An emergency locksmith fixing a lock

What Does an Emergency Locksmith Do?

Unlike standard locksmiths, which usually have regular 9-5 working hours, an emergency locksmith is a locksmith service working on a 24 hour basis and offering call-outs across their catchment area. Oftentimes, you can never predict when you’ll need a locksmith, which is why emergency locksmiths are so important. Like standard locksmiths, an emergency locksmith provides all standard services such as lock-out support, key duplicating, break-in repairs, and more, but is also available for more specialist services and aims to provide quick and reliable call-outs for time-sensitive issues. Below, the Advance Locksmith team will explain the role of an emergency locksmith and what their day-to-day often looks like.


24-Hour Locksmith Services

As aforementioned, the main difference between a standard and emergency locksmith is that the latter works on a 24-hour call-out basis. When it comes to home security, ensuring that your locking systems are kept in good shape is a must for the safety of your property and everyone in it. If you are unfortunate enough to experience a lock-out or come home to see your locks have been broken due to a break-in, calling a locksmith (after the Gardai have been notified of the burglary) should be top of your priority list. Here at Advance Locksmith, our locksmiths offer 24/7 call-outs to fix these issues, giving you peace of mind that you, your home, and your home’s contents are safe and secure once again without having to wait for normal working hours for this.


Fast Call-Outs to Catchment Areas

Another massive benefit of emergency locksmith services are that they offer call-outs to specific catchment areas, meaning that you will receive a call-out service in a fast, efficient, and reliable time frame. No one wants to be left waiting outside after a lock-out or left feeling unsafe in their own home following the failure or breakage of a security system, which is why Advance Locksmith offers locksmiths stationed across Dublin, Wicklow, and Kildare that are available at any time of day or night. To avail of the services provided in these areas, simply get in touch via phone on 01 5134655 and a locksmith will be with you ASAP.



Specialist Locksmith Services

Another aspect of emergency locksmithing that varies slightly from standard locksmith services is that emergency locksmiths generally deal with more time-sensitive and specialist services. While standard locksmiths offer key cutting and general lock installation quite regularly, an emergency locksmith only offers time-sensitive services such as lock-out relief, broken lock repairs, burglary repairs, etc. These services often require specialist tools, equipment, and expertise which an emergency locksmith provides. As a long-established, professional locksmith service, you can rely on Advance Locksmith to help you with emergency repairs on a 24-hour basis across Dublin, Kildare, and Wicklow.
