I called, they had Chris the tech out in 1/2 an hour and he had the safe open in 15 minutes. He was fast, courteous and helpful. I really appreciate the excellent service. THANK YOU

I had 2 commercial safes that each weighed over 3,000 that I needed to move from a commercial location to a residential location. I tried 4 other movers but they were unwilling or unable to take on the project. I called Security Safe and got in touch with Devon who requested some pics and a little more detail. I was quoted a price of $450 for the first hour and $225 for each additional hour thereafter and that we can have it scheduled a week from our conversation. I accepted it quickly before they changed their minds (since nobody else wanted to do it) and had our time and date set! I figured that it should take right around 1 hour since the distance was only 6.5 miles and there were no stairs involved. Our moving date came and I received a call at the exact time of our scheduled appointment telling me that the guys were on their way. I left to meet them and they showed up slightly after I did. 2 guys jump out of the truck and I'm thinking it might not be enough. One guy is an older, scrawny gentleman who couldn't have been more than 150lbs and the other guy was a younger 20 something kid around 190lbs that looked to be the "muscle" for the move. I start thinking an hour to an hour and a half of charged worked for me ($675, ugh). Little did I know that Gary (the "scrawny" guy) had YEARS of experience moving safes. They unloaded their equipment (2 pallet jacks and a forklft) and proceeded to load each safe onto their moving truck with a minimum of effort and no wasted motion. I watch them tie everything down and tell them that I'll meet them at the drop off location, all the while looking at my watch and timing it all in my head thinking of the final bill. As I wait for them to arrive I can only feel like they're taking their time driving over and they're letting the meter run but they actually arrived just a few minutes after me. I told them the exact placement of both safes and they easily unloaded and placed them perfectly. To my surprise Gary and his partner finished the job in exactly 1 hour! Both gentlemen were very professional and again, wasted very little motion doing their job. I really appreciated the effort that they both put in to make sure that they finished in such a timely manner. If I ever have to move these safes again I know who I will reach out to. Hopefully Gary will still be around and we can have a repeat of this experience...

Ordered a safe that they had on their website and they charged my CC immediately. A week later they emailed me saying they no longer carried that item. A week wasted and a week that they had my money. VERY POOR SERVICE!!!!!!

My AMSEC safe is more than 10 years old. A problem occurred with the electric lock. This, it turns out, was self-inflected, so please do not think poorly of AMSEC safes. I called the safe company I bought it from and after sending them photos with a description of the problem, they recommended Security Safe. Security Safe was very responsive, calling me back within a few minutes after my phone call and sending photos. They arranged for a repairman to come out the next day "in the afternoon." The repairman, Chris, called me at about 11am, asked if he could come over "now," said he would arrive within 30 minutes and he arrived in 20 minutes. A wire was broken from the battery to the locking mechanism. Although he offered to repair the wire, I asked about other options as we have a second AMSEC safe purchased just 2 years ago and I like that lock better. Chris explained that the safe needing repair could not accept the other type of lock, but he did give me 2 other options, recommending the less expensive of the two. I opted to go with his recommendation. Chris finished the installation, explanation of how the lock works, and all the billing paperwork, and left by 11:50 AM. I was very pleased with the prompt response of each person I interacted with at Security Safe, and their professionalism. It could not have been better!

Friendly service throughout the staff. Daniel was my sales associate who showed me a variety of safes based on what I was looking for. Daniel gave me a great deal with excellent service. I definitely recommend Daniel to all my friends and family!

Security Safe sells defective products and doesn't cover them under warranty. We purchased a high end commercial TRTL30x6 with Safe Wizard lock. In less than a year, both the lock and handle on the safe failed. Security Safe refused to cover either issue under its alleged 1 yr warranty. We had to pay emergency repair charges to another locksmith for the handle when it failed before a busy weekend and Security Safe didn't pick up their phone or provide emergency contact info. When offered a chance to make it right, Gary - the owner - told us that he didn't see anything wrong with their approach and he was fine to forego our future business. Of the 5 star reviews below, we know that one was written by an employee so I'm not sure the rest can be trusted.

