6 features of a top Locksmith Service in Wetherby

Locks are an essential and important part of our daily lives, but usually an unconsidered one. They secure our homes, offices, and other property. They are a way to access and secure our valuable possessions and also to keep our loved ones safe. We only notice locks or keys when they begin to fail us or become difficult to use or sporadic in their smooth operation. In addition, the top locksmith service in weather can affect doors and their alignment, causing various difficulties in extremes of temperature.

We also misplace our keys and sometimes they get stolen. Imagine standing outside your house, office, or vehicle and being unable to access them. An emergency locksmith service in Wetherby is all you need. You might have misplaced the key or someone has stolen it. Misplacing the keys is a much bigger threat than you think. Someone else can get into your house or vehicle. You need to rekey or replace the lock if it is too old or if the keys are worn. Here are some of the qualities that define a professional locksmith service:

Insurance Certificates

We are a highly regarded and trusted company, and can check that your locks have the right certification to be valid for your insurance company. A quick search online will reveal a reasonable choice of Locksmith Wetherby, but we believe none have the excellent reputation (backed by customer reviews) that Dr. Locks can boast.

We also repair door mechanisms, so if your door has become stuck (or is starting to be difficult to operate), then call Dr Locks and we will cheerfully solve your problem, regardless of the type of lock or mechanism that you have.

Mel at Dr Locks understands that budget is important to most people, and we have really tightened our belts too so that we can offer you the most competitive prices ever. In fact, our labor rates have not increased at all since 2019! This is despite the rising fuel and other costs.

24/7 Emergency Services

There are many times when you need a Locksmith Wetherby in an emergency. When you are locked out of your property it is never convenient. Even less so if it is raining, late or if you have a child or pet inside the house. Other lockout problems can be caused by the key for a mortice lock not working or a broken uPVC door mechanism that has failed. It is also very important that you call a locksmith if there has been a burglary attempt.

When you call Dr. Locks, we will be honest about how long it will take us to get to you (this is not the case with some other larger companies, who may promise a short time frame and then not deliver on this).

We want every customer to be happy with us; and this is reflected in our customer reviews that you can read for yourself on google.

Work install British standard, High security and up to date locks

Most people in Wetherby would be genuinely shocked to know that many locks are very insecure, often burglar or an intruder can easily break in using a simple knife or a hammer. Whilst Wetherby and surrounding areas are of course safe, you can save yourself the upset of being a victim of crime, simply by having your locks checked. Mel at Dr. Locks is very happy to have a look at your lock if you can send a picture by whatsapp or email, and a free, quick conversation may well put your mind at ease that your house and possessions are completely secure.

However, if you do have one of the many sub standard locks, it does not need to cost a lot to install for example locks with a basic anti-snap feature. These are recommended by the police as a very important deterrent against break-ins. Alternatively, depending on the type of door ath you have, you may be able to chose high security locks. These come with a 10 year guarantee as standard, and a manufacture’s £2000 guarantee that you won’t be broken into by lock snapping.

On the other hand, you may find that your deadbolts and mortice locks are perfectly fine, and you do not need to upgrade or install new locks. Either way, you can be sure of honest, independent and free advice when you call Dr. Locks and ask us to check how secure and up to date your locks are. Dr Locks provide services for Locksmith York and near by areas.
