Customer Reviews


Chris -Sudbury

Safe Fitted on a Sunday!
Excellent speed of service and quality job done. Graham from Actfast Locksmiths installed our safe that complied with our insurance company at a great price. Great advice too.

Brian - Braintree

Broken Patio Door Lock
I had a problem locking my 30 year old patio door and after looking on the internet for a local locksmith I called Actfast. Graham and Suzi arrived within 90 mins as promised and Graham quickly diagnosed and fixed the problem.
Throughout they were friendly and professional and I have no hesitation in recommending Actfast.

Mary -Colne Engaine

A Monday morning and the front door lock breaks! Phoned Actfast Locksmiths and Graham and Sue arrived when they said they would. Good, friendly professional service with a smile. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Actfast to others.

Tom Braintree

Locking system UPVC
I contacted Actfast Locksmiths at 8am - Graham. I discussed the problem briefly and he gave a possible cost based on my description of the problem which was that the lock had jammed on the back door so we could not open it. Graham arrived after a couple of hours even earlier than he had said. On seeing the difficulty, he successfully and more quickly than we thought completed the work. I must say from my point of view he completed the work in a very professional manner and indeed my wife and I are pleased and should we have any future problems with locking mechanisms we will certainly call Graham.

Rita - Halstead

Excellent and friendly service. Arrived promptly when I had problems with my back door not locking. Would strongly recommend them,

Mick - Sudbury

Helpful, efficient and friendly
Having moved house we had a number of issues with locks. We approached Actfast as they are recommended by Which Local? Graham and Sue visited promptly and advised us on the best way to resolve all the problems and make the place more secure, as well as compliant with home insurance requirements. Graham fixed everything the same afternoon, and we felt he gave us good value for money. We would have no hesitation in recommending his services to others.

John - Braintree

Very Professional and reliable
From my initial telephone call asking for the work through to Graham doing the work requested was excellant. Graham was very helpful and professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending Actfast as a fast reliable service and the prices for the work were very fair

Richard - Witham

Professional and efficient
Actfast were prompt in responding to my query. Graham explained what was needed to ensure the property met insurance minimum standards. Standards of workmanship were excellent. I would highly recommend Actfast.

T Lacey - Sudbury

I couldn't have asked for more
Icalled this trader off the back of some positive feedback on Which? Local. Despite being based 20 miles away Graham Cooper willingly came on the only day I could manage for what was a case of securing a vacant property. He arrived on time, with all the necessary equipment and resolved every issue in the time available for the price he quoted, with a bit of extra advice/assistance thrown in along the way. Highly recommended.

Karen - Braintree

Excellent service
Actfast came out as soon as possible to fix a front door that had stuck open and may have ended up being an expensive UPVC replacement which they managed to fix on the spot as well asreplacing the back door barrel which had been sticking for some time.
Very reasonable prices and very happy with the service.
Cant recommend them enough A+++

David - Halstead

A very good professional service from Graham and Sue. The gearbox on my UPVC door had broken (yep I forced the door shut when it was sticking) leaving the door fully locked and unable to open it! Graham quickly unlocked the door and was able to replace the broken gearbox using parts he had 'on board'. He also upgraded my barrel locks at my request and at a very reasonable price. Much cheaper than a new door and with no need to damage the door or frame. Now Graham has aligned the hinges he has cured the sticking! I will be using again if I have a need for a locksmith. Thank you.
