Mortice Lock Worn Away - Bredbury, Stockport, SK6 - 15th July 2019
Lockforce Locksmiths Stockport recently attended a lovely retired couple in a quaint 5 bedroom house in Bredbury, Stockport. The pair of retired teachers were having problems with their locks.

During my time with them, they shared some moving stories about their travels across the globe.

Stockport City Centre Break In - Stockport, SK1 - 10th July 2019
Lockforce Locksmiths Stockport were referred to a customer by a friend who couldn't rate our service highly enough. We were attending a job on the other side of the city, and usually in rush hour it'd take 90 minutes to get to this customer, but we explained and she said she was happy to wait the 90 minutes of the strength of our reviews and her friends recommendation.
Sadly, this customers home had been broken into whilst they were working a night shift. The burglar had snapped the lock on the rear patio door. After discussing a range of solutions with the customer, we agreed the best way to move forward is to install a new Brisant Lock Lock onto the door, which makes it near impossible to snap using conventional grips used by burglars thanks to its rounded design. The customer was very happy with the outcome given the unfortunate circumstances.

When a customer is totally satisfied with the service you have provided they sometimes give you a tip, however on Monday I installed a mortice lock in a customer's property and as a tip he allowed me to sit in and start up the engine of his Lamborghini. Now that is a tip, it's times like this that I love my job!!
