Chris arrived punctually at the agreed time on the day I contacted him. He quickly identified the problem and effected repairs and fitted new parts so that the door is working better than it has for years. It is a heavy UPVC double glazed door so would have been very expensive to replace. I was very happy with both the work and the cost.

I called Lock Around the Clock at 08.45hrs on Friday morning and they (Chris and George - father and son team) were with me by 11.20 hrs. Their approach to my request for help was calm and reassuring and this carried through when they arrived. The back door locking mechanism had sheared off and left me with a door that would not open. This was sorted within 40 mins and they were able to use existing parts which kept the cost down. A good experience, and a business I'm happy to recommend.

This local trader was able to resolve my malfunctioning front door handle the same day I called. He and his son, a good team, were able to resolve the problem, and replace the handle, ensuring it was working properly for all functions of the opening, closing and locking of the door. They had a replacement handle on the van, so there was no interval between identifying the problem and sorting it. They were tidy and cleaned the door of any finger marks; they were cheerful, professional and polite. They were recommended by a neighbour and I would recommend their services to anyone. I did not enquire about actual likely cost when I called, but did enquire whether the overall cost would include VAT (it did not). Their advert in the local neighbourhood magazine stated there is no call out charge, so I anticipated having to pay labour and parts. I assumed that they would not be able to give me a quote until they knew what the issues were. I was satisfied that the charge was proportionate for the task, and very relieved to have had the malfunction remedied.

I arrived home about seven PM on the fifteenth of January. I opened and closed the front door but was unable to open it again. I phoned Lock Around The Clock, who advised he could come out to us to access the damage within half an hour, which we thought was superb given it was a Saturday evening. Chris quickly located the problem having opened the door and advised us of our options and cost. We decided to have new parts and Chris replaced the front door gearbox for what we believe was a fair and very reasonable price. The work was completed within forty five minutes with no mess or damage to the door(you wouldn't even know that he had been). Chris was a pleasure to do business with and we were very pleased with the work he carried out, which was all under guarantee. Thank you.

Got me back into my house and fitted a new lock, with spare keys. He was very professional and completed the job quickly and efficiently. When he told me how much, I couldn't believe it - you expect to pay so much for these things but the cost was very reasonable.

I called Chris to ask him to fit a new front door lock which I have purchased myself on Friday to comply with my house insurance. I looked to fit it myself but found the lock was much too complicated for me to fit and decided to call Chris. Chris answered my call straight away and told me that he would try and fit me in later that day. He called me later on Friday afternoon to say he was on his way. Unfortunately, he was unable to fit the lock due to the sitting of the previous lock. Chris made a number of suggestions one of which was to fit a mortice lock which he came and fitted on Monday afternoon. Very happy with the outcome. Tom

Elderly parents kept leaving key on inside front door lock which prevented other key holders from unlocking the door from the outside. Contacted Chris who said he could fit a knob to lock the door on the inside so that the front door could still be unlocked from the outside with a key. Chris' quote was 50% cheaper than others I had obtained and the standard of workmanship was top class.

I approved solution & cost - they did it - I paid - everyone happy with result. Will call them next time I need lock smith.

They arrived at the time they said they would and phoned 30 minutes beforehand to let me know. They initially thought they'd need to replace the barrel in the lock but when they disassembled the lock, they discovered some screws were loose and were able to resolve my problem without any new parts which was the preferred option for me. They also quickly fixed my garage door lock and told me how to prevent that issue in future. They were courteous and professional and their labour charge was very reasonable indeed.

Went the Extra Mile
I called Chris Cavanah to unlock an old-cottage exterior door that had not been opened for 16 years. After doing his locksmith work, an unexpected second problem occurred as the old wooden door was jammed so tight it was very difficult to open/close. Chris went the extra mile and used his electric wood planner to shave off the wooden door stile so that his new lock could be fitted properly and the door now moves much more freely. Also prompt service, good phone communications, good hourly labour rates, good price for a new 5-lever door lock and friendly service. Final tip:- Always keep your locksmith's phone number in your wallet/purse: it's no use inside if you're locked out and can't get into the house!

I have used this company several times and have always been happy with the work. Chris comes quickly and on time. He has done a skilled and quick job every time and at a reasonable price. He has left the work area clean and tidy. Highly recommended and for me the preferred go-to trader for lock matters.

We have used this company twice recently, on both occasions to replace locks on exterior doors. On both occasions they attended early at short notice, within 90 minutes. Work was excellent and the prices reasonable -- even supplying extra keys. Polite efficient service -- would highly recommend them.

Lock Around The Clock fixed a broken front door yale lock. They turned up exactly on time having phoned to give me 30 mins notice of their arrival. The work was completed in an hour or so including cutting an extra 5 keys. The cost was exactly as quoted. This is a Father and Son business: they are polite, efficient and very professional, offering contact details should we need further help or if anything went wrong with their repair. The cost was very reasonable and good value. Definitely use them again if needed.

The work involved unjamming and cleaning the multiple locking bolts on a PVC external door. The response was within a few hours at a most convenient time. The problem was assessed quickly and the possible costs outlined. In the event no replacement was necessary, only cleaning and refitting which was all completed within half an hour. Mr Cavanah was very friendly and helpful and fully explained the job as it progressed. He was a very tidy worker and fully cleaned the door after the work was done. The final cost was less than the minimum quoted.
