How To Choose a Professional Locksmith in Newcastle

Research shows that a majority of people only think of a locksmith when they are either locked out of their car, home or office.  But there are a lot of things that we can do to improve the security of your home.

You never know when you will lock your keys in your car or home and so having a local locksmith service at your disposal is a great way to ensure that no time is lost in an emergency situation.

How to pick a Newcastle Locksmith that you can trust

Did you know that the UK Locksmith industry is unregulated and therefore it is important to select a locksmith that is trustworthy? There is a lack of awareness that a lot of locksmiths who are trading legally are not even qualified or DBS certified.

We are a locksmith company located in Newcastle, and if you experience any lock problems, you know who to call. We do also offer services to areas surrounding Newcastle. We are specialists in property security and we pride ourselves on high levels of knowledge, experience, and value for money; great customer services, convenience, and workmanship.

Therefore, when someone asks us how to choose a Newcastle locksmith, our answer is for them to consider the 4 C’s. What does this mean? Well, it simply means that for a person to get a good locksmith, they have to consider:

  • Certified and DBS Checked
  • Cost
  • Convenience
  • Customer Recommendation

With this technique, there is no way you are going to choose a bad or unlicensed locksmith to work on your property, may it be your home locks or your car’s.

1. Certified And DBS Checked (Choosing A Certified Locksmith)

When it comes to choosing a locksmith, reliability, knowledge, and experience are important. This is why they must be certified, and the only way to know they have knowledge of what they are working on is by having them produce their certificate. It is also advisable to ask them for their DBS certificate.

It is important to go for a master locksmith who you can entrust with the security of your property. Keep in mind that your security is important. In our company, we do ensure that our locksmiths go for monthly meeting updates on the latest developments in the industry.

2. The Cost (understanding locksmith costs)

Have you got a locksmith in your location and you are questioning the cost they will charge you? Well, it is important to know that when you are looking around, you will definitely identify that different companies are offering different price ranges for the same job.

Techniques Used By Less Reputable Locksmiths To Secure A Job

The truth of the matter is that there are several ways less reputable locksmiths use to secure jobs. Below are the main ways used, and it is advisable to watch out for them:

Do not be fooled by a low quote, which gradually increases as the job continues. Locks can be opened without the use of a drill – in 90% of the cases anyway. At the same time, no locksmith can guarantee that they can open every lock on the market. There are locks that cannot be opened.

Asking the correct questions when getting a quote

It is very important to make sure that you have asked the correct questions to get a full picture and an accurate quote.

What will the labour cost be?

The fact is that the cost is most likely going to be high on weekends and evenings. This is a fee everyone should be ready. At the same time, asking for a discount is the best way forward. In other words, try to identify if the charge is fixed or if it is an hourly charge. If it is fixed, it should remain fixed.

Ask if they charge a call-out fee

Mainly, this is often on top of the labour charge.

How much will the locks cost me?

It is important to try and find out the approximate price of the product. At times, this is not possible. However, if you email them, a picture will allow them to be more accurate in pricing.

REMEMBER: the moment you have all the information and agreed on the price; let them know you will pay them after the job has been completed.

We believe that we offer one of the most competitive locksmith services on the market. As such, give us information regarding what you want us to do and we will give you information regarding the cost offered. We mainly concentrate on areas that are within reach, including the cost of response and travelling cost.

3. Convenience (their working hours, locations, etc.)

The moment when you contact a locksmith, they should be in a position to come to you fast. They should be in a position to come in cases of emergencies.  There are several factors to consider:

Working hours

If you are locked out, you will urgently need to find an emergency locksmith capable of responding 24/7. However, not all locksmiths are available in the evenings and on the weekends.

Location i.e. Locksmith Near Me!

The location is a huge factor to consider when it comes to choosing a locksmith. If you search for a “locksmith near me” you want to find a genuine local locksmith. They should be in an area close to you. There are several locksmiths in Newcastle for those living in the area. The location is important because it ensures a quick response time and lower cost.

Company size and logistics

Other problems may include: the locksmiths may not be working directly for the company and, therefore, may not be vetted by the firm. The person who takes your call may be in a call centre and may not have the knowledge to give you an accurate quote. Generally, this will slow the process down. Therefore, consider services that are closer to you.

The stock

The first thing a locksmith does the moment they arrive at your property is to assess the situation first. A good locksmith will have a van full of spare parts so that they can complete the job on the spot. For unusual locks, they may have to order the part and return. Here at Key Fit, we will return as soon as the part becomes available.

4. Customer Reviews

Customer recommendations are another area one should take into consideration:

Recommendations come from different sources, which may include:

Family And Friends

Research shows that many people get recommendations from family members and friends. At the same time, we always encourage our customers to leave their reviews on our website telling us of their experience.

Online Reviews

Many people consider them to be less reliable or valuable. However, this is far from the case; they are very important even though anyone can offer their reviews regarding business. It is important to know that these reviews have been spread over a period of a long time. As such, finding a website with such a review, the chances are that these reviews are genuine compared to that or those that have been spread over a short period of time. In most cases, it is a sign that it is a fake review from someone paid only to leave such a review. As such, it is important to make sure that you are careful and observant when it comes to online reviews. Look at our review section and have a look at our locksmith Newcastle reviews to know how our services are.


By looking at the above information, it is clear that looking for good locksmiths in Newcastle does generally involve four steps.
