Today Has been Hectic

Today has been rather hectic

We started off with a lock repair in Bishop’s Castle, Shropshire to a UPVC Door, then over to Much Wenlock, Shropshire fo an alarm service call.

Following that we we in Caersws, Powys where somebody was unable to get into their holiday home as the UPVC lock had failed, again we were able to open the door and repair the lock.

On the way back we stopped off in Newtown, Powys to measure a mechanical digital code lock for a customer in order to provide a quote for replacement.

Areas we Cover

In the last couple of weeks, we have travelled widely throughout the areas we cover.  Here are a few examples of where we have been and what we have been doing.

We had a customer with a broken key in Guilsfield, Powys.  It is worth noting that if you snap a key in a lock, providing it was the correct key and you don’t damage the key or lock trying to remove it yourself, we can usually remove it without damaging the lock to save the cost of having to buy a new lock and we can even cut extra keys on site if you don’t have enough spares for that lock.

In Fordham, Powys we assisted a customer with a new set of handles to replace the broken ones on their UPVC Door.

We had a customer who was unable to shut and lock their UPVC door in Trefeglwys.

In Carno, we had a customer who snapped the only key they had in their UPVC door cylinder and were unable to lock it, we were able to change it for a new one with three keys.

We had a person locked out in the cold in Llanidloes.  It is worth saying that we always try to gain entry without damaging the locks wherever possible in order to keep your costs to a minimum.  If this is not possible, we will always talk you through the options, explain them fully including costs etc.

We have undertaken numerous jobs in Newtown and Welshpool, including Lock changes, persons locked out, security upgrades, CCTV and Alarm quotes.

We upgraded some old locks in Kerry,  to new more secure locks.

In Montgomery we had a customer with a snapped key.

In Shrewsbury, we did a security survey and quote for a wireless intruder alarm system.

In Llanfair Caerinion we had a person locked out, for whom we gained entry.

Next week we already have work booked in Newtown, Welshpool, Clun, Bishops Castle and Church Stretton.

Monday 22nd January

This morning we attended an address in Guilsfield, Powys where a lady had inadvertently locked herself out of her house as the door had blown shut.

We were able to gain entry for her without causing any damage to the lock.  We lubricated the lock and tightened the cylinder whilst we were there and cut some spare keys for that and the other locks on the house.

If you have the type of door locking mechanism that can leave you locked out if the door blows shut, we can easily change this for you to a type where you need to lock the door after it closes.

Also if you have this type of lock and that is the only lock you use, you may not comply with your insurer’s minimum standards, who could refuse to pay out in the event of a burglary. If you are in any doubt we will always happily provide free advice.

We have security surveys booked for CCTV and alarm quotes in Newtown, powys and another booked lock change due to old worn out locks also in Newtown, Powys.
