Texas Premier Locksmith
Yesterday 9/17/2017 I called to get my car unlocked it's 2012 Shelby Gt500 and was told the phone operator it would be a $30 service fee. When I arrived lock smith proceeded to unlock the vehicle said it would be a tough one. I don't see the difference in locks at all just because it was a Shelby he was gonna charge more?. The only difference in a base model and a Shelby is the engine and tranmssion ,.the locks and other basic things in the car are exactly the same. I was charged $232.17 that is like unlocking a Ferrari which I do not have. I never noticed the fee when signing the receipt it's something I would have noticed right off the back. Once the car was open I noticed the weather stripping had been damaged it was a eye sore right away. The lock smith claimed it wasn't him. I just bought the car the previouss day it was inspected fully and have the dealership to back me up. Now I want to be charged a fair price here for unlocking my car I've called several places in your area and here are a few of them and prices to unlock a 2012 Shelby Cobra GT500All lock n key lock smith $35-45Arrington key smith $45Rhodes family lock and key $35So why I am I being charged $232.17?? This is a deceptive practice and if the lock smith will not charge me a fair price I will proceed foward with filing a claim and further actions. All I ask Is to be treated like any fair customer in the community. I've attached a few picture just for references.

I lost my car keys. Called 411. They had 3 top listings as Arrington Lock and Key, #2 Affordable Lock Key #3 Killeen Lock and Key. Called #1 at 4:30 said the guy who made keys was gone. # 2 went to voicemail. Recalled 411, operator gave me number of All Lock a-N-Key and they should be listed as #1 in the ones to call. Very nice and courteous people.

I called Orange's Lock and Key, and Bill was very responsive and informative. He gave me a quote and told me if I came to his business, he could take care of my KEY problem right away. His price was very reasonable and Mike was so fast, I think he invented lightning. Thanks Orange Lock and Key for the best locksmith service that I have ever received.
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.
