Locks in the City is an independent 24 Hour locksmith service, based in London. We provide Locksmith services to both the Domestic and Commercial market, as well as to all our contract work clients.
Having built up trust, reliability and integrity with my current customers over the years. I would welcome you to try my services; I pride myself on providing a high standard of service, using good quality products at competitive prices.
Calling on 12 years’ experience in the Locksmith field. I have come up against most of the locks on the market today, both new and old. I work as close to 100% non-destructive entry as I can. Meaning we will not drill or damage your locks, doors and frames. However there is a circumstance where we may have to. In situations where the lock has failed or broken. If it’s a case your keys are on the inside, or lost, then there really is no need to drill at all. We can gain entry and your locks will still work using your old keys. Unless you require your locks to be changed or updated.
There is nothing worse than when in a situation where you have locked yourself out, or you have had a break-in, in to your property or building. You want someone there to re-assure you and make good and safe ASAP. Well with-in 20-30 minutes of your call, we aim to be on site and aid in getting things back to normal as quick as possible with minimum interruption or fuss
We supply and fit locks of all types, wooden doors, aluminium doors and UPVC etc. We can supply and fit locks that comply with current insurance regulations of BS3621. These are stamped as so and carry the BS kite marked symbol. We specialise in UPVC work of doors and windows. So should your UPVC door not be working then we can attend to get it back in to operation ASAP as I am a registered Yale Doormaster Expert. I can be found on their website to show I have the knowledge and understanding to use their product which is a well-recognised and trusted name in the security market. I also can supply additional hardware to increase security and strength to doors, window, sheds, garages and anything else you wish to secure.
Having 2 well-stocked vans carrying the latest and up to date array of stock, tooling and equipment, we aim to carry out 90% of all work in the first visit. Wanting to provide an efficient locksmith service to all that use us. Should we not carry on the van what is needed, WE WILL NOT CHARGE A RE-VISIT, OR ADDITIONAL LABOUR TO LEAVE AND GO GET THE ITEM (Conditions apply).
Offering Free no obligation quotations and security surveys, including site visits, for works you wish to consider. Anything from a single lock change up to multiple locks and hardware.
