Lewis Furlonger

What a person..... People think that super heros sleep after 11pm, but not him. Best service I ever had, life saver and brilliant person in once. People lock your houses and call this guy!!! Thank you again for your help!!!



Mark Osborne replaced 2 locks on my door as agreed however his after service is appalling as he never came back to fix the job. We agreed for him to come back and put a plate over my old lock in order to deactivate it. After multiple calls to him I was told each time he would come round the next day which he never did. I would therefore not recommend Mark Osborne unfortunately.



Friendly, polite, helpful and kept me fully updated throughout the process. Certainly recommend to others.



Very professional service
Hardly recommended






Quick response. Cheerful and competent Locksmith. Provided clear unbiased view of the options open to me.
The end result is a beautifully fitted lock with a 10 year warranty. Great service.



After the cylinder in the lock on the front door failed at 10pm on a Saturday night, Mark arrived quickly and got us into the house, identified the failed lock, and had it swapped out with five new keys in the space of about 10 minutes. Would definitely recommend.


Paul Baker

Mark came out very quickly to help sort out our broken doorlocks. He was very helpful in giving us a range of options and useful maintenence tips. The Bill was also very reasonable.


Paul McMullen

A rather belated "Thank you" to Mark Osborne who came out the same day to close and lock our back double glazed door. It hadn't been opened for at least two years until our Grand-daughter decided to try! It opened but couldn't close or lock again. Along came Mark and worked his miracles!! Whilst with us he even tightened the door handle of our patio door. What a hero. Many thanks Mark


Wendy McGovern

Unbelievable level of service from Mark at Lockforce. Very professional.

Great response from mark this afternoon, within 30 mins he arrived for in indoors where I had locked my keys and car keys , thankyou


Carly Knight

Mark came out to me to fit new locks to my front and back doors as well as my garage.
Not only did he do an amazing job, fast and effective but he also gave all the door mechanisms a full clean up and service just because they needed it despite me only having paid for the locks to be changed!! He clearly takes his work seriously and I can say his cleanliness was impeccable too!! A* in my book and highly recommended.
Thanks Mark.

Poorly fitted handles on rear French door left massive holes on my door really hard to lock.



Arfan helped me out when I managed to lock my keys in the car. He provided a quote that was faster and better value than all the other local locksmiths I contacted. He then carried out the work efficiently and with a smile which made the whole experience infinitely less stressful.

Highly recommended, though I hope to not have to call him again! ;)
