★★★★★- John, Colchester


I had locked myself out, and tried to get in with a spare key from my neighbour. It didn’t work, but must have pushed keys out a little, whilst still in the lock inside the house. When the locksmith arrived, I turned the lock with the spare key and it opened. The locksmith reduced the price as there wasn’t any work for him to do. I was most appreciative. I would use this company again. Very good service and advice.
