Although our locksmiths can respond to a burglary quickly and efficiently, it is important to try and protect your property from theft. There are a number of precautions you can take:
- Check that all the doors and windows are locked at all times
- Check that all door locks meet British standards
- Check that neither house keys nor car keys are in sight or easy reach of windows or doors and that they aren’t kept in an obvious place in the house.
- Fit key-operated locks to any windows.
- Install a visible burglar alarm, and turn it on whenever leaving the house.
- Make sure thieves can't get into the garden with a good fence surrounding the house and a locked side gate.
