Business Description
BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market Mario’s Keys Ltd, offers for sale due to our clients wish to now retire.

The highly regarded key cutting and locksmiths business is one of London's most established.  First opening its doors here in the 1980s and moved across the road to this shop in 1993 and purchased by our clients in 2006.

They offer a large range of keys, locks, security safes as well on site surveys for new locking systems and repairs.

The business is also a member of Trusted Traders.

Currently the business is split between 50% walk in retail customers looking for general key cutting, new or replacement locks to 50% commercial customers with key clients from the housing association, estate agents and the many landlords who own properties in the area.

Lock repairs and replacements are generally carried out in office hours and our client normally travels between 8-9 miles of the shop's location.
