Fair Locksmith Pricing
Unlike most locksmiths First Response, Locksmiths Sheffield don’t charge call out charges and we don’t charge fixed costs for anything such as the famous unlocking charge.
What we do is offer a price over the telephone based on your description. If your happy with that one of our locksmiths will pop over in the agreed time frame and start your job. The only time this price will ever change is if the lock is out of the ordinary or is a lot more time consuming than what was described over the phone. For example if we are told that the lock is a simple euro cylinder and when we arrive it’s an high security cylinder with PAS24 handles we would obviously have to alter the price as the job has become a lot more time consuming. However this has only ever come up a handful of times and moreover our locksmiths will never ever start the job without your express permission.
We can also keep costs down on materials. As First Response Locksmith Sheffield do a lot of contract business where we can be changing 20, 30 locks in a day we have built up good relationships with both manufacturers and wholesalers. This allows us to get excellent savings on our materials bill, allowing us to pass on the savings to you.

Quality of Materials We Use
At First Response, Locksmiths Sheffield we have come across some terrible locks that have been fitted over the years. We have seen a night latch on a UPVC door and we have seen sash jammers fitted the wrong way round, we could go on. We tell people time and time again that their UPVC door with all its bolts and mechanism is only as secure as the cheapest cylinder from B&Q that they put the key in every day.
That’s why here at First Response Locksmith Sheffield our locksmiths will only ever fit the highest quality hardware. This applies to cylinders, Mortice locks, secondary products and everything else. The reasons for this are twofold:
If we fitted low quality cheap locks we could not sleep at night, knowing your home or business was not secure. We stills see way too many so called professional UPVC companies fitting doors with bog standard off the shelf cylinders in them.
After all the hoo haa on the TV over this we were hoping this would change but it hasn’t. In life cheap doesn’t always equal bad, but in the world of a locksmith it does. We will only ever fit the best available hardware available. We will never compromise on the quality of the products we fit, ever if that means us missing out on business.
- By only fitting the highest quality hardware, in accordance with manufacturer’s guidelines our locksmiths save on call backs for problems. We very rarely have to revisit our work, if ever. This is due to the fact that everything is of the highest quality ( we also like to think our workmanship plays a small part as well)
Here at First Response Locksmith Sheffield not only do we like reliable hardware we like to be reliable ourselves. One thing we hear a lot is people complaining about calling a locksmith and have then been standing around waiting for them.
We have taken this on board. When you call us be this 2am or 2pm we will give you an estimated time of arrival. We work this out by using a programme on our tablets that takes into account traffic and diversions etc. We will then double check this with the sat nav. This means that if we say 30 minutes our locksmith will be with you within 30 minutes. Not an hour.
We are so confident with this we offer a guarantee, that if we aren’t with you within the agreed time frame we will work for free. So that means you will only pay for the lock and not the locksmith.
So if you need a locksmith and want to be sure that who you call turns up get in touch with First Response Locksmith Sheffield today.
A little about the locksmiths we keep talking about
Here’s a little fact I bet you didn’t know. In the UK there is no formal locksmith qualification. Here’s another, in the UK there is no mandatory body regulating locksmiths.
This is a little shocking to some people, considering the skills and tools a locksmith has access to, I am one of these people.
In fact there are 5 day courses up and down the country where anyone can go along and learn the basics of what a locksmith does. This is not too good as these folk can then just go out and start their own business. They cannot possible have built up all the skills they need in 5 days. I’ve been at it for 14 years and I haven’t.
The only people that suffer are you and them. You as it’s your locks or door or window or that gets damaged when all you wanted was a new lock. Them because they have spent thousands on the course and even more on the tools as they have been told that they can do a short course then make a living, they can’t and they won’t.
Here at First Response Locksmiths Sheffield we worked in the family business from an early age. We were always at work helping any way we could. So there was a pretty obvious career choice when we left school and off to work we went.
Locksmithing is one of those jobs where it is constantly evolving, from new locks coming on to the market to new tools being designed to open them. You must always keep learning or you will be left behind. That’s why here at First Response Locksmiths Sheffield we invest in ourselves by constant training and invest in equipment and tools. This ensures that our locksmiths are always ahead of the curve and we are always up to speed.
So we hope you have found what you were looking for and if you haven’t please feel free to contact us where one of our time served expert locksmiths will be happy to go through the options with you.
