Lockmart's locksmith services come highly recommend by our customers. Ask about our services in Melbourne's south-east and the Mornington Peninsula. 

When choosing a quality locksmith service, here are some things to look for:

Prompt service

Locksmith services

If you are locked out of your car, home or place of work, you want an immediate solution so you can continue with your day. A locksmith with a team of 24-hour mobile locksmiths can help you get where you need to go, even outside of business hours. 

A reliable locksmith should arrive at the pre-arranged time with the tools needed to complete the job. 

Common problems include security system repairs, replacement of locks, or a car key that requires recoding. Whatever the issue, a good locksmith will resolve the problem efficiently.

Warranty on products and service

High-quality locksmithing products should come with a warranty that meets the industry standards. Look for a locksmith with over six years experience for certainty that your products will be installed with the appropriate skill and care.

If there's an issue with a job, a good locksmith will stand by their work and provide a warranty solution. 

Compliance and insurance

If you need a security solution for a public venue, ensure that the system is guaranteed to meet all relevant compliance regulations.

Be sure to ask about the locksmith's public liability insurance and previous experience with security for public spaces, before booking the job.

If you've been locked out of your house, office or car, expect that you will be asked for ID before being granted access.  

Realistic prices

When enquiring about locksmith services, ask for a transparent quote before booking the job.

The cost of any work can depend on whether the job is for a motor vehicle, residential property or commercial property.

The price will be determined by: 

  • Size of job
  • Urgency of the work
  • Whether the job can be done within business hours
  • Parts and materials needed

A locksmith should provide a quote for options to suit your budget and security requirements.

For example, if it's time to change your locks, ask about re-keying as a less-expensive option.

Excellent customer service

With security issues at stake, excellent customer service can help to build trust and reassure you that the locksmith has the knowledge and resources to solve your problem. 

Staff should assist you with a solution quickly and efficiently. The locksmith should arrive at the agreed time, promptly carry out the work, and clean up once the job is complete.

A quality locksmith will be courteous and provide a professional service from start to finish, keeping you well-informed about the progress of the job.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff 

A competent locksmith will provide honest, informed advice in all circumstances. Choose a locksmith whose focus is providing the best solution, not making bigger sales.

You should be presented with a variety of options to consider, with a recommendation on which option best suits your requirements.

A locksmith with extensive industry experience should offer you excellent value for money, and provide the latest security technology.

Choose a locksmith with a good reputation and friendly staff, who is willing to take the time to find the solution that is right for you. 

High-quality workmanship

Whether you need a repair, upgrade or installation, high-quality workmanship will ensure that the solution lasts.

An experienced locksmith takes pride in their work and follows industry best practices at all times. 

Top-quality products

A skilled locksmith will provide the latest digital security, as well as reliable door hardware that meets or exceeds building regulations. 

Outside the box solutions

If you need a scalable security solution, ask about the options for your residential, industrial, retail or real estate property. A good locksmith will work with you to create a customised solution that best suits the security challenges you face. 

A locksmith with diverse expertise is more likely to have the knowledge to design a custom security solution. Look for a locksmith that has provided high-quality access control to other residential or commercial properties with similar requirements.
