OK so I’ve had quite a mad few days up in Hull visiting my girlfriend. If you’ve ever been to Hull you will know how easy it is to get lost in the city centre, but that’s only half the story… believe me it’s been quite an experience and I probably wouldn’t actually be writing on my blog if it wasn’t for a locksmith in Hull who got me (or us) out of a really tricky and sticky situation. Let me explain.
We decided that we would go out for the evening for a meal. There are loads of lovely places to eat in Hull – you can see some of them on the Visit Hull website – we opted for the Giuseppe’s Italian just in case you wondered – comes highly recommended. Anyway, before we left I decided to lock all the doors front and back using a small key that was placed on the mantelpiece – and on the front door I was playing with this cantilever type lock button. I am quite security conscious like that – probably like many blokes are – perhaps it’s OCD – little did I know that that small action was to lead to us having to call out an emergency locksmith in Hull later that evening.
Anyway, to cut this rather convoluted and long story a bit shorter, when we got back (after consuming the best part of two bottles of red Chianti) we tried to open the front door, but the security lock had slipped back into the chamber – from where I had been messing around with that cantilever thing. We had to call out a locksmith. Now, in my experience from living in other cities other than Hull, when you call out an emergency locksmith they tend to arrive, do the job and then give you an invoice for an unfeasible amount of money.
That wasn’t the case at all with Pix Locks Locksmith Hull – just a quick phone call and we were put through to a very friendly guy who diagnosed the locking issue over the telephone and was with us in 20 minutes – despite it being 11 o clock at night. When he arrived he explained that he is slightly different to other locksmiths in Hull, as he can usually quote over the telephone and be to most parts of the city within minutes.
Well, to cut this story even shorter, he took about 10 minutes to fix the lock, we paid him the very reasonable amount of money (under eighty quid) and he went on his way. Due to the excellent service he gave us I said I would give him a shout out and a link from my blog – so I’ve done that now and wish him all the best with his business.
In the unlikely event that you need a locksmith in Hull I really recommend the guy – visit his website and bookmark him for future reference for all your Hull locksmith needs. I know it’s unlikely but you never know! Rant over.
