Key News #95 - 17th Jun. to 16th Aug. 2014


Locked out? Tony is our recommended Locksmith as he is fully trustworthy, honest, professional and reliable. We have used and recommended him for over 17 years now and the feedback from recommendations has always been very positive. Just bought a new property – congratulations but beware – how many people do you think have handled the keys to your castle before you? We have had a bad experience on this front so we would suggest that the first thing you do after you have put the kettle on and made the bed is to phone Tony to get him to change your locks so that you are absolutely sure that YOUR keys are only available to the people in your world that you choose to give them to.
