Rain, hail, or virus: our emergency auto locksmiths are still open!

Sales Galmier - Wednesday, March 18, 2020


There’s a lot of talk right now about COVID-19, and what that means for businesses. Will they be able to continue operating? Will they even be allowed to continue operating?

And most importantly, does this mean that ‘emergency’ businesses like plumbers, sparkies and locksmiths will be around to help out if an emergency arises at the worst possible time?

Don’t worry, there’s good news: our emergency auto locksmiths are still open for business, and we plan on continuing to work throughout the crises (with some extra precautions, of course!)

Galmier’s emergency auto locksmith service will CONTINUE to operate

We here at Galmier Locksmiths pride ourselves on our emergency locksmith services. Call us at any time between 9am to 5pm or After hours emergency 5 - 10:30pm, and we’ll do our utmost to get you back on the road with our rapid-response service.

This doesn’t just apply on weekdays, either - our emergency locksmith is available on weekends and public holidays as well.

We’re committed to providing rapid-response emergency auto locksmith service all Melbourne-round, all year - after all, it isn’t like car key, lock and ignition emergencies stop once it hits 5pm.

And we’ll continue to uphold this commitment for as long as it is safe to do so.

Choose an auto locksmith that bucks the trend

One of the things that sets us apart from other auto locksmiths in Melbourne? We respect you and your property. Our team takes great pride in our workmanship, as well as our cleanliness.

As a mobile job, auto locksmiths spend a lot of time on the road.

Additionally, the work itself can occasionally be dirty. Our auto locksmiths work with many mechanics, and some of our callers haven’t washed their cars for a long time!

A typical day on the road brings us into contact with all sorts of unclean surfaces - that’s why we take great care to thoroughly wash our hands between jobs.

Given the current circumstances, we’re going to be continuing these measures, and plan on taking them to the next level!

Our car locksmiths are taking extra precautions to keep you safe

We totally understand your concerns - that’s why we’re taking extra steps to ensure your health and wellbeing.

For starters, we’re lucky enough to have a pretty good supply of hand sanitiser back at Galmier HQ, which we plan on using to clean our hands while we’re out on the road, and to clean any new keys we hand over.

We’ll also be adding latex gloves to our uniform to ensure that we don’t accidentally pick anything up.

Not only that, but we’ve also taken the advice of prominent health officials and have stopped handshakes. A polite smile and greeting goes a long way in these circumstances!

Finally, our team can take payment by card on-the-spot and can send out invoices using email. No money or physical paper needs to change hands, helping keep you safe.

We aren’t just auto locksmiths, either

Maybe you’ve been placed under quarantine. Alternatively, your workplace is requesting that you work from home for the foreseeable future.

Either way, you aren’t likely to run into lock, key and ignition problems with your car anytime soon since you’ll be spending most of your time at home!

All of a sudden, you’re much more likely to run into problems with your house keys and locks, rather than your car.

Good news: the principles that underlie your home locks are the same as the ones that your car uses. Thus, our auto locksmiths can also be relied upon if you accidentally lock yourself out after you head down to the local shops to stock up on supplies.

Some of the residential locksmith services we offer include:

  • Unlocking doors
  • Rekeying locks
  • Unjamming locks
  • Cutting replacements for lost or broken keys

Commercial locksmithing services

The decision to suspend operations is a tough one to make. As business owners ourselves, we sympathise.

We also sympathise with your concerns about how secure your business is. How do you know your premises are going to be safe if you’re forced to close for 2 weeks or more?

If you ask us, there’s never been a better time to upgrade your premises’ locking system.

Galmier also offers commercial locksmithing services for businesses throughout Bayside, designing and installing master key systems throughout your building.

Our emergency auto locksmiths in Bayside operate rain, hail or shine

Our work doesn’t end when the weather turns foul, or when late hours won’t stop us - and nor will the city’s current landscape.

If you have us saved to your phone, you will be able to continue relying on our auto locksmiths throughout these trying times.

And if your regular locksmith has been forced to shut as a result of the current situation, we’re more than happy to step up and fill the void.

Toilet paper may be flying off the shelves and tinned food in short supply, but at least you won’t have to worry about being stranded without a key!
