Fast efficient & quality service at a fair price
Customer Service
This was a somewhat difficult that required a new chub lock on glass door and fixing the current yale lock. I was very impressed with the efficiency and problem solving skills to get the job done. I was away at the time so everything was agreed over the phone . An excellent job done by an efficient and experienced locksmith. Many thanks !

Solved the problem. Great service!
Customer Service
Richard sorted out a tricky lock on an old UPVC front door. I can't recommend him enough. This was a small and fiddly job but was important to me and Richard fixed it at a reasonable price. I would definitely use him again.

Absolutely outstanding service from the Lockdoctors. They Responded to a very sensitive situation and went out of their way to help us
Customer Service
We were given the Lockdoctors contact from a friend that used them previously. We just landed in another country while taking a short holiday, When our Naubour called to say that someone has broken into our house in Islington . After the police and forensics had been and gone we needed to get a front and back to repaired as there was so much damage to both doors. The Lockdoctors were so helpful and supportive, which gave me and my wife peace of mind . They fitted two doors , new locks and handles all in one day. The next day they returned and fitted a professional alarm and CCTV. They were trustworthy, upfront and genuine . The price of the work done was fair considering the amount of work that had to be done. Thank you guys The service was second to none. Mr & Mrs Grant Islington

Locksmith and handyman
Customer Service
Richard has done a a number of jobs for me Over the last six month. His workmanship and attention to detail are excellent. He is reliable, efficient and tidy ( cleans up after himself). And as a bonus he is a lovely guy. The prices quoted were very fair with no hidden extras. He is a good Locksmith but also a very clever and diligent handyman- works out how to do things and does them very thoroughly. Sorted out a things that other people walked away from.

Called Lock doctors out and within a few hours had someone come over to change a few locks. Member of staff was very friendly, extremely helpful and done a fantastic job overall. Looking forward to recommending them to family and friends, as well as using their services again when needed.

Charged for nothing
Customer Service
Called up for lock repair, the guy turned up very quickly, a very nice and polite guy, took down the lock but couldn't repair it, he suggested he would need to take it back to shop to reset etc, I said to him i would need to think about it but he still charged me £55.00, I noted to him that I thought there is no call out charge and he didn't mention anything about cost before, but he said this is only for regular customers which I feel is very unfair
