5 Common Reasons Locksmiths are Called Out

Top Reasons to Call a Locksmith

There are plenty of reasons why locksmiths are called out by people in need, but some reasons are more common than others. Having been in the locksmith game as long as we have, we have come across some reasons more than others. In this blog, we are going to outline what those reasons are and how we at East London Locks are able to assist you if you experience any of the issues. The 5 most common issues include:

1. Urgent Need of Replacement Keys

The need for replacement keys is one of the main reasons why locksmiths are called out to homes. People lose their keys, we’re only human at the end of the day. You shouldn’t have to go without just because you have lost your key, (especially if it was during a night out, we’ve all been there)!

2. Changing of Locks

Another reason that locksmiths are called out to the homes of people in need of assistance is because they need their locks changed. This can be because of many reasons, maybe you have lost your one and only key to your property and are unable to enter until you get a new one, or perhaps you have been the victim of a burglary and your keys have been stolen and you wish to prevent this terrible ordeal from happening again by changing the locks to try and stop the intruder from getting into your home again.

3. Lock Repair

Is your lock broken and are you unable to enter your home?

Perhaps your keys still work but it takes a long while to actually unlock your door, we are able to help.

4. Locked Out of Your Property

It happens, we know that, which is why we are always on call 24 hours a day to come to the rescue and let you back into your home!
