Garbo's Locksmith Service
Gretta has been making keys for myself and my family since 2003. Every time I called, she was at my office promptly and always happy. There were several times she had to let me in because I did not have a key. She has more to offer in her key selection than anyone in Abilene. If I locked me keys in my car, she is there within 10 minutes and does NOT scuff up my car in the process of getting my car unlocked. There is nobody else I will call in Abilene. Her prices are very reasonable. Garbo's is the BEST!! Thank you, Gretta!!!

If I ever lock my keys in my car or trunk again, and I'm sure I will I will not call any other company but Garbo's! From the first call to the last the dispatcher, Gretta, was extremely nice and when she said that a locksmith would be there in a few, she meant it. Unfortunately, my keys were lost so she sent a young man out and he made me new keys and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg. I really appreciate their kindness and consideration and would highly recommend them.

I am a former employee of this great company. I would totally recommend them, based on the current company I work for. These folks are a great God lead business that is fair, professional, and offer the best service. The owners are great people, the staff are great and well educated. I really miss working there, but they get my 100% vote if u need service in that area, they are the one's to call.

Garbo's is AWESOME!!! I accidentally locked my baby in the car (with the car on) & they sent someone right away. After quickly unlocking the car, I was ready to pay but was informed that "We unlock babies for free!". I highly recommend this company!!!

Tips & Advices
Locksmiths-in-training can receive foundational knowledge and skills through programs offered at technical colleges or vocational schools. These would include basic courses on lock mechanics and manipulation, along with general skills like business management. From there, most trainees seek an apprenticeship, where they work alongside a professional locksmith. This allows them to gain experience in the field. It can also put them on a course toward certification.
Upon arrival to your home, a locksmith should ask you to prove that it is in fact your residence. They should also be able to unlock most common locks without requiring them to be drilled or completely replaced. Be sure to obtain an invoice that lists all charges before agreeing to pay.
  • If possible, research local locksmiths online and take note of any that have poor reviews or complaints.
  • When calling a locksmith, confirm their address matches what you found online or in a directory. Then ask for a cost estimate for the service you need, and ask to have them bring a written copy of this estimate.
  • Some states require locksmiths to be licensed. If your state is one of them, require the locksmith to bring proof of registration when they arrive.
The term locksmith traditionally referred to people who designed and built locks, but today is generally used for those who repair and replace locks. Locksmiths can be available on-call to help people if they're locked out of their home or apartment.
  • First, determine the type of lock you have, as well as the manufacturer or model if possible. You should also obtain measurements of your door and frame.
  • Remove exterior and interior knobs by unscrewing any visible screws you find. Many knobs will include a decorative cover on the interior side that can be removed.
  • Once you've removed the entire lock, find the screws on the inside of the door frame to remove the latch or deadbolt.
  • With everything removed, repeat these steps in reverse order to install the new lock.
