city locks norwich logoHi, we’re City Locks Norwich Ltd! We’ve just joined Buy Local and we’d like to introduce ourselves and talk a bit about keeping your property secure. We’ve been in business in Norwich since 2006 and we offer a range of locksmith services, including a 24hr emergency call out service which has helped many people get back into their homes and businesses, at all hours of the day and night.

One of our main priorities is to improve the safety of our customers’ homes. In 2015 so far, (to 31st July 2015), Norfolk Constabulary records show that there have been 404 burglaries within the Norwich City Council boundary and 2123 across Norfolk (figures from police.uk). The Police also advise that in most of these burglaries, the criminals broke into the property through a door or window. There are so many ways to improve security in your home and of course, the first measures would be to ensure you have adequate locks on the following access points:

– Windows (all windows should have sufficient locks)
– Doors (Front, Back, Patio, Garage, Shed & any other outbuildings)
– Gates (Garden, Driveway, Rear Access)

Once you’ve secured all of the doors and windows, make sure the keys are only given to people you trust, and never store them in view of a window or near your letterbox. If you need to change your locks due to a recent break-in, wear and tear, or because you need to restrict access to those who may hold keys, always use a trusted locksmith to ensure that you are getting the best quality service at a reasonable price.

City Locks Norwich Ltd offer a range of lock fittings including night-latches (e.g. Yale), mortice locks, roller door locks for garages and patio door locks. We can even help to maintain UPVC doors that have been damaged through wear and tear. If, in the event your property is burgled or damage is done to your lock, our 24 hour call out service is there to make your property safe again. Our sister company, Norwich Glass Company Ltd, can replace any damaged glass on doors or windows and can install toughened glass for your peace of mind.

As a local company, we’re so proud to be part of Buy Local Norfolk and if you ever need a locksmith in Norwich be sure to give us a call.
