What is a British Standard lock?

British Standard locks are those that have been certified by the British Standard Institution (BSI) to ensure their quality and reliability. All BSI-certified locks have a kite mark on both the packaging and the product itself, and this can be a huge help when insuring your home or filing a claim. For instance, if a theft has taken place at your property, the insurance company may reject your claim if your locks are non-standard. Moreover, installing non-standard locks can lead to higher premiums. This is why we would urge you to always use British Standard locks for extra convenience and peace of mind. Indeed, our locksmiths in Bedford always use British Standard locks in our installations. Furthermore, to boost your security and reduce the risk of your insurance being invalidated, we will work with you to ensure that all your locks comply with the highest standards.

I have lost my keys. Should I change my lock?

As experienced Bedford locksmiths, we would encourage you to replace your lock if you have lost your keys. This will help reduce the risk of someone creating copies of your key and then burgling your home.

I am moving home. Should I change the locks on the new house?

Changing locks should be one of your main priorities when moving to a new home, as you will have no idea who has copies of the keys. In fact, if you were burgled by someone with a key to your home, it might affect your ability to make a successful claim on your insurance.

My key snapped in the lock. What now?

Don’t worry. We can help by quickly sending a technician to your property. We do not recommend trying to remove the key yourself, as this may cause further damage to the lock. Depending on where the snap has occurred, we may be able to remove and repair the lock. However, there may be instances when we must replace the lock entirely.

What are the requirements for lock insurance?

In general terms, this will mainly depend on your insurance provider. Most insurance policies require external doors to be fitted with locks that comply with British Standard BS3621. In other words, there must either be a five-lever mortice deadlock/sash lock or a multi-point locking system/rim automatic deadlatch. We would encourage you to check your insurance policy, and if you are still unsure, contact your insurance company. Whatever the requirements, our Bedford locksmiths will be able to help you find the best locks for your property.

How much does a local locksmith cost in Bedford?

Typically, the cost of locksmiths – Bedford services will vary between providers and will depend on the type of assistance you need. If a problem arises, do not hesitate to contact our trusted Bedford locksmith to request a free quotation.

Although our locksmith service is based in Bedford, we have engineers and technicians stationed throughout Northamptonshire, Milton Keynes, Daventry, Kettering, Wellingborough, Market Harborough, Bedford, Rushden, Thrapston and Burton Latimer.

How quickly can the locksmith get here?

We have Bedford locksmiths on the road most of the time, and in an emergency, we try to get our technicians to you within 30 minutes. If there are no time constraints, we can schedule a suitable time for our engineer to visit.

Do you cover evenings and weekends?

Yes. Our Bedford locksmiths can aid with all lock emergencies and related jobs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Can you fix a lock without breaking it?

Our locksmiths in Bedford always try to fix and open locks without damaging the door or lock as this helps to keep the price down. However, on some occasions, we may have to break the lock as a last resort. Rest assured that we will always advise you of the cost before proceeding with any work.

I’m in a rush. How long will it take?

This will vary depending on the type of lock and its condition. For example, repairing or replacing a Yale lock usually takes 20–30 minutes. Meanwhile, a mortice lock may take a little longer (about 40–50 minutes). As mentioned earlier, to keep you informed, our locksmith Bedford service provider will provide you with a quotation before undertaking any work.

Will you have the parts to fix my lock?

In most cases, we will have all the necessary parts to fix or replace your lock. However, on rare occasions, we may need a particular lock, part or mechanism that we don’t carry in our van. In this instance, because our Bedford locksmith only charges a single call-out fee, there will be no need to pay any extra for their return visit to complete the job. Furthermore, our locks are of the highest quality, and we offer a six-month guarantee on both parts and labour.
