Customer reviews for this trader
Brilliant service, look no further for a locksmith. Geoff repaired our front door lock and re-aligned the back door. He also fixed our kitchen window so that we could open it. Very professional service all at a very reasonable price.
Excellent service, perfect job. A real professional who takes care and pride in his work. Cleans up after and charges a very fair price. Came same day and worked into the evening to get the job completed. Will certainly use again and I highly recommend him.
Geoff Barker is a knight in shining armour. My daughter had her bag stolen with her keys. He came as soon as he was able quite late in the evening, he was so polite, kind and understanding. He very soon replaced our lock so we could go to bed feeling safe. Highly recommended. Thank you Barkers Locksmiths.
Geoff did a very professional job for a very fair price.
Read the reviews; you won't need to look any further. Don't hesitate, just contact Geoff and you can be sure of excellent service from a very friendly and knowledgeable locksmith. I had a broken multipoint lock which he was able to replace immediately from the stock carried on his van. He gave advice on more secure locking systems to consider, and made adjustments on two other doors. Like so many reviewers, I am pleased to recommend Geoff whole-heartedly to do a thoroughly professional job at a fair price. Geoff is on my list of Trusted Traders.
An excellent service both for a possible emergency and for follow up support work. Efficient and polite. Can recommend without reservation.
Did an extremely good job at a very fair price. Was willing to spend time explaining various alternatives to deal with the problem. We would have no problem in highly recommending this company to anyone in need of the services it provides.
Genuine, honest and reliable service. Arrived in under an hour and got the job done there and then. Brilliant value for money.
Very reliable, tidy, professional, knowledgeable and courteous. Would thoroughly recommend.
Geoff Hagin was incredibly professional and went above and beyond when fixing our lock. Not only sorting out the broken lock but adjusting the affected door hinges to ensure a complete job. He also kindly fixed another door which he noticed wasn't quite right. The price was very fair, in fact much lower than I expected. Can't recommend enough.
Geoff did an extremely professional job at a reasonable price. He was meticulously careful and cleaned up very thoroughly afterwards. He is considerate and completely trustworthy.
Don't look any further, if you want honesty, fair pricing mixed with a lot of competence, email or call Geoff. Enough said.
Professional and friendly service from Geoff Hagin. He dealt with the problem very quickly, provided further advice on our security and I am very happy to recommend this company.
Geoff came to replace a damaged lock on my front door. I did not think it could be repaired and had resigned myself to a replacement. He arrived as scheduled and was very pleasant and affable. He removed and repaired the lock there and then as well as making an adjustment to the secondary lock on the door to make it easier to turn. He gave expert advice on the security requirements of various locks for home insurance purposes, demonstrating by showing me the parts of the keys and locks. He also cut a spare key for me. He cleaned up before leaving the site. The charges were very reasonable indeed. I would not hesitate to recommend Geoff to anyone requiring a skilled locksmith.
Rang the company and Geoff was able to come out that morning and resolve the problem. Would definitely recommend!!
I'd just like to say how professional and reasurring Geoff Hagin is. His son is also a credit to him. I called him in the middle of the night in distress, he was so kind and helpful, and came and changed my house locks. Geoff and his son gave me back peace of mind and I could sleep again after an awful incident. Geoff showed me how the new locks worked and why they were strong. In my hour of need he made my house safe again.
I have used Geoff on two occasions. Each time he turned up promptly and repaired my lock efficiently whilst explaining to me the pros and cons of alternative solutions. His prices are reasonable for the quality of workmanship and trade knowledge he delivers and I can recommend him without reservation.
Reliable, efficient, knowledgeable service - I would confidently recommend Geoff at Barker's Locksmiths. I neededed locks changing following a house move, and Geoff gave me valuable advice, which also saved me money, and did the work with care and precision.
Geoff came to install a new door lock and was meticulous in ensuring that he did the job to a high standard. Very reasonable charges too. Would gladly recommend and would use his services again.
