Inverness Locksmiths are a local family run business
We provide a friendly, reliable locksmith service throughout Inverness and the Highlands operating from a fully kitted workshop van.
So what do we do...
We know how much of a nightmare it is to be in a locked out situation so we offer an Emergency lock / door opening service for a fixed price. We always aim to open your lock using NDE methods (Non Destructive Entry) so that you won’t have to replace your locks.
KEY BROKEN IN THE LOCK?
We can extract the broken piece and get you going again. It`s even possible to cut a new key from the broken bit.
LOCKS CHANGED FOR AN AFFORDABLE FIXED PRICE!
We supply and fit all types of locks and carry a vast stock for your convenience.
We offer a keycutting service for the locks we supply. If we fit a new lock at your address we can cut any amount of extra keys and test them on site - saving you a trip to the shops. (Please Note: We won`t attend an address just to cut keys, *Unless you are house bound)
INSURANCE LOCK UPGRADES TO BS3621 (British Standard)
The locks fitted to your property must carry the British Standard Kitemark for most home insurance policies. If not then the insurance company may not pay out in the event of a claim. *Check the wording on your insurance policy. We offer a free security check in Inverness - Keeping you safe and secure.
KEYED ALIKE LOCKS
We can supply locks that work off just one key. No more carrying a massive bunch - Just a single key lets you access your front, back & patio doors , even padlocks.
This is a great service and it`s something we love doing - it makes life easier. If you have a B&B , Hotel or HMO , We can supply and fit a master suite of locks
Each room differs from the next but a master or submaster key can access them all. Ideal for Owners , Managers or the Cleaners.
uPVC DOOR STICKING?
If a door has "dropped" or is "sticking" for a long period of time it can put added pressure on the MPL (Multi point locking mechanism). This will greatly reduce its lifespan causing it to fail resulting in an expensive bill. We can re-align your door before it gets worse - Saving you money.
POLICE APPROVED WALL MOUNTED KEYSAFES / ELDERLY CARE
Homecarers find these useful as they only ever need the code in order to access the property. In an emergency situation the code could be given over the phone to paramedics. No waiting for a keyholder to arrive.
Always use genuine local trades
We've noticed a BIG increase in the number of national companies advertising locally. They'll buy an 01463 number to make you think they're local and when you call it you'll be diverted to a call centre in the South. You'll hear phones ringing in the background and people chatting, that's not the sign of a genuine local tradesman.
They will want to take a card payment over the phone to secure the job, then you will be left waiting hours while they phone around locksmiths in your area hoping to find one that they can subcontract the job to.
This is a completely dishonest way of doing business and it costs you more money than it should. The call centre takes the majority of the fee for taking the job over the phone, then you have to pay an extortionate price (to who ever turns up at your door).
GENUINE INVERNESS MOBILE LOCKSMITHS DO NOT WORK FOR THESE COMPANIES
8 Church St,
Please note that this is not a shop.
We only operate a mobile service.
When you contact Inverness Locksmiths, you'll be talking directly to me (Kevin). We are NOT part of any national call centre - and never will be!
Using a small company like Inverness Locksmiths works out more affordable. We quote all jobs before any work commences, so there's no hidden extras £££s at the end
We are not a VAT registered company, so there's no VAT to pay on your bill! This keeps the price down and you get a personal service that really cares.
