Paul Digard

Arrived less than 30 minutes after the call, sorted the problem for now and gave advice on a permanent fix with the offer of further help if needed. Thanks very much!

Amazing and fast service, after struggling to get my key situation sorted for 8 weeks Pentland Locksmith sorted it within a few days. Very good and keeping customers update and made an effort to go above and beyond. Highly recommended this company.

I called Pentland Locksmiths as my door was stuck closed with the latch no longer retracting, and there seemed to be no way for me to get it back open again despite my DIY efforts. Chris arrived quickly after my call and opened the door in no time, then identified the gearbox was faulty. Fortunately, he had a replacement gearbox with him and was able to quickly resolve the issue for me there and then. Great service and would highly recommend!

How Do I Know I'm Picking The Right Locksmith in Musselburgh?

There are a number of questions a genuine Musselburgh Locksmith will get asked on a regular basis from all types of customers.

Here are a few examples:

Question; How much does it cost for a locksmith in Musselburgh?


Of course, that depends on whether or not you get a trusted local locksmith like Pentland locksmiths or a national company that uses unskilled contractors to do their work. The quick answer is that if you get a call center answering the phone then you have reached a national company and they will charge you three times more than a genuine local trusted Musselburgh locksmith service like Pentland Locksmiths. Always ask if they are local and whereabouts do they live. And feel free to ask for the locksmith by name. When you call Pentland Locksmiths you will get Chris at the other end of the phone.

Question: What does it cost to get a locksmith in Musselburgh to unlock a house?


Well, it’s pretty much the same answer as above. Opening doors when customers are locked out can be pretty technical depending on the lock on each door. Most local trusted Musselburgh locksmiths will charge you between £65 – £85 to gain access to your home with parts additional. National companies will charge you in excess of £130 a first hour then an extra £60 per half hour and so on plus VAT and then parts. So you can see the difference when you add up the cost between a local locksmith like Pentland Locksmiths Services and a National Company.
