How do I decide on the best Locksmith for the job?

There are a number of questions that may be a good idea to ask your trusted professional.

  • Identification – Before having someone come into your house, it is a good idea to ask them to show you their basic ID.
  • Emergency services – Find out if they offer a 24-hour locksmith service. Emergency services can be a little bit more expensive than standard ones.
  • Check prices - A professional locksmith companies will normally present a fixed price, along with a variable price. This means that certain aspects, such as the amount of labour generated by the lock service, is variable. This may depend on the lock’s specification, duration of task and lock’s characteristics.
  • Locked out - If you are locked out of the house make sure the locksmith you choose offers lockout services. You might want to enquire if the local locksmith installs high-security locks. Any residential locksmith should be able to install high-security locks. Most burglars gain access to the house due to a malfunctioning lock. Your windows also need to have high-security locks because burglars take advantage of an unsecured window.

    You can be confident that any of the Bark local locksmiths listed will provide you with a professional service and take care of your locks.

How long does it take for a Locksmith to open my locked door?

This depends on a range of factors. If the mechanism has failed it can take a much longer time compared to if you lost your keys and the lock was working efficiently. On average it takes a professional locksmith between 10-30 minutes to open most locked doors.

What should I look for in a Locksmith?

Before you choose a locksmith, you could take a look for membership from the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA) or the Institute of Certified Locksmiths.

Before choosing a professional, you may also want to ask for examples of past work which they have performed in the past. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, and Bark can show you locksmith reviews from past customers too as well as examples of work that they have completed.

Last Tuesday night, I found myself locked out of my flat. Flavius arrived very quickly. He was very good with the lock, granting me access to my house in less than 10 minutes. His professionalism and quick work were beyond impressive. would highly recommend

We have just had our bath removed and a shower fitted by David. He has done an excellent job. He is a very hard worker and gets stuck in. We are very happy and would highly recommend him. Thank you David
