Geoff can pick most door locks in under 15 minutes without causing any damage. In rare cases it isn’t possible to pick the lock and other methods need to be used. Geoff will talk to you about your options if this is the case.

In most cases Geoff will be able to hand pick your lock, causing no damage and ensuring that all your current keys still work. On the occasions when this isn’t possible it may be necessary to replace the lock. GRN stocks a wide variety of locks and will be able to replace your lock and leave your home or commercial property secure. If for any reason you are not happy to go ahead with Geoff’s suggestions you are under no obligation to go ahead with the proposed work and there will be no call-out fee to pay.

GRN’s standard re-entry charge is £75 weekdays 8am-6pm; £95 for call-outs in the evening (6pm-10pm) and weekends (8am–10pm); and £150 night-time (10pm-8am) and bank holidays. The fee is a fixed-charge to get you back in your house. In the unlikely event that Geoff can’t get you back in, you won’t be charged. If Geoff needs to damage your locks to get you in and you want to get other quotes before going ahead, you won’t be charged. For more details of the costs of fitting new locks please click here for our services and prices page. As a sole trader GRN does not have to charge VAT on labour unlike larger national companies.

If you move into a new house the only way to be 100% sure of who has keys to your home is to change the locks.

Locks on doors and windows can last decades with no problems at all but when they go wrong it can often mean that you are unable to secure your property. Contact GRN if you have any locks that are starting to stick or not quite working properly. Geoff can often just service the lock for a lower cost than replacing it. This will save you money and prevent a more urgent situation where you can’t leave the house because your locks are not secure.

It may also be necessary to upgrade locks to ensure the highest levels of security or to be insurance compliant.
