LocksOnline was founded in 1999 by Darrel Walters and the Walters Group when it launched its first website onto the internet, selling all types of locks and security related devices. The Walters Group has been trading as a security company in the Pembrokeshire Area since 1989. Giving over 20 years of expertise to customer's requirements puts LocksOnline at the forefront of customer service as well as value for money.
We run our website like you would a shop on the high street, offering live online customer service through our online chat system. We have continued to sell online for the last ten years by providing a service that you would expect from any quality main street shop and offer that personal touch that is often missing when shopping online.
LocksOnline trades as a separate company in its own right but can call upon expertise from engineers of the Walters Group. LocksOnline is a legitimate e-commerce trading company that is VAT registered, registered with the Office of Fair Trading to offer consumer credit and is 'Check Rate' accredited to show consumers that we are a creditworthy company.
LocksOnline has also won the E-Business and Technology Award as judged by the Welsh Assembly, which is a testament to the hard work the team has done both in e-commerce and customer service.
When choosing a company to trade with, what matters it is what our customers say, and you can preview customer feedback on our testimonials page which demonstrates that we are winners in our field, provide excellent service and have a quality choice of over 10,000 items listed on our site.
