Fort Locks - an excellent discovery
Customer Service

Kevin came to repair a failed lock mechanism at our property at a couple of hours notice. The problem was diagnosed with accuracy over the phone, with the cost of the repair being as quoted beforehand. We found Kevin to be impressionable and most helpful, and we had a good conversation about the fault and the quality of the workmanship! Given the COVID conditions, PPE was worn to carry out the repair and social distancing was exercised at all times. Advice was given covering how to keep the lock mechanism clean and lubricated, as well as advice to keep the door and door surround in a good condition. We were asked to keep Kevin informed if we experienced any problems with the repair. We found Kevin and Fort Locks to be a great Which? trusted discovery in our local area and would have no hesitation in recommending his workmanship.

I needed an easy to use lock on my garden store door, but had no idea of the type of lock or the cost. Kevin arrived within 24 hours of my non-urgent request, quickly assessed what was needed and showed me varying types of suitable locks and prices. Within a very short space of time, the lock was fitted to the door and I was given a demonstration (or two!) on how to operate the lock. The service from start to finish was excellent, payment by card was quick and easy and I would recommend Kevin and his expertise to anyone in need of a locksmith.

Kevin was great. Our door lock was sticking and I was considering replacing it myself, but thought I should get an expert opinion. Kevin came over and pointed out that the door wasn't hung straight and that would cause the issues. He straightened the door and liubricated the lock, now it is working perfectly.

We can’t thank Kevin at Fort Locks enough! Absolute life saver. We were locked out with our baby and 4 year old son and called Fort Locks. He was really polite and was able to get to us within 10 minutes of calling. He was able to open our front door without causing any damage and really in no time at all! Absolutely amazing. Would highly recommend.

I work for a firm of property managing agents in North London. The firm have used Fort Locks for a number of years and, hand on heart, have had no problem at all with the company or Kevin, the Main Man. Nothing is too much trouble for him. All our Property Managers trust him implicitly, he is totally reliable. He offers them advice when he thinks it's necessary and his advice has always been spot on. His costs are also extremely reasonable bearing in mind some of our properties are quite a way outside the M25 boundary. I, personally, had an emergency with my front door lock on a recent Saturday morning, just before I was going away. Such is the trust we hold for Fort Locks and Kevin, I called him and he came over within 20 mins and sorted out the problem. There was no fuss, no lengthy chit-chat, he just got on with the job. He even refused a cuppa ! Definitely to be recommended as a Trusted Trader.

Having moved into a rental and having to deal with a dodgy front door lock and no key to the internal garage door I called Kevin. He was able to come out the next day to do the front door for me and because I only had time to do that door that day he came back to do my other door at the weekend. Very friendly, great advice. Would highly recommend.
