If I’ve lost my house key, can you make another copy of the key or do I need to change all my locks?
We can make a key to the lock of your house which would be the same as you’ve lost but depending on where it is lost or if lost with an address, we would recommend recoding the locks so the lost key can’t be used.
When moving into a new property, do you recommend changing all locks? I don’t know who has a copy of my key.
Yes, we would but we change the internals of a lock which is cheaper than putting new locks on and this prevents the old key from working that lock.
My keys are locked inside my car, can you help?

Are there differences between residential and commercial locks?
Yes, commercial locks are usually heavier and more secure, but will not fit on a standard house door, only a commercial door.
I recently purchased a commercial property, do you recommend changing all locks? I don’t know who has a copy of my key.
Yes, we recommend you do have the locks changed. However, we’ll change the internals of a lock which prevents the old key from working but is much cheaper than putting new locks on.
