First Steps to Take After a Home Invasion

A burglary can be a terrifying and unnerving experience. Whether you are in your home when it happens or not, you will find your peace of mind shaken. You can react calmly when you have a plan. So let’s look at four steps you should take when you realize you’ve been the victim of a home invasion.

Call the police

Before you call your partner or other loved ones, always call the police! If you think someone might still be in your home, leave immediately and call from outside.

It’s always important to call the police. The faster they get on the scene, the more likely they are to actually catch the culprit. Even if you think they won’t solve anything, it helps develop a case if many break-ins happen in the area.

So for your safety, and the security of your community, call the police first.

Take pictures of everything

The next thing you should do is take photos of everything. Do this before moving items, or cleaning up broken glass or belongings. Your pictures may help in the police investigation. They also could be helpful when you are dealing with an insurance claim.

This brings us to the next step you should take.

File a claim with your insurance company

Contact your insurance company as soon as possible. The sooner you make that call, the more details you will be able to remember. Stressful situations can easily cloud your memory. This is why your photos may also come in handy. They can be a visual reminder to help you get the details correct.

Have your locks changed by a trusted professional

Finally, you will want to have a professional locksmith come to your home and change your locks. When a break-in happens, you don’t know what was intended. In case the thieves plan to return, you want your locks to be secure.

Super G&R Installation offers 24-hour locksmith services. Let our trusted professionals put your mind at ease!

Had a nasty situation where someone got into my van and broke off a house key into my vehicles ignition. One of the owners personally came out and thanks to his experience and skill was able to extract the key without damaging the cylinder. A less skilled locksmith wouldn’t have been able to pull it off. Super Impressed can recommend.

Greg was the hero of the day. Came to help when we were locked out of the house and stayed much longer than required to ensure we were completely satisfied. Can’t recommend him enough.

Greg was awesome, ordered my key quickly, and then came to my house to program it the same week. Prompt, friendly, fast service, and cheaper than the dealer for my Audi A7. I will be a repeat customer for sure !

Amazing service, friendly folks, quick response and high quality. We had an issue with our old 2006 BMW key, and the guys created a new one that works well and now we can use the remote features right from the key (and also use it for its main functionality). Highly recommend Super G&R Installation if you have any issues with your car or home keys and locks.

I found out in -34 degree weather that my ignition key did not unlock my vehicle. My truck was running and they got to my house within 20 minutes of me calling them. Got into my truck and cut me a new key for my door so I can actually get in now! Service was great.

My daughter bought a car but after a couple of days it died. My husband installed a new battery but still the car was dead. I called Craig to help. He not only found what was causing the car to fail but also made a spare key. Exceptional service that our family has great appreciation for. Highly recommend to contact Graig to experience awesome service yourself!

Update – the lock was still acting weird – Andrey came over and figured out what was wrong with it. He also cut me new keys because I wanted some extras. Excellent, efficient service. Will be recommending them.Andrey was great! I have been having issues with my electronic lock and have fixed the problem myself in the past. This time, it wasn’t cooperating. I called, and Andrey helped me over the phone, and it seems to be working now.I really appreciate that he helped me remotely and didn’t come out just to charge a service fee. If I have any more lock or key needs, I’m definitely calling Super G&R, and will be recommending them to anyone who asks.

I was having issues with my car keys as well as ignition. In a state of panic, my husband contacted Super G&R Installation to aid me. Gregori immediately came to examine the issues I was experiencing with my keys and ignition. Gregori was able to make me a new car key as well as fix my ignition and my car door lock. The service I received was beyond exceptional.Additionally, Gregori even went out of his way to drop off my car keys to my work once he was done working on my vehicle. My overall experience was excellent, genuinely. I highly recommend Super G&R Installation.

Made the call in the morning and my front door lock issues were resolved within hours (on a Saturday no less). Andrey was very professional and clearly went above and beyond servicing not just the broken deadbolt, but also ensuring the whole door system was working perfectly.Worth giving them a call for sure and would use them again in a heart beat.

We lost our keys for our tent trailer and this was the third company I tried to get out. Without hesitation Rob said he would be over first thing in the morning. He was right on time, took him less than 30 mins and even cut us new keys. Highly recommend, thanks Rob!!

A trustworthy professional solved my very stressful loss of key. He was able to provide the new keys and fob, battery recharge, and relocation of the towed car to a safer place. The expert help from Super G & R put me back on the road with keys in hand. Very experienced, personable, and equipped with all of the tools necessary to solve a difficult situation. I recommend this amazing small business without hesitation!Thanks SO much!

I was in a pickle, locking myself out of my car; not from Calgary. Unfortunately the first tech wasn’t able to get in, but he quickly phoned his other tech who had the right tools. They were able to get me into my car and back on the road in a very timely manner. For a pretty fair price. I highly recommend them, since they’re also 24/7, if it wasn’t for them, I would have had to stay another night in the City, and go down to a Dealership to get a door key cut. Super honest Tech’s.

Super G&R Installation was amazingly helpful and prompt. My key fob broke the day I was supposed to drive down to the states for school. Needless to say, I was super stressed and panicked about what to do. I called Super G&R Installation and Greg was able to help me out the same day I called. He programmed a replacement key for my car and I was able to start my drive down to school. Overall Greg was super helpful, I highly recommend this place.
