The National Network of Local Locksmiths directory (NNLL) has been created to advertise genuine local locksmith firms throughout the UK in a locksmith directory free from national franchises and call centres.
I hope it can be used by customers searching for their nearest locksmith but also by locksmiths to recommend other trusted members in the directory when work cannot be covered.
If locksmiths can continue to steer customers in the direction of other reputable tradesmen we can ensure that national firms are starved out of the industry. Everyone benefits!
Why No Nationals?
National locksmith firms have become a plague in the locksmith industry, regularly misleading and over charging customers, in more serious cases I would say scamming! These large organisations will never carry the same values as genuine local locksmith firms and are out for all they can get. The sooner we erradicate them from the equation the customers will receive better services at the proper going rate and we shall take back the local work for ourselves.
How To Add Your Business
If you're looking to join the NNLL you can click on the tab above labelled 'Membership' which will redirect you to the Membership area. Remember it's completely FREE so there's nothing to lose. The more good local locksmiths we get on board the better!
How The Directory Works
What sets the NNLL apart from the other locksmith organisations?
This one is FREE for all genuine local locksmith firms in the United Kingdom.
There are no national locksmith firms or franchises, only local locksmith shops, mobile locksmiths and small family businesses.
The directory database is manually updated so that every locksmiths detail can be checked and verified before publication. This prevents spam and SEO firms attempting to take advantage of the directory. The last thing I want is a list of locksmiths that are no longer trading.
Making It Work For Locksmiths
An organisation such as NNLL is only as good as it's members.
First and foremost is to ensure that all locksmith work undertaken is to the highest possible standard, for both our own business and the sake of anyone that recommends you as a reliable locksmith.
In the unfortunate event that a locksmith is unable to cover a particular job or does not travel to that part of the country it's often difficult to know who to recommend. With an online network of local locksmiths you can pick and choose with whom you share your clients and help them find someone that isn't going to rip them off and provide a high qulaity service. There is nothing worse than turning away work knowing that your customer could potentially call a national firm.
This is of utmost importance when dealing with regular customers such as letting agents and maintenance firms who rely on your expertise and recommendations.
Door Repairs Pages
I have had a lot of requests from members to add a section for door repair firms. I think this is a great idea and will be working over the next few weeks to put something in place to cater for this.
