Rekeying Vs Lock Change

When it comes to deciding if you need to rekey your home or business or change the locks these are some points to consider.

The term rekeying simply means that the pins and springs in the lock cylinder are replaced with new pins and springs that work with a new key.

  • This is often a cheaper option for those whose locks are still in good working condition and simply want the comfort of knowing any pervious tenants or owners can’t access the property or business with their key.
  • Clients can choose to have their locks rekeyed to the one key making it more convenient.

AC Locksmiths Brisbane have done thousands of rekey jobs on both residential and commercial properties. We generally recommend this service for those who have purchased a new property or business and have moved into a new rental or simply want the convenience of having their multitude of keys put onto the one key.

Whatever the situation we will always recommend the most cost effective and proactive solution to your situation.
