David helped to change my letterbox lock. Fast service on Sunday.( tried contacting other locksmith, no response though website says 247). I like the mode of payment used-paynow. So easy and convenient.
Jimmy, 90999099, was incredible. He was at my house within 40 minutes on a Sunday, was in constant contact with me during that time, and was able to open my door quickly. Thank you so much for your quick and easy service.
Hi Ms Lee,Thank you for the prompt and reliable service. The locksmith was very professional and friendly. He was able to open my gate swiftly, I will sure recommend your services to my friends in the future. Rosa
David Lee was very prompt, he is honest and his workmanship is very professional. Takes pride in his skill and he went the extra mile to help me tighten my wooden door (screws were loose due to fair wear and tear), my padlock and even helped me drill a hole on the floor for my wooden door side panel to secure the door. Very satisfied with the service provided and would highly recommend his service to others.read more
