Steve has been a locksmith for over 20 years now! Starting as an apprentice in South London in 1992 Steve had a thorough grounding by seeing lots of burglary damage and learning to put it right for the customer.
London is also where he came across the vast variety of locks on the market and how to deal with them – from expensive Banham and Bramah locks in Kensington to the first uPVC door locks in suburbia.
He then moved on to work for his brother in Poole and Bournemouth. Here he learned a great deal about non-destructive lock opening having to gain entry for British Gas engineers as part of a contract.
Steve now works for himself running Lockright Security. ‘I still enjoy the job so much because now everything I do goes towards building the reputation of my own business. Every time I have a happy customer I get job satisfaction so I try to achieve this every day!’
Here are just some of the testimonials that recent customers have given to us:
“Very helpful in explaining what needed doing and did a thorough job without rushing. Would recommend and use again.”
“Very good customer skills and extremely good workmanship and tidiness”
“Just brilliant – so helpful”
“Lockright provided an excellent service in all respects”
Friendly, professional and very skilled, the locks replaced look miles better.
We believe in honesty and openness in our dealings with customers and unlike some other locksmiths, we don’t charge a call out fee.
It makes sense that some of the jobs we do take longer than others and our motto is ‘a fair price for a good job’. That’s why we decided to enrol into the Hampshire Trading Standards ‘Buy With Confidence’ scheme, because our reputation matters more than anything.
