Description Of Locksmith Services:
I called at 9:30am on a Sunday morning. My sister (lives in Palm Harbor) was out of town, and her 20yo son was home alone. An ex-friend of his who was angry attempted to cause a problem by announcing a party at my nephew’s house the night before on FB. Luckily, several of us saw the notice and intercepted, but my sister and her son realized this kid used to have a key to their house and probably still does. She called me early Sunday morning and asked if I could help him get the locks changed before he went to work Sunday afternoon. I called Florida Key and left a voice mail at 9:30am, with a message that it was not an emergency but that I would like get the locks changed that day if possible.
Jim called me back within 15 minutes. I explained the situation, he was very nice, and asked if he could meet me at her house between 11:30 and 12noon. My sister wanted the deadbolts and knob locks changed on two doors that all used the same key. He showed us the locks and how he would change the cylinders out, then when one of the deadbolts that had not been used in a long time was frozen he showed us how it would not work and why he could not remove the cylinder. We asked him to just change out the entire lock and key to match the others, which he did. He even had two different deadbolts on the truck and went through the options of the two with the differences in price point and warranty and such.
It took a bit over an hour to change the cylinders in three locks, and completely change out the lock of another. He gave us two keys and made us extra at our request. He was very nice, extremely knowledgeable, and the price was fair. The Sunday service call to Palm Harbor was $68, each rekeyed cylinder was $21, and the new deadbolt that was replaced was $100. Each extra key after the first two free were $3 each. He was fast and efficient, and clearly knows his job. I would (and will) call him.
