Superb Locksmith

I would like to recommend Alan - a brilliant locksmith - who replaced my front door lock on Saturday. Lovely chap, punctual, helpful and excellent value for money.

07870 199 771.
Alan is great, I can recommend him too. He came to my house today to fix the front door. Very nice and professional. Did a great job. All Locked Out, Tel: 07870 199 771.
Another rec for Alan - my flat was burgled yesterday, he was here within an hour of my call. Place is now much more secure. Nice guy, reasonable price.

Yet another recommendation for Alan. Lovely guy, and he managed to save the day yesterday when something went very wrong with our front door lock and I was trapped in the house. Definitely worth saving his number in your phone just in case!
Another recommendation for Alan (All Locked Out). I rang him with a problem with my front door lock and he talked me through fixing it without needing a locksmith. The next day he called to say he was near me and would I like him to pop round to give me a hand, no charge. Really lovely man and knows his stuff. 07870 199 771.
Another recommendation for Alan.
Was with me within the hour and replaced a faulty lock at the same time.
(Make sure you mention the forum when you use him!)
Alan sorted out or front door this morning. Friendly, on time, good value etc etc

Top guy and recommended.
Again- used Alan today and he was punctual, professional and efficient. Would definitely recommend
I just wanted to add my recommendation to what ruffers has said above. Alan was great, turned up as promised etc, but he also made sure I had a way to get in and out of the house when he needed to go and get a part, and that I was comfortable and safe in the house on my own, despite the broken door. Noticed and appreciated.

Another shout for Alan. He attended to our emergency callout when our key snapped in the lock. He came out straight away and repaired the whole lock and gave great advice, all within the agreed price - very reasonable. Thanks
I would also like to highly recommend Alan. He is a lovely guy and did an excellent job; managed to fix the lock without having to fit a new one and was honest and upfront about everything. Really good value and I will definitely use him again for any lock related problems!

Thanks Alan!
Adding to the long list of recommendations for Alan.
My locks needed changing over a week ago after daughter's bag was stolen; he was on holiday - Because of the high praise here on the EDF I chose to await his return. (He did try to give me details of locksmiths who were available during his absence). Definitely worth waiting for. Supremely efficient, friendly, kept me informed of all stages and the bill at the end was considerably lower than I anticipated. Would use again and recommend without hesitation.
I'm also adding to the long list of satisfied customers. After calling this morning, Alan came round - despite having other jobs away from the area - this afternoon to change my Yale and deadlock. He tried a repair before replacing the deadlock and stayed quite some time to make sure the job was all done properly. Friendly, efficient and the bill was lower than anticipated. Highly recommended
Alan came round to replace our rather flimsy Yale lock today and, as affirmed by many reviews on the forum, he is genuinely wonderful. He gave good advice, was friendly, professional and honest. Really couldn't ask for more. Thank you, Alan.
Alan came out at very short notice to fix the lock on my patio doors. He was efficient, friendly and even tightened another lock on his way out. Very highly recommended.
And yet another recommendation for Alan - who came at immediately, fixed an internal rack bolt very efficiently, and at a very reasonable rate. Great service and a very friendly person.
+1 for Alan - very friendly and helpful - he came round yesterday to offer advice on locks and security after an very unsatisfactory experience with another locksmith. Recommended.
Ok - wow! I have to agree with eveyone above and thank you all for your recommendation.
I just checked out the forum about 2 hours ago as my lock was not working, called Alan (07870 199 771), texted him a picture of the lock, got a quote immediately, and he was here within 30 minutes and replaced the lock just 5 minutes ago. Great guy, and great service. Definitely recommend to anyone.
Apparently he covers all of London, not just East Dulwich.
Alan isn't a member on here but I am (I'm his wife) and just thought I'd post that he is also now on checkatrade:

I'd like to add my recommendation too. A superb locksmith. Alan was very helpful, friendly and efficient. He came today 5/12/2014 and did a fantastic job. He was very reasonable. I agree with all the previous messages. Thanks Alan and thank you East Dulwich Forum. He is also on Check A trade.
Alan 07870 199 771.
Another recommendation from us. We had a few locks that weren't installed properly and we wanted sorted before we went away for Xmas. Alan came around the next day, sorted out the locks and even planed our gate as it wouldn't open properly to the weather.

Nice, trustworthy bloke with very reasonable pricing.

We can also report a superb service for the locks Alan installed for our beer shop. We called him thanks to the recommendations for him on this forum and were not disappointed - lovely chap, prompt service and good prices. Top bloke!
Another recommendation for Alan

Needed lock on bathroom UPVC window fixed

Super prompt, efficient and friendly. He even threw in a free handle as the screw cappings were missing from mine.

Highly recommend and would call him again without hesitation if any similar work needed.

Well done Alan and thanks a lot.

I'd also like to recommend Alan. I tried using Which? Local to find someone but found the recommendations to be out of date, and the coverage for SE London wasn't great. EDF isn't always perfect for recommendations, but I found Alan's details on here and was very pleased.

He changed both front door locks after I had recently moved. He pointed out, very helpfully, that neither lock was "British standard" and therefore the average contents insurance policy would be void for me or any of my neighbours. He was very keen to point out he wasn't up-selling and offered to check my insurance policy, but I completely trust that he was telling the truth. He suggested the cheapest/ best way for me to meet insurance standards.

Once he had the lock he came back, agreed a price up front, stuck to it, did the work efficiently and cleaned up after himself. Also a really nice guy.
Another shout-out for Alan from All Locked Out (07870 199 771). He turned up promptly in an emergency, installed new locks perfectly, and also provided some very helpful general advice on locks and home security, all at a reasonable price. What an expert and real professional. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Edited 1 time(s). Last edit was 2015:02:22:13:10:47 by goosey-goosey.

Can I also add my recommendation of Alan. Fitted new locks for me two weeks ago after extensive telephone consultation. As everyone says he is really helpful, friendly and above all knows about locks! Also he doesn't insist on being recommended on the forum which I why I am doing it!
Another recommendation for Alan. He just fixed our door this week and just like the previous posts he is a true professional and a very amicable guy.
I guess Alan does not need another recommendation but I will add mine, nonetheless. He came very quickly to sort out a minor but irritating problem with a lock. Very competent, professional and pleasant. I couldnot have asked for more.
Alan did a new Yale for us today and he was great - quick, reasonably priced and didn't mind having screws stolen by a three year old.
After searching for a locksmith on the forum I found this thread and gave Alan a call, he is unfortunately busy on a Friday but he was able to give me a number a friend/rival he said was 'superb' too by the name of David. Within the hour he was over and had fixed the problem. I mentioned to David that I found Alan's number... and before I could finish my sentence he replied 'the forum' and went on to say how much work this has now provided Alan. So I guess a good news story for the forum.

Either or I imagine provide excellent services.
