As a local locksmith based in Barnet I am always keen to be completely transparent and I really enjoy getting to know my customers. In fact this is one of the “Joys of Being A Locksmith” as you can read about in this post.
In past “Dairy of a Locksmith” blog posts I have shared lots of information such as;
- My journey to becoming a Locksmith
- How I became MLA qualified
- Starting my business IKS Locksmiths
- Detailed insights into the work we do and how we do it
It is important to trust a locksmith. As you can read in this recent post using a National Locksmith company means that you will not necessarily know much about the individual dealing with your security.
In the spirit of my customers getting to know me as an individual I would like to take this opportunity to give an insight into me Martin, as a person and not just a locksmith, starting with my personal fact file.
Personal Fact File
I will be 38 this month
Married with 2 children (8 and 5). I have 1 sister.
Brought up in Finchley (My parents and my wife are from Northern Ireland).
Finchley and St Albans
Watching football (I support Manchester United)
I enjoy sharing my views on Talk Sport!
I love Thai food
None but I used to have a cat and do love dogs
London of course! Marrakech is the most exciting place I have been and I really love New York and Edinburgh.
Travelling round Australia for a year was a great experience.
White collar boxing win in 2015. I have hung up my gloves now.
Like Rory Bremner, Heston Blumenthal and Will.i.am I was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult. It actually helps me in my work and it is much easier now that I know I have it.
To travel more again and spend more time with my family
Ok this is scraping the surface but if there is anything else you would like to know or ask me about please do ask and I will be happy to share. I understand that when it comes to security you want to know who is dealing with yours. Please just don’t judge me on the football team I support.
When looking for someone to deal with your home security don’t just pick your nearest locksmith without doing some research into the company. To find a trustworthy locksmith search by your postcode on the MLA website and always check the locksmith reviews and recommendations before going ahead with work.
