Moving house – security tips

Moving house is said to be one of the most stressful experiences in life. We understand that the weeks leading up to the move, let alone the day of the move itself, are demanding enough without being told that there is yet another task that needs doing. However, Locksmiths Aldrington would recommend that when you move into a new property there are a number of security measures you should take to protect your precious new home.

Firstly, Locksmiths Aldrington recommends that you immediately get all the external locks on your property changed. If you don’t, who knows how many past tenants or owners hold the keys to your property? Contacting Locksmiths Aldrington prior to your move to arrange an appointment will mean there is one thing less to keep track of during those hectic days following the move. If your plans change for any reason, make just one quick call to us and we’ll understand and, if necessary, reschedule; Locksmiths Aldrington prides itself on its flexibility of service.

Money paid on good security equipment pays dividends in the long run, so don’t run the risk of mortice locks or deadlocks working themselves loose, or of keys snapping. Locksmiths Aldrington will be able to help you out here, because we work with quality products every time.

Thirdly, get replacement keys cut to cut the risk of being locked out of – or in! – your home. Locksmith Aldrington offers a first-rate key-cutting service, producing durable Yale, Chubb and window keys that will stand the test of time.

The final suggestion that Locksmiths Aldrington will make is to install motion-activated lights.  Not only will you appreciate them when you come home at night and are searching for your keys, but they act as a deterrent for potential intruders. Locksmiths Aldrington stocks a range of such lights, so we’re sure to have one to suit your property.
