Mum had a problem with her door lock. I was unable to help her, so I called Scott Lock. Spoke with Gary and within the hour the job was fixed. His service is professional and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a lock fixing. Thank you Gary; we are in your debt. More...

Gary managed to do what others had failed at before. He sorted out a spare key for my Jeep Grand Cherokee - something which even the main dealers couldn’t do successfully and at half the price. Brilliant service carried out where and when I needed it. Would really recommend his services. More...

Went shopping this morning and somehow lost my only car key to my Mercedes. I live 30 miles away from where I was parked so had no way of getting home. One call to Gary at Scott lock and within 20 minutes he was there. He picked the lock then programmed a new key for me and did it all for a very fair price. Would definitely recommend his services.

Just wanted to give a huge shout out to Gary Scott from Scottlock! Came as arranged no call out fee, exactly on time in the pouring rain, had a good look at my lock although it had decided to work today! He wouldn’t even let me give him petrol money for coming. A really genuine, knowledgable, professional, friendly, caring, bloke with a fantastic sense of community and wonderful moral compass. I’d recommend him to everyone if you have locksmith needs. Thankyou so much What goes around comes around and I’m sure in your hour of need there will be a little angel there for you! Thanks Gary ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ More...

Thank you Gary for your excellent service today. Our key snapped off in the lock and to be quite honest, I was quite stressed about having to sort it out. Not only did you turn up within 5 minutes of calling and immediately sort the problem, you also didn’t charge for your time and expertise. I would definitely recommend Gary to anyone needing a locksmith and will be calling you in the future if we ever need your help again. Thank you so much. More...

Prompt, friendly and efficient service - would definitely recommend. Having recently moved to our new home we knew that family & friends of the previous owner all had multiple keys, hence we were keen to replace the barrels. Gary visited and provided us with an exceptionally competitive quotation, returning just a few days later to complete the works. He also fitted window restrictors (for added security) and new catches on the fan-lights, making them easier to use. The front and rear doors now operate smoothly and efficiently - we really couldn't be happier with the works - Thank you Gary, an excellent service!! Daniel & Ruth, York More...

Locksmiths are not tradesman who you use on a regular basis, so Gary was something of an unknown quantity. I needn't have worried because he was superb - skilled, friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. To quote a boxer from the last century: "Simply the best!" More...

I was having trouble with the lock on my front door and called Gary to see if he could sort it out. He came very promptly and assessed the problem, and then returned when he said he would and spent ages adjusting the door and refitting the lock. Subsequently the door handle became very stiff to open and I asked Gary to come and have a look at it. Again, he was with me as soon as he could, and did his best to rectify the problem, which was not of his making! I'm impressed with the service and with Gary's professionalism and friendly demeanour. I will definitely recommend him to friends and family. More...

I had an issue with my PVC front door , the lock kept jamming and as its a lever lock as well I was worried about cost. Gary took the whole mechanism off, it was an older style, he cleaned it all up worked on it and got it moving, he then changed the key lock part and gave me five new keys. The lock is easy to use and my door locking system moves like new. Gary saved me money and my house is finally properly secure. Trust me if you have dodgy door hes the man to call, he tries really hard and doesnt charge you extra. Its worth it to sleep at night. Highly recommend. More...

Having never needed the expertise of a locksmith I recently found myself locked out of my house with the key snapped inside the lock.
There was no way of entering my property after all my attempts I had made to try and get the snapped key out of my door had failed.
I telephone Scott Lock which was a local service near to where I live. A very polite man answered my call and stated he would be with me in around half an hour.
Upon his word (Gary) a member of Scott Locks team arrived as he stated he would, where he said he would get the snapped key out of the lock without damaging my door
True enough Gary managed to get the broken key out of the lock without even damaging my door. Gary was very polite, helpful and reassuring. I would recommend the services of Scoot Lock to all my friends a family, he truly is a credit to your company.
