Exceptional Service

We had problems with the door leading out to our deck. We called Dave for help. He was over at our house in two hours to install a new lock set. He provided great service and truly cares about his customer needs. He is patient and professional. I highly recommend him for your lock and key needs!

My name Michele, I came out of CVS Ballenger Center Drive only to find out I locked my keys in my car. The windows were down about 3 to 4 inches. Too small for my forearm. Then, a Dave’s Lock & Key Van pulled up and parked right next to me. I said “excuse me sir, I locked my keys in my car…do you have something to reach my keys on the seat.” “yes I do”- Wonderful I said, asked his name & he said Dave. Not 2 seconds later my keys were placed right in my hand! I offered Dave a $5.00, he refused. You are an angel I said, I’ll pray for you. He said well you can leave me a review, here is my business card. I told him as soon as I get home, I’ll write the review. In the meantime I’ve placed his business magnet right on my refrigerator. I can assure you If I ever need a locksmith…for home…whatever…. I will be sure to call Dave at Dave’s Lock & Key. These hard time times in our country….we never really seem to focus on all the good people in this world. They go beyond the call of duty, out of their hearts. Not looking to make a quick dollar. Dave is one of those people!

Great Service

I recomend Dave’s service to anyone who needs a reliable locksmith. I was locked out in the cold, and he arrived in less than fifteen minutes. His price was very reasonable, and he was extremely polite.
Thank you Dave. πŸ™‚


Dave Saves the Day!

I had a piece of electronic equipment with a keyed interlock switch, but no key. Without the key, it’s just a piece of junk. Dave made a key from scratch in about 20 minutes and I’m back in business. Thanks Dave!

I highly recommend Dave’s Lock & Key for both your home and commercial locksmith needs. He is courteous, professional and gets the job done right. He handles all of our locksmith needs at our business which are highly demanding, yet no job is too large or too small for Dave to handle. He is very responsive and comes prepared for any condition. Thanks Dave for taking such good care of your customers.

Dave Was Very Professional

Dave was very professional and thorough with the issues we had concerning two different entryways in the home. He was directed to the issues and had them resolved very quickly. I would give him a 5 out of 5 if he had this rating system in place. Thanks Dave!

Dave came over late yesterday afternoon and replaced our kitchen door lockset. Despite the fact that it was a Sunday and the start of the Christmas holiday, his price was reasonable and he even rekeyed the deadbolt to match.

Dave’s is great!

Five star experience with Dave- he arrived on time, rekeyed and repaired several locks in my new home, provided expert and honest advice about one that is 120 years old, and he did it all professionally and for a very reasonable price. You really couldn’t ask for anything more!

Thank you so much for coming to our rescue so quickly, after we locked our keys in the car heading home from vacation. You were so quick getting the door unlocked and getting us on our way.

I just had Dave come out to rekey my new house. He arrived right on time and was very professional. He even helped me take down a fire alarm I couldn’t reach so I could change the battery. I would highly recommend.

Our front lock finally bit the dust one Friday evening (at the start of a holiday weekend, no less!) and left us stranded outside. Dave was there within 25 minutes and saved the day. Professional, polite, and he did a great job getting us in our home and replacing our lock. I hope we won’t need a locksmith again, but if we do, I’m definitely calling Dave!
