Local Heroes and Master Locksmith Association Partnership

Local Heroes partners with Master Locksmiths Association

Posted on 3/26/2018

Local Heroes is proud to announce that we have signed an ongoing partnership with the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA), the largest and longest established locksmiths association in the UK.

The partnership means that more MLA members will join the Local Heroes platform, offering customers even more reassurance that locksmiths have been trained and vetted and are of the highest quality.

Local Heroes will also consult with the MLA on industry standards. Whilst most trades Local Heroes offers have strict industry standards set by governing bodies – for example all heating engineers must be Gas Safe registered – locksmiths do not have an equivalent governing body or essential qualifications. Unfortunately, this does mean that some unverified and unqualified locksmiths can operate in the UK.

“The partnership with Local Heroes means that the locksmith services we offer are held to a high standard of work which gives our customers the highest possible level of quality and assurance”

To minimise the risk of this, the MLA was set up as a not-for-profit organisation to set strict standards of conduct within locksmithing. They also carry out regular inspections of its members’ work and provide training to ensure its members remain up to date with the latest industry developments.

Partnering with the MLA will give our customers extra peace of mind that the locksmiths on our platform will be competent and trustworthy.

Mat Moakes, Director of Local Heroes, commented: “The partnership with Local Heroes means that the locksmith services we offer are held to a high standard of work which, when combined with the British Gas Guarantee, gives our customers the highest possible level of quality and assurance.”

“With over 50 years of experience vetting and inspecting locksmiths, the MLA really improves the quality of our locksmith offering and we could not be happier to work with the team at the MLA.”

Sarwjit Sambhi, Managing Director of UK Home at British Gas, says the partnership is an important step in expanding Local Heroes into new areas.

Partnerships with authorities such as the MLA ensure Local Heroes can continue to maintain and grow its reputation in trades and industries not traditionally associated with British Gas.
