“Came from Shoreham-by-Sea at the speed of light to get to me before I had to wait outside in the cold & dark alone. Got into my home in a matter of minutes. Speedy, friendly & professional. Highly recommended.

Top locksmith, well-priced and genuine guy. No upselling or messing around. Can’t recommend highly enough.”

“Jeff was a star! He rescued my mum’s dog from our flat as she had somehow locked herself in. My husband phoned Jeff and he said he would be there in 20 minutes, which he was. He minimised the use of his tools and worked very quietly which meant that the dog remained calm. Less than 5 minutes later, we were in our flat and cuddling the dog!! Thank you Jeff
