Customer reviews for this trader
Richard has been fantastic from start to finish, his work is brilliant and he even noticed and fixed another issue with the door that we hadn't noticed ourselves. I would certainly recommend him to anybody who requires a locksmith.
Richard responded to my initial enquiry really quickly and visited us to assess the job and provide a quote, which was reasonable. When Richard came to complete the work he kept me fully informed and was friendly. He was also very accommodating in fixing a new handle to an external door which we had purchased independently but not got around to replacing - he even swapped it free of charge for one from his own stock as we had purchased the wrong one and could no longer return it. Would definitely use Richard again and would recommend.
Brilliant service from Richard. Had a lock that had failed … wouldn't unlock. Replaced quickly whilst being a lock that he did not have in stock. All resolved. Really efficiently done and really friendly. I called Richard from Trusted Trader on Derbyshire.gov website and was all good.
My back door lock was fixed quickly and now works nicely, pleasant man and the dog liked him as well, thank you.
Richard attended within the hour and quickly identified the fault and explained how he would resolve it. He had the required parts in his van and explained the shortcomings of my old lock and how the replacement was a security upgrade. He was polite and professional throughout and gave you confidence in the service he provided. Price was fine and I would strongly recommend him.
After an emergency locksmith provided by our insurance did a temporary fix on our broken front door, DHR locksmiths completed the job with a permanent repair. Fitted us in very quickly but had to order a part for our older door. Work completed efficiently and at a reasonable price.
Richard did a good job replacing three mortise locks. He was friendly and courteous. He left everything clean and tidy.
Richard came at short notice to replace a faulty front door lock. At the same time he examined a sticky lock in a garage door, dismantled it and thoroughly cleaned it. I found him to be extremely professional and informative. I believe he charged a fair rate and would certainly use him again and would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
I had a faulty door which required work so contacted Richard who came out and sorted the problem. I was very happy with both the job and Richard himself and can highly recommend.
Richard visited my 89 year old mother today and provided a superb service, he rang me when she didn't answer the door, fitted a new barrel thumb lock, oiled the hinges and checked that mum could operate it. He repaired the bathroom handle and hovered up. Mum felt very comfortable with him and his telephone manner is very professional. Thank you Richard for doing a brilliant job and giving us all peace of mind. We'd have no hesitation in asking you back if other problems occur and highly recommend you to anyone needing a locksmith.
I needed to find a locksmith for today when my front door would not lock. I choose DHR from trusted trader and I was not disappointed. Quick response, excellent service and reasonable price.

Richard has done some work for me before of which I was highly satisfied with his work. Unfortunately for me I was burgled last week and after contacting Richard he was with me within 20 minutes! Apart from the good quality of work, his rates are very reasonable and above all he is very friendly. Thank you so much Richard.
Was very happy with the service from DHR Locksmiths. very professional work carried out, good communication and very Covid aware. Would highly recommend.
Our front door locking mechanism had jammed. Richard did a very quick and efficient job in opening it, replacing the mechanism and fitting a new, more secure key. He had all the necessary spares with him at a very reasonable price. I know where to go next time.
Started with one lock renewed and ended up having five locks renewed, great job and did not try to rip me off, will have back if needed to repair my house locks. If you just want a good job doing, call DHR cannot say this about some tradesmen 100%.
Mr Turner was very helpful, even though he was on holiday, correctly identifying and sourcing a replacement for our unusual lock. When he came out to fit the lock, he proved to be very pleasant and apparently trustworthy - strengths which are to be welcomed in a locksmith! I would recommend him to anybody.
Quick response, friendly service and addressed all issues required. Would recommend and use again.
Very satisfied with the service provided by Richard. We had a problem with the front door lock. He came out at a moment's notice at the end of his working day. Was friendly, courteous and effective, His charge was acceptable. Highly recommend this trader.
Found Richard very professional. He rang us back and turned up at exactly the time he said he would. We recommend him highly as he fixed our lock in no time with no mess. A pleasant man. Trustworthy.
Came out on call after I closed my door and the lock mechanism broke meaning I couldn't get back in the house. The door was fixed and it works better than before. Top job. Would highly recommend.
Extremely quick and efficient, friendly service. Very careful with social distancing, very professional. Richard braved the traffic on the hottest day of the year so far, came straight out and mended the lock on my back door so I could get out. Thank you, really recommend this business.
Extremely friendly and amazing service given by DHR locksmiths. Highly recommend and professional. Came when they said they would. Would definitely use their services again. Thanks for a job well done.
Richard was very efficient and helpful after my key broke in the lock. He quickly rectified my problem and I would highly recommend his services.
