Used Matt last year to solve a seized front door lock which he did very promptly during early lockdown. I promised him I would call him back to upgrade my other external locks which are all over 30 years old. He visited this morning, checked and oiled all locks and advised although they are old they are all still in perfect working and he felt it wasn't necessary to upgrade as they are as secure as current locks. He made a small charge for the oil. What a delight to find such an honest trader who didn't see an opportunity to make money from me. Apart from anything else he is a very friendly and amiable person to have in the house.

Had a faulty door lock. Rang and received same day service. Matt was very helpful when I rang to book. I felt reassured he knew what the fault was. The job itself was quick as stated and for the price quoted. Felt I had received great customer service. I highly recommend Gearing Locksmiths and have recommended them to my family. Always good to find a trader you can trust.

I couldn't lock my UVPC front door from either the inside or the outside. The key would insert and turn but not be able to fully lock the door. Having used them in the past and finding them very professional I phoned Gearing Locksmiths and spoke to Emma. After explaining the problem Emma diagnosed a blown barrel, gave me a price and said that Matt would be round later on that afternoon. Matt turned up after about an hour, much earlier than expected. On inspection Matt confirmed that the barrel had blown and proceded to change the barrel. Matt supplied us with new keys. I was very relieved that the problem had been resolved both quickly and efficiently. Thank you Matt and Emma. I will certainly use them again in the future - Gearing Locksmiths will be my first port of call.

Gearing Locksmiths provided me with additional keys for my property and improved the original! They responded to my request within the hour and arrived to carry out the work by lunchtime the same day. Super fast! They showed such consideration, I was very grateful. Even for a small job they went the extra mile. It was worrying, especially in Lockdown to have nobody nearby with a spare key and their compassionate and swift response allayed my fears. Thank you very much Matt and Emma, wonderful people and an excellent service!

When my tenant locked herself out of the house and contacted me in distress I called Gearing Locksmiths who instantly came to her help even juggling a family appointment to help. Their response time was incredibly fast and even managed to get her back in the house without having to change the locks. This is the second time we have used Gearing Locksmiths and will not hesitate to do so in the future. Highly recommended and highly professional service.

Needed an adaptation to a front door locking mechanism. Matt attended next morning - quickly assessed what was needed, gave a fair price and completed the job within half hour. Great result and lovely people to do business with. I'll have no hesitation in using Gearings Locksmiths again.

I try to use local businesses whenever possible and luckily found Gearing Locksmiths on a search this morning, a phone call and a few pictures of the door mid-morning and Matt arrived at lunchtime to fit a mortice deadlock for me. Brilliant service, no fuss, no mess, job done. My thanks to Matt and Emma for the super fast response, very much appreciated. I would recommend without any hesitation.
