Extremely unreliable, never showed up for the job and had our business waiting. Had to hire another company to replace our office's glass door.

My experience with PBC Locksmith, specifically Joe, was great. He showed up quickly, was honest, and more than fair with his prices. I'd definitely recommend the company.

PBC Locksmith
PBC Locksmith did a great job for us when we moved into our new home. They were responsive when I called to schedule, had availability when we needed it, and we very very fairly priced. They showed up on time for the job, and were friendly and courteous. I won't hesitate to call them again the next time I need a locksmith.

Love that company! Fixed everything for me quickly. Customer service is great! I'd rather purchase from them all the time, then some other places. They have modules in stock and they have all kind of repair service. Recommend!

Fast service – I locked myself out of the house because I was taking the trash out to the garage. I had the neighbor call the locksmith and the technician was at my house in no time. He went to work right away and got me in my house. I'm glad that they were so quick at responding to the call and unlocking the door.

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.
