My Sons car and apartment were broken into and they stole his spare key. I called them to replace the FOB and re-key the car. Cost $200, have new key but the old FOB still works!!!!!!!! Asked them what good that does. Their response, "Well, yes whoever stole the key can still get into the car, but at least they cant steal it!!!!!! I guess there was a misunderstanding." Beware, complete ripoff company, do not use.

BACK AWAY FROM THE BUILDING in my opinion these ppl are so unprofessional!!! They dnt honor their quotes they make you wait all day while your car is finished without calling you to pick up your car you have to call them their excuse is they are busy and will only call you if they have time or get a break the prices are crazy high too.. I went there despite what ppl/reviews said BUT EVERYONE WAS RIGHT ABOUT THEM I will never go back to them EVER!

The guy behind the counter actually kicked me out and cursed at me asking about a price! Talk about lack of a professionalism! I came in to cut a copy of my car key (I already had the blank)made and he said it would be 45 dollars. It is reasonable to wonder how a door key costs $2 and a car key costs over 20 times more. Immediately he got on the defensive and offered no explanation and kicked me out of the store. Cross the street and have it done at Dale Earnhart Chevrolet, they'll charge you $30, there's free coffee, and they won't treat you like a criminal for asking questions.

David the owner damages everything he touches. He rips u off and prices and highway robbery! He has no personal skills and made deragatory statements at me and was very mean can tell he doesn't like certain people. I will never do business here again and I want to warn other people to stay away as he has no customer service skills and will argue with the customer cause he thinks he's always right. Take ur business elsewhere
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.
