Andrew was working in a factory when he saw an advert for an apprentice locksmith in 2001 and, wanting a trade, has kept with it ever since finishing his four-year apprenticeship
He now has 19 years of experience and can handle any locksmithing job – from domestic to commercial to automotive.
Andrew moved to Daylesford in 2015, following his parents who moved to the town just over 10 years ago.
“I was visiting my parents pretty often and every time I arrived I just loved the town and the region more and more,” he said.
“It’s such a great community and everyone is so friendly. So I made the decision to move as well and I couldn’t be happier.”
Andrew said once here he realised that Daylesford had most business needs covered but was lacking a locksmith.
“I realised then that I could offer the community my services rather than people having to travel to Ballarat or Melbourne, and also being able to call a local locksmith when needed.
“I cover pretty much anywhere within 30 minutes of Daylesford so Trentham, Hepburn, Clunes, Creswick and Ballan.
“My service is 24/7 so I am on call for all and any emergencies – which is great for my clients – not that too many lock themselves out these days!
“And with my 19 years’ experience I can offer really quality workmanship and same day service along with that 24-hour callout.
“I hope that people put my number in their phone now because you never know when you are going to need the service of a locksmith!”
Just some of the services Andrew provides are: locks repaired, deadlocks fitted, keys cut, window locks, locks opened, safe sales and service, door closers, locks re-keyed and digital locks.
