Oh no, I’ve locked myself out! Many of us have come across a scenario such as this, but what is the first action you do? Is it to try and gain entry via a window or even try brute force? Or is it to call a Locksmith Chelmsford?

Hopefully, you chose the last, because well… you could be facing huge risk to yourself and a huge bill if you decide to break in yourself! If you chose to call a locksmith you are one step in the right direction!

In this article, we will be exploring some of the reasons why you should call a locksmith before you do anything else, from risks to yourself to enhanced costs!

For those who think it is wise to break the door, this section is for you…

Making your own way in!

You have decided to make your own way in, the most common methods are going in through a window, or breaking in via the front/back door. Perhaps you have found a window that is open, usually a small window located at the back of the house, or perhaps an upstairs window. If you choose to attempt to enter in either of these ways you could be putting yourself at grave risk. By choosing an upstairs window you are choosing to enter the building at a height, which increases the chance of a fall. However, if you have chosen to enter the small window at the back of the house, you can quickly find yourself either stuck or breaking the window frame.

Now, both of these ways of entering are not suggested, nor is breaking your door. You should always call a local Locksmith Chelmsford!


Calling a local Locksmith Chelmsford!

Perhaps you still need a bit more persuasion to call a Locksmith Chelmsford, what if I was to tell you it’s not as expensive as you may think? A locksmith’s charge is usually just their call out charge, this is because 80% off all lockouts tend to be an unforced entry. This means the locksmith can gain entry without breaking anything, therefore reducing the amount you will need to replace to zero.

A call out charge depends on the time and day of which you call, with weekends and after dark being a higher amount. However, you would be expected to pay between £50 and £150, which is significantly lower than replacing both a door and lock!


So what is the benefit of calling a local locksmith?

Calling a locksmith Chelmsford is a going to be your best option if you are looking reliable, fast service! A locksmith that is not based in the area can time it takes for them to reach you. This is a time which you could be spent doing something you need to do. Some locksmiths also charge more if you are out of their area, where a local locksmith would not have that problem.

So what are you waiting for? Call your local locksmith today!

Buying a new motorcycle can be a daunting prospect, you have a lot to think about. The insurance, the cost of running and by far the biggest, how do I get it home. For most this is easy, jump on the bike and ride it back. However, there is an ever growing trend of buying bikes that are more than 4 hours ride away. This trend comes down to two things, rarity and cost.

You can find far better deals when dealing with the entirety of the UK, not just local to you. This is only increased with the rarity of the motorcycle you are trying to purchase. For instance, you may be looking for an older bike that is classed as a classic, there may be only 3 on sale in the whole of the UK.

This is where Motorcycle Transport Essex comes into play.

In this article, we will be looking into the top few things you need to know about motorcycle transport in your area.

How do you transport a motorcycle?

Transporting a motorcycle can be achieved in a number of ways, most use large vans such as Transit Vans or Luton’s. Others tend to use specially designed trailers.

When using a dedicated company they will have custom built harnesses and straps to ensure the safety of your bike. When you hand over your vehicle to a motorcycle transport expert they will lock your bike into place, this will ensure little to no movement.


Can I do it myself?

Of course, if you have a large van or trailer, there is no reason why you cannot. However, you should be advised that transporting your own vehicle without the correct safety harnesses can result in potential damage to your motorcycle.


How much does motorcycle transport Essex cost?

Like most services it usually comes down to hours, if your bike will take an hour to deliver, then the cost will be reduced significantly. Whereas if you planned to get a motorcycle transported from Scotland to Essex, the cost will increase due to the added hours.


DIY or Hire?
