Your Smartlox Guarantee

As a genuine local locksmith, our response times and prices cannot be matched by any national competitor advertising within Edinburgh and the Lothians.

You’ve probably searched online for a 24hr emergency locksmith or called around a few companies and got through to call center operators that gave you an unclear or expensive quotation. These companies are best avoided as they rarely have your best interest at heart and will be charging a premium for their middleman services for locksmiths and safe opening in Edinburgh.

Nowadays the problem with finding a reliable service within the Lothians is finding one that is actually based here and trustworthy. Choosing a reputable family owned companyin Edinburgh is going to be your best option and Steve at Smartlox is just the man you are looking for!

Steve Smith is a master technician with over 30 years experience in the locksmithing and safe opening business and offers a wide range of security services for both domestic and commercial clients. Since establishing Smartlox in 2000, Steve has worked with some of the most regarded companies in Edinburgh including Ryden property consultants and The Bank of Scotland.

Our Values

Over the years Steve and his team have had to deal with every emergency scenario you could imagine. Whether you have a broken key stuck in a lock or you require all Yale or mortice locks in your property changed, we treat each customer with 100% respect and commitment no matter what the job involves.

At Smartlox we understand the trust that our customers place in our services. We also recognise the stress and worry of often having to call a emergency locksmith in the first place. This is why we always provide clear information and support to our customers, from your initial call to the successful completion of your job. Additionally, all work completed by Smartlox comes with a full 1-year guarantee for your peace of mind.

Before you hire the services of anyone, check whether the company is registered, licensed and insured. This is one way of discovering whether you are hiring credible professionals. Another option is to check online reviews and testimonials from previous customers.

Call us anytime day or night

While you may hire a locksmith for standard services every once in a while, there are times when you may find that you’ve locked yourself out of your home or maybe you’ve misplaced or lost your keys and can’t get into your home or commercial space. It’s at times such as these that you need the services of a lockout expert like Smartlox.

Though there are a number of locksmiths in Edinburgh, not all of them provide a true 24 hour, 7 days a week service, this can be an issue if you’re having problems at an odd hour of the day or require help on a bank holiday. We at Smartlox understand this and provide seamless solutions regardless of what time of the day or night you call us. Our priority is always to give you access to your property with the minimum of inconvenience to you and damage to your property. As standard, our technician’s aim is to always complete work in a non-destructive manner on all locks, doors and windows.

Smartlox’s target response time is 30 minutes within the city and a guaranteed response time of 60 minutes throughout the wider Lothian area.

uPVC door lock expert

As well as providing traditional services you would expect such as lock fitting, opening and replacements, Smartlox are also experienced uPVC specialists that can unjam and repair faulty uPVC door and window locks and replace them if necessary.

uPVC locks are complicated parts that can suffer from numerous problems varying from poor alignment to broken metal fragments jamming the door locked.

The cost of a uPVC door service is far cheaper than the cost of a door repair consisting of a replacement locking unit, so it is important to give our technicians a call and get the door re-adjusted and working smoothly again before it breaks. It is one of those things that our customers usually just ‘live with’ but in our experience the locks tend to break at the most inconvenient times leaving the owners with the problem of having it repaired, however, we operate a 24h locksmith service so we are always there for you.

We also stock a wide range of anti-snap and high security door locks such as the popular Cisa Astral range, for higher security premises and vulnerable properties in Edinburgh.

Anything not listed here or you’re unsure about what your options are then please feel free to call Steve who will be able to offer further advice or assistance.
