It was an early start this morning for the Leicester locksmiths team here at J G Locksmiths. It was around 6am when the first call came in and it was a very frustrated shop keeper from the city centre who was unfortunately locked out of their shop after the key had snapped off in the lock. We arrived on site within 30 mins and it was only ten minutes later and the shop keeper was inside setting things up for the start of the day, whilst our engineer fitted a set of new screw in cylinders for the metal door. We also supplied 8 extra keys which we cut on site. It was straight from her we were off to a job booked in for 8 am in Wigston. This was a simple lock upgrade for a customer who wanted snap safe cylinders fitting to front and back door but they wanted both locks to have the same key. Here at Leicester locksmiths we often supply keyed alike cylinders for customers and also master suite systems for some of our commercial clients.
We managed to fit in a quick bacon cob before we were off to Groby to look at someone’s UPVC door which had jammed shut. On arrival we completed the usual tests and realised that the door mechanism had broken, which is more common than people think. Within 30 minutes our engineer had the door open and we were able to fit a new gearbox there and then, as our fully stocked Leicester locksmiths van carry the vast majority of common parts, this saving the customer time and money as no return visit was necessary. We then received a call from one of our contract clients who required an extra digital lock fitting on an admin cupboard then it was time for lunch.
From here we had a drive to an industrial estate just outside Leicester city centre to remove a jammed padlock on a delivered container. Also managed to fit in a welcome cup of coffee! From here we then had to drive back into Leicester city centre to supply and fit a new lock on the glass doors of a well visited café who had unfortunately had a set of keys vanish.
Here at Leicester locksmiths we are a well trusted and customer focussed team, who are both professional and reliable and because of this we have a lot of repeat business and recommendation’s. If you have any lock or security issue, please call for advice and a free quote.
