We are an Approved Company of the Master Locksmiths Association so if you need expert advice and help from time served, experienced locksmiths who know how to pick locks open if you're locked out, we are the ones to call, 24 hours a day.

In fact, we're so sure in our abilities, we even give our customers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. How's that for peace of mind? And that's not just if you're locked out, it's with all our work.

Great guy
I called Lock Assist in a panic about my car roof box lock. The guy was brilliant. He gave me great advice which I followed and managed to fix the problem myself. This of course saved me money and a whole lot of hassle. He really didn’t need to be so helpful as he didn’t earn anything from me. I would certainly use them for any future problems and happily pay.

Hi Joanne, thank you very much for your kind review - not everyone is out to make a quick buck, a few of us believe in offering a great service but no invoice! Always very happy to offer free advice and glad we were able to help you in your hour of need! Regards, Paul.
Lock Assist
Unfortunately our door lock failed on a Sunday and out of 15 phone calls made to locksmiths reportedly all offering a 24-hour callout, this company was the only one that offered a solution. With an arrangement to attend site on Monday morning. They were prompt, informative and importantly they even mention that the callout charge will be less as it was a weekday not weekend and when the bill arrived we were very surprised that even after two visits the bill was less than £220. Great service, will highly recommend this firm, both Paul and the fitter - honest, courteous and knowledgeable.

Extremely helpful
Customer Service
Lock assist were recommended to me by a glazing company who said they were very reliable. I found them extremely helpful when I called and they arranged to change the lock and provide new keys for my conservatory door the next morning. They arrived promptly and carried out the work quickly and efficiently.

Antique writing box revived
Customer Service
Paul from Lockaccess even from my initial contact by phone demonstrated his concern and willingness to resolve my problem with his rapid understanding of what I was asking him to do. The box had not been opened for 30 plus years and contained personal paperwork and a few sovereigns. His quick recognition this might be the case he explained he would need to take the box out of my field of view but would not lift the lid after picking the lock until he was in my presence again. This he accomplished in no more than 15 minutes and went on to provide an overall to the lock itself, a key of similar age and a keyring to minimise the loss of the key again. Until I found Paul my experience in locating a locksmith had not been particularly pleasant. Whenever I have any lock problem again Lockaccess will be the only solution to contact.

I phoned with a broken front door lock. They called back quickly and tried to help over the phone to avoid any cost which was really appreciated. We could not fix it remotely so they came out very quickly and dealt with the problem.

Quick response and job turn around. Accurate quotes
Customer Service
I phoned up in emergency hours, was originally asked is, it an emergency? When stating no, they kindly told me to ring back a few hours later so I wouldn't be over charged which was great, so left me with a good feeling to ring back. Once I rang back I was told 3 prices dependant on the work that was needed and they could of turned up the same day if it wasn't down to my time limitations. They turned up on time the next morning, fixed my lock issue with my front door and told me the exact work that had been carried out which matched the price I was given over the phone. Overall brilliant service and if I need a locksmith again I won't hesitate in calling them straight away.

Upvc side door jammed shut
Customer Service
A telephone call for help, for a Upvc side door that was multi-locked and could not be opened, was answered politely and professionally with a price for a repair given. An appointment was made and kept. The door was opened within 2 minutes (without damage to the door or surround) and repaired within 10 minutes (spare part, a gearbox, carried in van). Very pleased with the service received and would certainly use again.

Hi Mike, thank you very much for your kind review. I don't think there are many firms that hold the amount of stock of Upvc gearboxes as we do. That means we can usually get the job completed in just one visit. Regards, Paul.
