Locksmiths are still open for business in Peterborough
The coronavirus pandemic may have closed down large parts of the UK economy, but some important industries are still running, including locksmiths. Mobile locksmiths, such as Inta-lock Locksmiths in Peterborough, are working around the clock to ensure that homes, businesses and vehicles remain safe and secure.
While the NHS and care sector have – rightly – gained most of the publicity for working through the COVID-19 pandemic to continue to provide care to the population, sometimes at risk to their own safety, others are also doing vital work at this time. One of those sectors is locksmiths: just because the country is on lockdown, it doesn’t stop locks breaking or jamming. It is also one of those things you can’t put off until the lockdown is over – you cannot leave your house, business or vehicle unsecure. So, while many locksmith shops are shut, mobile locksmiths are still available, often 24 hours a day.
However, locksmiths – including those at Inta-lock Locksmiths in Peterborough – are taking all the extra precautions they can to ensure that they and their customers remain as safe as possible.
For example, at Inta-lock Locksmiths, all professionals that go out to customer’s homes or business premises wear personal protective equipment (PPE) such as surgical gloves, shoe covers and face masks. These are also replaced before visiting the next client to avoid any risk of cross-contamination.
Our professionals also using hand sanitizer and will clean any locks, door handles etc that have been touched in the completion of the job.
In addition, our professionals also practice social distancing, so will stay at least two metres away from customers at all practical times.
The same is true for Inta-lock Locksmiths’ team of auto locksmiths. While social distancing may be easier when working on a vehicle, they still wear PPE and clean down any surfaces that have been touched during the repair process with disinfectant before the customer takes back their vehicle.
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. If necessary, we will be happy to change an appointment time if this is the case.
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 – whenever that may be.
So, if you need the services of an emergency locksmith you can be sure that there will be locksmiths ready to help, whatever the time of day or night. If you live in the Peterborough 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 while we fix your lock problem.
