Common Garage Lock Problems

If you decide to gain entry yourself without proper qualifications, you run the risk of damaging the door, hinges and locking mechanism. On the other hand, turning to the services of a professional locksmith guarantees the resolution of a situation with the least financial and material losses. The only requirement for the locksmith to proceed with the gain of entry is prior confirmation of the property’s ownership. You will need identification documents. If documents are not at hand, the gain of entry will be carried out in the presence of a neighbour or local police officer. Call us in the following cases:

  • Jamming of a locking mechanism;
  • Freezing of mechanical moving parts (winter time);
  • Loss or theft of keys;
  • Out of alignment door hardware elements.

The Cost of Opening a Garage Lock

The cost of opening garage locks depends on the specific situation; the starting price is 99 £. The locksmith determines the cost of work after on-site assessment and proceeds with the garage opening upon agreeing on all the details with the customer.
