Don’t get Scammed – Use a Master Locksmith

There has been an increase in property break ins over the last year.  So much so that the North Shore Local Area Command has set up a strikeforce to investigate the thefts.

If you have recently moved into a new house it is a good idea to have your locks changed.  You never know who has had access to your home before you moved in. This is also the same for commercial premises.  A few years ago a number of commercial premises were broken into after they opened.  Several tradespeople had access to their keys during the fitout process – so a number of people had a chance to copy the keys.

Use a Master Locksmith

Earlier this year featured an article about unqualified locksmiths fleecing home owners and tenants out of cash by posing as experienced locksmiths.  They were offering services by untrained staff.   These unscrupulous people were relying on people being desperate to get back into their homes after being locked out.  They got back into their homes but their locks were ruined.

For nearly 30 years, Alert Locks and Security have been servicing Lane Cove and North Sydney. It’s a family run business that has grown and grown.  The Managing Director is Vince Mico who is a member of the Master Locksmiths of Australia. Being a family owned business, Alert Locks and Security can offer you prompt and personalised service.   Alert knows Lane Cove very well, Vince and his wife raised their children in Lane Cove.

From the testimonial below on ITC Lane Cove Chat page you can see they are well respected in the community.
