  • Front door broken lock

    10Verified Review

    Phil came over really quickly after we called and fixed/replaced our broken lock on the front door. He also found a problem with the back door and fixed that too for no extra charge! Amazing service, and lovely guy. Would recommend without hesitation!

  • Multiple doors inc patio lock repaired

    10Verified Review

    Phil is a courteous and skilled locksmith who was able to give me a very reasonable quote for multiples fixes. We had a locksmith before who was also very skilled, however, Phil's quote was much more reasonable. Cost aside, you can tell Phil takes pride in his work, will assist in any way possible and is an honest tradesman. We were very happy with the result of his work and very appreciative.

  • Front door lock repair

    10Verified Review

    What brilliant service! I left an enquiry with Goldi Locks and he was at my property within half an hour of this. He assessed the issue with my front door and let me know what he was going to do and how much I would be charged. He ordered the parts needed on the spot and was back to complete the work the next morning. An incredibly professional, speedy and friendly service.

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

"Let Goldi Locks pick your locks!" A highly experienced and qualified engineer with exceptional people skills.

As a heads up there is no existing qualification for a locksmith and nor is it a regulated trade, my qualifications are project management, Computer aided engineering, manufacturing and process, do not be miss led by the term "Qualified Locksmith"

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 senior project manager for Marconi, working in civil and structural engineering , designing and implementing the rollout of national mobile networks in GSM, 2G and 3G.

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 also offers an out of hours Emergency locksmith service where possible.
