS007 is without doubt the most fortified euro-cylinder available on the domestic market, which includes a 3 star security rating”

Customer: “That sounds really expensive, what’s the price”…..

Richard Lockforce Southampton: “Good question, I get asked that a lot, may ask what car you drive?”

Customer: …….”Sorry?”

Richard Lockforce Southampton: “It’s just that you’ve just purchased your dream home in a very affluent part of Southampton, I bet you drive a lovely car”

Customer: “well yes actually, I have a new BMW 5 series, it’s my pride and joy!”

Richard Lockforce Southampton: “Well sir unfortunately that’s the price…the BMW, your pride and joy…, you see the locks you have at present can be snapped and entry can be gained from a would-be burglar in a matter of seconds to grab your car keys. With the Brisant locks I recommend, entry would be a thing of the past as they are anti snap, so much so that Brisant themselves offer £1000 guarantee if an intruder breaks into your home by snapping these locks, and the bonus is that they are not that much more expensive than the standard locks”

After an initial ‘no obligation, free survey’ of the property and a quick demonstration of the Brisant Ultion locks the client proceeded to have his front, side and rear patio door locks replaced…. So, think carefully when enquiring about replacing locks, it’s not just a new set of keys your after for you new property, it’s piece of mind knowing your home is secure. Call me Richard Lockforce Southampton on 07542 513 739 to book your no obligation survey.
