LockSub Approved Local Locksmiths

In the UK Locksmith industry you will see many online adverts claiming to be local locksmiths. Ask yourself the question: are they actually local? Or could this be an advertising tactic to expand their reach and are not intact local to you.

You could be kept waiting longer than expected or be charged more than quoted.

LockSub locksmiths set a radius of their current location to ensure we always assign your job to a locksmith that’s close and is able to attend in the quoted time period. We also ensure each locksmith is assigned one job at a time, to make sure they are in no rush and can provide attention to detail when handling your security.

We also advise customers to be wary, if the price quoted is too good to be true it usually is. We have developed a pricing calculator below which provides an estimate of labour rates you should expect to pay in an emergency industry. Whilst locksmiths will provide their own rates, LockSub advise members with rate cards and maximum charges to ensure customers in all settings are charged a fair price for works required.
