New member of the team!

A big day for Lockwise – today we welcomed Mark to the team as our new locksmith!

Mark brings heaps of new experience that is going to be really valuable, and can also help carry on giving Hawkes Bay the quality locksmith service that we’re becoming well known for.

With more and more referrals coming our way we thought it was time to get an extra pair of hands in. It’s exciting to be growing, but at the same time we want to be absolutely sure we still give the best service we can.

We think Lockwise stands out because of the quality of our customer service, so we really wanted to pick the right person to help us out. We think Mark is the sort of person who will go the extra mile to do a good job, and is going to fit right into the company.

Mark’s work is going to be mostly residential locks around Napier and Hastings, so if you see him around say hello!

If we had a bit more hair, we’d be letting it down and celebrating right now. Instead, we’re giving away a free bottle of premium Moet & Chandon champagne to celebrate. And all you have to do is find it.

Somewhere hidden on our website, you’ll find a little bottle like this:champagne

Click on it before end of June and you’re in the draw to win it – easy!

And watch this space – big news coming up soon.
