Lockforce Receive Praise LIVE on RADIO 2

Who'd have thought that we could be recognised for our customer service LIVE on RADIO 2...?

Alan Ayers from Lockforce Colchester was recognised by Sara Cox on her early evening show after being nominated by a recent customer.

Alan received a call from a distressed lady who needed some help and support. The lady's father is an elderly man living on his own with the assistance from a visiting home carer. The carer was unable to gain entry and so Alan sped into action to attend and get the carer in and check that the ladys father was ok.

After gaining entry, changing and upgrading the lock for added security, Alan then took the time to call the lady and advise that everything was under control and her father was OK.


Great job Alan

How to Prevent Thieves From Stealing Your Dog at Home

 

We Brits have such a love affair with dogs. During lockdown especially, we shared a torrent of pictures and videos of dogs doing daft things to make us feel better. They somehow have a magical, calming effect.  Some 3.2 million households acquired a pet to ease the loneliness of lockdown. Adoptions and sales of dogs soared.

 

Pampering our dogs is our nation's obsession. It's industrialised and big money. We spend an average of £240 each month on them. With the pet boom of the pandemic came inflated prices and designer pooches sold on the black market. Dogs have become a commodity.

 

Puppy smugglers and opportunistic criminals saw the easy pickings to cash in on the demand and around 12 dogs are being stolen in the UK every day.

 

Brazen thieves lure and snatch pets at every possible opportunity - caravans, kennels, gardens, houses, cars, heaven forbidden, even whilst out walking and scooping up poop. And they are indiscriminate which human victims they target - breeders, celebrities, macho men, families, the elderly and the disabled. 

 

The key message from the Dog Theft Awareness Week 2021 is to be CAREFUL OUT THERE, as NO ONE IS SAFE and NO WHERE IS SAFE ANYMORE. 

 

The home and garden are the hot spots for pet theft.

 

52% of dogs are stolen from gardens and 19% of dogs are stolen in house burglaries.

 

Puppies adopted during lockdown might not have been home alone yet. Leaving them on their own when as we go back to our ‘new normal’ lives may well lead to separation anxiety. The howling and barking of a distressed dog could draw attention to would-be burglars.

 

The loss of a furry companion is so devastating. They are family. We need to do everything we can to protect our pets and keep them safe.

 

If your dog is left at home, securing your property and garden is a one way to reduce the risk of your dog being stolen.

 

There are some simple measures you can make to secure your home against any potential thieves:

 

·         Fit key-operated locks to all downstairs and easy-access windows

·         Lock all the doors and windows every time you leave the house

·         Keep ladders and tools locked away

·         Hide all keys out of sight

 

How secure is your home against burglars? 

 

Try to think like a burglar and identify where there are weak points in your home. Most burglars enter properties through unlocked front doors and windows, or where they can discretely gain access through poor quality locks.

 

Lockforce have been providing locksmith services across many parts of the UK and our experience shows that prevention is better than having to help a customer once it's too late.

 

You can't put the price on how good a dog is for our wellbeing. They love us unconditionally and they need our help. Now may be the time to check your home security and upgrade your locks to insurance-approved British Standards and modern technology to keep them safe. We can provide a full survey of your home and advise you how best to stop dognappers grabbing your four-legged companion from their home.
