My lock was dodgy and I was worried about being unable to open the door. The locksmith came and found that the lock was fine but a fixing screw was loose causing the lock to jam against the door frame. So he replaced the screw with a much longer one and adjusted the hinges on the door. I was very pleased that he didn't take the more expensive option of replacing the lock for £200 or so! I though it was honest of him. Also he came straight after being on holiday.

Bowdens were recommended to me by a lockfitters in Bristol when a previous doorlock failed - leaving me to access my home through the window. Despite my saying this wasn't a real emergency, the engineer came within two hours. He was charming and very knowledgable, a safe pair of hands. He opened and removed the failed lock, and then installed an interim lock, until the better spec (ABS approved lock, and 'euro profile' door handles) was in stock. Within a week he was back to fit this top spec lock (suitable for insurance purposes) with smart new fittings. It was a great job, and a genuine pleasure.

Our front door lock was not working as it should, so I contacted Bowden Locksmiths and arranged for a visit. The locksmith, Carlo, turned up on time and quickly identified the problem. He replaced the cylinder but didn't stop there. He adjusted all other parts of the locking system on the door so that they were working perfectly. I was very impressed with how professional he was. The price was very reasonable, but because of the low temperature on the day Carlo's card reader was not working. This wasn't a problem. Carlo let the office know and I received a friendly call from Lynda to take the payment. The service provided by this firm was first class at every stage.

Following the passing of my wife, I was anxious to change the man entrance lock. I was not sure how many keys were in existence, and I was going away leaving the house empty. I contacted Bowden's as soon as they opened, and within an hour they came and carried out the work. It was an excellent job, and very speedily and sympathetically carried out.

Getting a lock changed at short notice can be a financially hazardous situation. I have dealt with Bowdens Locksmiths for many years and can say without hesitation that they can be relied on to do a good job at a fair price.

Bowden were helpful, efficient, flexible, understanding and pleasant from my first phone call to their shop asking for advice through to the completion of the work which was done in good time and very well. It helped give me peace of mind in what could have been a very stressful situation. The price seemed entirely reasonable too.

It should be a simple job (2 new BSS mortice locks to match existing, both to pass same key) but diy stores were confused and local locksmiths unhelpful. I spoke to Nick, posted the lock that needed replacement and in a short time had two locks plus 10 keys. The locks were same make and fitted perfectly. Splendid postal service at affordable prices!
