BEWARE them like the plague!. This is the worst company ever to exist. They are underhanded and charge exorbitant fees. Their father who is deceased would be ashamed of how they run the business and how they treat people. For every positive review you see here, there are ten hidden very sad stories about them ruining people's lives. Stay away.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE after an already traumatic accident - cannot believe these people take advantage like this. My daughter went in the ditch Saturday. The local Sheriff contacted Prairie Land in Sun Prairie. We spoke with them on Saturday & Sunday, asked what we needed to do & they told us and when we asked about payment, they said ALL major credit cards. My husband took off work & when we got there Monday, 2/10/14, They said $80 to have them pull it in and give us a repair estimate. We told them we were just there to pick up the car and the receptionist barked at us that we did not get to see our car until we paid our bill in cash. We do not live nearby and do not have a bank nearby. The mechanic again tried to convince us to do the $80 estimate and then we could pay with credit card. We explained that the car was not worth enough to repair. My husband argued again that they told us credit cards were accepted. They eventually let us pay our $400 by credit card. $400 to tow from 5 miles down the road. 5 mechanics sat in the lounge area at 3pm and watched us load our damaged car. Not a single employee offered us help after they took our payment of $400. I have never met a receptionist as rude as this person and could not believe the way we were treated. I made sure I followed up with the BBB and the Sheriff who sent us there.

was called after an accident, not by my request, loaded vehicle, and didnt go anywhere, to unload, they wanted 78.00. I can see some money, but not 78.00, especially after I didnt even have a chance to say who i wanted to come for my vehicle. Ridiculous.
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.
