We are proud to be a genuinely local 24-hour locksmith and your call will be answered by a trained and experienced locksmith.
You may not realise but many of the apparently local numbers featured in directories are actually national companies in disguise – your call is redirected to a call centre and the person handling the call is unlikely to be a locksmith. These companies will often promise a locksmith but then not confirm the booking for some time whilst they ring around to locate an available engineer – we have met customers who’ve waited several hours to then be told that there is no-one available!
They often quote a low labour charge to tempt customers to book their services but the parts prices will then be inflated to cover the cost of the call centre, advertising and then subcontracting out to a local locksmith (who will only receive a small percentage despite actually doing most of the work).
You will receive a completely different level of service from a genuine local locksmith – by liaising directly with the customer we can usually establish exactly what the problem is and give you a more accurate idea of what needs to be done and the timescale in which we expect to be with you. Admittedly it can be difficult to give a precise quote without seeing the parts needed because to the untrained eye locks look very similar but can vary wildly in price depending on brand and security level.
We don’t have a middleman to pay so you get better value for your money and the reassurance of knowing that if necessary we can provide follow up advice and care because we are local to you.
You have the reassurance of knowing that the company you have called is actually responsible for the work done – we include staff photos on our adverts so that you know who will be arriving to do the work. Our uniforms, vans and paperwork all have our logo so you know there is no 3rd party involved.
All our staff are DBS checked and salaried – no-one is on commission!
Millennium are proud to complete 99% of our jobs on the same day. It’s rare that a locksmith is able to repair a window lock on the same day of the first visit. We stock a range of mechanisms that are ready to be installed. No waiting, no fuss!
This is reassuring for those that are left with a front door that they can’t lock, as broken window locks can leave a home vulnerable
In the rare event that we’re unable to finish the job on the same day, we’re able to fit a secure overnight lock to keep you safe, and then complete the job as soon as the parts are available.
