LockRite Franchise Review

" My career up until this point was not fulfilling my needs, I wanted a career where I was my own boss with a team behind me helping me succeed.
Prior to joining the LockRite team I was a self-employed wall and floor tiler, I wasn’t earning the right kind of money I wanted for my future and was tired of coming home dirty and feeling demotivated.
Before this, I worked in an office for 13 years doing the same monotonous work at the same location day in, day out, so knew I needed to change.

I have the mentality of "not happy, don’t moan about it and be all negative - make the right positive choices and changes as no-one else will do it for you, one crack at life make most of it !!!"

I knew I was happy with being self-employed and working with my hands, loved driving and meeting and helping people on a daily basis, so needed to find a career that suited those needs.

After searching online for career options I stumbled upon a franchise website and delved deeper into looking at different career options to suit my needs - hands on, driving, different locations, own boss, financially rewarding and support.

Booooom!! I found LockRite Locksmiths, so I sent an email enquiring for further information to start the ball rolling. The process was incredibly simple: I spoke to the team and asked direct (and some would say too direct) questions on financials but LockRite were transparent and answered everything, putting my mind at ease.

We then set up a meeting in Exeter for the day to discuss. I loved what I heard and saw, so off I went to secure the relevant funding. I received a welcome pack outlining everything I would receive and modules I would undertake in the intense 5-week training provided and also a list of names and numbers of other franchisees, who I could ask direct questions too. Winner winner everyone was soooooo friendly and helpful, I knew I was making the right decision.

Now I am a fully trained Locksmith with my own large territory, fully kitted out and sign written van, constant work from day 1 and a team, or should I say work family, behind me helping us all succeed for the future.

I started my franchise in April 2018 and words cannot describe how happy I am with my decision…!! Training was superb, communication and support team superb, the amount of work I have received and earnings already - AWESOME! so really happy with my new and only career decision. "

LockRite Franchise Review

" I joined the Lockrite team and launched my franchise on 13th February 2017. This was after a year of researching the brand and franchise options. After having an initial meeting going through details and figures, I set out to see if it was worth the investment (as it is a substantial one) it all seemed too good to be true and I was waiting to find a fault... I didn't find one!

I weighed up the options of investing in the Lockrite franchise or to go it alone, after meeting the team and seeing the well developed infrastructure put in place it made the decision a whole lot easier for me to make.

After going through my 5 week intensive training, which I will add from the practical too accounts was top class! I was itching to get out there to earn some money, as by now I hadn't taken a wage for two months. The whole time through training I was assured I would be earning from day one, I was dubious as I know in any new business it takes time but just as the team said from week one my income exceeded expectations!

At times it's been hard work and very demanding but as long as your willing to make it work, it will! This is all without me personally having to put out a substantial advertising/marketing campaign(I'm not sure I could find the time to fit anymore work in if I did).

After a year in business and nearly 800 jobs later I still stand by my decision 100%. with the continued support, joint teamwork and progression I'm confident this will stay the same throughout my five year term.

This would be a good time to say thank you to the whole team for all the hard work and opportunities which as helped my business become successful. "

" The Lockrite Franchise has been better than I had ever imagined. Anyone like myself will be sceptical about the facts and figures you are shown when looking into a franchise, but I can confirm that all the information you receive from Lockrite is accurate.

The training is second to none and the 24hr support is invaluable. I personally cannot see a better way of getting into the industry and making money from week one. After my five weeks training I left Lockrite headquarters and I received my first call and job on the drive back home.

Your investment is instantly generating you an income and Lockrite will hold your hand as much or as little as you require. I love what I now do."

LockRite Franchise Review

" Coming from a varied background (engineering, uniformed services, facilities management) working for myself and running my own business has always been an aspiration!

I joined Lockrite in August 2016 and straight from the start I knew that I had made the right decision, I had enquired with some other franchise options that just didn't compare.

Training both technical and on the business side was first class and their passion was obvious. Support is always there if needed, the call centre/handling staff are first class and a pleasure to work with and the positive culture runs throughout Lockrite. Certainly no regrets. Highly recommend."

" I have been a Lockrite franchisee for 2 years now and it has been a great move for me.

I came from Royal mail after 14 years and didn't even have a trade background, which i thought may hinder me to start with but it hasn't been any sort of problem.

You get every bit of training you need to hit the ground running and if you get into any difficulties there are always people to help you out.

I'd recommend Lockrite to anybody seriously considering this as their new profession."

LockRite Franchise Review

"I started with Lockrite in September 2015. After taking early retirement I needed a new focus and like many people have always wanted to work for myself but well aware that many start-ups fail.

Lockrite give you the training and support you need to avoid failure. Initial Training was excellent along with ongoing technical support. Administration is organised so you can concentrate on the work, the introduction of I pads for domestic work billing in Jan 18 will save administration time and paperwork.

The use of Google adverts to generate domestic work is very effective for this type of business along with Account work generated by HO which is a real bonus.

