Unfortunately only read the previous review after I had a very similar experience with this business. Needed help with a problem with a patio lock and thought I'd give a local supplier the business. I used to live in Walkinstown but don't anymore. I was under pressure to get the lock fixed as it is obviously a security issue and right before Christmas. They obviously play on this and charged me €85 for a new lock but it didn't fix the problem (easily only worth about €20). I have no idea what they were doing to get the new lock transferred over but I ended up getting the original lock fixed elsewhere but they refused to refund the money even though it was exactly as they had sold me.

Their customer service is pathetic. I gave them 2 opportunities to get an agreeable outcome and gave up. Do not take a chance with them. I only count myself lucky I wasn't dealing with a break in or something and feel sorry for anyone who would be under more pressure in such circumstances. Would like to think they would be able to cut keys at least, but based on the previous review they cannot even do this right. It doesn't surprise me in the least.

Avoid this company at all cost. Do not use them. Take the time to go somewhere else, you’ll be happy you did. There are two reasons for this but both boil down to one rationale; they are very unprofessional!
To start with, I needed spare keys cut for a new front door lock I had purchased. I was informed Crothers was the place to go, so I did. They didn’t have the key blanks there but I was told they would order them in after the weekend and would phone me; they never did. After contacting them four times over a week and a half, eventually, after being put on hold numerous times, I was informed that they didn’t have the key blanks I needed and were not going to get them in. However, I was also told that they might get some in after the New Year and to give them a call then. I believe that this is very poor customer service on many, many levels.
Secondly, I needed key blanks cut for my motorbike. I was in a hurry to get it done before the shops closed for Christmas. Therefore, I brought them to Crothers as they were the nearest place to me at the time. In fairness, the locksmith cut the first key fine, it worked. However, he messed up the second key and it didn’t work at all. They then tried to make the excuse that the bike manufacturer must’ve given me a wrong blank. When it transpired that the locksmith was indeed the individual responsible for breaking a key, which cost me €45, I was told that they had informed me, verbally, that they could not take responsibility for breaking my keys. This part is true, they did tell me that. However, they also told me that it never happens but its just something they are told to say. Well it did happen to me and now I’m down €45 and a bike key. When the individual in charge of the shop got involved, I was told in no uncertain terms that I had been warned and that Crothers would not take responsibility.

Now I ask you, what kind of professional tradesman doesn’t take responsibility for their work? The answer is, an unprofessional tradesman. Crothers were unhelpful, unprofessional and uncaring right from the start. I should’ve taken head with incident number one but I thought I’d give them another chance. I’m now out of pocket and down a key but at least I’ve learned my lesson.

Stay away from these unprofessional individuals and go somewhere else to do business with a company who take responsibility for their work and value their customers.