What a quality place this is. I'm into security and needed a high quality safe that would fit in a tight spot. These guys hooked me up with one from American Security that I just love. The tricky part was the delivery since it had to go down a set of stairs. But the guys brought a motorized dolly, got it set in place and then bolted it to the floor. There were a couple of disconnects that we ultimately worked out. So, overall, a very good experience. I've also recommended this place to my father-in-law who is shopping for a safe. Good price, quality products and excellent delivery and installation.

We bought a use safe and the price we paid for what we got was the best deal out there. The delivery team was excellent. They took there time and was very professional. They did not touch a wall or even a door. I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for a safe.

I just purchased an AMSEC home safe from them at a price lower than what I found online. Plus their delivery service is stop notch. Both the Asian fellow and his Mexican partner were excellent, going the extra mile to make sure it was securely installed just right, at a price almost half that of white glove delivery by the online stores. I highly recommend this business. The quality of safes they sell is much better than that from Costco or the other big box stores. YouTube Sentry Safe break in.

I went to buy a safe and their salesman Tom was of no help. I explained several times I wanted a small safe for some personal items and he kept trying to sell me a huge 500 pound $1,500+ safe. No matter what I said, he kept saying that all his small safes were junk and that I had to buy a big one. He also said, and I quote "Safe technology hasn't changed in 300 years." - I guess they had electronic safes with push-buttons back in the 1700's. He basically talked me out of buying anything from him. Overall, it was an odd experience and I went over to Oakland and found a nice safe for about $800.00 by AMSEC which has a great reputation for quality.

I came across Security Safe to help install a safe I bought from another company. Their installation team was very patient in helping to quote a price and easy to work with when the date had to be changed because the safe hadn't arrived from the other company. Their office manager was very efficient and prompt in providing a certificate of insurance to show all the insurance coverage they had in case anything went wrong. I had obtained quotes from a few other installers in a 30 mile radius and their's was the most reasonable. The peace of mind from working with this classy team was priceless.

I went by to purchase a safe and i was surprised to see how may different types of safes they had. They have several different type of gun safes, jewelery safes, and home safes. I was greeted as soon as i walked in and was given a great price on the safe i purchased. They delivered and installed my safe quickly and professionally. I also found out they build vaults in home. I would definitely recommend everyone who is interested in a safe to go by and take a look.

Beware of this business! If you are looking to get bad attitude and low performance call them. I had the most awful experience with their tech Robert. He was late, he was Rude! I wish there was less than 1 star

I had a horrible experience with Robert who was rude, unreliable and tried to over charge me for a simple lock!! Took him 2 hours extra than the time he provided, he completely messed up my original lock, had no idea what he was doing and left me like that for days!!!!!!!! I would not recommend Robert to anyone in need of any locksmith service.

Kurt, the serviceman, was great (on time, friendly, professional). One star because ridiculously expensive. Came out to replace lock on front door. Also had them remove a broken key in a different lock. Trip charge was $95. Parts charge was $375 for Baldwin lock (price online for the part is $205--so they charged an 83% premium over online retail!) Had to come back because they had to order the part (which is fine). Took 30 minutes to do the replacement on the second trip. Charged for a full hour, because Kurt said the owner requires a flat charge of an hour for installing a lock regardless of how long it actually takes (though we were also charged for a full hour for the first visit, too). Total charge = $802! Parts $408; trip charge $95; labor $300 (2 hours x $150/hr). Basically we were charged an extra $175 for the part and $395 for 1.5 hours of work (comes out to $266/hour for labor).

I have taken many auto keys bought on amazon to them as they are the only company that would cut them for me without complaining about where I bought them. Every key cut has been perfect. I haven't had them program my keys, as I do them myself, but they have offered every time. I highly recommend them and will continue to take keys to them!

Let me just start by saying... should have come here first. Have two very, very old lock box keys belonging to my elderly mom with dementia. She's been misplacing them lately, so I needed to make copies. Went to two big hardware stores first and they couldn't match them. Went to A-A and within minutes he found an equally old match and made copies for me. Very friendly and fast. Highly recommend!

