"Provider contacted us promptly and showed up on time. They went about re-keying the locks methodically and professionally. We bought an older home and several of" the locks were dragging on the strike plates. Both locksmiths took it upon themselves to file the strike plates to improve the fit. We purchased one new set of doorknobs to replace knobs that were no longer functional, and the senior locksmith put the new knobs on the most-used door and moved the not-so-good one from there to a little-used basement door. We were impressed with the work and will definitely recommend them and use them again.

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.

We bought a 60 year old house and wanted the locks changed. These guys were great. I called them on a Monday morning and they came out the same day. The locksmith,

, worked fast but was very thorough. We had 5 doors with 4 different keys and he made it so everything was one key, replacing cylinders when necessary. He went above and beyond, taking it upon himself to tighten loose knobs and give us a quick tutorial on how some of our older mortise locks worked.

both time they were an excellent company to deal with. They were very knowledgeable and very helpful with additional info regarding the issues at hand. The TV they mounted is very secure - they explained each step as they did it and offered lots of additional ideas and helpful hints. The worker who did our locks was also terrific. They were a little bit pricey BUT worth EVERY penny!

on the phone yesterday morning. Although he is very busy he was in the area and agreed to fit me in. He quoted me a price on the phone that was very competitive. He was also friendly and professional. While he was here he found an issue with one of my locks and fixed it at no extra charge. I was very pleased with his service. Thanks for your help

I was able to get exactly what I was looking for with this service. I had misplaced a key for one of the locks but he was able to make them all work with one key. I had to wiggle my key to get it to work in one of the locks but now they all unlock easier. FYI I'm doing this review an IPad and found that commas turn into percentage symbols very odd. I removed commas because it looked very strange.

was on time and very professional. Not only did he change the locks, he also noticed that the hinges on one door were loose and tightened them without provocation. The charge for additional keys that were guaranteed to work was very reasonable and in line with other key makers.
I will definitely call on him again if I have a need.

I am very impressed with the efficiency and knowledge of the service provider. Scheduling the appointment was easy and they helped me clarify my needs. They were right on the quote. I would absolutely call them next time. The only dsappointment I had was 20 minutes after the appointment time, I had not heard from them. I was looking for the number to call them when the truck pulled in. I would have preferred a call to let me know they were running late/on the way. Once they arrived, I was impressed with the service.

Arrived promptly at the scheduled time. Reviewed the current locks and made suggestions for a lockset on a french door. Went to work quickly and worked efficiently to complete all of the changes. One deadbolt was into concrete and he replaced the deadbolt and improved the current locking situation.

I called Advance lock in order to do some additional work on my locks, doors which I hadn't thought of and one I thought I could do myself until I tried.
Winston Salem Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
S. answered the call and took my information and we set an appt date which worked for both of us for 2 days away. He called 30 minutes before the appt as I had requested and he was on time. He did 4 of my doors and I have an old house where the sizes of the new door handles and locks don't always fit. He was very professional, very nice, and discussed with me what he was doing when I asked or there was a door with special considerations (as two doors were). So anyway, I would definitely use him again and all the work done was done correctly and quickly. This review is late because of computer troubles but I made a point to remember to add it because of the good service from

I called and called locksmiths in my area. This is the only company that would come out to help me on a Saturday afternoon like that. The other companies were unwilling to come out at that time and help me. I was desperate so I really appreciated this company taking the time to get me into my home. I have since moved into a condo so others will have a key if it happens in the future. If I ever locked myself out of my car or something like that though, I would call this company again. They got to me quickly and were very helpful.
