Changing locks on the front, side and conservatory doors and 2 door handles

Verified Review

We needed new locks on the above doors- Mikey was extremely friendly, efficient and reasonably priced. He even adjusted all of our conservatory doors so that they opened easier as they were rusted and had warped in the heat- for free! Would definitely recommend him.

Replacement of Key Lock

Verified Review

Rang yesterday late afternoon and Mikey arrived today to replace the lock on my front door. Seriously the nicest, friendliest and honest man. 100% happy with his work and would definitely use again and most definitely would recommend. He even cut me an extra couple of keys too so I didn't even need to leave the house for that either! Couldn't be happier. Thanks Mikey ????

Repairing a damaged door after a break in

Verified Review

I telephoned Mikey as an emergency at the close of business the day before the Jubilee Bank Holiday. I did not expect anyone to answer the phone never mind come out. Mikey was at the property within 30 minutes. He advised me I did not need a new lock but that the door could be repaired which he did very quickly. I was hugely impressed by the service Mikey provided. Nothing was too much trouble and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Mikey was most efficient and such a lovely man. We were really pleased with the work he carried out in replacing a damaged lock on our bi fold doors. They have never closed so smoothly! Thanks

Locked ourselves out of the house, Mickey got us back in

Verified Review

We, stupidly locked ourselves out of the house with the key on the inside. Mickey came round within half an hour of calling, and got us back in, in 15 mins. Great professional efficient service. Could not be more complimentary. Thanks so much.