I've used A-A Lock for a number of services - from installing a new lock on a front door, getting keys made, etc. Recently, Chris was very helpful in getting a small lock off an heirloom treasure chest - he was incredibly patient (it took at least 15 minutes to saw the lock off) and careful not to damage the item. Thanks so much for your great service!!

Simply amazing place. This is the Promised Land of locksmiths. I called them because we needed to swap out the cylinder to our front door since it was made in China and the key associated with the cylinder is an obscure double laser cut thing that can't be replicated in the United States. Believe me, we've tried. And we were down to three keys so we needed to take action. I spoke to Mikey on the phone. He asked for pictures which I sent. We then spoke again and he said Denise was the best person to help me because she is their all-knowing purchasing guru. So I took out the cylinder myself and took it to their shop. Denise ordered me a new one with a normal North American key. She said it would take a week and it arrived in two days. All we paid for was the cylinder and a few keys. No labour to pay for since they suggested I bring it myself. Most locksmiths would try and milk me for a site visit. Now we can make copies easily whenever we want.

I had a very bad experience with A-A lock. The technician came and we discussed what needs to be done, when I asked for estimation of everything, he gave me some numbers but did not mention labor fee at all. After he was done, he charged me an additional labor fee more than 100. I called their office to complain and they just let me leave a voice message and nobody following up.

My 89 yr old father had front door lock re-keyed. He didn't realize he didn't have cash/check to pay so he called me. AA Lock tech quotes $9 for materials and $90 service fee for total of $99. Then they emailed me invoice for $110. When I asked why the difference in price, they said because extra work they had to do (emailing invoice) to collect payment. When I asked to speak to manager, they removed extra fee. Won't do business with these guys again....

Visited AAA to get keys made for a small display case housing college treasures. I met Kris who is very personable and professional ly. Kris carefully unlocked the truck showcase and made 2 keys. If you think keys, think Kris. Kris is a lifesaver. I cannot thank Kris for stellar workmanship. Kris is a superhero!

I got a set of keys from here, walked across the street to grab some breakfast for 30 min and the British dude that works here tried to tow my car. Instead of apologizing he tried to fight me. Sorry you have nothing better to do in your boring job. Keys were fine, its not that difficult. I'll just go to a kyosk at the mall next time though.

I had to pay a quick visit to get a key made for my son's bike lock which I couldn't get done at OSH. Not only was I impressed with the variety of keys they carried, the service was great and they made sure that I did not overspend doing something.

These guys are dodgy. I went in to get a replacement car key and discovered the one they would have to order would cost $180 plus $60 to program. So I ordered a replacement online for $80 and took it in for them to program. They said they couldn't program it because it was different to my original key, and even if they could it would cost them $60 to program and $60 to cut (suddenly there's a new fee?!). So I returned the key and went to my car dealer instead to get a new key. Cost $230 all up... but the key was exactly like the one I had ordered online! There is no way I believe the key I ordered couldn't be programed to my car- they just didn't want to because they didn't like me not ordering through them. I would have thought they'd still be happy to get my business. They're dodgy. I gave them a star for cutting my mailbox key that my local hardware store couldn't get right.

This place is incredible and definitely made my day! Very professional and helpful! If I could I would give this place a 10 star because of Chris! He did everything he can he made the impossible POSSIBLE to make a new key for me from the broken one I brought in. He is phenomenal and goes above and beyond with his customer service and skills! Definitely coming back to make my keys here!

Yesterday, our 16 month old locked me out of our house (while he was still inside). Frantic, I called A-A Lock and they had a locksmith at our door within ten minutes! The locksmith saved the day and quickly opened the door. The locksmith made us two extra keys while he was at our house. While the locksmith was out, he cut a key for my Toyota truck that I just so happen to need as well. A A Lock was super quick, super professional, and incredibly reasonably priced. Their work was top notch and my new truck key works just as well as my factory key.

