Covid – 19 Update From Inta-lock locksmiths

Locksmiths – still open for business in Leicester

The coronavirus pandemic has affected businesses in all sectors in the UK, and locksmiths have been no exception. But mobile locksmiths – including Inta-lock Locksmiths in Leicester – are still open for business, although observing strict conditions to avoid risking spreading COVID-19 to customers. 

While much of the UK appears to have come to a stop thanks to lockdown measures to try and stem the tide of coronavirus – everything from restaurants to sporting events – life does still go on at home. Of course, this means that, as in more normal times, things break – including locks.

If a lock breaks or jams, especially if it is a crucial one such as on a front door, then it isn’t something that can be left to fix until lockdown measures are lifted – whenever that may be. Fortunately, locksmiths are still working, although under strict conditions, as you would expect.

Many locksmith shops are closed, but those who offer mobile services are still operating. While locksmiths may not get the publicity of some other sectors, we nevertheless provide an essential service for those who need it. 

Inta-lock Locksmiths’ team of experienced locksmiths are undertaking emergency housecalls to residential and business properties while fully complying with the social distancing measures as set out by the government. For instance, locksmiths will stay more than two metres away from anyone else in the property, and our professionals are using personal protective equipment (PPE) such as face masks, gloves and shoe coverings at any job we go to. These are also replaced before visiting the next client to avoid any risk of cross-contamination.

Any locksmiths that suspect they may have coronavirus symptoms are advised to stay at home and self-isolate for 14 days. At Inta-lock locksmiths we take the safety of our professionals and clients very seriously and do all we can to keep everyone safe during this time.

We also ask that customers ensure that our professionals are aware that the client is self-isolating for the safety of our locksmiths.

Our professionals also using hand sanitizer and will clean any locks, door handles etc that have been touched in the completion of the job.

Likewise, Inta-lock Locksmiths’ team of auto locksmiths are still working to fix broken locks or help people get back into their vehicle if they have been locked out. While social distancing is easier when working on a vehicle, which is generally in the open and involves contact with only the driver, Inta-lock Locksmiths’ team are taking no chances and the team are using PPE for every call out. As with calls to residential or business properties, and surfaces that have been touched during the repair will be cleaned thoroughly with antibacterial cleaner before the locksmith finishes.

However, Inta-lock Locksmiths’ safe opening and installation services are on hold until the government advice changes and working conditions return to something that we are more used to.

So, if you need the services of an emergency locksmith and you live in the Leicester area, give Inta-lock Locksmiths a call. We can be out to you in about an hour and will not put your personal safety at risk.c
