Many Locksmiths Warrington customers and many others often think that Locksmiths spend all their time dealing with peole who are locked out when this in fact only accounts for approximately ten percent of our work.
About 20 percent of the time Locksmiths Warrington are replacing locks that are working okay its just that someone has keys for them that no longer live there such as rented property or when someone moves into a new premises and they want peace of mind by knowing no one else has keys but themselves.
About 70 percent of our time is spent dealing with upvc door locks/handles as these types of doors represent about 70 percent of all doors in the UK, and even though they are low maintenance they are not without problems such as door dropping causing problems with the door lock and handles.
We also do a bit of specialist work such as replacing locks in church properties, this can mean sourcing and upgrading locks on churches without changing the condition of the doors.

Here at Locksmiths Warrington we dont charge a call out fee and with our Locksmiths In Warrington you pay for the job and not per hour.
When looking for locksmiths in Warrington you will have plenty of choice so whats the difference ? We suggest asking a few questions to help you make a decision such as how long have you been in business ? this helps you to check out the stability of the locksmith, will you provide me with reciept ? most genuine locksmiths will provide you with a receipt and contact details in case yo need them for the future, also genuine locksmiths will guarantee both work and parts and also of course when you speak to them over the phone how do you feel if you dont feel comfortable then dont book them.
Most Locksmiths who have been in business for a while should be able to give you a price over the phone based on your answers to a few questions
always check that your not paying a call out fee or admin charge and ask if there will also be vat added as this will push up your bill by 20 percent
our Locksmiths in Warrington, do not charge vat do not charge a call out fee and charge for the job and not per hour.

We take away the guesswork by supplying you with a remote and programming it with your original working remote at your property thus ensuring that the remote is working works this saves our customers both time and money in purchasing rmotes that dont work.
Please note these remotes are for programming with an already working remote they cannot be programmed without this.
Upvc doors account for more than 70 per cent of all doors in the UK the majority of which have a multipoint locking system and although they are less maintenance than a wooden door they do have their problems and as a consequence of this our Locksmiths Warrington spend a lot of time solving UPVC door lock problems.
So what can go wrong ? Upvc doors are heavy and over time they can drop slightly this could result in your door lock not working correctly, the following are scenarios that we often hear from customers when they are having Upvc Door Lock Problems.
A) The handle wont go up fully when im locking the door - We would ask you to open the door and try to lift the handle up then lock the door when its open, if the handle works okay this way then the problem is with the alignment of the door, if the handle still wont go up properly then the problem will be with your multilock itself which may need replacing.
B) My handles are just spinning round - We would ask you to check if this is the same on bothe sides of the door if the answer is yes then it indicates to us that your multilock needs replacing, iof its only happening on one side of the door then it tells us that its your handle thats the problem and this may need replacing.
When looking for high security locks then theres only one that.Locksmiths Warrington reccomend and fit and thats the Brisant Ultion, why this lock ? Well its accredited to TS007 3 Star standards and is also a Sold Secure Diamond Standard Lock.

When choosing a Warrington Locksmith whats the difference ? most people will only be looking for a Warrington Locksmith once in a lifetime and with so many to choose from who should you ask to do wotrk for you ?. Its a difficult choice as most Warrington Locksmiths will be advertising in the same manner using the same keywords however we suggest that you ask a few questions to help you decide.
For example how much will it cost ?
A lot of locksmiths do sub contract work for call centres so when you phone they will be unable to give you a fixed price as the call handler will not know whats involved, a Local Locksmith will be able to give you a price over the phone based on what you say is wrong.
A national locksmiths firm will not be able to tell you how long they will be as they will need to find someone to send first of all, when you phone us you will be speaking directly to the owners, we can let you know how long we will be.
So when choosing a Warrington Locksmith please ask for price, response time, is there any call out charge and is there any guarantees.

How do locksmiths open locked doors ? its easy isnt it ? these are questions that people like to ask and with youtube videos it always seems easy our Locksmith in Warrington Derek explains that like everything else its always seems easy when you know how.
Opening lockled doors depends on the type of lock, type of door and knowledge and experience plus equipment available our Warrington Locksmiths have now been opening locked doors for over 9 years using methods such as picking, drilling, lock bypass and other methods of destructive entry.
When you lose a key for a lock, picking the lock simply replicates what the key would do, lock picking requires knowledge of the lock plus skill in picking that particular type of lock, remember that locks are designed to keep people out including Warrington Locksmiths so can include anti pick pins anti drill pins and trap pins so its not always viable to spend time picking a lock especially when your going to replace it anyway.
When a lock is faulty and your unable to open it with your key then picking the lock would be no good because it simply replicates your key which is not working, in this case locksmiths Warrington would consider another way of opening your door either by bypassing the lock or drilling the lock.
Again driling a lock is not as easy as it sounds or seems on youtube, Locksmiths Warrington 07855 867422 have been to many doors where they have been drilled in the wrong place causing damage to more than the lock, the drilling of a lock requires knowledge of the lock and experience plus the right tools for the job.

At Locksmiths Warrington we help keep people safe thats basically what we do an example of this is pioctured. This lock was on a 4th floor apartment door and obviously theres a few things not right with it.
Its the wrong colour and doesnt match the door furniture, its oversized for the door but the biggest problem with it is the fire risks.

This lock was replaced with a thumbturn lock to comply with fire regulations and keep the tenant, landlord and letting agent safe. When looking for a Locksmith in Warrington call Derek or Pam on 07967 778940 we are here for our customers.