Took in my motorcycle key and a blank to have them cut a duplicate for me so I could get it programmed when I took my bike in for service (it's a chip key that needs to be programmed to match that specific bike). They mangled the new key beyond recognition. They've offered to order a replacement, but that means taking off work early a second day to get there before they close and then making a special trip to the dealer, which wastes many hours of my time. I will update if/when they actually come through on the new key.

Ducati riders -- do you only have 1 black key and no code card? That scenario seems to happen a lot when you buy a used Duc, as it did me. I've researched this mess for months. But now I can breathe easier, because the black key was successfully copied, electronics and all, by the cool guys at AA. Start by getting the correct blank from www.motorcyclekeys.com. For me that was the Sidewinder. This blank is also good for some Aprilia and Moto Guzzi bikes. Next, take it (and your black key) to AA, and ask for George. All will be good.

March 14 2018 I contacted Island locksmith to Re-Key our office door. This is my go to company and the company I refer until today. The locksmith that performed the job was unethical, very unprofessional and breached client confidentiality all locksmiths should enforce confidentiality and privacy rights. Island locksmith technician went out of his way to release my company's privacy to a mutual client. I lost all trust with island locksmith and will be hiring another professional to Re-Key our locks. These folks can not be trusted!!!

Came in to get a few keys cut for mine and my buddy's motorcycle. We ordered kawasaki and suzuki blanks to match the original keys vs having a crap metal key. Dude over here says he won't cut any outside blanks because of "policy" policy my ass I would have paid for his cheap ass blank just for him to cut my actual kawasaki blank but his costumer service and attitude was so shitty that i just left... Now I'm headed to Bayside locksmith on Winton street where I should have went to in the first place because they've taken care of me before.

If your store has a "open" sign then why is the door locked and nobody is there??? Called the number, no answer. Saw another guy show up while writing this review out front and he did the same annoyed face as mine. Dude! Put one of those be back in 20 minutes signs up or just put a closed sign up. Inconsiderate and rude!

Island Locksmith works hard to please. This unassuming Father and Son Team does a lot out of work out of their small downtown Hayward Business. I first called them in a pinch and because they were local. But soon I found that they are very knowledgeable in all forms of locks and security. They not only retrofitted our entire office and warehouse in new classy, strong hardware, they also supplied our trucks security with Pin Locks. All of their supplies are top notch state of the art. I will give them all of our future business because of their great service and products.

I locked myself out of my bedroom and wasn't quite sure what to do. I tried to pick the lock myself after watching numerous YouTube videos but after many failed attempts, I decided to call Island Locksmith. It was Saturday morning and I called a few other companies before I called Island Locksmith, but they were trying to charge an arm and a leg just to open my bedroom door! I decided to call Island Locksmith and he immediately provided me with a very reasonable price quote and told me he could be at my house in 10 minutes. I told him I would call him back (I wanted to check if there were any other companies who would be cheaper), and after a few more attempts at other locksmiths, Island Locksmith was actually the most reasonable option. I called him back and he came right away. He was friendly, very knowledgeable, and went above and beyond, even replacing my lock, with no extra charge. They provide quick service, in and out, with exceptional service. I would definitely recommend Island Locksmith!!! Thank you for your help!!! =)

I called and ask for a car FOB programming (I mentioned I have bought fob so all I need is programming). The guy who answered my phone told me it is very expensive to program my car (I have 2014 lexus IS). He kept avoid telling me the price and just mentioned "it is very expensive to program my car" and eventually tell me its around $600-$700 for programming my fob.... obviously he does not want my business at all....

Thanks for the super service! I took my remote key fob to a dealer who told me it was no longer working .. the price quoted was around $200 for the replacement and reprogramming. Then I remembered I had called on Island Locksmith previously...and called them again. I had purchased a new fob on line...took both to Island Locksmith. He programmed the new one and then re-programmed the "broken" one!! So now I have two! Definitely recommend...

