  • Door lock

    I phoned John this morning to find out if he could come round and have a look at my front door as it was not locking.

    He told me he would pop round and have a look at it which was pleasing, he had a look and soon found the problem so he popped away to get the bit i needed and returned sharply to secure my door.

    Which was brilliant for me and my family then gave me the price which was alot less than i thought he was honest and friendly and talked me through exactly what he was doing so to that i can't thank John enough and will definitely recommend him to my friends and relatives if needed in future
