Terry Able Safes and Locks was established in 1969. Terry opened a small shop in Temple Fortune NW11 to bring knowledge and expertise to the local community.
Working with local police and the public to increase awareness of burglary and increasing rates of thefts and helping to find ways to secure residential and commercial premises.
Safe installation was his speciality and has installed many within London’s casinos. Working from this shop for 10 years, his intentions to grow the business was realised and swiftly brought a move to St Johns Wood. Here he worked out of the shop using traditional bench locksmith skills, cutting keys for local residents and businesses. When he was called upon he would leave the shop and attend emergency call outs, burglary repair works and attend bailiff repossessions.
He built a foundation for his business from working with small and large estate agents all over London which led him to realise that being in a shop was not the answer.
