"I have used this provider's services before so I knew what to expect. The provider (can't remember his name, sorry) arrived on time, and re-keyed three" locks. Service was quick and efficient and he was very pleasant. Would not hesitate to use this provider again.

"The job was misdiagnosed and overcharged. He was there 10 mins . Enough time to run the credit card. Customer service was aggravatingly tried" to unreasonably justify the tech. If he was not told to stop he would have charged another $150.00 to put in a lock anyone can buy at Home Depot for $15 and put on in 2 mins with a screwdriver.

Locksmiths

If you're locked out of your home or car, a locksmith can be your lifeline - but make sure you hire a reputable one.

Avoid locksmith scams

Arrests and lawsuits around the country accuse shady locksmiths of price gouging, intimidation and misleading consumers.

In addition to the roughly $100-200 for the lockset itself, I would expect from $50-100 range (depending on your local labor costs) by a locksmith, ASSUMING you get a lockset that uses the existing door and frame lockset holes - should only take about 15-30 minutes in that case. Could run into maybe $100 more for a carpenter or the locksmith to fill and glue the existing holes and then drill new ones if lock does not fit the existing (probably "standard" hole spacing and setback - or maybe $200-300 more for carpenter to put in entirely new striker side trim and paint to match if you don't like the looks of the filled holes.

I understand your concern - but locksmiths are criminal record vetted and bonded pretty well, so not a major risk there. Unless you bought the deadbolt and entry lockset as a boxed set - both keyed the same - it would be normal for him to rekey so they use the same key. People do not want to have to fumble with two different keys to get in, so he probably just did not think to ask if you wanted them the same. Is it also possible he was keying to match a back or garage door lock too so all your entry doors use the same key ? A large portion of their work is rekeying locks after change of tenants or owners, or changing out a worn out lockset, so that would be second nature to him to do it - I don't personally think you have a high risk from this, unless perhaps you live in a very upscale house and had a lot of valuables laying around that he could see while working. If that $66 million Van Gogh painting you bought yesterday was leaning against the entry wall waiting to be hung, then I might be a bit concerned - otherwise not.

I called him and he came out that. day. He know exactly what the door lock was and the involvement in removing it. He installed a new handset bought at Home Depot. He was quick and professionally.

Fantastic! He was the first provider to return my call so he got the business. He confirmed ahead of time and showed up right on time. We had a specific request and he was able to provide. We were also on a time restraint and he was extremely efficient and professional. I will definitely call again if a need arises!

In my Angie's List I found that AB Locksmith had a store not far from our home. Because I wasn't sure what we needed, I took a picture of our door and took it to their location. The store was light, clean and welcoming and the salesperson was friendly, professional and knowledgable. We agreed on the locks to secure ...More our doors and their workman arrived the next day at the time we arranged. The workman ended up installing 4 locks with the number of keys we needed and the work was completed in about an hour. I couldn't be more pleased. The ability to talk face-to-face with a locksmith expert in their store significantly influenced this evaluation.

The gentleman who came out was very nice, however the work was shoddy. The sliding door lock was not working for some reason within the next day or so. I called back and the gentleman came back out and readjusted the lock (after stating that it must have been something I did because it was fine when he left the first time). Since the original service ...More I have had problems with both locks. The front door will NOT LOCK from the inside and the sliding door will NOT LOCK from the outside. Unfortunately I am very disappointed with this service and provider.

I had NO expectations that anyone could fix these antique doors, and was anticipating having to get something new "wedged in" somehow to get them to work again.
The two sets of doors were sticking, and were only able to be opened from the outside, not inside.
ALL WAS ADJUSTED AND FIXED.
The locksmith showed me how innovative ...More the 1890s lock mechanisms work (a circular turning motion, parts open like an umbrella, using gravity to unlock); and that NO locks are made like this now because it is too expensive of a process.
His understanding and familiarity with older locks was amazing.
It took a little time to complete, but two big, antique door locks were fixed, and no time wasted. I watched the whole time, and found it fascinating.

Several days after my purchase, Angie's List had to prompt this service provider to contact me. Finally, after being contacted, the locksmith asked me to email pictures of the door-lock work I was seeking to have performed so that they could take a look at the pictures and call me back. I emailed the pictures and waited (2) days for them to ...More call me back. I took it upon myself to call them back was told that they did take a look at the pictures I sent and that they knew exactly what service I needed to have performed, but that the store was too busy right now to help me and that they would call me back shortly after they become less busy. Having received no call back yet from them, at this point I'm just wasting precious time so I will just ask Angie's List to refund my purchase for this particular locksmith, and I'll just look for some other locksmith provider who is not too busy.

Received a call on Memorial Day from our real estate agent for the estate house we were selling.Basically, the buyer's home inspector wasn't able to access the house with the key in the lockbox. I went up to the house and was unable to unlock the door with my key either and didn't have keys for the other doors. I called AB Bonded Locksmiths ...More that afternoon. They offered to come out on the holiday, but as there was no rush (inspector was gone) we set up a time on Tuesday to meet at the house. arrived on time and after failing to get the lock opened/working, entered the house through another door. He replaced the broken handle set and was on his way in under 40 minutes. Very responsive company and painless experience. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

It was very easy to get the appointment set up, and I was able to get things arranged within 24 hours. came out on time and was very prompt, courteous and got the job done in record time. My only quibble was that his key copy machine was a bit out of and the copied keys stick a little bit in the locks ...More so I had to go to Home Depot and get copies cut from his original set.
