First Response Locksmiths was formed after working in the family business for over ten years. Our family had a small locksmiths business in Sheffield that our Dad started in 1981. Once we had finished school we started work for our Dad.
Over the years we happily worked there learning and honing our skills as locksmiths. We learnt everything we could, it was a very busy time.
After our Dad decided to retire we bought him out of the business and decided to take it in another direction. After moving to Treswell in 2007 we decided to close the store and go mobile. With my brother covering South Yorkshire and myself covering Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire we had really good coverage and we decided we needed a re-launch. First Response was born.
As well as learning the trade from our dad we also learnt good old fashioned values. Treat the customer well, do a good job and charge a fair price. This has served us well. A lot of people now are just out for the quick money. They want to do the least amount of work for the biggest amount of money. We are different. Most of our business comes from repeat customers and referrals. We believe this happens because not only do we do a good job but the service we offer and aftercare once we have finished is more like a luxury car brand than locksmiths. We are always there on the end of the phone day or night to help our customers. We decided to back this up with a 5 year no catch guarantee.
Here at First Response Locksmiths our business is truly a family affair. With a total of five people who are all related working here we are a close knit group that share the same ethics and values. With myself and my brother the locksmiths and our wives and our sister running the business you can rest assured that if you get in touch with First Response we will treat you like you are a member of the family.
The territory we cover is split into two halves. I cover the eastern side from Worksop over to Lincoln. This includes Retford, Worksop, Doncaster, Mansfield, Newark, Lincoln, Gainsborough and Scunthorpe. My brother covers the Western side which is Rotherham, Sheffield, Chesterfield and Barnsley. We will only take a job if we can get there within 45 minutes. On 80% of our jobs we are their within 30 minutes. This means that when you need us we will be there for you and there on time.
We have two depots where we store all our stock, one in Lincolnshire and one in South Yorkshire. As well as giving us somewhere to work from this allows us to hold a lot of stock and because we can store a lot of stock we can deal with the manufacturers. This allows us to buy stock a lot cheaper and we can pass the savings on to you the customer.
We are a truly local locksmith business. We offer the local communities an invaluable service that we don’t charge scandalous prices. We are NOT a big national company trying to pass themselves off as local businesses. They advertise on google with taglines such as "local locksmith" or "no call charges". They aren’t and they do.
If you decide you want or need a locksmith you cannot go far wrong by giving us a call. We will treat your home like our own and we will not charge you scandalous prices to get you in your house or for anything else for that matter.
