    Getting locks changed

    Locksmiths

    Is it possible to get my locks changed on the very day that I’m moving house, assuming that I’ve got it planned well in advance or is this too difficult to pull off?

    "Of course it is Bill. If you get exact replacement's then you could do it yourself anyone could just take whatever locks need to be replaced well in advance to hardware store et new ones then change over on the day as it's only a couple of screws for each lock easy peasy."

    "No this can be arranged anytime. Best thing to do is book in when you know your moving day and rough time."

    "As long as the locksmith has stock on his van the locks can be changed straight away.
    It would be a good idea to send photos of the locks in advance."

    "Hi Bill - Simple answer would be yes - contact a local locksmith and arrange to meet them at a day/time to suit - most Locksmiths would be happy to book an appointment.

    Only problem I've had in the past as a locksmith is the customer doesn't always know a time when the paperwork is completed and they can get the keys. I've suggested booking a later time (early evening) - usually changing locks is a straight forward job and doesn't take long - hope this helps - Roger"

    "This is definitely possible but will depend on a few things.
    The locksmith will need to book you in for that day that you're moving.

    I'm assuming you're changing the locks so that previous key holders won't have access. Most locksmith will have replacement cylinders and euros on their van. You will need to know the locks that you're replacing and which ones you're having installed so that the locks are purchased before hand."

    "Yes, you should be able to get locks changed on the day you move house. It helps to have an idea of what is needed, but most locksmiths will have a range of locks in stock.
    If you have photos in advance that would help identify what sort of locks are required."

    "Hi Bill,

    This will be a very short and sweet answer. Most locksmiths are set up for emergency response. In practice, this means that many locksmiths, would be in attendance within 30 mins of your call. However, if you can plan ahead, it will no doubt benefit you - especially given the high stresses associated with moving.
    I hope everything works out for you."
