A-1 Locksmith
I went out to eat and some how lost my key and could not get inside when I arrived home. I called A-1 Locksmith. The person who answered the phone was extremely pleasant and eager to help. He arrived in record time. The weather was horrible with cold temperature and pouring down rain. He managed to "pick" the lock with no damage and we were inside in less than 10 minutes. In light of the time of evening and the weather I felt the price was very reasonable and fair. I would highly recommend this firm because he took such good care of us.

I called Nashville Key Service and asked what an average price would before changing the lock on a metal security door. The woman who answered said that service started at $35. Later I saw it on their website at $45. They sent two men out who could not speak English. They did not understand a word I said and I could not understand them. The one man who talked kept pointing to my lock and saying "caseta." I told him I didn't understand and he kept gesticulating and repeating caseta. I finally said, "How much?" and he looked confused, so I said "price" at which he said "Caseta $150 and labor, $300 or $350." I told him that was too much, and he asked, "How much you want to pay? I talk to manager," and he grabbed his phone. I tried to explain about the $35 starting cost but he shook his head. I told them I would not be able to use them and they looked confused. I finally got the point across and said I would pay the service charge but not $300. I handed him my credit card and he asked for cash. I said no and he charged my card but did not give me a receipt. I called the office to complain and was put on an extensive hold. The manager picked up twice but apparently could not hear me so she hung up. I called back and tried to explain my issue, but she kept putting me on hold and taking other calls. When she got back to me, I could tell she didn't really remember what I had told her. She said she would talk to the owner and find out what I had been charged, but as of 3 1/2 hours later, I have heard nothing back from Nashville Key. This is a company where the posted prices are low but the actual prices are extremely high, can apparently be negotiated but not anywhere close to the original ball park quote. Buyer beware.

Called Hosse and Hosse on a Tuesday and by Friday they still had't gotten back to me about being able to unlock a broken front door lock. Very disappointing.

Wow. I've used these guys before and was happy with their work, so I decided to call them to install a powerlock (bluetooth, etc.).Called ahead, gave them info on the lock, brand, model, etc...the answer was "no problem".Well, after an hour, the locksmith became frustrated, decided that he had had enough and said he would not finish the installation. Since he said the lock was on the door and "working" he had done his job.The ATTITUDE and LACK of customer service are an issue. Called another locksmith, and he discovered that the hole they bored through my SOLID WOOD door was 1/4 higher on one side than the other--hence all the problems!Honestly, shocking level of service and poor quality work. I have never had someone just "give up" and walk off the job.Really, just a shame that you try to support a local business and they fail you! Never again. AVOID them... They basically ruined my door and then left me to try to fix it!

This little shop was very helpful when I had trouble with my electronic key for my car. They showed me how all of it works, then offered to reset my lost key at no charge if I should find it. They were definitely less expensive than the dealership. This place has a small town feel with service to match.

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.
