Local 24 Hour Emergency Locksmiths Blog
One of our Lock Serv team of locksmiths in Reading recently heard a story from another part of the UK. It started with: “You'll never guess what happened to me!” Before any answer could be given, the story came pouring out: “My front door handle snapped off in my hand! Just like that! Didn’t know what to do, so knocked on my neighbour’s door. He found me a number for a local emergency locksmith. It was brilliant! He was round in no time and was so friendly and helpful. He sorted out and fitted a replacement lock unit. What was even better, he casually mentioned that, if I’d messed about with it myself and ended up having to replace my particular front door, it would have cost just short of a thousand pounds! Saved me a packet!”
Now, here at Lock Serv, offering a service as a 24 hour locksmith in Reading and the surrounding area, this seemed like no big deal. To be honest, it’s just the kind of thing we do day in and day out. A customer contacts us in some kind of emergency, such as lost car or house keys, or keys that jam in a lock, and we respond quickly and sort it out. This story was another reminder to us that what we do every day, and can seem commonplace to our experienced and time-served team, is an often anxiety-inducing or even frightening emergency for lots of folk.
Another common situation we are asked to deal with is when people move into a property they’ve just bought. The previous owners have provided the necessary keys, but for many, a real sense of security is only found when they have their “own” locks in place. It’s not unknown for those past owners to have given copies of their keys to friends who might then have fed the goldfish when they were on holiday. Relatives may also have been given a key, and this has been forgotten when moving out. With the possibility of keys to their new home being out there, it’s no surprise that new locks are often a priority!
So, whenever you need an emergency locksmith in Reading, our Lock Serv team will appreciate the importance of sorting your worrying situation with speed and a lack of hassle or fuss. After all, it’s what we do! So, for that moment when an unexpected something happens to you, it pays to have our emergency 24 hour number to hand: 07866 517 928.
