We have used Gearings on several occasions now and have always been impressed by their work and the fact that they always return a call and arrive when they say they will. We have had damaged double glazing units replaced, a stuck window unjammed, a UPVC front door- hanging off its hinges- got a new lease of life and now works like new. We asked for a quote on a recent piece of work, which they did but they also advised that it would be better to replace rather than repair. Gearings couldn’t do the replacement work but suggested several firms that could. In the current world where it’s difficult to find a reliable tradesperson who will turn up, Gearings are a refreshing change and so are very highly recommended.

Matt attended in order to replace a broken double glazed unit. The work was completed on a date agreed to a high standard. I would highly recommend using him in future.

Matt was able to come out on short notice to change the lock on our back door. The mechanism had shattered and we were unable to turn the key! He was very upfront about the problem and gave us a few options for solutions along with very clear facts and transparent pricing. We didn't feel pressured to go with an expensive option and Matt ensured we were getting the best option to suit our needs and budget. The service was quick and he quality tested the work before leaving. Unfortunately, because of the age and quality of our door, it is likely to break again but Matt gave us some warning signs to look for & told us to give him a call as soon as we notice and he'll come back and help us out. 10/10 service, reasonably priced and very skilled! Would highly recommend Gearing Locksmiths.

I had a seized up front door lock which Matt was able to open very quickly, and get the lock working much more smoothly than it had before in a relatively short time, without having to replace any parts. He arrived within 30 minutes of my first phone call, and was leaving having resolved the issue within 30 minutes of turning up. Very happy with the service overall, would highly recommend.

Having not used the Which trusted trader to find a locksmith the day before, when I had a terrible experience with a locksmith found via a general web site search, I used Which and found Gearing Locksmiths. Matt Gearing could not have been more helpful, agreeing to come out the following morning to repair the lock which had been damaged during the previous days visit. He arrived on time and was totally professional. Took the lock apart and repaired the damage. Lock is now working and instead of the £650 I had been quoted by the previous locksmith and I saved myself £600. I could not recommend Matt highly enough. Any absolutely genuine tradesman

I had a patio door which was impossible to open (for me) from either inside or out. Initial communication by email was both prompt and clear. Matty arrived at the agreed time, was friendly and inspired confidence. Within a very few seconds, the door was open and the problem diagnosed, explained, and the cost (which seemed reasonable) immediately provided. The necessary mechanism was collected and installed within the hour. The guarantee was clearly explained and I have no doubt that it would be honoured in the unlikely event of any problems. Totally satisfied.

I had a problem with a broken Upvc window locking mechanism that was no longer available. Having tried numerous other companies I was recommended Matt and I’m glad I was. My initial contact was with Emma who helped me every step of the way in sourcing a replacement and making an appointment for Matt to fit it. It was far from a straight forward fit but Matt was superb and finding a solution and I now have a perfect window again. Couldn’t recommend them more and will not hesitate to use again if I have the need.
