The 3rd Generation
Re-branding to Christchurch Lock & Key
Due to building demolition plans, the Security Centre had the opportunity to move back into the original shop location on Papanui Rd.
During this move , it was decided to rename the business with a more appropriate name. In 2014 the company changed their name to more reflect the nature of the business to Christchurch Lock & Key.
Christchurch Lock & Key is now settled into its revamped original location on the corner of Wyndham St and Papanui Rd. With a “drive in” automotive lock and key repair garage, it also has 40 customer car parks for easy parking.
Mobile vans, cover the city and surrounding areas, with all services from urgent lockouts, to large commercial lock installations.
