Based in Dartford, Locks ‘N’ Tools cover the whole of Kent including the small town of Greenhithe which is located less than four miles to the east of our home. Finding good locksmiths in the area isn’t always easy, particularly as effective UK licensing for the industry is still some way off and any person can trade or advertise as a locksmith company. To ensure you find the right service provider, you should always check their credentials first.
Recommendations and approval from third parties who have used a particular set of locksmiths in the past is vital. We also recommend that your locksmith has MLA approval. This gives property owners in Greenhithe the reassurance of knowing their service provider has been vetted, inspected and employed as a qualified locksmith.
Be wary of locksmiths who claim approval from any other organisation outside of the MLA (Master Locksmiths Association) or MBLA. Some associations automatically issue approval for the use of their logos through payment alone so their accreditation isn’t necessarily a seal of approval for services provided.
We recommend that home and business owners in Greenhithe always look for local locksmiths instead of opting for companies that are only contactable through national call centres. Much of the work taken on through call centres is immediately subcontracted to locksmiths who haven’t been vetted and who don’t have MLA accreditation. In many cases, these companies will usually charge more than a local locksmith too.
Because Locks ‘N’ Tools is a local company, there’s an excellent chance that our locksmiths may have already undertaken work for somebody you know in the Greenhithe area. This brings us back to the importance of recommendations. If previous customers have been happy with our work, there is no reason why they won’t give our company their approval.
It’s very important to consider the services that locksmiths provide. While much of our work is obviously centred on helping people access their properties when keys are lost, we can also repair, replace or upgrade locks for just about any purpose. Locks ‘N’ Tools specialise as auto locksmiths, supplying transponder keys and programming remote control fobs.
