It is difficult to think of interesting/relevant items to discuss in magazines and the longer that you are around, the more difficult it gets! This one is no different as I don’t want to ‘teach my Granny to suck eggs’!
Most of you have been Locksmithing for years before I started at Advanced Keys and could probably teach me loads! But that is what I love about this industry. Every day there is something new to learn and new methods of finding out what you need to know. There is a constant battle with the franchised dealerships and vehicle manufacturers where they hold onto information about part numbers and other vehicle related information as though their life depended on it and, despite regulation being brought in a few years ago which meant that they have to share information this has not really come to fruit. But this is the challenge that we have to take on and relish (otherwise we will all go nuts and eventually go out of business and let them win!)
So here at Advanced Keys this is what we are concentrating on – improving the range and collecting as much information that we can from wherever we can get it (legally!) and then passing it on via our website (www.advanced-keys.co.uk) /Locksmith Forums/Twitter (@advancedkeys). I hope that this is helpful to you and please feel free to comment on this via Email, telephone or Twitter as we love to hear what you think – good and bad – because if you don’t tell us what we are doing wrong then how can we put it right? On the reverse side we love praise when we get it right – such a good feeling that we can spread amongst our small Locksmithing ‘community’ so that we all feel better about the constant changes and get us through the day with a smile on our faces – then we can continue this onto the really important people in our personal lives instead of taking out a bad day on them!
So to paraphrase the British Government in 1939 – Keep Calm & Carry On! – It’s the only way!
