I can highly recommend Hales Locksmiths. I got a prompt response to my initial enquiry via messaging, We arranged a visit the next day and Shane kept in touch so I knew when to expect him. On arrival Shane explained the potential work, explained the anticipated costs up front and then completed the job within the hour. Excellent communication and service and a problem resolved without undue stress! (Reviewed June 2023)
We recently found it impossible to lock our (15 year old) front door. Shane, from HalesLocks, was able to diagnose the problem over the phone, quoted the probable price to replace the entire locking mechanism, and arrived with us with 20 minutes. He had managed to find a replacement mechanism, which he fitted within half an hour. He then went above and beyond what he'd promised (hence his description as a Master Locksmith?) and adjusted all the hinges on the door, re-aligning it so it fitted better than it ever had. He finally cleaned the door, tidied up any mess made and charged exactly what he'd quoted by phone. Shane was an absolute pleasure to deal with, and I've have no reservations about recommending him and his firm. (Reviewed October 2022)

First class service from a professional locksmith. Cost of repair in line with phone quotation given before visit. (Reviewed August 2021)
I managed to break the handle of my lock from the inside. Contacted Hales Locks & within the hour Shane was replacing my lock. Although the lock was smaller than the original he made good on the door frame & fixed it so we could keep the same keys! Fabulous & friendly service. Would definitely recommend. (Reviewed July 2021)
Prompt service - the locksmith came within 30 minutes to help an elderly neighbour. He explained possible charges and sorted out the problem quickly & efficiently. (Reviewed March 2021)
Used HalesLocks when my tenants were locked out after the key broke in the lock. Service was superb - friendly and responsive (property was accessed in about half an hour), and additional work to replace the worn lock carried out in the same visit. Service was good value, invoicing very prompt and easy to settle. Would recommend these guys without hesitation. (Reviewed February 2021)
As we were completing on our house purchase i got in touch with Shane over WhatsApp earlier in the week to ask for a quote. Happy with his competitive pricing (I checked on the master locksmith association website) we asked if he could come over on the day we got our keys to change the locks. Not knowing the time we'd get them Shane just told us to let him know when we're ready and he'll come over. He was with us within 30mins (we're in Dartford). As first time buyers he educated us on the importance of security and didn't pressure us to get the most expensive options but explained the pros and cons of each but made clear it was our choice. It was a lovely experience and so easy for us on what is a stressful day for most people. Highly recommend and will definitely use him again! (Reviewed January 2021)

Shane did a free call out to assess the problem (our back door wouldn't unlock) and opened the door quickly with tools and showed me what had broken. New lock ordered and made safe overnight then promptly fixed the next day. Lovely bloke. Very respectful of the property and a member of master locksmiths and other important bodies.

Shane was very quick to reply to my call and arrived promptly. Excellent service fitting a new lock. (Reviewed October 2018)
In a rush to get out I locked myself out leaving a key on the inside of the door..
I called another less reputable locksmith who was cheaper but insisted I had to have the lock drilled out?!
I called Shane who was professional from the very start, he arrived quickly and explained the options, I liked that he checked for ID from me before he gained entry to the house and he displayed his ID all of the time. He got straight to work and opened the door in less than five min (no drilling locks). He ensured that the door worked correctly before he left.
First class service from a genuine professional locksmith, yes it was more money than the first one but worth every penny for the service received. Thanks (Reviewed September 2018)

Good services (Reviewed March 2018)
I found the service to attend my property for a full security survey was carried out in a very efficient way and the advice given was most comprehensive. I instructed Mr Hales to carry out his recommendations to secure my property to a good standard, which he completed in a very tidy and efficient manner.
He upgraded my existing locks to conform with British Standards and to the requirements of my insurers, as well as fitting additional locks as needed.
The pricing was very competitive with other quotes I had received and his final bill was very reasonable.
I would have no compunction in recommending Hales Locks to anyone. (Reviewed March 2018)
It was a pleasure doing business with Shane Hales and I would certainly use this company again. (Reviewed March 2018)
