Avi G Locksmith
When I lost my car key to my 2008 Honda Accord, I've looked for a reasonable locksmith in the North Fort Myers area. Most of the companies I called, couldn't give me a fix price for the key to be made. They all gave me a "starting price" quote. Finally I found Avi G Locksmith on line. Avi answered the phone, he gave me a flat price for a chip key replacement + programming. An hour later, he parked at my driveway and made a key within 20 mins. I'll recommend Avi For any type of ignition or locksmith service, and I'll definitely use his services again.Thank you.

This business is ran very poorly the tech didn't know much what he was doing he had to get his boss to come over within the hour they had the tumbler out of my car that was the only work that they did between a half an hour to an hour's worth of work at that point they left and I didn't see him back until well into the night then he had his wife with him and told me sorry I had errands to run as well but we won't charge you. I said okay at this point he asked for $20 for gas for trying to find the right Tumblr which I had already previously bought this is where the scam for more money came about he did not give me a receipt and he hurried up and left I've never seen him again since then or his Tech until Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock p.m. where they said I owe them a huge amount of money I told him no they said okay we will settle for and they gave me a cash amount. I paid it they gave me a receipt. Now I have gotten non-stop calls from New York numbers saying I owe them more money.

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.
