Steve our manager is also out and about fitting locks too, we all work, we don’t just sit in an office, each one of us are out and about each day, that’s why we don’t have a land line, its needless expense and we don’t man an office as a 24 hour office would hike up our prices, we also don’t offer a shop service as we are a mobile company, working from our vans and this helps keep our locksmith pricing down.


We also offer a “flying locksmith” service; this is a motorcycle rider who is a locksmith and can get through traffic fast and get to your emergency locksmith issues as soon as possible. We also offer a 4x4 off road access for remote work and getting to people when we have deep snow or flooding.


So give us a call today, let’s see if we can help in anyway. Call Steve Taylor, manager on 07525639943 or email Gateshead Locksmith Service at

Why Choose Taylors Locksmiths Gateshead Locksmith Service

Taylors Locksmiths of Gateshead was founded in 1948 by the late John Taylor and eventually his 2 sons and it is now owned and operated by his grandson Steve Taylor since 2013 with his own son now a locksmith taking Taylors into its 4th generation of locksmiths to serve the Tyne and Wear area and Newcastle down to Durham. . 

Taylors Locksmiths has gone through many changes in its time, from a small shop where Argos now stands to becoming mobile by the 1970s as mobile locksmiths with our little yellow vans with Taylor and Son's Locksmiths written on the side in a brown and green branding. Very 1970s style. Over the years we had small market stalls cutting keys to almost becoming obsolete once the late John Taylor, the founder was ill. It was at a time when Steven had left University and was struggling to find work in the Northeast. John also known as Grandpa sold the idea to Steven that with his skills of web design, business management and of course his skills as a locksmith as Steven has worked with his dad Julian since he was 11 years old, helping out by the time he was 13 he was working the weekends in the shop, it was his first job when he left school before going to collage and on to university where he studied business. John convinced Steven that he could run the business. Steve Taylor took over the business in 2013 and launched its first website. That Website served us well until August 2023 when the provider went out of business and this new website was launched. Under the management of Steven the business now has a team of 10 master locksmiths, head locksmiths and engineers along with one of the oldest locksmith training companies in the UK that has taught locksmithing since 1981 known as Gateshead Locksmith Training.
