“People working there are great always go that extra mile to ensure their customers are well taken care of. I recently had trouble with an ignition switch thought it was going to cost me a lot to repair. I took it to them and in less than 30 mins was on my way. Would be nice if everyone ran their business this way. If you are having troubles call them”

“A & B Locksmith is a great company. I had once lost my key to get into my old Ford Explorer. John came to my house and brought a ton of keys to find out that fit. Also, found one to start it as well. He was very courteous and went out of his way to help me. Another instance, one of the workers had come out to my grandma’s to change the locks on her safe. He was very professional and personable. I would recommend this company to anyone. They are fast and sufficient!!”

“Friendly, quick and reasonably priced. He told me $45 dollars to unlock a Kia Rio and I gave him $45 plus $5 tip for doing exactly what he said. Great A++”

“I needed to replace a front door knob which is keyed the same as my other entry door as well as the dead bolts on both doors. I arrived on Christmas Eve and these guys immediately got me a great door knob which was extremely similar to my original which was a very old knob. They keyed the new lock to the old key; cut me an additional key as well as a car key. All of this was done with the employees being very courteous and also with great conversation. They were very polite to me and even allowed me to take my dog inside with me because it was cold outside and my dog is old with achy joints. I am grateful for the great service and the price was shockingly low. I could not have done the same at the big hardware stores for the same price. It definitely would have cost me more without a doubt. If ever I need to obtain further services, you can bet I will return to them. Thanks guys”
