To gain some insight as to the nature of the jobs the emergency after hours locksmith was called out to this weekend, we have come up with a list of reasons people have needed our services. Hopefully there are a few things people can do to avoid needing a locksmith. Our emergency after hours locksmiths found the following reason to be the most common reasons for call outs:
To gain entry to a home or a vehicle. This will happen when your keys are accidentally locked in the house or car. It happens to the most careful of us. Also if your keys are unfortunately stolen, you will need to gain entry before having a replacement cut. The locksmith will change the lock so that the old key will no longer work.
To rekey a vehicle or a home. This happens most commonly not through theft of the keys but people losing them. This is of course is very inconvenient for our clients as often the key may open several doors and all will need to be rekeyed for your security (else if someone finds the keys they can access your property). It is essential to do this as often keys are stolen with other identifying information (such as in a handbag with a home address on a license etc).
These are by far the most common callouts our emergency after hours locksmiths receive each weekend.
