Lock repair needed for S.J Quick and Sons, a respectable local builders who have sites all around the Mid to SW Cornwall and recently had an issue where persons unknown attempted to break into one of their site containers.
Luckily the attempt was unsuccessful and no items stolen but the damage and inconvenience was to prove costly. The reason nothing had been removed was more luck than anything else mainly due to a lack of knowledge by the thieves.
The business owners called us out and the first thing we had to do was to remove the broken lock and euro cylinder. The thieves had mangled the lock case and it was not re-usable. Once the lock case and the Euro cylinder were removed we could then send off and order a replacement for the next day.
Unfortunately, the replacement did not arrive for 48 hours so temporary security was put into place. Once the new lock arrived it was fitted straight away.
Because the replacement had slightly different dimensions, some additional work had to be done on the doors both to take the lock and to the hold where the bolt drops into. But this did not take too long and S.J Quick and Sons were soon back up and running as before.
As part of the service, some additional easy and in-expensive security improvements for them to put into place were suggested, in the hope that should this sort of attack occur again in the future, they will remain safe and secure.
