Lock Fitting / Installation
In the stress and whirlwind of moving house it is no surprise that home security gets overlooked.
However, you can never be sure how many people have duplicate keys to your new home. Thousands of homes will change hands this year with many buyers unaware that at least one spare set of keys is still in circulation with a third party. According to Home Office statistics you are almost twice as likely to be burgled in the twelve months after moving house compared with the average burglary rate (4.6% compared with 2.5%).
By not changing the locks and ensuring that all points of access around the house are secure, you could be putting yourself and your family in unnecessary danger. Also, if you were to be burgled your insurance claim may be void, as some insurance companies will state that if you have not changed the locks on moving house then you have not done enough to secure your property and prevent a burglary.
To avoid this from occurring, I am available to change locks throughout the home, including replacing your existing euro cylinder locks to snap safe locks, UPVC locks, additional window locks, garage locks, padlocks. I also offer key cutting and master keys.
