“When moving into a new property we advise getting the locks changed. “Changing the locks” is a term most people use when they want to ensure the old occupants are no longer able to get in. Some customer’s are under the impression that the locks literally need to be swapped for new ones, but they don’t. We take your existing lock, disassemble it and introduce a new set of keys. This process makes use of the existing lock and saves on unnecessary expenditure on new parts. In the rare case where we can’t rekey a lock due to poor condition or parts no longer being available then it may be necessary to put a new lock on. In that event we are well positioned to replace most locks in commercial and residential applications as we stock a wide range of product with the aim of getting the job done first time. Our technicians are also available for all emergency locksmith bondi work.
