Locksmiths in Bournemouth
827-829 Wimborne Road
Access Locksmiths was founded in 1998 by Mark Whettingsteel a locksmith who started his career as a trainee locksmith back in 1985. After working for a few other local locksmiths he decided that a new fresh approach was needed in the industry. In the spring of 1998 Mark started his own mobile locksmith and security business.
It was not long before Access Locksmiths became a limited company and opened it's first branch in Portswood Southampton in March 2000. We fast became known for our professional approach within the locksmithing industry and pride ourselves on our quality of work and good customer service.
With Director James Hollis on board, three engineers on the road and a knowledgeable team in branch, it proved to be a fast growing business. In 2005 Access Locksmith Ltd purchased key and lock supplies limited of Bournemouth, a company established in 1969 and gained an array of experienced staff with over 30 years of expertise. Access Locksmiths Ltd re-branded its trading name to Access Key and Lock.
In 2009 Access Key and Lock Purchased Centre Security limited, a company established in 1978 and gained yet another fantastic team of very experienced locksmiths plus two additional branches in Fareham and Southsea.
Collectively our team of Locksmith's are probably some of the best in the U.K, they have a wealth of knowledge in locksmithing, Architectural Ironmongery and all aspects of security with over 40 years experience in the trade.

I used this company to get a front door lock sorted out for an elderly lady. They attended within half an hour and repaired the lock at a very reasonable cost. For security they gave me the name of the engineer incase I had to go before he arrived. What service, a repair instead of a costly replacement. Would not hesitate to recommend them.

I called this firm to attend to a broken lock on the front door of a blind, elderly lady. They told me the name of their engineer attending for peace of mind for the lady. They said they would attend in 30 mins but were there in 20 mins. The door was fixed, no costly replacement lock. I would highly recommend this company.
