You know that dreadful sinking feeling you get when you reach home, frantically pat your pockets and realise your keys aren’t there? We’ve all been there.

Most of the time, to our great relief, they turn up in the bottom of a bag, the mat well of the car or back at the office, but when they don’t you might want to keep Burfords’ telephone number handy.

SouthHams.com member, Burfords Locksmiths and DIY of Mill Street, Kingsbridge has been saving the day, 24/7, across the south west since 1972.

‘A moment’s lack of attention or forgetfulness can cause a huge amount of aggravation,’ says Burfords’ Dean Adams. ‘and while key recovery schemes are great, it can be days before they’re returned, if at all, which doesn’t help you get back into your house in the here and now,’ he continues.

Tempting though it might be to leave a spare key under the doormat or a flowerpot, these are the first places burglars look, cautions Dean. There may also be implications for your insurance as theft is usually only covered for forceable entry.

Leaving a key with a trusted neighbour or friend is one solution but Burfords also supplies a range of wall mounted key safes. Priced from just £29.99, these can literally be life savers. ‘They can provide an easy access solution for carers and emergency services as well as a secure location for a spare. Our best seller is around £38 and we can also provide a fitting service. We cut keys as well,’ says Dean.

Your key problems solved, you might want to spare a thought for the 9,560 travellers who lost their keys on London transport last year.* Also among the top 10 lost property items were mobile phones (19,453), spectacles and sunglasses (11,455), wallets (11,029) and umbrellas (10,097). Happy days.

For more information you can contact Burfords on 01548 852057.
