Gladesville is located 10 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government areas of the City of Ryde and the Municipality of Hunters Hill. Gladesville enjoys vast Parramatta River views and has numerous beautiful riverside parks.
We were recently called by a customer who had parked their car at Ryde Aquatic Centre on Victoria Road in Gladesville, while taking their kids for a swim. Unfortunately, between getting out of the car, dressing and undressing their kids and swimming, our customer managed to lock their keys inside their car!
Never fear, after receiving a call from our distressed customer, we had one of our experienced locksmiths with them and the car open within 15 minutes! This is an example of why we receive so many good reviews from our customers – we pride ourselves on providing a rapid response, professional service and real value and talking the worry out of a situation like this.
Gladesville has many beautiful bays, including Glades Bay, and an abundance of rowing clubs and boatsheds, including Sydney Grammar Boatshed and Scots College Boatshed. These facilities are typically located in quiet areas where opportunities for burglary and other anti-social behaviour is rife.
At Britlock Locksmiths, we specialise in marine security and have a number of customers who own motor-cruisers, yachts and boatsheds on the Parramatta River. Britlock Locksmiths’ mobile workshops are fully stocked with a wide range of marine grade stainless padlocks and our experienced locksmiths can also supply and install locks and CCTV or alarm equipment at any time of the day or night.
Gladesville is rapidly developing, with new unit blocks popping up everywhere, particularly along Victoria Road. The face of the suburb is changing as a new population moves into the area. Notwithstanding that many of the newer developments are secure apartment blocks, it is still important to be proactive with your security.
These days, in most new unit blocks, the front door is generally provided with only a single lever set. When moving into a new place, we would recommend that you contact Britlock Locksmiths and have a chat with one of our experienced locksmiths about re-keying your existing lock and possibly fitting an additional lock to the front door.
Gladesville has an abundance of quality shops and restaurants, including Mercato e Cucina, Beacon Lighting and BWS. We are often called to break-ins which have the potential to significantly impact on small businesses.
Our experienced and licensed locksmiths can advise on security to shops and restaurants, including restricted key systems, CCTV and alarms. All of these are simple measures which can improve the security of a business premises.
Britlock Locksmiths only employ experienced and licensed locksmiths. We would be rich if we made a dollar every time we were called to remedy the work of an inexperienced or unqualified locksmith.
