Femi was absolutely fantastic with the job at hand, he was punctual,(even early) with a call to say that he could make it earlier if it was convenient for me. Femi was very professional and knows exactly what he is doing he is greatly proficient with his work. I am so pleased with the work done and his prices that we even discussed some other work that I need to be done within the house including electrical and carpentry. Femi is an all round workman and seems to have a wide skill set within domestic/engineer work. Thank you soo much Femi.

Lock replacement almost always involves lock installation. However, lock installation can also mean adding a lock to something to a fixture, furniture piece, or even appliance that did not have a lock before. For example, your mobile locksmith can also add a lock onto a cabinet, wardrobe, or even a refrigerator. That said, installing locks to furniture or appliances can keep your belongings extra secure.

Lock fitting and lock installation can take a few minutes to a few hours. This depends on whether you need to replace a lock altogether or if you’re changing the type of lock altogether. For example, if you’re installing a keyless entry system, then it might take a bit longer to remove the older lock mechanisms and introduce brand new technology. Rest assured that your Tasker will work as efficiently as possible.

Yes, a locksmith can provide you with new keys. What’s great about Airtasker is that you can find a locksmith who suits your needs and can fashion a new key for you when you install a new lock.

Whether it’s a traditional deadbolt lock or a keyless entry system, you can find a Tasker who can fit and install the best lock for your home. Below is the possible range of services that you can look forward to: 

Lock fitting

A professional locksmith can help properly fit a lock to your door or window. Remember that there are different types of locks that work best with certain kinds of doors and windows. For example, a UPVC door lock functions best with a patio door or screen door. 

Consult with your Tasker with what lock options you can choose from. Using their tools, they can fit the lock perfectly into your barrier or aperture. 

Door lock installation

Most mobile locksmiths are trained in residential lock installation and help properly install locks to your front door, patio door, and bedroom doors. If you own an office or a retail space, then your mobile locksmith can also repair, replace, and install new locks for your building or store. 

Keep in mind that replacing your locks can ensure the security of your home and prevent break-ins.

High-security lock installation
