Alex turned up at the time stated and managed to get into our locked floor safe very quickly. Courteous, professional and at a good price. Highly recommended.

Great professional service. Highly recommend.

I would recommend The New Forest Locksmith as Alex was very friendly, efficient, helpful and fair. He attempted to repair the existing lock at first rather than just come and immediately replace the unit. The work was first class and he cleaned up after completing the job. I will certainly use this company in the future. Thank you .
