"I went online to find a place to get a safe. I was thrilled to find that there was a relatively new locksmith around the corner from my home in
" Oaks that carried top of line safes. I walked in and the staff was friendly and informative. Everything was easy from the moment I walked in through the installation process a few days later.
helped me find just the right safe for my needs. I ordered it and when the safe arrived a few days later, I received a call and the guys showed and installed the safe. Yes, it was that
. No hiccups. I honestly love knowing that I can always turn to
if I have any further locksmith needs!

arrived to my vacation rental on time, changed out the lock rather quickly, placed batteries in the lock (that I had forgotten to purchase" beforehand), tested the lock several times, and then took the time to show me the instructions and go over the features of the new lock.
was very polite and quite helpful in showing me how to use the new lock system.

Dear Angie: Are keyless locks — the ones with a keypad — as good as regular deadbolts? — Deb H. of Madison, Wisconsin

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.

Just exceptional service! I initiated the call on Monday, they were back with a response Monday evening and booked it for noon the next day. I sent a video of my problem, so they were able to pick up the parts on the way to call.

called me to tell me his whereabouts 10 minutes before the call so I was able to leave work and meet him.
He was completely professional and competent and punctual, I was back on road by 12:30. Their price was 30% lower than best bid I had.

I just discovered a broken lock and the owner came and did not charge me anything. He told me how I could remedy the issue as it was a larger problem than the lock at present. He was professional, kind, and very thorough. He helped me troubleshoot and determine a few ways to resolve the issue. He would not take any money for a service call. We will definitely use them again. Thank you!!!!

It went very well. The lock with the mis-aligned lockset stuck so I called

back and he fixed it with two hours of my calling at no charge. Very good work and service. All of our doors now open with the same key. I would definitely hire again.

In short, avoid this company at the best you can. Pricy, not
responsive and arrogant attitude.

Timeline:
Nov 1, 2014 first visit, charged me near $700 for 4 lock
replacements

Vista Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
19, 2014, second visit, brought the deadbolt lock for
back door and front door, the front door one is incorrect model and the young
gentleman says he will be back next week to get the correct one installed. He
also took one out of 4 back door keys back to their company "for record
purpose" and said will bring it back to us at the time of the front door
lock installation.

Feb 25, 2015, called at N time regarding the front door
lock, the owner says there is nothing they can do but wait, and don't give a s***
about the key they are keeping.

Current condition:
the company still holds one of my back door key. I have no
idea where the h*** is my front door lock nor about the ETA of the next
visit/installation. The owner of the business simply cannot care less about
customer feeling. The 5-star reviews on yelp and google must be a completely
joke.
-----------------------

So here comes the full story.

I bought a house back in Oct 2014 and I wanted to replace
the locks. Then I searched for yelp for locksmiths while at that time I didn't
know about angies list. Then I found this yelp 5-star locksmith so called
"
Vista Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
".

So I called, the first visit was on Nov 1st, 2014 and the
young gentleman came and marketed the "medeco locks" claiming the medeco
lock provides top level quality etc. I paid near $700 bucks for two of the
medeco locks and 2 regular deadbolt locks. Said the young man he would be back
4-6 weeks when the medeco lock arrives because "each of the lock is
customized".

And around 7 weeks later with no communication from the
company, we called and schedule the installation in late December. The guy
brought an incorrect model and said the correct one was left at company so he
would be back next week to install it. He also took one of the 4 keys for the
back door back for "record purpose"

Then silence, no communication or what so ever from the
company. We have to call the company for more than 20+ times to get update on
our order since mid January 2015. Since it already passed the "6-weeks"
line. And the owner says they never ordered the correct one and they had to
re-order a new one so I have to wait for another 6 weeks starting from early
January.

Fine, I can wait. Now is nearly March and the company is
doing nothing, no update, no apology, no refund. I called again today and they
claim that the lock just arrived last Friday and provided no date for
installation nor mention about my back door key. I'm fed up with their attitude
and lousy service and I don't give a s*** if they leak my back door key. I want
everyone know the truth about this company and do your best to avoid this

Excellent! Tidy, timely, efficient, professional. He even was careful and considerate of our flooring. Dorrant could not have been a better example of how and why this service, Angie's List, works, as we selected the service provider largely based on his glowing reviews by others, and are now happy to add ours to the list.