I am growing a customer base which is supplying me with regular work within my area. This business can be grown by the franchisee at a speed that suits them but you will not be short of opportunities, there is plenty of work out there.

Contact with your neighbouring franchisees is really helpful as you can share experiences, good and bad, and network ideas and expertise on the national forum.

Your personal success is Lockrite’s continued success, so while you run your own business you are part of a team who have your best interest and are there to support.

I have no regrets in joining Lockrite "

    LockRite Franchise Review - 5 Years On

    Trading For 8 years 4 months 16 days

    "My initial 5 year term is now completed and I had no hesitation renewing my franchise for a second 5 year term.

    Over the past 5 years I have grown my business in terms of turnover and profit every year and have built up a solid customer base in my area which continues to grow and provide regular work. These existing customers along with local advertising, a strong presence on Google and a growing national account portfolio provides a consistently high volume of work.

    The on-going support from LockRite has been great in terms of technical support and training as well as the excellent work of the staff in the call centre who deal with our calls and job allocation.

    The network of franchisees’ work well together and provide an invaluable source of expertise and support. I look forward to a prosperous second term."

    "Following the completion of 22 Yrs service in the Army I wanted to try something completely different, challenging and hopefully rewarding. Having looked at various options I definitely found the 'rite' Franchise with LockRite and I was genuinely excited when I was accepted as one of their Franchisees.

    I completed 38 jobs in my first month of trading of varying degrees of difficulty and variety all of which have been a success with some extra business being generated as a result of getting myself known. I am loving the quality of life I now have since leaving the army and there is nothing more satisfying than customers being happy with the excellent service we give them… "

    "After completing 22 years in the British Army I was looking for a second career that would be both challenging and enjoyable. I decided that being a Locksmith would be ideal; the next choice would be to decide whether to try and be an independent or a franchisee. After much research and deliberation, I decided that a franchise with LockRite was the way ahead.

    As ex-military I was looking for, and expecting, a high level of professionalism and dedication from the initial interviews, through the training period and continuing on afterwards once I had launched my franchise. LockRite not only met these criteria, but surpassed them in every way. After my initial launch when the work was slow to start, I felt reassured by the advice from the support team as well as contact with other franchisees, through our on-line forum, who had gone through the same process.

    I have now been running my own franchise since April 2013 and am more than pleased that I chose this as my new career. The excellent training package had me more than prepared for most of the work that I encounter. There are times however, when on a job, that I come across something that I need help with and this is where the franchisee technical support really comes into its own. Knowing that there is always someone you can speak to for advice is reassuring, as well as a huge confidence boost.

    I have no regrets whatsoever about choosing a franchise with Lock Rite and have no hesitation in recommending it to others."

    LockRite Franchise Review

    Trading For 5 years 9 months 23 days

    "I recently completed my first years trading as a lockRite locksmith franchisee, and I can honestly say it has been a resounding success. Although my previous work experience was in the engineering and hardware industry, I still decided the franchise route would be the correct route for me, and that decision was correct. The small dedicated, and highly motivated team at head office have provided great support to me, with particular regard to Training / Technical Support, IT, and Customer Service, my success would not have been possible with out their support.

    However, do not think handing over the cash to purchase the franchise gives you a ready made business, it still takes a lot of hard work and effort to develop your territory, where you have to be prepared to work long hours, generate your own marketing, and advertising, and be prepared to be continually learning and developing your skill base, but that is also a great attraction and why I love my job so much, I am in control of my own destiny, and as my reputation develops I also generate more business in my area."

    LockRite Franchise Review

    Trading For 6 years 5 months 21 days

    "I started trading with Lockrite in April 2012. It was clearly apparent when joining, that Lockrite was a forward thinking company with the right ingredients to support a successful business. This was echoed by existing Lockrite Locksmiths enjoying their own success and development from rural Devon to inner London the support package was working all across the country and the formula was right.

    Already from an engineering background, it was fairly easy to pick up and learn the fundamentals required to be a locksmith but the tricky particulars and secrets to this profession were diligently delivered during the month long training program at Exeter’s head office. Ongoing support providing skills development and onsite technical input has been invaluable and always available.

    The franchise concept has been carefully formulated by Lockrite. The right balance is in place to build a successful network with sound procedures, quality ethics and commitment to customer satisfaction and value. As individuals, we take pride in our customer relationships and are dedicated to leaving customers satisfied, safe and secure with that peace of mind that goes with a job well done.

    Locksmith work is enormously varied, requiring broad ranging capabilities from unlocking the most secure of locks and designing and installing complex control systems to getting locked out customers in promptly without further distress or making good after a break in and make secure again or provide reassurance that all is safe.

    Attending callouts at 3am may not be to everyone’s liking but the variety and satisfaction that goes with the job makes up for a few disturbed nights and with almost a hundred other Lockrite Locksmiths now covering the country we always have a backup plan not far away to help out if required."