I should have written this review earlier but my last visit was so good again that I am doing it now. These folks are wonderful, friendly, knowledgable, and provide first rate service. On my first visit I had a new deadbolt that I didn't even buy there but I took it in because newly cut keys didn't work in the rekeyed deadbolt. The locksmith explained that some times a newly keyed lock and key just have a rough edge. He showed my how to "snap" the key a few times to knock the edge off. The price -- no charge. Saved me a lot as I later rekeyed every lock in the house myself to use a common key. That "snap" trick was used often. Later I wanted to rekey a lock on my screen door to match the common key. Really funky lock and for the life of me I couldn't get it out of the screen door so I could take it in. They did a home visit, ended up having to remove the screen and turn it upside down to get the pins to drop due to age and wear. Very reasonable charge and now I have the perfect lock. Most recently I had a heavy duty padlock (circular design to avoid access by a bolt cutter) for which I needed 2 duplicate keys. Multiple hardware stores did not have the right key blank. These guys did, and took the time to explain about the key blank and how it needed to be cut a little special to fit the lock cleanly. Small shop with lots of skill and service. Five stars.

Island Locksmith has a contract with me for lifetime! We first used Island Locksmith to replace our front door locks. Upon inspection, Raj brought to our attention of some very important things that we never thought of looking at, being first time home owners. Then we proceeded to get our windows replaced and the numb nuts (who are no longer in bus......FIGURES) that replaced our sliding door did not install the lock on the door correctly. Raj and Doug came in and took the part with them to try to fix it in-house but the damage was bad so we ended up ordering a new one. Doug came in and installed it sooner than expected which was GREAT in my books! Raj, Doug & Junior know what they're doing and they don't just fix & go, they teach you how to properly handle and maintain your valuables.

I needed a my front door rekeyed. I called these guys and they quoted me $45-$60. They did come promptly, but they tried billing me for 3 times this amount. Be aware of their estimates. The final bill will probably be diffferent.

A job well done! I made the phone call to Island Locksmith at 10am, and they had 2 new car keys ready for me an hour later. He then promptly met me at my car to deliver the keys and confirm that they work, and charged a very reasonable price. I will definitely use this company moving forward.

I think I just got trolled by this place. I went in to get a couple keys cut (the rounded kind) and the son of the owner cut my keys so I had high hopes. LOL! I was 100% the calibration was off because when the job was done I asked him to look since they didn't match up. He refused to look and said he had to go. I refused to pay so they took the keys. Even if I purchased them the cashier didn't even know how to ring me up wtf...Actually the son was pretty badass for how much he didn't give a shit (almost could be in an Eminem music video or something). Even reminds me of when I was younger. However, I really feel bad for the owner (this kid's dad) who actually owns this place and trusts him. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL to say the least :)

Thanks Raj & Jr for hookin this new homeowner up! You two came in and gave me a very reasonable estimate for re-key and 5 copies of keys. I had already called around the day before and you were right in the middle for pricing, plus you have me two more copies then the other two businesses had said. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks, family & friends. Thanks guys!

When I bought my house I called these guys to come out and change my locks. They were very fast & efficient. I would use them again for sure!

You know, most normal locks operate as follows: HORIZONTAL = UNLOCKED VERTICAL = LOCKED. In the interest of saving money, my hardworking (but frugal) dad decided that the guy he asked to paint our house was also somehow capable of re-doing our bathrooms, installing new cabinets and drawers in our kitchen, and changing the handles on our kitchen sink. As a result, I've had to shower in my parents' bathroom for a year, I've learned not to keep utensils in the drawers that don't open fully, and I can't even turn the sink on full blast because of an oh so cleverly placed windowsill. That said, you can pretty much imagine the job he did on our bedroom doors. Huge tangent aside, I'll get to the point. I locked myself out of one of the rooms, and Island Locksmith was the company in closest proximity to my house. They were polite and prompt on the phone, and just as prompt and polite in person. Granted it was a little painful to have to pay $50 for a 5 minute job, but it was a small price to pay compared to the cost of eventually re-doing my house! I've got a two year old, who thankfully wasn't home at the time, so I'm sure I'll find myself in a similar situation again. God forbid, but if that day comes, I'll have Island Locksmith on speed dial.

