The competition, which attracted more than 2,500 public votes, was judged in collaboration with comedian and pun enthusiast Darren Walsh. Surelock Homes emerged as the favorite, beating out other finalists such as Tikka Chance On Me and Prints Charming.

Surelock Homes is renowned for its reliable and superior locksmith services throughout East Sussex. The company prides itself on professional technicians who deliver exceptional work and maintain long-term relationships with loyal customers.

This year’s competition was part of Simply Business’s ‘You name it. We insure it’ TV campaign, featuring cleverly named British companies such as Pane in the Glass, Get Stuffed, Curl Up and Dye and Rough Around The Hedges.

Matt Triboulliard, owner of Surelock Homes, expressed his delight: “I was thrilled to be nominated for the Simply Business competition. It is an honor to win names from such an incredible list. Our unique name has generated a lot of attention and sales, with many people commenting or taking photos of our vehicle.”
