Once one of the industrial behemoths that propelled England into prosperity, Sheffield is quickly becoming one of its biggest cultural hubs. From its days of famous steel and might factories, the spaces that once housed industrial factories are now filled with art galleries, museums and theatres. Even the main hall in the city centre works a second job as a comedy club.
As Sheffield grows into its new personality, it has begun to attract more visitors and people looking to relocate then ever before. Factories have been turned into apartments, and old junkyards have been levelled and replaced with townhouses across the city. This urbanisation, paired with the beautiful parks and gardens scattered around the city, is helping to bring this once industrious area into a new age of wealth and class.
As more people move to Sheffield, the growing demand for skilled local services is rising too. Locksmiths, in particular, have become hard to find and in short supply. This has lead to a rise in prices and a number of companies who are taking advantage of the desperation of its customers.
We have all done it, left the keys in the door, dropped them while running or left them at the office, which is now closed for the weekend. When this happens, you don't want to be exploited and left to pay through the nose for a locksmith.
That's where we come in. Here at Quick Locks 24/7, we have had enough with overpriced handymen and locksmiths, charging customers hundreds just for a call out. We have built up a highly skilled team of locksmiths in Sheffield. Each and every one of them has a wealth of experience and is ready to help when you are left out in the cold.
We don't believe in call out charges, and we aim to be with you as quickly as humanly possible. In fact, the average response time for one of our locksmiths in Sheffield is just 20 minutes!

Benefits of Using Quick Locks 24/7 Sheffield
We are an extremely busy nation. Most of us work tight schedules and fast-paced lives. This can mean that a small issue, such as a lost key, can have a big impact on our lives.
It is as easy as putting the key down at work or forgetting to zip a pocket up. The worst thing is that most of us won't even realise we have lost our keys until we come to use them later on. This means it is often impossible to pinpoint the exact moment that we lost them.
Often, it is simply more cost-effective to arrange for a locksmith to open the locked door. This can allow us to get to work or to pick the kids up.
The benefits to using a locksmith are numerous, here are some of the biggest:
24-hour Emergency Service
Stuck in a thunderstorm? Locked out on your wedding day? Car keys inside and the kids need picking up? When the situation is desperate, and you need a quick turn around time, no matter what time of day, you need a service like ours. We provide a 24/7 service to all of our customers, meaning a Sheffield locksmith can be with you in a quick and timely manner.
We know how easy it is to lose your keys, it can happen at any time..., and it does. When it does, make sure you are prepared, make sure you call Quick Locks 24/7.
Unfortunately, we never seem to lose our keys on a day off, right? It always seems to be when we are already running late and need to be somewhere.
That is why one of our missions as a business is to provide a lightning-fast service that is better than any of our competitors. With the experience our team has, your door locks will be changed quickly and efficiently, and security upgrades will be installed in a time-frame that you will be more than happy with.
We utilise this approach to every single incident. No matter how big the job, or how small, we aim to be there as soon as physically possible. We don't want you to have to wait for upwards of 6 hours without any knowledge of an exact time like many of our competitors. Our mission is to be better with our response time under 30 minutes in the majority of cases.
Our Sheffield locksmith service will always be affordable and competitively priced compared to the competition. Although the cost will always depend on the depth of the job and all the details and parts involved, we will always aim to be the cheapest and will even provide a free quote, so you aren't left in the dark.
Many of the other locksmith services in Sheffield charge for a callout, that means they are charging you before they have even started any work. We don't use a callout charge model, and this helps us to keep our prices as low as they are. We can do this because the only locksmiths we use, follow the same motto and mission and are vetted to make sure that they are reputable and reliable.
Every Sheffield locksmith on our team hates the common misconception that as a trade, we are out to take advantage of your situation and to profit heavily from it. When you are at your most vulnerable, this is the last thing we want, and we work hard every day to prove that we are here to help, not to profit on your mistakes.
As well as our focus on speed and affordability, we also strongly believe in providing a service based on trust. Our team understands that when you need professional locksmith services, such as 24-hour emergency callouts then you will want the following:
- Industry-leading response times so that you spend less time worrying about your security.
- Incredible value for money with no call out charge and competitive pricing.

Emergency Locksmith Services
Sometimes, you need a locksmith for a silly reason. You left your keys in the door or at work. Sometimes, however, the situation is an emergency.

When the situation is an emergency like this, we pride ourselves on our lightning-quick response times.

Installing a Master Lock
With the myriad of new data protection laws being introduced up and down the country, you may have new security needs for keeping your data secure. Many businesses come to us, asking for a solution to this problem, and our answer? A master lock system.
A master lock system allows you to have a key that can open every single room in your property. You will also have individual keys for every single lock so that you can restrict access and give the keys to the necessary staff. This means that they only have access to a certain area, while you have access to every area with a single key.
Another common service that we regularly provide to our customers is a security survey. In a security survey, one of our locksmiths will be able to tell you if you have any weak points that may be exploited to give strangers access to your building. We will provide a report as well as recommendations for what we suggest you install to combat the problem.
If you own a business, or you have a household with children or elderly residents, this is a great way to ensure their security.
British Standard Locks
There are a range of different types of standards used to rate British locks, here are the most common and the ones you'll find most useful;
- BS3621 – This covers mortise cylinder rim locks that use keys for entrance and exit on both sides if up to standard these locks are safe unless the assailant has the key.
- Bs8621 – This covers locks that use a key on the outside but can be unlocked on the inside without a key, maybe with a thumb tab. Usually found in flat and apartment buildings to ensure everyone can escape in the case of an emergency.
- BS10261 – This covers locks that can only be locked from the outside, these locks can be opened from the inside without a key, but this function can be removed.
All of the locks we supply are in line with British Standards, so this means you can rest easy knowing that when we replace your lock, your insurance is still going to cover you.
How Much do Locksmiths Charge in the UK?
The costs for a locksmith in the UK vary massively from area to area and from business to business. Unfortunately, there are a number of locksmith companies that take advantage of their customers when they are in need.