I had recently purchased my property and wanted the locks changed. I contacted Barkers Locksmiths through Derbyshire Trusted Traders and he replied very quickly. He came out to my property and showed me the locks available and as my front door was an odd size the lock had to be made, but to ensure I felt safe he installed temporary locks while my lock was made. He then came back and changed the locks to the ones made and ensured all were linked to the same keys. He suggested other locks be changed and said he would happily come back when I was ready to sort them. He was very friendly and genuine and I felt very safe with his suggestions and my new home feels very secure. I would recommend Geoff to anyone who wants their locks changed. He even checked doors for alignment and added spray to all my squeaky hinges etc. A very good service.
We had a upvc door that couldn't be opened, it felt as though the latch mechanism was jammed. Geoff arrived on the agreed day and was soon able to get the door open and identify the problem which was swiftly repaired. Geoff also took time to overhaul the door and realign the hinges. He took time to explain what he had done and was very informative. All this at a very reasonable price. Overall a very professional approach, and definitely a firm I would use again.
Geoff responded the same morning and solved both problems in around an hour, clearly explaining his work and showing me the parts he was replacing. Friendly, trustworthy and confident in his work. Will definitely use again.
Geoff came to gain entry to our front door and changed the lock. He was extremely knowledgeable and explained each step. He even fixed the wonky door so it closes smoothly. Will be calling on him when we upgrade the locks on our new home. Excellent job done for a very fair price!
Absolutely brilliant service. Rang Geoff with concerns about home security after a worrying incident where I felt my house was at risk of being burgled. Rang Geoff in the evening and he kindly rearranged his plans so he could come to sort out the house locks the following morning. Geoff has a very polite, friendly and reassuring manner. He inspected all the locks in the house and advised how they could be made more secure. He then changed some of the locks to more secure ones, talking through how each one worked with me. He was very respectful of our home environment, wearing shoe covers and cleaning up immaculately where he had drilled. I thought his charge was more than reasonable. Will definitely be calling Geoff again when I plan to have some more locks changed in the future. Would highly recommend.
PVC door latch on garage not working correctly. Arrived next day and identified problem, including repairing hinge and re- aligning door. Very pleasant man, who helped to arrive at a cost effective solution to the problem. Strongly recommended.
Had been having difficulty closing locking upvc door. This resulted in the key snapping in lock making door unusable. Contacted Barkers at 8.30am and he offered to come the same morning. Arrived promptly and carried out the work which involved realigning door which had slipped quite badly out of true, hence locking problems and amongst other work fitting new barrel. All necessary work explained and discussed in very professional manner. Price seemed reasonable. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or use again if needed
Contacted Geoff 7am - unable to open UPVC door. Arranged time for him to come out. Arrived on time and door was fixed in an hour, cleared up after. Very helpful. Reasonable price.
Superb customer experience! Quick and efficient - highly professional service.
Geoff is an excellent person, he was punctual, friendly and very professional. I had a damaged lock that required replacement. He spent time explaining the locks that are available. Geoff fitted the lock and provided extra keys. I am hoping to move soon and will certainly be contacting Geoff to provide advice on my new property.
He came at the agreed time and explained everything to me regarding my faulty lock. A tradesman who does what he says is very rare, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Geoff. Excellent professional job.
I emailed Geoff on a Sunday and was really please to get a call back first thing on Monday and the offer to come and look at a problem lock that afternoon. Geoff was courteous and friendly and explained everything. He took pains to make sure that everything was working correctly before he left. I would definitely use Barkers Locksmiths in the future!
Geoff arrived when he said he would and quickly repaired the lock at a fair price, I would highly recommend him.
After one of our clients tenants lock broke at 10pm at night Geoff came out and replaced the UPVC gearbox from van stock, this left us with a happy client and a happy tenant. Would recommend Barkers Locksmith to any of our clients.
Geoff arrived when he said he would and offered excellent advice and options and then fitted a new locking mechanism in quick time and at a really good price. Would highly recommend and I wouldn't hesitate to use his services again if needed.
Superb. First class. Professional. These are just some of the words to describe Geoff from Barkers Locksmiths. He gave me extensive and lengthy advice via email about upgrading locks to insurance standards. Then spent several hours getting everything right at our new home. He explained as he went along, was very reasonably priced and tidied up after himself. A simply brilliant locksmith. Don't bother looking elsewhere for a locksmith. Thanks Geoff!
