Unfortunately, most of us will experience being locked out at least once in our lives, this can be an incredibly stressful experience especially when your looking forward to a bit of down time after a long day at work. Fortunately, help is only a phone call away! Give your local locksmith a call and they will be able to come and gain entry to your property and even change the locks if necessary. Below our team at No Shut Sure Lock Bradford have put together a helpful guide outlining things you should do if you ever find yourself locked out of your property so you know exactly what to do and hopefully eliminate a bit of the stress for you.
Check For Other Entry Points – Have a look around your property to see if there is another way into your property such as a back door that has been left unlocked, an open ground floor window if it is safe to do so or if you have access to a garage that has an internal door to your property. If you do manage to get inside then at least that’s one problem solved and you can focus on finding your keys, if you can’t find your keys or fear they have been stolen then you can call out a locksmith to come and change the locks and provide you with a new set of keys.
Spare Keys– Have a think back and try and remember if you have ever given a spare key to your property to a family member or close friend. If this is the case, you can call them to come and let you into your property. Again once your in your property you can retrace your steps and try to locate your keys, and if they don’t turn up or you think someone may have stolen them you can call out your local locksmith to come and upgrade them for you.
Carry ID – Most people do carry some form of ID with them at all times, however if you are one of those that don’t it might be a good idea to start. If you do ever find yourself locked out of your property, then any reputable locksmith will want to see some form of ID so they know that the property they are letting you into is in fact your property. If locksmiths never asked for ID then burglars could just call out a locksmith to let them into your property!
Use A Reputable Locksmith – If you find yourself in a situation where you do need a locksmith then it is a good idea to do a bit of research before you call one. Unfortunately, there are national companies out there that pose as local locksmiths, they overcharge and are renowned for poor workmanship. So, check online reviews and even ask friends or family for a recommendation so you can be sure your getting a reliable locksmith.
