"We spent half an hour looking for a locksmith in Lichfield that was actually local, a lot of them seemed to be call centres in the Yellow Pages so we looked online and called Rick. He was prompt and came with all the required parts after diagnosing the problem on the phone. Really smooth process, no fuss and job completed to a good standard."

Lichfield Locksmith Service
General Locksmith and repairing uPVC doors is now the bread and butter work of a modern day locksmith, in fact the majority of doors repaired in Lichfield are probably uPVC or composite in design, using the same multipoint locking mechanisms.
If your uPVC door lock is beginning to feel tired or has jammed itself shut then Rick will be able to repair your door and restore it back to good working condition for you or replace with a brand new gearbox or locking strip.
The usual cause of such door problems is down to general wear and tear combined with repeated forcing of the lock when it is mis-aligned or the door has dropped.
After replacing any uPVC door lock our locksmith will ensure all adjustments are made to keep it working for many more years to come.
Beware Of Call Centers
There are a lot of call centre type operations advertising locksmiths in Lichfield.
You must ensure that any locksmith you are calling is in fact local to the area and not part of any of these national groups for two reasons;
1/ These locksmith companies charge above and beyond the usual local rates, typically 3-4 times more than a genuine local business. They will often quote vague or false figures to hook you, plus VAT on top of course!
2/ You will rarely be seen to on time and chances of rectifying any future problems are as good as none. They often employ multiple 'engineers' on poor wages that are unlikely to return if there are any problems with the work.
Never accept the first quote you get, call a few locksmiths to ensure you are dealing with a good honest locksmith in Lichfield.
Anti-Snap Locks in Lichfield
Due to high demand from both concerned home owners and insurance companies we have begun stocking an anti-snap range of locks for upvc doors that we believe is both reasonably priced and up to the job.
Having experience in opening a wide range of high security and anti-snap locks for our customers we decided on a quality anti snap lock to use as our range of British Standard lock cylinders.
Lock snapping is an increasing concern in Lichfield and across Staffordshire. Unfortunately most people do not realise the difference these can make until after the burglary.
Entry to a poorly fitted lock in a vulnerable door can be achieved in under 30 seconds without making a sound!
