Linda Pedersen

“John, from Advance Locksmiths did a very good job. He was prepared to service the old locks because they were of good quality, however they were over 20 yrs old and had become very rigid and difficult to use. So I requested new ones which he supplied, plus he adjusted my door which had been been contributing to the problem because it had been disturbed by a new door strip. John was on time, very efficient and charged a fair figure and I would recommend Advance Locksmiths to anyone.”

Lesley Murray

“John was very professional and excellent. Will definitely recommend him.”