Goodness gracious, after reading Izzue's review, I thought I'd put in a good word for this locksmith. I was in a HUGE bind and they came to my rescue within two hours. I recently purchased a home and accidentally broke the door. Not only did they repair the door itself, they secured the door knob and the bolt as well. Great customer service!

Quick, professional, family business! George is pretty great, gave me a fair price for an after-hours lockout ($60), and has been smithing for over 40 years! He arrived quickly and he and his son had the door open in no time! I don't think they are great at advertising...so definitely support these local dudes if you can! PS - Their new phone number is 510-821-7321.

I was locked out of the house and started calling locksmiths from the phone book. Most of the companies with big ads were too busy or too expensive. One company would not even tell me their price over the phone and wouldn't be there for an hour, they said they would call, so I kept calling other locksmiths. We called George, he arrive same time as the other locksmith, the other guys were late & also tried to tell me it cost more because it was after 5 (we called them at 4). I went with George, he was inexpensive $50 to open the lock. He got there in 15 minutes, did not have a different rate based on the time of day. We called George again when we locked ourselves out of our new place while moving, he unlocked the screen door & showed me how to break the glass in the small window pane of the wood door when we realized that the door only unlocked from the inside. Once in the empty house he made sure it was really our place- we showed him the keys opened the door. He's a friendly & decent guy, we talked about how he used to live in the same neighborhood. Five stars for no hassle, fast arrival, working around problems, affordable, & professional. I highly recommend him.

If I could give 10 stars, I would. Steve is the definition of great customer service. Our front door lock/handle was broken. I contacted Steve, he responded quickly, he came when he said he would and put in our new locking mechanism quickly and painlessly! On top of it all, he is incredibly nice and easy to deal with! I would highly recommend Steve's Lock & Key!

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! Can I give more than 5 stars? I mean the job that was done by Steve's Lock & Key was beyond fabulous, worth more than 5 stars!!! The service was beyond amazing. I can tell Steve is very trustworthy man. He is good at what he does!!!!! I expected a really high invoice for the jobs I gave him and when I seen the invoice I was shocked to see such a decent amount. I had him service my home, my front door that I decided to fix myself many many years ago, yeah I screwed it up more than fixing it. So I called Steve, and guess what he game to the rescue!!!! He fixed it now the door shuts perfectly. So, than I needed new locks installed in my new office. Hmmm who should i call, I thought to myself?! Oh I know Steve's Lock & Key. He came out in very mannered time. He installed 4 locks on my new office and made me copies of keys. Amazing company, fabulous work, affordable prices, trustworthy man, well mannered, great customer service, all around an amazing company.

I needed to get into a cheap safe with a tubular key cylinder for the override since the batteries died before I could replace them (yes I am stupid). I mailed Steve a couple of pictures of the safe and locking mechanism/keypad and he said he didn't recognize it and that he would need to pick it. This is what I expected. I checked with another locksmith who was also helpful over email but the difference is that Steve just so happens to live near me so he offered to stop by on the way home one day and open it up. As a result of the convenience for him he gave me a huge break on the price compared to the competition. He was about 60% less....This was something that he offered up under his own volition! Steve showed up on time, was friendly, knowledgeable, skilled, and quickly accessed the safe. While he was there we discussed an unrelated topic concerning electronic deadbolts. He gave me his professional opinion and some options I wasn't aware of which was extremely helpful. A great experience. I would highly recommend calling Steve if you need an onsite locksmith.

Steve's services were excellent. We had just moved into our new home and we were handed a string of random keys. I had looked at them and said some choice words. AND, I couldn't even use the keys to open any of the f@&$ing doors!! Steve came, on time, examined all the locks around the property, said he could get me one key for all the doors of the house! He conditioned the locks, he made the keys and I no longer needed to use profanities to get inside!!

