So you finally purchase the property you’ve dreamed of. What next? Being the most likely valuable asset, naturally you’d probably look for insurance to look after your belongings. That is, getting insurance to protect your house in case of fire etc. When people sign up for house insurance, some will forget about protecting their content in their house. Well, let us rephrase, not putting enough emphasis on content insurance. And for those who takes both home and content insurance – there is more you can do to further protect their house content. What is it you may ask? Well, read on…
One thing you can do is upgrading the security at your house. This post is was inspired by Clint, a local locksmith in Perth who specialise in home security by providing high quality locks for your beloved house. Clint has been a member of APHC within the first week of our opening. So it is only natural to give him credit when credit is due. Search for the term locksmith Perth on the internet and most likely than not you will find him. Trading as Power Lock and Security, Clint has become a popular face whose service is valuable to the Perth community. From helping people gaining entry back into their property to installing various types of lock to help secure your house from unwanted intruders.
According to Clint (who is a proud home owner himself), by investing in your local locksmith to install high quality locks in your house will not only protect it and reduce your premium amount; but it will also add value to your property. Just like many things in life, you get what you paid for. By trying to save money and getting cheap locks will inevitably cost you more in the long run.
Many would probably argue that they can install or even repair the locks themselves. But we strongly suggest against this. Unless of course if you hold a locksmith license. Doing a DIY job in installing locks or other security things might have negative consequences. So it is best to leave it to the professionals. As the primary reason to have a licensed locksmith to install and/or repair your locks is to protect your property and the content in it, then choosing one that is licensed only makes proper sense. Using unlicensed technicians, or doing it yourself – especially when working with electrical locking systems may compromise or even void your right to claim insurance in case something undesirable happens.
So the moral of this post is to invest, invest and invest some more! After all, your house is your most valuable asset. So it is well worth the investment, we absolutely don’t have any hesitation to recommend all homeowners to invest in a professional locksmith!
