Our lock was faulty and the technician from Leftway Locksmith came out to Finedon within an hour of my call! Great service! He also adjusted the door and lubricated all the hinges and moving parts. He adjusted it so that it doesn't squeak anymore! He installed a new and safer anti-pick, anti-drill cylinder with 5 keys, guaranteed for a year. He explained everything to us and was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. On top of that, very reasonably priced! 100% recommend Leftway Locksmith!
