Even with all the new access control technology, locksmith services are still very much a hands-on, mechanical trade. Very often we are called in to remove the “guts” of a locking mechanism for a variety of reasons.
Rekeying services are the most frequent service that we provide as locksmiths. There are many apartment rentals and condominium complexes that require the rekeying of locks immediately when the tenant moves out.
Commercial buildings also require lock rekeying periodically as tenants move out or the building is sold. Commercial lock rekeying can be complicated, as in the case of master key systems or restricted keyways. We are the preferred locksmith service in the Manchester area for realtors and property management companies like Brady Sullivan and Evergreen Management.
Homeowners also find themselves in need of rekeying services. Sometimes a resident moves out without returning the key. Broken keys render the locksets useless. Lost keys are the most common reason for rekeying service calls for homeowners – and often not at convenient times of the day. When it comes to a home lockout, Goffstown Lock and Key is available 24 hours a day to help homeowners get back into their home.
During that service call, we will recommend rekeying the locksets rather than replacing them. It’s a lot cheaper to re-key an existing lock than to buy a whole new set. Since were already there, why not have us configure all of the locksets and deadbolts on the same service call? Our residential customers love the convenience of having only one key to access all of their exterior doors!
