Can anybody recommend a locksmith they've used recently. Checked recommendations, but last post I could find was over a year ago. Just wanted to check if anybody has used one recently they would recommend. Many thanks

If Palace is handy for you, these guys are in the triangle http://www.duffells....contact_us.html

If they can't recommend a locksmith, no-one can.

or ask at Hollybush Stores - they recommended Andrew Wing to us, who was excellent.

search in the Recommendations for Household Services thread.

Mods - can you move this thread to link in there?

(Our mods council us to: 'Please check that a topic isn't already listed before starting a new one.' in red letters. You do that by typing the word in to the search box. It keeps our forum easier to read and the information in find-able places)

Thanks mods, but perhaps link it to an existing Locksmith thread like this http://www.virtualno...__fromsearch__1 ,
so the information is retrievable?

That's what makes us humans extra successful- we can learn from past history and access knowledge from previous generations. The internet is supposed to accelerate that even more. ;)

I'd been meaning to dig out Andrew Wing's mobile number - here it is - 07733 272 077.

I can't recommend him highly enough - and do mention Virtual Norwood if you get in touch with him, as he's a big fan of the site. :)

Another recommendation for Andrew Wing. I called him yesterday, he arrived this morning early, and was superb. Excellent job, and cleaned up as well. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the recommendation, I used him today and he was fab! It was very last minute, and he was very professional and friendly.

I also spoke to Andrew, who couldn't do the work, but he was very friendly and professional too.

Would like to also mention Andrew Wing.  Just used his services for the second time in three years and he really is exceptional.  Very polite and pleasant, he completed the task for less than he'd originally quoted on the phone.  Then when I asked him about how much it would cost to get new locks fitted on some windows as I'd lost the original key, rather than fob me off with a load of expensive new locks he gave me a free key from a box of spares he carries around.  Wish I could find contacts in other trades fields that are as good and honest as him.
