MLA sets the standard with regards
to locksmithing charges

The Master Locksmiths Association (MLA) is pleased to see the recent upholding
of the prosecution of a locksmith for overcharging despite going to appeal.

Renowned for setting and promoting the standards in the locksmithing industry,
the MLA licenses its locksmiths by implementing stringent controls such as CRB
checks,  the  need  for  a  trained  locksmith  to  be  employed  as  well  as  regular
inspections.   MLA    approved    companies    sign  up  to  a  code   of conduct    which
stipulates that a customer has to be given full information on all the costs of the
work being undertaken. Should anything change during the job which will risk a
change to those costs then this should be explained in full to the customer and
agreed before the work progresses. The MLA also offers members of the public
an  arbitration  service   for anyone    who   isn’t happy   with  the   level of  service
received from an MLA approved company.

For  peace  of  mind  the  recommendation  is  to  ensure  that  for  any  locksmithing
needs  an  MLA approved company is  used. Your  local MLA  licensed  locksmith
can found via the MLA website (www.locksmiths.co.uk) or by ringing head office
on 0800 783 1498.