I had used this locksmith before to replace 3 locks on moving into my bungalow approx. a year ago. This time I had broke the mechanism on a conservatory door lock the teeth on the gear cogs had broken off and jammed the handle. I had kept the business card from the gentleman's previous visit. What a relief, I phoned and he came out the same day. My property was insecure, a very polite and professional man, that advised and changed the door lock, also advising, to place two bolts to the opposite half of the door, for added security. All done politely, professionally and at a decent price, with no mess to clean up, equals really well done.
Brilliant response from Richard so that we could lock our front door tonight. He literally went the extra mile for us coming at 7.30 after a long day and an hour to get from one side of the county to the other. Reassuringly thorough about Covid hygiene and distancing, but friendly with it. Definitely recommend and will use again.
Very quick response, did a good job and was very friendly and polite. He took every care with cleaning and social distancing. I'll definitely call him again.
Richard was very prompt, quickly diagnosed the issue, which required a new gearbox to be ordered. He returned two days later to fit the new part, charged a fair price and left the area clean and tidy. Very satisfied!
Accidentally locked ourselves out of the house with an old Yale style latch. Phoned DHR who came within 30 minutes and got us back inside with no damage all within 10 minutes. Very pleasant and personable, very quick, and got us out of a sticky situation. Many thanks. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend in future.
I contacted Richard yesterday afternoon as I wanted an internal door lock fitting as soon as possible. He has been and sorted this for me this morning. I found Richard to be polite, punctual and reasonably priced. Thank you Richard.
I found DHR Locksmiths in the Peak Advertiser. The locksmith was helpful from first contact, arrived on time, and carried out the work swiftly and competently. I felt the charge for a replacement lock was very reasonable. I would definitely use them again.
In the course of my work I had to find a locksmith at short notice. I found this company to be very understanding of my needs and able to respond quickly and efficiently. I would not hesitate to use this company in the future.
Richard was very professional. I worry in general, but especially around locks and safety. He was very reasonable and just nice to know it's someone with a good reputation locally .
Very good, replaced my front door lock very quickly. Would recommend and use again should there be any further issues.
I should have submitted this review several weeks ago, which proves I'm much slower than Richard the locksmith. We had a problem with the door which couldn't be opened at all, exit was only possible via a window. Called for help and he arrived promptly, even taking the trouble to ring saying he was delayed in road works. I knew that feeling. Watching him having to prise open the door was not a pleasant sight. Before long, a new lock was fitted and everything was back to normal and at a reasonable price. As luck would have it, a couple of weeks later, the new lock broke and the key was jammed on the outside. Richard came as soon as possible, replaced the lock and showed the failure of the old one. He didn't ask for any additional payment for the second visit and his workmanship I can only rate as 100%. He is a very pleasant guy so I can thoroughly recommend him.
I called DHR locksmiths at 8.10am after my key broke off in the front door, leaving me unable to go out. The job was completed within 45 minutes of me calling! Super efficient, friendly and a good price. I would definitely use DHR locksmiths again.
A brilliant job done with great efficiency by a friendly man, Richard. Many thanks for a job well done.
Visited promptly and fitted new barrel lock to an old door. We had trouble operating it initially, but he came back within an hour of calling and made a slight adjustment, which has made it far easier to operate. No charge for second visit. Friendly and polite, and turned up when he said he would - what more could you want?
Excellent service, good price and very knowledgeable fixed our front door mechanism and fitted new barrel would definitely recommend.
He came out in may to change a broken lock which broke again. No idea if it was faulty or something we had done but he came out and changed it free of charge which we were not expecting at all. Would highly recommend to anyone. Professional and polite
Very polite and helpful young man who turned up at very short notice to change my locks on my house to sort out a security issue. Would recommend this service and would use this Locksmith again. Thanks again.
Problem with back door, quickly resolved. Door adjusted to prevent problem occurring again. Very pleased with the service offered and would definitely use Richard in the future if the need arises.
Very good service and would highly recommend
Richard was very prompt in answering the problem and quick to do the job because he carried spare locks in his van. I would recommend him.
Excellent service-very efficient and personable tradesman.
He arrived a bit earlier than he said, which was good. He knows his stuff, fixed the problem in no time at all. Was polite and friendly and didn't feel like we were overcharged. Would recommend.
Just talking to him on the phone gave me the confidence to arrange to get Richard to look at our lock problem. We arranged a time and date that he would arrive and he kept to it. He completed the job and then cleaned up afterwards. Finally he made an adjustment to another door even though I only asked for his advice on how to make the adjustment myself. Would definitely recommend DHR Locksmiths.
Richard from DHR Locksmiths was fabulous, he came out very quickly and sorted my lock within the hour. A great service! My door has been working perfectly since.
A satisfactory job. A personable workman.
We had our locks changed on the doors. Richard did a really good job. Very nice person. I contacted him by phone, he was able to come the same week. I would recommend him.
