The Best 10 Keys & Locksmiths in Port Phillipia are a place I’ve long thought to be haunted with ghosts of the past. I think it was when I drove past one of those ‘for sale’ signs that said so much about what it was about that made it an attraction. It didn’t look like much of a fixer upper, it looked more like the place you’d park your car on a Sunday after a long day at work, right? It was the perfect place to leave your keys behind and not worry about them getting stolen or lost.
I realised that maybe this was why we weren’t having any more break-ins in our home:
So, it was then that I realised that maybe this was why we weren’t having any more break-ins in our home or at our business. When I parked my car there were no signs, no door handles – no hint as to why someone had targeted this place. But when I got out of my car, the door handle was gone. So was the key. This was followed by the fact that all the locks in the house and office were either broken, rusted, bent or just broken.
Then I went to visit the local police station, because I wanted to complain about the lack of security. I asked the clerk if they could find a locksmith in the area who specialized in car security. No one was available that evening, nor was anyone else that I could think of in the area. I went home, made up my mind and called Bob, the owner of Bob’s Garage Door Services. He came over to my house and asked me why I was there.
I told him I was going to check out the situation with the police:
I told him I was going to check out the situation with the police. He asked me what company I worked locksmith st kilda and I told him. He looked at me and said “port Macau”. That’s the name of the largest port in the world, so it should come as no surprise that the Bob’s Garage Door Services is located there.
The next day I went back to Bob’s and had a chat with him. He told me that he had serviced several businesses in the area. He didn’t have a partner yet, but he had several clients that he was making money with. I asked him how long he had been working with the port. He replied, “since 1980”.
That’s a pretty impressive run for a young guy. He told me that he had retired a few years ago, but he still worked every day as a busy consultant. He was still doing contract work for big corporations, helping them secure the port. He was happy to share the secrets of his success with me. What I learned was the Bob’s Garage Door Services have several different styles of deadbolts, but mostly use the same equipment.
Bob’s deadbolts were set up in such a way:
Bob’s deadbolts were set up in such a way that you could activate and deactivate from either side. The keyhole would be on the left side while the strike plate would be on the right. Once you had the correct code, the locksmith could open your door using either the key or the debit/credit card provided. The strike plate then locked itself in place to ensure that nobody tried to get into the garage.
Bob told me that he used a local company called Keysco to install the equipment that was used by his deadbolts. He told me they charged him only $25 a day for maintenance and servicing. That’s cheap enough when compared to the other locksmiths I’ve dealt with over the years. As long as you’re dealing with a good company with good people, you should be in safe hands.
