Locksmith reviews in Tacoma

    This company is a local, established (has a storefront) company that provides good service. We called to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. We thought a house key had been stolen. They were able to schedule for later that afternoon. The locksmith arrived, rekeyed the locks. We were charged for a service call and 4 cylinder combination changes. He was personable, knowledgeable, and professional

    The process far exceeded expectations from first contact. The first person I talked to listened as I described the issues and his responses inspired confidence. We set up a time for the locksmith to come out. He (Kevin) arrived promptly, disassembled the lock, quickly fixed the issue with the latch and then replaced the key cylinder and keyed it to match the key used for other exterior doors. The new key cylinder matched the old bronze of the exterior door hardware. The locksmith was friendly and efficient and the lock now works perfectly. We explored the cost of replacing the beautiful antique lock handset with a comparable new mortise lock handset and the cost was hundreds of dollars more than the cost of the repair.

    Superior Lock Services
    Fantastic. He was a referral from a brick-and-mortar locksmith that knows and trusts him. That was important to me because I was sending him to my mother's home to re-key her locks after she had been mugged. He was responsive, communicative, punctual and professional. Rates were very reasonable, and my mom loved him. You couldn't ask for more from a locksmith!

    Corcoran and Guardian Lock and Safe in south Tacoma are two of the only services I trust any tacoma. Many "locksmiths" work off cells and out of vans they are not reliable or trustworthy, Pick someone who has been around for a while and who is listed in the old fashion phone book.

    ESI Security Inc
    A week or so ago I called ESI because the system started a soft beeping. I pressed a button and it stopped. The person I spoke with had me press different buttons, etc. and everything seemed to work ok. He said that the technician would call me in the
    morning. He did call when he said he would and came to my home within 30 minutes. He checked everything. He called the wireless provider and the soft beeping was caused by a very short interruption in service when the provider had worked on it. 
    I am very pleased that ESI took this incident seriously and dealt with it so promptly.

    It went very well. The technician arrived on time. Brady was clear in his explanations of how he would complete the separate tasks and he did it as explained. He also suggested how to save money by reusing one of our existing fully functional knobs in a less visible location instead of charging me for a new knob. All in all, I was very pleased with the service call & the office. It was not inexpensive to have this work done, but it was worth it because the service was good and reliable.

    William arrived promptly and set to work; the job took much longer than originally estimated due to type of locks that were used. The interior knob was replaced incorrectly and had to be redone. William grew somewhat irritable by amount of time he was spending on the job. Because he was hurried in finishing up I feel he didn't get everything done as well as he might of if enough time has been budgeted

    Ryan is fast, knowledgeable, efficient, courteous and personable.  he did a great job installing the various locks and door knobs I needed.  He also suggested various options for keeping costs down.  I needed to be able to lock door to my furnace and door to my hot water heater to keep little grandkids out. Ryan suggested a less expensive way to do this.  I will definitely use Corcoran Lock and Safe again.

    Always Safe & Lock Inc
    I was referred to them by another locksmith that didn't have the capability to do the work. I call ahead the they said they thought they had the correct key but my year of car had 2 possibilities. I'd need to stop in to make sure they had the correct one. They quoted a per key cost and a programming fee for all keys. I stopped by half an hour later and they check my key and they were able to make 2 keys for my car. It took about 10 minutes to make the keys and program them in my car. They also explained how many keys my car can have total and that I would have to have all 3 keys to add more later due to how my car is setup. It was quick, they knew what they were doing and the new keys worked first time, just fine.

    All Around/The Other Locksmith

    Terrible and potentially dangerously unsafe for our new tenant.. The owner/locksmith supposedly rekeyed the locks and provided new duplicate keys to us. As the property owners we were rekeying so a new tenant would have new rekeyed locks. Instead we found out that we still had the original lock settings and the keys from the previous tenant would still work in this supposedly rekeyed lock. This is very unsafe and dangerous at the very least. We found this out because we took the duplicate keys home on Sept. 2,2014, and happened to compare the new keys with a copy of the previous tenant's key and discovered that the keys were still the same. Contacted the Owner and he indicated that there are slight variations in the keys and for us to check the old key in the newly rekeyed lock. We drove back(1 1/2 hr. trip each way) the next day Sept 3, 2014, and found that the old key also opened the newly rekeyed lock and thus we paid for a rekeying that did not occur and would have put a new tenant in danger if the previous tenant wanted to access the unit. The Owner was not concerned or sorry and had no explanation for this botched work. In fact he was very unpleasant and rude and tried to act like it was somehow our fault.
