Grays Locksmiths has been providing emergency locksmith services in Derby for more than 30 years.

Due to the nature of our work, many customers tend to only call us in an emergency – they’ve either lost their keys, locked themselves out or have an urgent problem that they need us to fix.

But we provide a far wider range of services that you might think, so read on as we answer the question, what does an emergency locksmith do?

What is an emergency locksmith?

Emergency locksmiths are skilled experts who provide a wide range of services to help people keep their homes, businesses and vehicles safe and secure.

They install, repair, and adjust locks in everything from cars to factories, as well as providing advice and support to customers who want to bolster their security and better protect their property.

In an emergency, a locksmith can also help people to gain access to their property in instances of, for example, lost keys or broken locks.

And if the worst has happened, such as a break-in, a locksmith can help the property owner to repair any damage and make it safe and secure again.

Most locksmiths, like Grays Locksmiths Derby, are able to install, adjust and repair commercial, residential and vehicle locks and security devices, by creating duplicate keys, changing lock combinations or bypassing and resetting security systems.

They can also install, repair and maintain other security equipment, such as alarms, window or door shutters, CCTV and access control systems.

Locksmiths also offer services to people who are locked out or individuals who want to consult with someone about their security systems.

What services do emergency locksmiths provide?

Although emergency locksmiths are probably best-known for their ability to pick locks and help owners to gain access to buildings or vehicles if they are locked out, they also offer several other services, including:

Key cutting

Emergency locksmiths can cut keys for locks in residential and commercial buildings, vehicles and safes. If you’ve lost your keys or want the peace of mind of knowing you have a spare set just in case, then an emergency locksmith should be your first port of call.

Alarms and access control

Many emergency locksmiths don’t just look after locks. They can also supply and install electronic security systems for customers, including alarms, access control, CCTV and security lighting.

24-hour emergency services

Some of the services that a locksmith can provide in an emergency  include getting you back into your car or home if you’ve lost your keys, locked yourself out or your locks have been damaged. Many emergency locksmiths also provide a boarding up service and can help make your building safe and secure again in the event of a break-in.

Locks for windows and doors

If you are looking to boost security to protect your home or business premises, then an emergency locksmith can help. Locksmiths can provide, service, and repair a wide range of window and door locks to help keep your property safe.

Security safes

If you want to protect your valuables, or have locked yourself out of your security safe, an emergency locksmith can supply, install, open, repair and maintain a wide range of security vaults and safes.

Auto locksmiths

After your home or business, your car or other vehicle is probably the most important physical asset you own. An emergency locksmith can provide a wide range of services for vehicle owners, including creating spare or duplicate keys, gaining access when keys have been lost or locked inside and reprogramming or repairing remote keys and transponder keys. Plus, when something goes wrong, an emergency locksmith is often cheaper than going through your insurance or main car dealership to get the problem fixed.