What incredible service. Arranged for an afternoon appointment and got a phone call half an hour before arrival. The gentleman arrived and I immediately felt at ease. He was careful, wearing shower covers over his shoes to keep the carpet clean. He explained what he was doing and had to patiently try all kinds of things before finding the fault. In the end we had to have a new lock but he managed to find one that complimented our existing doorplate and size. Not only that, but he was able to cut us 3 extra keys to save us the hassle of going elsewhere. And swept up afterwards and wiped down the door. I would highly recommend Barkers locksmith.
Excellent responsiveness, demonstrated knowledge and skill, a fair charge, surprised even that it included the price of the new lock. Work completed speedily and efficiently. I have no hesitation in recommending Barkers Locksmiths.
Geoff is very courteous and helpful. He responded quickly to my request to replace the old lock on the back door of the property which is being let prior to sale. Liaised appropriately with tenant and attended at her convenience. Price considered very reasonable.
Geoff adjusted my French windows whose hinges had dropped so they wouldn't lock. It was a very awkward and tricky job which took a lot of fine adjustment. My windows lock again after long last! A really good job and excellent value.
Geoff is a shining example of what one should expect from both a Trusted Trader and a master craftsman. Prompt,courteous and meticulous in his work. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a locksmith.
Geoff from Barkers Locksmiths replied to my email the day before to arrange an appointment for the following morning. He arrived when he said he would and replaced the broken lock on our front door quickly and without fuss. As we already had a replacement lock barrel, he only asked for a call-out fee, despite having to do the work of removal and replacement. He answered all the questions we asked in an easy to understand manner, was friendly. It was obvious where he was from because he had the firm's name on his jumper and on his van. Very satisfied.
Had an issue where my door locks were broken, Geoff came out straight away, found the problem and fixed it straight away as well as checking the door and the other mechanisms were ok. Geoff was very friendly and informative and talked me through what he was doing and why. Would highly recommend.
Geoff came out as promised to replace my lock when the key had broken inside it. He arrived on time, carried out a very thorough job, cleaned up afterwards and charged a very reasonable price. I'll use his services again should the need arise and would not hesitate to recommend him.
Offers a first class service.
Geoff Hagin was most helpful and did a good job. He was very informative about the types of locks we could have fitted to help me decide.
Prompt response. Very helpful on additional security advice.

Very professional and efficient. Would recommend to family and friends.
Geoff came and explained about different locks for various doors I needed doing. Very thorough. Booked him to do front door lock. Very good job done. Tidied up after himself. Fair price would use again.
Most comprehensive advice and punctuality.
Overall, I found Geoff very pleasant to deal with. He responded immediately to my phone call and even though he had other jobs to complete, agreed to come over the same day. He also gave me a further call when he was on his way. On the job itself, he was very knowledgeable and very thorough and spent time explaining the options. Geoff also made sure that everything was as he'd found it, leaving the place clean and tidy. He explained the rate for the job at the outset and we settled on a very good final price at the end. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending him.
Excellent service prompt response, very detailed explanation of why the locks required changing very pleasant person.
Very courteous young man, arrived on time. Tidy worker and conscientious in detail. Reasonable rates and left customer more confident with the security provided.
Geoff attended promptly following my phone call and worked until after 22:00 to un-jam and replace the lock on my front door. I would highly recommend him.
Punctual, reliable, friendly would use him again without question.
I have had three separate jobs completed by Geoff, one to stop front door of the apartment building being deadlocked. I can honestly say that on each of the occasions that Geoff has been out, he has done superb quality work. He is a perfectionist and besides that a considerate worker. He won't let you down and I'm sure you will not be disappointed with the work he carries out.
I would highly recommend Barkers Locksmiths, they were prompt, polite, reasonably priced and very efficient. A job well done with no fuss or hassle.
I am writing regarding a lock replacement that Geoff Hagin from Barkers Locksmiths recently performed for me. Geoff was punctual and professional. His work demonstrated care about ensuring everything that could be done to make the lock more secure, was done. Including identifying and reinforcing a weak point on the door, which I had not been aware of. Thus going beyond the requirements of the requested job, to ensure a truly high quality out-come. A quick survey of the other locks around the premises was both informative and reassuring that no other obvious vulnerabilities were present. I would not hesitate to recommend Geoff and Barkers Locksmiths to family, friends and other businesses.
