We provide a first class service to the community at fair and honest prices, call for a free quotation.
All our services are guaranteed and you can count on us to fit only safe and approved top quality branded locks. Our call outs are free of charge, our quotations are free of charge and we'll offer you a FIXED COST repair price. We promise you'll never find any nasty surprises in the bill when we come to settle up and - even more important - if we don't solve the problem to your satisfaction, you won't owe us a penny. Our repeat business proves these claims aren't just sales talk.
We specialise in uPVC door and window lock repairs and we have common replacement spares on board, if your locking unit is beyond repair, we carry complete new branded mechanisms. Either way we can usually solve your problem on our first visit and if we do need to order a special unit, we'll return to fit it at no extra cost and at a time convenient for you.
We're skilled in non-destructive entry and over 95% of our lockout calls are solved quickly and neatly, drilling out your locks to gain access is a last resort, never our first option. We'll rekey existing locks or upgrade to high security fittings as required.
We offer free security surveys - if you have any worries about the general security of your home or business then give us a call to arrange a free, no obligation survey. There is no charge for this service and no requirement to buy from us.
Residential customers - if your uPVC door is hard to close or difficult to lock, we can re-align dropped hinges or replace worn out locking mechanisms and check the locks for wear and tear. We can upgrade your security with the latest locks and bolts on front and back doors, patio or french doors, garages and sheds and we can fit door chains and peepholes.
Commercial clients - we fit mortice locks to BS3621 for insurance requirements, keyed alike or keyed to differ. Digital locks for external or internal doors ensure only authorised staff can enter. High security locks with Restricted Key Duplication System means keys can't be copied and fitting Master Keyed and Central Locking Suites will limit access to selected areas.
Property Agents - we can take responsibility for lock changes and security surveys on behalf of Estate Agents or act for the new buyers directly and for Letting Agents, we can change locks and secure premises with the absolute minimum of fuss or deal directly with your tenants when they need new door or window locks fitted
When you need a trusted local locksmith, we're just a phone call away and we're available 24/7.
