FREE North London Home Insurance & Security Surveys
One of the keys to home invasion prevention is surveying the home for possible weaknesses. A home survey can assist you with not only identifying weak points at your business or home, but they can also advise you of the appropriate steps to take in fortifying the structure. Over a third of burglaries occur simply because of opportunity, but what our free survey would do is assess your property for the kind of weaknesses such as faulty latches, and outdated windows and doors, and overgrown shrubs.
When visiting the site, a few of the services we can provide your home if you decide to work with us, including the home survey, are related to our home security plans. These services and products include installing locks fitted to insurance standards, installing replacement and reinforcement for doors, fitting window locks, supplying and fitting out a space for safes, installing grills and bars on windows and doors, installing restricted key access, and installing an access control system and alarm. With our company, your property will not only receive a free assessment by one of our specialists but you can trust that our expertise will translate into providing you with the tools to secure your property.
Our team at Abbey Locks of North London can help you get your property in tip-top shape where security is concerned by providing you with a free, no obligation security survey that targets weak points in the property. If you are satisfied with our assessment, we can begin installing your security plan based on this survey and your budget. Call us today for a home survey that can assess your security needs.
Our expert security advice is totally FREE with no obligation. We do not charge for call-outs.

SECURITY TIPS: How To Protect Your North London Home From Thieves
North London is a beautiful, leafy place to live and we don’t want it spoilt by the small group of individuals who choose a life of crime. We make it our duty to protect our customers from those people who are hell-bent on breaking in and stealing from their homes.
Whilst no home can ever be 100% secure, there are a number of precautions you can take to defend your home and make it a more difficult target for those pesky thieves.
Here are a few tips on how to keep your North London home, safe and secure.
Locksmith Security Tip 1: Consider landscape for security by removing or pruning shrubs and bushes that have grown too high around walkways and windows.
Locksmith Security Tip 2: In places where there is a lot of shading or that is very dark in the evenings, consider installing lights that are set for a timer.
Locksmith Security Tip 3: When away from the building, consider installing a timer that will turn lights on or off, and if you want to give would-be intruders the illusion that someone is in the structure, consider setting this timer to a radio.
Locksmith Security Tip 4: Security doors that reinforce office and home doors can also be a way to prevent unlawful entries into the premises.
Locksmith Security Tip 5: Consider changing out old hinges and locks that can be easily tampered with and broken.
Locksmith Security Tip 6: Finally, secure all of your tools, as crowbars, chisels and screwdrivers are great for removing hinges, opening old doors, and popping (or breaking) locks.
Locksmith Security Tip 7: Don’t advertise the fact that you are away (or going away) on holiday on your social media channels. Yes, it’s great to tell people what you’re up to but there are lots of people who could potentially take advantage, especially if your profile is not just locked down to your friends.
