When Do You Need An Emergency Locksmith?

Although there are many occasions when a locksmith is needed, there are certain occasions where calling a locksmith is more of an emergency. If you are looking to have extra keys cut, or if you want to change the locks of a home you’ve recently purchased, these are important tasks, but don’t constitute a locksmith.

When you do find that you need a locksmith in an emergency situation, it’s really important that you have the contact details of local locksmiths that provide 24 hour call-outs logged into your phone, or stored in a notebook that you always have with you. This bit of preparation will put you in good stead to deal with a difficult situation when you are faced with an emergency situation.

If you are in need of an emergency locksmith, be sure to contact us at All Locks for an enquiry. We offer a range of services and seek to provide great services with competitive prices. 

What If I’m Locked Out Of My Home?

If you are locked out of your home and have no easy way to get in quickly without causing damage to your property, this is classed as an emergency call-out. For example, if you find yourself locked out in the middle of the night and there is no way that you can get hold of someone with a spare key, your best bet is always to call a 24 hour locksmith.

If your keys are damaged and won’t work, emergency locksmiths can cut a replacement on site, helping you to get inside as soon as possible. However, if your keys are lost, it’s usually advisable for a locksmith to change your locks to make sure your property is secure.

What If Someone Leaves On Bad Terms?

Obviously, if someone moves out of your home on good terms, for example, if your children get their first place of their own, it’s likely that you’ll still want them to keep a key. However, if someone moves out on bad terms, for example, after a messy break-up, and takes their key with them, it’s likely that you will want to feel assured that they can’t come back in.

In this situation, you should call out an emergency locksmith. It’s always important that you are able to feel safe and secure in your own home.

What If There Was a Break-In Or Burglary?

This kind of emergency takes precedence over lock-outs and broken keys and unfortunately, this is a common reason for calling an emergency locksmith. Should you be burgled, or at least have your home broken into, after calling the emergency services, you should always call a locksmith to help secure your home.

Understandably, an event such as a break-in or burglary is very traumatic and may leave you feeling unsafe in your own home, let alone your possessions. A locksmith aims to help make you feel safe again, providing security for your house as soon as possible by professionally replacing locks. One of the most common methods for burglars gaining entry into homes is bumping or snapping locks. An emergency locksmith can prevent this by installing anti-snap locks.
