DO NOT CALL THESE PEOPLE! The price was almost three times what another local locksmith would charge, and the locksmith they sent me had the nerve to ask for gas money after triple charging me!

Tri-County had a 2 page Yellow Pages spread, and I thought they would be reliable.

My Saturn key wouldn't turn in the ignition, and I thought my key was too worn. The locksmith got there-15 minutes later than the "no more than 1/2 hour" I was told. After taking it apart, he still couldn't get it to turn, so he told me the last resort was to drill out the lock...but he didn't know (and neither did I) that my Saturn had a security feature-not the key-that when you tear out the center, it'll turn over but you can't start it.

So after working on drilling it out for 2 hours in the hot sun, I STILL had to have it towed to Salem. I called the next day to the main number, wanting my towing OR his service call reimbursed, and he not only argued with me that my car had that feature, he said "Oh, we'll replace your ignition for $400 today (the dealer would only be $100 more, and they'd be more reliable), but we won't reimburse you anything" for screwing up my car, and he got very belligerent.
Thanks Brent, Mr. Owner, for making me realize what a horrible company you are, and I wish I had read citysearch BEFORE calling them.
The locksmith himself was nice, even offered to drive me from Tualatin to Salem, but that wouldn't have solved anything.

New to the city, I decided a car would be appropriate for the occasion. I could learn the streets, keep dry and maybe take a trip around the country if I'd like.
However, the toll of not owning a car for a couple years comes at the price of forgetting one's keys.
Today I went to the gym and after my work out, I realized I forgot my keys in the car. Oh, no! How terrible. I googled "Locksmith Milwaukie, OR" and came with an address that google gave me right nearby. I thought, "Oh, well, normally since my insurance isn't in effect, the rough cost would be $60. But since they're so nearby, maybe they'll be cheaper!"
And so I called them.
"Where are you?"
"What's the make and model and year of the car?"
"We'll be right there."
GREAT! Speedy service and I'm sure they'll do the trick!
But no. Thirty minutes later a jolly older man comes and opens my door. I get my card ready and then he says to me, "Well. That'll be $98."
"Excuse me?"
"$98."
"And WHY is it $98."
"Oh, you know, $20 for opening and $78 for the drive here."
"I thought you guys were nearby. Google told me so."
"Oh no, google was wrong. We're at 82nd & Powell."
"And the six mile drive is worth $78?!"
"Yes."
The man tried to tell me my insurance company would pay for it. I told him my insurance wasn't in effect yet since I got the car this past weekend, fourth of July weekend. Still no remorse. No "Oh, I'm sorry we didn't tell you of our outrageous pricing! Let me cut $20 off!"
I called later and asked the man if he was going to charge me so much, why wasn't I informed by someone of the flat rate? They did it in all the other cities I've lived in. But the owner only told me it wasn't Portland practice to tell people what you'll charge them.
So, Tri County Locksmith. I give you one star. Because although the job was done, you're nothing but a bunch of opportunistic pieces of #$@#.

Pros: They opened my car.

Cons: They charge you a flat rate of $98 to do so.

We called this company to fix the doorknob on a 120-year-old Victorian door. They showed up, took a look at the door, pulled out an allen wrench, turned it twice, then handed us a bill for $150. They were maybe there for 90 seconds. WAY OVERPRICED. Every locksmith I spoke to afterwards told me I got fleeced. Never again

We just had to have someone come out and my husband was in a hurry and called the first person he saw in the phone book. These guys charged us 3 times what some other locksmiths would have charged us. We had a lock picked and re-keyed which took about 15 minutes and cost $150.

I also called after this whole thing happen and asked for a quote and the quote was $50 less than we paid. When asked to explain why he came up with a new labor charge and then said that others aren't bonded or insured and that is why they are so cheap.

They were very intimidating. I was very dissatisfied with their customer service. . Spoke to the owner he was also intimidating and argumentative with me. Called the company that referred him and let him know my dissatisfaction with the customer service. I would not recommend this company.

I used Tricounty for a master keying project. The bill came to approx $2000 for a 10-12 doors. I recently had my handyman come out to take a look at some locks that were sticking and he told me that the locksmith used shotty parts to replace the locks. Cost me even more money to redo their work!

I have been here a couple times to have keys made and these people have always done a great job. By that I mean that the new key didn't stick or anything. It went into the lock as smoothly as my worn key.

I called to find a replacement key for a filing cabinet and when I was told he could send someone out for $85 to look to see if they could make a key, I was shocked. I began to explain the price of the filing cabinet when the man HUNG UP on me. I would strongly recommend they work on their phone skills.

A Tri-County Locksmith changed all the locks on my house when I moved in. Within four months one of the locks stopped working and I could no longer use my front door. It took several days to have someone come fix it. And when they did, the person admitted that it was likely due to the initial installment of the lock, then proceeded to charge $90. It took him less than five minutes to fix. I do not reccommend this company.

I lost the key to my bike lock, leaving my lean, green, pedal-powered machine trapped in a rack. The phone contact was clear and helpful. The locksmith who arrived was fast and professional. They both used cell phones (and 3-way calling) to find me quickly. Overall, A+.
