How Do I Find a Reliable Locksmith in Edinburgh?

There are several ways of sourcing a reliable locksmith in Edinburgh. We appreciate in an emergency many people will just phone the first company they see on google or their preferred search engine. However, no matter how desperate you are, our advice would be to do some research before making the call. There are a few things you can do to ensure you get the locksmith best equipped to resolve your problem quickly and at the best price, these are:

  • Word of Mouth – If possible, speak to friends or relatives to find out which local locksmith in Edinburgh they used and whether they would recommend them to a friend. 
  • Internet Reviews – If you can’t get personal recommendations, check reviews online to ensure the company you are choosing has a good reputation. 
  • Ask About Hidden Prices – Some locksmiths may have hidden charges in their prices. When choosing a locksmith, it is a good idea to check if they have any additional fees, for example, call out charges (which we do not at Forth Locks). This way, you can get an accurate estimate. 

If you follow these simple guidelines you will be able to ensure you get the quality of service at the price you want.

How Much Does a Locksmith in Edinburgh Cost?

There is no standardised pricing for locksmith services. As with most things, the cost will usually depend on the time taken, complexity of the job and the quality of the parts used. It is important when you employ the services of a locksmith, you get them to give you an accurate estimate for the cost of any work before they start and also whether they charge a call out fee. 

Here at Forth Locks there is no call out charge for our services irrespective of the time of day or night. Once we have inspected the job you will be provided with an accurate quote for the work and that price will not change.

At Forth Locks, we always aim to use NDE ( Non destructive entry) techniques to get you back into your home without causing any damage to your doors.

What Security Measures Can Forth Locksmiths Recommend?

Forth Locks pride ourselves in being experts when it comes to home security. Prior to making any recommendations, our team will fully survey your home to get an understanding of the level of security currently in place. Once this has been completed we will be in a position to advise you on the best way to secure your home or business. While there are some obvious methods of home security such as security alarms and CCTV, there are others you may not automatically think of. Some of the other measures that we recommend for homes and businesses include: 

  • Fitting High Quality Locks – Good quality locks not only protect your home against intruders but are also more resistant to damage so will last much longer. 
  • Install High Quality Doors and Windows – Choose quality doors and windows with reinforced frames as they will give your home a higher level of protection. 
  • Keep Your Keys Safe – Never leave your keys near the door or on window ledges in clear sight. Experienced burglars have been known to get keys through letterboxes while key cloning is becoming more commonplace. 
  • Consider Replacing Locks When Keys Get Lost – If you lose your keys you can never be sure if they have fallen into the hands of an unscrupulous individual. The only way you can be certain you have all the keys to your property is by installing new locks. 
  • Ensure your Property is well lit – Good lighting at the front and rear of your home or business will deter intruders. Remember, burglars like to operate under the cover of darkness and as such a well lit area is likely to send them in search of easier pickings.
