Removing an old bolt from a pedestrian gate before fitting a new one.

Ever asked why you should choose a professional locksmith over a handyman when you need to replace a lock in your home or even your vehicle? Chances are at some point or another you have needed locks changed, re-keyed or installed, some people think they can do it themselves or get the local handyman to do it.

Now ask yourself, do you really want to trust someone with the safety of your home or vehicle when they only have a limited general knowledge? Think about it for a moment…..your home is the place you go to for comfort, safety, relaxation and rest…. right?
You need a qualified locksmith with the right knowledge, the expertise to take apart any lock, put it back together and install it correctly. More than that, a competent locksmith won’t accidentally damage your ruin your doors, nor will he damage the lock itself. Look at how some handymen try to fix things with the incorrect tools or simply say “this will do for now”. This is not how it should be done and unlike the handyman, a professional locksmith will take time to advise you of the best type of lock to suit your security needs and the reasons for his recommendations.
Yes, a handyman could cost you less which may make his services more attractive, but an experienced locksmith should have set rates and be in a position to give you an indication of standard prices without hidden costs, schedule an appointment and finish the job in a reasonable time-frame.
