Importance of Using a Local Emergency Locksmith
If you are experiencing a locksmith related emergency at your home or commercial premises, it’s highly important that you work with a local emergency locksmith. This is because of the fact that there are no middlemen involved. This is often the case when dealing with national locksmiths as these companies try to quote cheaper labour costs but inflate part prices. Due to the fact that you are also facing an emergency, this may be another avenue in which some may try to overcharge for a service provided. As the subcontracting locksmith only takes a small percentage, they may also recommend replacement locks rather than trying to repair a damaged lock for example. This allows them to charge more for services that are provided.
Using trusted, local locksmiths is also highly important for similar reasons. Untrusted locksmiths may overcharge for services provided as well as recommend more expensive solutions such as suggesting to replace a lock when this is not required. They may also seek to take advantage of the fact that you are facing an emergency so be careful for these companies also.
We are proud to be a genuine, local 24-hour locksmith, offering a wide range of emergency locksmith services to our clients. We are committed to ensuring that any issue that you are experiencing can be resolved in a timely fashion and carried out by one of our expert locksmiths. As we have many years of experience as emergency locksmiths, we have likely installed or resolved an issue similar to yours which allows us to give you the peace of mind that your locksmith emergency will be rectified correctly.

Taking Action in Securing Your Property
Although not necessarily an emergency, there are still steps that you can take to ensure that your property is completely secure. Although you may not have considered replacing the locks in your home, it’s important to think about who may have had access to the property at any given time. If you have recently purchased a property then there could have been a whole host of individuals that may have had access to a key at some point. Whether a gardener, tradesman or previous partner was given a key, this means that an individual may still hold a key for your property. Changing the locks on a new property is therefore an important step of purchasing a new home as it’s impossible to ascertain as to who may have held a key to the property at some time. Although not technically an emergency, this still may warrant the need for you to take action and to have a new locking system installed. We can visit your new home, advise you on the lock replacement options that are available and provide you with a free, no obligation quotation.
Proactive vs. Reactive Approach?
Although you will need to find the services of a trusted local locksmith in an emergency, this doesn’t necessarily mean that a reactive approach is required when facing an emergency. For example, in this instance – you may have been able to have access to a hidden set of emergency keys. If a UPVC door lock has become damaged for a long time for example or needs repairing then you can contact a member of our expert team to prevent the lock from breaking further or snapping shut and locking you out unexpectedly. Accidents can happen however, with this being why we offer an emergency 24/7 365 days a year service to ensure that if an accident does occur, we can help you gain access back to your property.
In terms of the security of your property, you can also take steps to increasing the security of your property before an emergency occurs. Securing your property not only makes it more difficult for intruders to enter, they may also even be put-off attempting to target your property if it has evidently high security. This doesn’t necessarily have to mean extensive CCTV systems and ID identification systems but highly secure locking systems can be highly effective against intruders.
Commercial Emergency Locksmith Services
Although domestic issues may come to mind when looking for an emergency locksmith, the commercial sector can also benefit from expert emergency locksmith services. Lack of access to your commercial or business premises can be damaging for both reputation and staff morale / safety. If your employees or yourself are locked out of your premises then you may experience a delay in operations which can cause a lack of revenue. It’s therefore highly important that you have access to a trusted emergency locksmith who you can rely on in any business related emergency.
It’s understandable that you will be highly concerned and distressed when suffering from a break-in at your commercial premises. Our emergency locksmith services in Edinburgh will ensure that your premises are secure after a break-in and we can secure the premises and advise you on future security to help combat against potential thieves.
