A To Z Budget Key
Terrible.. the guy thinks he's doing you a favor to take your money. The guys up front are nice, the owner could care less about you. No much else to say except it's a bad idea to spend your money here.

Wilde Auto and Recovery
My car broke down in a parking lot and I have roadside assistance through my insurance. I call my roadside and they set me up with a tow from Wilde's. We received a text with an estimated arrival time of 1 hour. At the time of estimated arrival, the dtow truck driver called and said he would be 25 minutes late. 35 minutes later we've received no additional updates so we called the company. The receptionist (some lady who gave no name) apparently had no idea what we were talking about. She said she'd call the driver and call us back. 30 minutes later we STILL had not heard back. After waiting for nearly 3 hours we canceled the tow and called Ron's towing. His truck arrived within 10 minutes. Don't use Wilde's, call another company.

A To Z Budget Key
Had called a few other locksmiths and quoted outrageous prices. A to Z came out the same day, was 1/8th the cost of the other locksmiths and even made a second key for free. Thank you, you saved me hundreds of dollars!

Extreme Tow
We purchased a classic car for a restoration project. We want to keep very accurate records of this project, who we did business with from the start to the finish of every little detail. We had Extreme Tow pickup the car and deliver it to us. We did not get a receipt at the time of the deliver and have been trying now for three weeks to get them to give us a simple receipt - they will not give us a receipt. We have called and emailed, they say they will email it to us or send it USPS. NO LUCK YET. I don't understand why we can't get a receipt. Makes me feel like they are hiding something since we paid for the tow in cash. DO NOT USE EXTREME TOW. Find a company that is above board and not trying to hide something.

Auto Locksmiths in Kansas City
It's kind of ridiculous how fast, professional, knowledgable, and funny these guys are. You can be in and out in 5 minutes and only pay about per key. I'd strongly recommend this place for any key copying needs.

Wilde Auto and Recovery
These guys are absolute scum! They rammed into my girlfriend's car that I was driving just as I had begun to turn into the left turning lane on a Friday in April. After the accident, he blamed it on us saying that we didn't have our indicator on which was not true because I never turn without turning on the indicator. He was being very helpful and loaded up our car and said that he'd drop us wherever we wanted to go. We told him to hold on to the car and that we'd call them to tell them where to tow it. We had initially told them to tow it to the Adam's Toyota Center in Lee's Summit but then told them to wait. When my gf called back on Monday to tell them to wait since she had signed up for AAA, she was told that her car had already been towed. To release the car, they charged her $955! She had not authorized the towing and still had to pay. Stay away from these scoundrels, they'll pounce on you if you're ever in an accident and you'll end up having to pay ridiculous sums!

Brandt Locksmiths
Ninja-man! I walked in today very pregnant and with my two small children. I was worried about the timing/cost of getting fobs- especially since we're going out of town tomorrow on a budget. Brandt programmed two key-fobs for our van in less than 10 minutes for just over $30... Wow! Incredible! I'm very grateful. We'll be back and be sending all friends his way.

Brandt Locksmiths
I live out of state and the locksmiths here in town destroyed one of my keys. I called the staff at Brandt explain to them my high security key needs and ship the key off. They completed the job and shipped it back to me in less than a week fully functional. Highly recommend professional staff.

Wilde Auto and Recovery
Total scum! The owner saw me crash on my way to work and came over. He offered to give me a lift to work for free, come get my car later, and store it for free until I figured out what to do with it. All those "free" services ended up with a bill sent to me for $800! He charged me a tow fee to take me to work, he charged me a hazard fee to get my car out of the ditch, he charged me $50 per day storage, and he charged me another tow fee taking my car to the scrap yard when I found a good deal.If he was going to charge me, he should have said so! I would have taken an Uber to work for $10 instead of a hundred and fifty dollar tow fee. If you are going to charge me $50 per day for keeping my car at your lot, don't pretend it's free until you have towed it there and left it for a week or I would have had it taken straight to a scrap yard! I never thought getting towed after a wreck would cost me nearly a grand!
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.
