I am moving house. Why should I consider changing the locks?
When you move into a new house you are unaware if the previous owner or builder has given you all the copies of the keys that have been made to your house. A locksmith can rekey your premises and you can be sure you are the only one holding keys to your property.
What is rekeying?
Rekeying is a process where the locksmith is able to change the pins inside your locks so that a new key operates it. In appropriate situations this is a cost effective option as you don’t need to replace the whole lock.
Can I get all my locks to work with one key?
Yes in most cases a locksmith can rekey the locks around your property so that all locks can be operated by one key.
What happens if I am broken into?
The first thing you need to do is ring the Police. Once they are finished a Locksmith can secure your doors and rekey your property if needed.
What are restricted keys?
Restricted keys are usually protected by a patent. The patent stops locksmiths and others who cuts keys from making copies of that key. Owners of restricted keys usually need to provide ID before additional keys can be cut.
