Why become an MLA Locksmith?

So you’re an experienced locksmith and you’re wondering how to take your career to the next level? Why not take the MLA’s industry-renowned British Locksmith Institute exam and work towards MLA Approved Company Membership by undergoing the MLA’s inspection process.

You Can Achieve a Real, Tangible Return on Your Investment:

We were delighted to hear earlier from MLA Approved Company Lockmaster1 that they are averaging £500 worth of work each week thanks to their MLA membership!

Their MLA membership is working very well and the web presence attracting the right kind of clientele (e.g. one enquiry via the MLA website this week leading to a £900 job!)

So it just goes to show that it pays being an MLA member.

Here’s Some Other Benefits to Becoming an Approved Company Member:

  • Use of the MLA logo on marketing materials (incl. vans and websites)
  • A dedicated seo-friendly profile on the MLA’s website to greatly increase sales leads
  • Have your membership highlighted in the MLA’s Handbook which gets distributed to insurers, police and industry professionals

Here’s the General Benefits You’ll Receive for Being a Member (Applies to All Categories of Membership):

  • Substantial discounts off cars/vans from a range of leading manufacturers for business/personal users (including up to around 43% off new Vauxhall/Ford vans)
  • Business equipment
  • Corporate/personal financial products – including mortgages and insurance
  • Specialist corporate insurance – including; property, stock and public & employee liabilities
  • Corporate/personal private medical insurance plans
  • AA breakdown cover
  • Card payment processing services
  • Advertising discounts
  • Intellectual property rights and copyright discounts for your branding
  • Website development and hosting services
  • Telecoms plans
  • Uniform discounts in a wide choice of styles
  • … and for those times when you’re out of the office – European holidays
