ITCC’s locksmith Herne Hill has worked in this area for many years, and loves its location, nestled between beautiful, leafy Dulwich Village and noisy, edgy Brixton. Herne Hill has a lively community of about 12,000 people and is sought after as a place to live. It has a wide range of shops, bars, restaurants, parks and open spaces. It even has its own lido, Brockwell Park, for outdoor swimming in the summer months. It’s a popular area, of course, as the bus and rail connections take you to central London in only 10 minutes and it’s only four miles from Charing Cross. Unfortunately, Herne Hill is a burglary hotspot, with 41.8 burglary insurance claims per thousand people. Kevin Pratt, from the website Moneysupermarket.com says: “Thieves often target areas with wealthy residents and desirable properties where the rewards are potentially greater or quieter areas where they think there is less risk of being caught red-handed. But just because somewhere is named a claim hotspot, it doesn’t actually mean the area in question is not a nice place to live.”
It’s certainly the case that we are more likely to be burgled during the hours of 10am and 3pm, when we’re at work. Burglars aren’t that keen on breaking in to our houses when we’re at home!
This makes it all the more important that we do all we can to ensure that our homes are as safe as they can be. Our locksmith Herne Hill is known for the free and impartial advice that he is willing to share with customers. He uses his many years of experience to make your home or office a more secure place. Take these Three Key Tips for starters:
- Did you know that if you don’t have the correct style of locks on your windows and doors and then you’re burgled, the insurance company probably won’t pay out? Your locksmith Herne Hill can confirm whether or not your locks are up to scratch, and will advise you about replacements if necessary.
- Think, too, about an alarm system. Don’t bother fitting a dummy box – burglars will know if it’s a fake! A quality locksmith like ITCC’s local locksmith in SE24 will make sure that all wires are hidden, to prevent a burglar from cutting through to disconnect them. On the subject of burglar alarms: if you have a faulty alarm, ask the locksmith Herne Hill to fix it for you, then tell your neighbours. If they don’t know it’s working properly, they’ll just assume it’s a false alarm next time it goes off.
- Make it difficult for intruders to sneak around the back of your house, where they are more likely to get in without being seen. Erect a fence or gate at the side of the house, and ask ITCC’s locksmith Herne Hill to supply you with a good, strong padlock to secure it.
So don’t put it off any longer….try the locksmith in SE24 that residents recommend.
