Although we’re proud to be Barnsley residents ourselves, it’s fair to say that Barnsley isn’t the safest place to live.

Called them out for a jammed lock and they came within the hour. Really polite, friendly and professional, and explained what the issue was and sorted another minor issue we didn't even know about to stop it getting worse as part of the job.

Everything you want from a lock smith. We are a care provider and our clients key safe failed. Meaning we couldn't support with medication. Danny was super responsive and discreet as not to concern our client. And saved the day. Meds given and no drama's, Would recommend. Competitive rates considering it was out of hours also. We also got a follow up call to ensure we received the invoice and checked to see if we were happy with the service.
