Hi Simon,

Thank you for the boots-I am really pleased withthem-they look like new!

If you don't mind having to post items back Iwould certainly prefer to send you any boot/shoes that need repair in thefuture as the quality and length of time in the South is nowhere near as good.(Timpson's wanted to send the boots away for up to two months with no idea ofcost).

Also, lady in the post office asked me to lether know how the boots turned out as she has some that need repairing. Are youhappy for me to give her your details?

Kind regards

After having searched the internet for a replacement key fob for my daughter's car, I came across "Keyishoes" website and after reading some of the testimonials that some of the customers has left I was very impressed and thought I would gfive Simon a call to see if I could get a replacement key.  I was not disappointed , the communication throughout was fantastic!  I turned up on the day I had pre-arranged and got my replacement key, as well as a day out in Carlisle which my wife and daughter thouroughly enjoyed.  I would not hesitate to recommend Simon and his business - Outstanding Customer Service

Extremely happy with the service you provided regarding my Timex Chronograph - very efficient and not expensive - unlike other outlets in the city.
Many thanks

I phoned Simon – living quite a way from Carlisle and as our discussions progressed on a Transponder key for my car it was becoming more likely (and he was aware of this) that I would more than likely have to shop closer to home on this one. BUT… despite all this Simon never waivered in offering patient, helpful practical and technical advice to assist me. Even to sending me a very clear and helpful email within minutes for me to consider.

So anyone coming to this website can rest assured in my personal opinion they are dealing with an efficient, friendly and genuine person who will do his best for all who visit, whether he gets the order or not.

In my book this is the mark of someone who would never knowingly let you down. Carlisle is lucky to have this man trading in that area. If I was living there he would definitely have got my business regarding the transponder key – no doubt about it.

Finally, “thanks Simon for all your advice – although I may have to go down the road you hinted at and trade a little closer to home” with a man offering what seemed to you a very fair and efficient service also in transponder keys.

All the very best for the future in all your business dealings.

A really helpful chap who will do all he can to oblige and is very pleasant with it. A rare lesson in customer care these days.

Just wanted to say ‘Thank you’ for a job well done and for commitment to customer service seldom seen.The cherry on the cake was when you voluntarily dropped the new key at my house saving me a trip to Homebase.
Ron Fitzpatrick – Carlisle

Just wanted to say a huge thankyou to Simon and the team at Keyishoes for sorting at my lost key so quickly and efficently, great service and reliable, highly recommended!!! A++++
Mark – Travelodge

I recently gave you a pair of boots that desperately needed heeling. I just want to say what a brilliant job you did and they are now as good as new.
Also how quickly and efficiently you did the job and value for money.
Again many thanks and I will definitely use you again.

A few days ago I gave Simon, of keyishoes, a carving knife that was becoming a little blunt. I had sharpened it a few times at home, which was ok, but the time had come to have it done professionally.
The end result was a job well done, carving meat is like slicing butter and slices are no longer like doorsteps and a joint now lasts a little longer, so the cost of sharpening the knife is now paying for itself with interest.
Many thanks Simon, I’ll keep counting my fingers from now on.
Allan Stevenson

Simon did a great job sharpening some old and trusted shears, they are like new and saved us a packet! A great service from friendly staff as well.
Joe Bell

Simon has done a fantastic job with my shoe repairs recently and the service is great. Delivered personally back to me the next day. What more could you ask for. Thanks Simon
David Allen

Having worked with Simon in his previous role, you know you are going to get a first class service. Its great that Simon comes to our David Allen office to collect the shoe repairs/dry cleaning etc and then comes and delivers it back. Great service and always with a smile.
Julie Campbell

It was becoming difficult to have quality shoes repaired. This really works. The pick up and drop of service is a positive bonus. Good service, good value.
Clive, Westward Forestry

When I asked Simon to renew a heel on a 25 year old pair of ski boots it didn’t phase him one bit.
The new heel looks solid and neat giving these boots a bit more life than ever expected.
Many Thanks
Stuart Miller

Brilliant dry cleaning service, really good job and a fast service too. Fantastic job on my shoes!

Fantastic job, thought my boots were for the bin, but they look like new again. Fast reliable and excellent service.
Thank you.
Sonia - Bluefin Insurance Services

I was very impressed with the brilliant service that Simon provides at a very reasonable price. I will certainly consider using his services in the future.

Dropped off two pairs of shoes at 10.00am and Simon delivered them back at 6.00pm. Fantastic service and he was able to assess what work was required and gave me a good indication of what I would get. The results were far better than I had expected. Will definitely use again for all his services.
Brilliant, thanks a lot Simon
Rob Stevens - IMS Consulting

Did a excellent job at changing the batterys and reprograming my key fob thanks!

Thank you so much for the new life that you and keyishoes have given to my favourite boots! Also for such a speedy service!

It was a pleasure to be able to benifit from the service Simon provides and we are please to see a man happy in his work.
We look forward to taking advantage of this service in the future.

Had boots to re-heel at home for weeks never managed to get into town with work commitments. Finally had them re-heeled up at Kingstown today great service would recommend to anyone, drove right up jumped out and fixed in 5 mins!!
I will definitely be back with more and love the fact that I can re cycle old shoes
Thanks Simon
Michelle Cole

Thanks for doing such a great job on both pairs of shoes
I was well impressed with the workmanship, and to be honest was very much taken a back by the quality.
I'll certainly be calling back with more Simon.
