Meeting Insurance Standards

Due to the rise in lock snapping burglaries in the West Midlands some insurance companies are now requesting that all main external doors have locking systems conforming to British Standards or a TS007 3 Star Rating.

Criminal techniques evolve as quickly as door security so older uPVC door locks in particular are now extremely vulnerable to a well documented lock snapping attack that could see a crook in your home in under thirty seconds.

If you would like more information or to request a free home survey by our locksmith in West Midlands then call Rick direct on: 07724828289.

It goes without saying that as a local locksmith in West Midlands, Rick can be on site faster than any national lock franchise 'claiming' to be based in the area.

As a genuine local family owned locksmith business we also offer the most cost effective service in the Wes Midlands and strive to beat any other local locksmiths quotation, whether it be a simple lock change or a complete master key suite for a large organisation in the Midlands.

Remember to take that extra time to shop around! There are a lot of national call centers advertising in the area charging 3-4 times more than a genuine local locksmith in West Midlands. Don't get stung!

Choosing A Local Locksmith in West Midlands

We cannot stress how important is when searching for a local locksmith West Midlands to obtain several quotations from different locksmith companies. People seldom realise the huge difference it can make spending that extra time searching for a real local locksmith as opposed to a locksmith franchise that sub contracts its work to any nearby locksmith.

When calling a national locksmith franchise you are going to be paying over the odds for these middlemen to find you a 'locksmith' that is nearby, waiting times can be lengthy as they usually send locksmiths from upto 50 miles away and rarely arrive on time. You will also find that getting any follow up work or repairing any faults will be nigh on impossible once they have taken your payment. There is a good summary of the way they work on this website: http://www.locksmith-directory.org.uk/nationals-article.html

So calling West Midlands locksmiths ensures you are getting a real local tradesman that is easy to contact in the event of correctional work, reasonable rates for good quality work and a locksmith that is professionally trained and more than qualified to complete your lock jobs!

When locked out of your property or home you do not always want the lock to be changed afterwards so we will always attempt to open the locks non destructively where possible using lock picking methods and with our specialist bypass tools.

Rick the locksmith went above and beyond this weekend to get us back into our house. We had just upgraded all our front door locks to BS so it was no easy feat but Rick handled it like a professional!
