What to Do If Your Locked Out
Most people will experience being locked out of their house at least once in their lives. It can be a very frustrating experience when you come home from a busy day and you find you have lost your keys. Luckily help is never far away, your local locksmith will be able to help you gain entry and even change your locks and provide you with spare keys if necessary. Below we have put together a helpful check list of what you should do if you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of being locked out of your home or business.
Make Sure There Is No Other Way of Gaining Entry
In some cases, there may be other means of getting into your property such as through a back door that has been left unlocked, or an open window if it is safe to do so. The last thing you want is to call out a locksmith and then have to let them know that you no longer need their services as you found a way in. So be sure to check there are no other safe ways of entering your property before calling a locksmith.
Have you ever given a spare key to a friend or relative in case of emergencies or to check on your property while your away? If so, it’s worth checking they still have it as they could come to your rescue and let you into your property.
Keep ID Handy
The majority of people will carry some form of ID on them at all times, however if you’re not one of those people then it’s a good idea to start. If you do get locked out of your property then a reputable locksmith will ask for some for of proof that it is your property, they are letting you into, otherwise burglars would just call out locksmiths to break into your home for them!! By keeping ID on you this will never be an issue for you.
