When someone robs your home its an invasion of privacy, and it can be the most stressful time in your life

Your home is your safe zone, a place where you relax and feel comfortable. When someone robs your home its an invasion of privacy, and it can be the most stressful time in your life. Locktrix has put together a step by step guide on what you need to do when your home has been robbed –

1. Call the police
As soon as you identify that a robber has entered your home, try and stay calm and call 000 immediately. Try not to touch anything as the police will need to fingerprint for valuable evidence. The offender may still be in the house, so its best to remove yourself from the property and locate a safe place until the police arrive.

2. Secure your home again
Once the police have been, its recommended that you secure your home as quickly as possible. Changing your locks is a must, and the team at Locktrix Locksmith are available 24/7 for your emergency locksmith requirements. We can respond to any emergency on the Central Coast within 45 minutes. Once onsite we will identify ourselves and work quickly to change all your locks and secure the property.

3. Submit insurance claims
Write a list of all the items that have been taken and contact your insurance company. They will likely ask for proof of purchase of high-value items such as golf clubs and jewellery. Always ensure you keep these receipts locked in a safe place.
