I recently had occasion to require a locksmith. I called several places to compare pricing. First I hit several locations of locksmiths that claimed to be based here, and were actually out of state! I don't even know how that's legal. Anyway, I had the pleasure of speaking with Robin, who was very informative and courteous. She provided a license number that ensured their guys had been background-checked, which was a huge comfort (I later learned this is a requirement in our state for all legal locksmiths.) After going over all my options, I chose the work I wanted done. The gentleman showed up on time, did the work competently, and cleaned up after he was done. The quote given by Robin ended up spot-on. I really felt like I was an individual customer rather than just another check in the bank. I loved them and would highly recommend them!
Took way too long to copy one key Went to Baldinos to make a copy of my car key to give to my girlfriend. It took the employee almost 20 minutes to cut the key. I tested the key when I returned to my car and it wouldn't unlock my vehicle. I went back inside and took the employee another 10 minutes to copy a replacement. I won't return there if I need keys or locks in the future!
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!
