Locksmith Reading, Access and Repair

Customer Service

For all of us at Locksmith Reading, excellent customer service has always been one of the most
cherished attributes, for our business success and more importantly for our customers
satisfaction. Therefore we find it quite surprising to hear about many other companies who do not
treat their customers with the same degree of attention and care.

Some might even take advantage of their clients financial state or wellbeing. At Locksmith
Reading we firmly believe that this kind of malpractice has to end and companies that are not
using their powers to actively abolish this kind of behavior are directly or indirectly part of the
problem. Furthermore, it is important to note, not manipulating customers is not part of a good
customer service, it is merely essential good manners and not a part of any kind of service.

We are committed to maintaining open communication with our clients, we make it easy for our
clients to contact us at every hour of every day, through our always-open phone line.

We encourage our customers to contact us whenever they please, with any query they have about
their lock systems or any other service we provide. It is highly important for us to do so.
As a gesture of appreciation to the good people of Reading and Berkshire, for their support and
goodwill, demonstrated throughout over 4 years of our business activity.

Running a successful business for such a long period of time may is naturally linked to financial
growth. However, it’s important to note that, we would and have always preferred to focus our
efforts on building our services and expanding our loyal customer base, rather than just thinking
about our monetary gains. Keeping these work ethics, we can proudly say that when it comes to
improper business practice or cutting corners, we always make the effort to do the best for our
customer and keep them satisfied, and we’ve been doing so for over 4 years!

Came home to find that the kids couldn’t shut the door after coming home from school. Turned out that not only was the lock broken but the door itself was falling apart. Mircea swiftly came to my rescue replacing the lock and fixing my door. I can not tell you how thankful I am to him. Would recommend anytime. Wonderful service.

These guys are AMAZING!..Having managed to get myself locked out of my house after midnight - Berkshire Expert Locksmiths were the ONLY company that picked up the phone and dealt with my emergency. ( I tied at least 10 different numbers beforehand.) Janko was super helpful and Alex was just BRILLIANT. Excellent service and value for money. They really know what they are doing and were so polite and helpful. 5 Star service rating and highly recommended!

Alex attended my home in the time scale provided. The rear UPVC door lock had failed and the multipoint locking system was jammed. He identified and showed me an important part of the internal system that had snapped off. This was a lever that actually freed to multipoint system. Alex was persistent in getting the locks to function and kept trying different approaches. Eventually succeeding and saving the door from being wrenched open. His persistence paid off and it was impressive. Many thanks Alex. I would definitely use the company again. The call out was within the hour even though I said it wasn’t an emergency. I was told they didn’t charge emergency call out and I was dubious about this. I didn’t need to be as they were true to their word.

General Security Advice

Visible security is the most significant determining factor whether a burglary occurs or not. Propert with no security are far more likely to become victims of burglary.

The vast majority of home security measures are common sense and low cost, but can result in reduced insurance premiums.

For a relatively small cost you could make your home more secure and obtain piece of mind. Whenever you leave your property it is important to that you leave it as secure as possible.Getting into a prescribed routine can help ensure that you don’t forget obvious such as closing all windows and not leaving your valuables on display near windows. Here’s our quick reminder on what to do each time you leave your property.

  • Close and lock all doors and windows, even if you are only going out for a short time.
  • Set/turn on your burglar alarm.
  • Make sure access routes to the rear of the property, such as gates, is secure/locked.
  • Lock your shed, outhouses or garage.
  • Make sure that no valuables are in sight.
  • Put keys out of reach of letterboxes and out of sight.
  • In the evening, shut the curtains and leave some lights on.
  • Leave on a TV or radio to make it sound like you are at home.
  • Never leave car documents or personal ID in obvious or easily accessible places..
  • If you are going to be away for a longer time take additional action, such as cancelling newspaper and milk deliveries. Ask a neighbour, friend or family member to close curtains or park on your drive. Use a timer device to automatically turn lights and a radio on at night.

The majority of burglars can be deterred by these simple security measures and few want to risk a confrontation or getting caught.

Statistics show these actions would deter a would be intruder because the majority are opportunistic break ins, i.e. where they spot windows open or easy access. Extra precautions are necessary to keep out professional burglars. Most burglars want to be in and out quick so the more complicated and advanced the security – the less time a would be burglar has and the less likely they will bother to attack your property.  Below are some ways to further to protect your property:

  • Improve the security of your all doors and windows – using the latest and extra locks.
  • Main entrance front door should have a 5 lever mortise lock or cylinder mortise lock conforming to British Standard BS3621 and should be locked.
  • Other external doors should be fitted with either a 5 lever BS3621 mortise lock or with top and bottom mortise security bolts.
  • Windows at ground level are more vulnerable to forced entry, especially at the back of the property. These should be fitted with key operated window locks and the keys not left in the locks.
  • Above ground windows that can be easily reached via a roof, drain pipe or other way should be fitted with a key operated window lock.
  • French doors & patio doors should be fitted with top and bottom mortise security bolts and a mortise lock in the centre (if possible).
  • Outhouses and garages usually contain garden equipment, bicycles and other valuables etc so should be secured using 5 lever mortise locks or good quality padlocks.
  • Car and vans are now mainly stolen by stealing the car keys, either through break ins or by access through letter boxes.  Make sure vehicle keys are hidden and secure.
  • Remove keys from locked doors and windows and keep them out of sight.
  • Valuable items such as jewellery, computers, phones, electronic devices, cash, car keys and credit cards should be kept out of sight – Do not tempt a would be thief.
  • Most burglaries happen when a house or flat is empty so make it look like you are in when you are out.
  • Visible locks may deter some thieves.
  • Spare keys should never be left in obvious hiding places outside such as under the doormat, on a door frame or in a shoe – a thief will look in obvious places first.
  • Look at your property through the eyes of a burglar.
  • Light up your property and in particular the external areas during the night. Buglars don’t like being seen and this will put most off.  Motion sensor lights outside of properties by doors, windows and driveways are very effective.
  • Use time switches to turn the lights on inside your home when you are out.
