People on the phone seem to not know what they are talking about. They give different estimates completely from the locksmiths. Low amount of professionalism. Locksmith called me several bad names during conversation with him. Manager offered no compensation. Nobody even spoke clear English... very frustrating experience.

Area Safe and Lock came to the house after another 'locksmith' broke his drill in the lock &scratched the door. The service was excellent! Jim not only fixed the lock that was broken but brainstormed with me about the best way to do it. He made keys (that were lost) for 2 other doors. He was efficient, knowledgeable & neat. When the lock set I ordered came in, he came back & once again did a great job. I would highly recommend them!

These other reviews are accurate. They not only took 2 weeks to order very basic locks, but when I wanted them keyed to my key, it cost me 4 times what it normally should have. I was once a locksmith and could have ordered the locks (which should have been stocked), and rekeyed them by the next afternoon. These guys aren't busy for good reason. Take your business elsewhere.

I recently had to use this service... They showed up in under 15 minutes had the car open in less than 5 minutes... Cost was 45 which is reasonable as when calling around I had received quotes all the way up to 120...

I can't tell you how many times these people have had to unlock my car for me! I'm the world's worse for leaving my keys in the ignition and locking the doors. They're quick to rescue you and if you're child is locked in the car, they'll come out and unlock it for free (learned this the hard way!) They're prices are reasonable and I feel if I'm stupid enough to lock my keys in the car, I should pay!

01/01/10 we requested roadside assistance to change a flat tire on our van. Geico sent Pop-a-Lock. They sent a kid in a red 4 wheel vehicle who couldn't figure out where the spare was nor how to get it off so we had to give him the manual to figure it out. After locating the spare, the guy placed the jack in the incorrect spot underneath the van, bending the metal. Then, he began to remove the lugnuts and he broke one. We simply asked him to fix it and put the spare on and he advised he will need to contact his manager. After speaking with his manager, he asked us how long it had been since we had changed the tire and that it wasn't his fault and that the lugnut would've popped off regardless, which is insulting. First, no matter what or why, we called for a service that we pay for every month and when we called Geico who sent pop-a-lock, for service, our van is now undrivable. Luckily, I understand that pop-a-lock is not Geico and they are the ones to blame. I feel as though people should know this company is not a company with ethics and morals b/c when I heard him talking to his manager after telling him geico is sending a tow truck to tow the van to Discount Tire, the manager simply said, "okay, well, I guess we'll bill it as a full ticket". They do not deserve to get paid for this service. Photos can be provided.

Scammedbylocksmith. You probably di not call the real Pop A Lock. There are many scammers out there who claim they are us. If you said you called and spoke directly to the owner, that wouldnt be the way we do things. All complaints go through the city manager. If you feel like it was us please email me at mypalaustin@gmail dot com and we can look up your info to see if it was really us. We also dont charge 48 dollars so again it may have not been us.

My 18 year old daughter locked her keys in her car in Austin. We had no spare. Called Pop-A-Lock and they told me it would be 30-45 minutes and would cost $48. After an hour, I called them again and they said they had already come by, and even asked for her then left. She was at volleyball gym which is housed on a small campus. Only one way in and out. Her brother went to the lot to wait for the driver since it was getting late and dark. He actually sat on the car waiting. Once more I called the company and they told me they would go back, but it would be an additional $10. What were we to do? After the car was opened, I called the company to tell them their driver lied about two visits. I said, "Im sure as a business owner you would want to know your driver never showed up but once...," The owner hung up on me. Passing my story along. Be Warned!

Dont know what this other person was talking about, but I had great service when I called Pop A Lock. They came out and unlocked my house with no problems. Even gave me a great deal on rekeying. I would recommend them to all my friends and family. The technician was very courteous and showed up earlier then expected. A++++ Service

Got locked out of my house at 10:45 pm. Called Pop-a-lock and given ETA of 30 minutes.

The Pop-a-lock technician showed up at 12:20 am, actual arrival took 95 minutes.

Technician had given up and left after 20 minutes, after checking to see if any doors were unlocked and trying to force the garage. He recommended I call someone else to drill the locks. Afterwards, I called the service multiple times, and still haven't even been able to get an explanation as to what went wrong.

So after two hours stuck outside in the middle of the night, I broke a window. This took about 5 minutes, and after regaining entry my only regret was calling Pop-a-lock.