Steve is great. I called him at the end of the day and he called me right back. He had just arrived at his home but told me he would be right here to do the job. He was here in less than what he said and not only rekeyed the locks (2) he made 6 keys for me at less that I could ever pay for a key. He was fast, kept to his quote and oiled the locks as a bonus! No nonsense guy, hard working and honest. I wrote to that Devin A from Los Angeles because he put a bad comment under the wrong Company. Steve works solo and not in LA, And once you use Steve it is obvious that his level of integrity will keep business coming and a miss placed bad comment should be removed from Steves perfect score.

Steve was recommended to me by a friend who recently changed locks in his house (5 of them ) and was very happy with his work. Steve returned my call promptly, made time for me the next day and did a great job really fast. I needed my front door lock changed, he did a good job. He was fast and gave me 5 new keys. His price is reasonable. I highly recommend Steve.

The rudest company ever. When I moved in my home, I called them to rekey. They upsold me "the best lock" on the market. They were apparently supposed to give me a card with it, which is the only way I can get new keys made. Only they didn't (and I'm POSITIVE) since I keep EVERYTHING! I even had the original calendar appointment from 2009. And I have ever bit of paperwork from my house in one file. I never even knew you needed a card...so couldn't possibly "misplace" something that I didn't know existed. Also, the lock didn't fit properly and the service man was rude. After realizing I couldn't get keys made (even though I'm the owner of the home) without them or going directly to the manufacturer and paying a huge fee there to, I called. Dave was extremely rude insisting that the service person gave me a card (he wasn't there). Then he starts telling me that I tipped the technician $10 and forgot that so I must have forgotten. The lock cost $242. He basically told me I was lying. Don't do business with them. SCAMMERS!!!

I was moving back to my house after renting it out for a couple of years. I called Steve, and he was very easy to talk with to make an appointment. He arrived on time, handled everything smoothly, and provided great service. I had two different keys (on 5 cylinders) that I wanted to re-key. He made a really convenient master key that worked for both, and side entry key that would only work for the side door. He was able to even tag some of the keys with "DO NOT DUPLICATE". I am very happy with his service and my keys/doors/locks now. Thank you Steve!

I called Steve with a "sticky lock" issue that had been looked at by another locksmith a year ago, but not really fixed. The door got so stuck that I tried Steve, who was recommended by yet another locksmith out on medical leave. Steve found two problems, the door was coming loose from its mountings in the frame, and, the internal lock mechanism was dry. Steve essentially rehung the door and lubed the lock mechanism. Opening, closing and locking the door is a joy again after living with creaking and scraping. Steve does great work and provides good customer service.

Steve provides fast and professional service and he goes above the call of duty. I recently used Steve when I was locked out and I was very pleased at the level of service. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a locksmith.

I cannot say enough awesome things about Frank and Carolyn. Carolyn managed the phones, and was remarkably helpful in answering all my questions about getting the locks on my new home rekeyed. Frank then came out and was super professional, and did a wonderful job. Best of all, they offered some of the most competitive pricing of all the Bay Area locksmiths that I spoke with. I couldn't be happier with the entire experience, and would highly recommend Acme to anyone with locksmithing needs.

WOW! I couldn't be more satisfied. After reluctantly discharging a housekeeper, I needed a quick re-key on the front door just to cover all bases, and called them at 1:30 pm. Left a message, and they were back to me within 5 minutes. Having a tight schedule, I wasn't available the times they proposed. Almost embarrassed, I said, "How about this afternoon?" A quick check with her guy in the field, she confirmed, and Frank showed up 30 minutes later! Pleasant, fast, courteous; this is service as it should be. And the cost was fair, and unexpectedly low. They're now in my contact file, the only locksmith.

Absolutely perfect experience! Scheduling was a breeze and appointment went flawlessly. Not only was he kind and courteous (taking off his shoes upon entering the house even though I assured him he didn't have to), he did a fantastic and thorough job for a great price.

I locked myself out of my condo at 4:45am and called Frank who arrived within 30 minutes and opened the lock in under 5 minutes. Not only was he friendly and efficient, he charges way less ($65) than other locksmiths who quoted me as high as $300! Thank you Frank for saving my morning!

