Imperial Litton Portable Typewriter

A quick note to say that I have tried the typewriter and I am very pleased with my purchase. I am confident that my mother will be very grateful to receive a fully working machine.

May I wish you every success in obtaining more typewriters that are in need of your great care and attention.



1970’s Working Rare Olivetti Valentine Vintage Manual Typewriter

Just emailing to thank you for the beautiful Olivetti 1970’s typewriter we received.

It was delivered extremely quickly with excellent packaging.

It was the best birthday present I’ve received to date- considering that I want to be a writer when I’m older.

P.s: we have multiple friends who are eyeing up the new typewriter in jealousy!

1940’s Olympia Elite Typewriter

The service I received from London Typewriters was excellent. They were more than happy to answer any questions I had, and the machine I eventually purchased was in great condition. Delivery was prompt and the machine was properly packaged to prevent damage. I shall certainly use London Typewriters again.

Rare 1920’s Working Underwood Standard 4 Bank Manual Typewriter – New Ribbon & Case – Dark Red

I instantly fell in love with this vintage Underwood when I open the box. The colour is absolutely stunning and looks almost new. Not to mention, it is fully functional in every aspect. I haven’t used a typewriter before, but it only took a few minutes to get used to it. I am using this machine for making a rough draft before I start working. This vintage typewriter is perfect to inspire writing ideas and get a fresh start of a day. I appreciate the well-maintained machine, secure packaging and all the other kind concerns.



German 1950s Princess travel typewriter

I recently discovered my parents’ old 1950s typewriter in the attic. Unloved, dirty, and unused for 25 years. I am quite attached to it, having typed secret messages on it as a child. So I rescued it and searched online to find someone who could make it shine again – and thank goodness I found Alex. He cleaned it, serviced it, got rid of all the grease and ink grime and made the keys that stuck work again and just generally gave it some love. I fetched it earlier today, together with a new ribbon, and I am very excited to have it back again in working order. Alex is professional, friendly and knowledgable and I am so pleased I found him. The service he did took a week and was very reasonable in price. I can’t recommend him highly enough. Thank you Alex very much.



1930’s Remington Portable

My Remington arrived today and I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help and swiftness in finding me the perfect machine my daughter was ecstatic when she opened it and we will certainly come to you In the future.

1930’s Royal Antique Manual Typewriter

Really pleased with the typewriter, it is a Christmas present for our daughter so we have only checked that it is ok , not really used it. However the service and delivery was very efficient which was great because I sometimes have doubts about buying on the internet. The description of the typewriter’s condition was accurate so I’m sure our daughter will be delighted. Many thanks.

1970’s Working Working Silver-Reed Silverette Vintage Manual Typewriter

Hi Alex, just wanted to say thank you so much for the typewriter which arrived yesterday. It is lovely, in excellent condition and works beautifully. We’ve already had a lot of fun with it!

There’s a lot of crap typewriters out there particularly on ebay so it was really great to open the parcel up and see such a beautifully restored/serviced typewriter.
