I'm so proud of my company’s achievement, which I would not have been able to do without you, thank you.

I am working during the COVD19 Pandemic - I will ask obvious questions: Can I work a minimum distance of 2 - 5 meters from people, preferably alone in a room, corridor, hallway, porch, driveway etc.     Doors, handles, locks will need to be wiped down, sprayed with anti-bac, I will also do this on arrival and departure.  I love animals, but during this time, can they please be kept away while I work. I love my tea and kind offers, but at this time I will turn down these offers. I want to be as safe as possible for both of us.

I am free of any issues, but cannot take any chances, if I feel that my work space is not safe for us, I will advice you of any issues.

"Let Goldi Locks pick your locks!" Highly experienced and qualified engineer with exceptional people skills. I'm also with Trading Standards, we are the real thing when it comes to a trusted and vetted trader. With over 30 years experience in fixing, making things work and understanding the repair required-  nothing is impossible. My background is engineering at the highest level, I chose this career as a locksmith to work from home and support my family. I didn't want to travel anymore, I enjoy working the local area, so set up Goldi-Locks in 2002 and formed a limited company in 2004. I left my career as a project manager for Marconi working in civil and structural engineering , designing and implementing the rollout of national mobile networks such as 2G, 3G etc.


Please book me in if possible as I am busy most days and get booked up quickly. I try not to work over weekends as my weeks are so busy, however please feel free to Email me or give me a call. If you get my answer machine please leave a message, and if you get the office, they will take any details and pass these straight to me. I don't answer when driving, and you will get diverted.


I have access to a massive stock of locks, keys, safes, access control, so can get almost anything. I complete 90% of my jobs in one visit, the 10% I don't, are specialist work where re-visits are needed, or I need several days to complete a job.
Works I do include: Doors unlocked, replacement locks, keys cut on site, PVC door lock upgrades to insurance requirements, insurance surveys. safes supplied and fitted. Safes opened. Key safes. All types of lock cylinder from standard to fully restricted. All levels of mortise lock from 5 lever British Standard BS3261 to internal 3, 4 and 5 lever locks. Suited lock systems (blocks of flats or residential where special keys & locks are required). Digital locks, ...I cover everything to do with locks, please call me or Email me if you have any questions.


I also supply and fit vehicle tracking systems for any type of vehicle, commercial only.
I cover a good area, but to give an idea, places such as Poole, Bournemouth, Ferndown, Verwood, West moors, Ringwood, Highcliffe, New Milton, Barton on Sea, Corfe Mullen, Lytchet Minster, Wimborne, Corf Castle, Swanage and many of the surrounding areas. If you think I don't cover an area, just call and ask and I will give you a straight answer or recommend another locksmith that can help you.
I do little jobs as well: desks, cabinets, bureaus opened, often I can hand make keys to the locks if possible. Removal of padlocks, keys cut to code. Broken key extraction. 

Goldi-Locksmith offers an out of hours Emergency locksmith service where possible.
