"Freddie was amazing. He was so patient, professional, kind and understanding! Our front door jammed at 9.30pm with no other way for us to leave the house. By midnight he had managed to open the door, replace the gears and fix the door so it would not happen again and all at a very reasonable price. I cannot express how impressed we are by Freddie and the service offered by LockRite. Thank you does not cover it. I will recommend LockRite to all my family and friends. I would not hesitate to recommend Freddie and LockRite to anyone. Thank you LockRite and especially Freddie" - Mrs Tara Bailey

Thieves Targeting Houses With Locksmith Stickers

Thieves are using stickers advertising a fictitious local locksmith company to mark homes which are an 'easy target'. The criminals carry out a preliminary reconnaissance on the area and mark houses which are deemed as having poor security measures in place. They later return to break into the houses which have already been marked as targets. The authorities are advising residents to remove the stickers immediately if they see any on their doors or windows.

Is your home secure? Call us today on 01507 308795 to arrange a security check on your premises.

Tips For Choosing a Locksmith in Alford

There are many factors to consider when choosing a locksmith in Alford. Our checklist below should help you when making a decision.


  • Check the locksmith is DBS (CRB) checked. This will reveal whether they have a hidden criminal past. You need someone you can trust working with your home security, so if they do not have a clean DBS (CRB) check walk away.

  • Check the price quoted is what you will pay. Many locksmiths will quote one price on the phone only to bump the price up dramatically once the work has been undertaken. Make sure you know what you will be paying before work commences and sign something agreeing to the charges.

  • Make sure you are happy with what the locksmith says regarding your home security and don't be pressurised into an expensive upsell. Not all locks are equal, and some cheaper locks do not provide adequate security for home insurance purposes so make sure if you're having new locks installed they are right for you.

  • Always use a trusted locksmith with a decent reputation and accountability. There are many rogue traders who just want to rip customers off. Check their websites for testimonials and guarantees. If anything looks or feels dodgy, walk away and find another locksmith.

  • Call their advertised number and see how long it takes them to answer. If calls are left ringing with no answer or diverts to voicemail numerous times it could indicate they will be difficult to get hold of if there is a problem with their work. Use a locksmith who answers their phone!


Hopefully this checklist will help you to choose the best Alford locksmith for your needs.

All LockRite locksmiths are DBS (CRB) checked and will always confirm the price you will pay before commencing any work.

Having problems locking your uPVC door?

This is a more common problem than you may think. Do you have to lift the handle and hold it in the fully up position and still struggle to turn the key? If so, this can be putting undue stress on to the multipoint locking system, the cylinder, the handles and hinges of your door. This can lead to premature failure of any or all of these parts and land you with an expensive repair bill. If you are really unfortunate your door could fail in the locked position, either locking you out or into your property. If this sounds familiar, give us a call, we will attend, assess and resolve the problems for you, normally within an hours labour charge plus parts and VAT where necessary.

Home Security Tips All Homeowners Should Know

What is more important to you: your money or your security? It is likely that you will say security, but who can afford a fancy monitored system? Regardless of your budget, there are ways to make your home more secure. Keep reading for expert advice which is affordable and accurate. If you decide to install a home security system, research the company thoroughly. Having options, including someone instantly calling you if the alarm goes off in order to notify the police if necessary, should influence your decision. Think about what's most important to you and consider your budget before choosing. Always make sure you check people out before they enter your home. You don't want anyone getting the chance to scope out your security system just because you let them inside. Talk about making things easy on them! Instead, keep your home just as guarded as before so that you stay safe. Never leave a note on your door for delivery or service people. A note on a door might as well be a neon sign for a potential intruder, alerting them to the fact that nobody is home. Try to arrange for a friend or neighbor to accept your delivery or let a service person onto the property if you cannot be home. While investing in a home is a big cost, you also have to invest in its security.

25% Of All Vehicle Thefts Now Involve The Use Of A Key

The latest UK crime statistics show an alarming rise in vehicle thefts involving the use of a key with 25 percent of all stolen vehicles now being taken with the original key or a cloned copy. It is important to lock your car, even when kept in a garage, and ensure your car keys are kept out of sight from the opportunist thief as a car which is stolen with the use of a key is unlikely to be covered in the event of an insurance claim.