Highly recommend Frank for all your locksmith needs. Yelp reviews are right on, he arrives early, offers to remove his shoes inside the home, and is quick and efficient. We had him rekey all the locks in the home and make new keys for everyone. Prices were more than fair. Even when we could not find one of the keys, Frank was able to do the job without any problem. Professional, efficient and fair, this company has it all. Easy to make an appointment, we were able to find a time that worked the very next day.

Frank was wonderful to work with and we will definitely call him with future requests! Our experience was in line with what other Yelpers have said, but still worth mentioning: - Came 5 minutes early, with everything in hand. - Took off his shoes without us having to ask, which is great since we recently redid our hardwood floors. - Required minimal direction and incredibly knowledgeable about our lock systems. - Very considerate and efficient. - Reasonable prices.

I totally recommend A Acme Mobile Locksmith to anyone who needs locksmith. This is my 3rd time to have Frank come over to my house over 4 years. I still love his service and I'm feeling good that I know who to get when I have any lock problems/needs!!! This time was to replace a door knob & a dead bolt, and re-key the door knob for the remodeling. He did a great job in a short time. He is still the same guy after 4 years who - is very professional with great skills - is very polite and mild-mannered - gives honest opinions - comes always on time or even earlier than the scheduled time - takes his shoes off to go into the house without me, asking him - educates customers - has a very reasonable price

I rarely do Yelp reviews, but I must say Frank is amazing. My lock was dysfunctional and Frank was on time to check it out. Needless to say, the lock was back in place and working again! He is very detailed and explains what he is doing so you aren't out of the loop. He also took off his shoes before coming into my house which shows how much he respects his costumers. Everything he did was very thorough and quick. I have never seen a locksmith work so efficiently. Not only was he the best locksmith I've come across, but his pricing was more than fair. I definitely recommend Frank to anyone who needs a locksmith! There is a reason he's 5 stars all the way!

Let me just say this: If more businesses are run by people like Frank/Acme, then the world will be a better place. Really, I'm actually feeling guilty that I waited this long to give Frank a well-deserved 5-star review! A couple of months ago, I lost my mailbox key and had to have the lock replaced. I found Frank on Yelp like all other people here and made my call. Frank was very precise and courteous when scheduling my appointment. He did not give me a "window" of time that he would show up--he said 8:15am the next day, and he knocked on my door at 8:15am the next day. Frank said it would take 15 minutes and he came back with new keys before I could finish cooking my breakfast. He even offered me $10 discount! I was absolutely dumbfounded by the quality and speed of his service and I have been referring him to every one I know who needs a locksmith in the area Seriously, if you are in this annoying situation of having to get your lock replaced, Frank is your guy and he makes the process like a breeze.

Thank you, Yelpers! You got this 5 star average so, so right! Frank was quick, professional, courteous, reasonably-priced, capable, and completely reliable. He saved me a lot of money compared to another Yelp-recommended locksmith. It seems like it should be stressful changing locks, but he took the stress out of the process. And he likes dogs. Easiest 5 stars ever!

Frank is the man for all your locksmith needs! I used him when I needed to change all my locks at my place. He was so prompt that he showed up 10 minutes before my appointment at the top of my doorstep, with tools in hand ready to go. Now that's what I call great customer service! Frank was really nice and courteous. He realigned my door since there was a small gap, gave me a discount since I was a first-time customer, and even made extra spare keys for me for free. What a deal! I highly recommend Acme and will definitely call Frank in the future. Also, I wouldn't have found him if it weren't for all the wonderful reviews here on yelp. Thank you!

I used Acme to rekey my entire house - seven handles and seven dead bolts. I had no keys for any of them, so they all required picking and re-keying. I called three places and Acme was the cheapest by about three times! Other places were ~$60-70 service fee, ~$20-30 per lock to pick, and ~$20-30 per lock to re-key. Acme was $45 service fee and $10 per lock. He didn't charge me for the keys or any of the little extra pieces he needed to put in, like custom pins! He fit me in his schedule quickly, and stayed over three hours to get the job done right! I was really impressed with Frank's work and price, so I wanted to review positively.
