Yes all the time back in Branson before moving to Austin Fl we re-keyed tons of the businesses on the strip and did door re-keying and all the malls and strip centers.
I have in stock most commercial store front door locks and replacement back door locks.
For car lockouts most of the time we pick the door lock open this is just like using your own key to open the door so we do not use any devices that may scratch your car in any way. On the rare occasion we do need to use a special tool we only use tools that are protected to prevent any scratching or damage.
We provide very safe professional car and truck openings.
Most of the time NO
I have not had to take a door panel off in a few years now. With the new tools we use we almost never have to remove a door panels to make you a new key when it is lost.
We will decode your lock by sight reading or using special decoding tools this saves us time and lets us offer you a lower price as it takes us less time to make you a new key.
Most of the time NO
Many locksmiths that do not know how to decode locks will tell you they need to change your ignition and charge you extra for this when it is not needed to be done.
The only time we ever need to change out a ignition is when the ignition is all jammed up like with a stuck key in it or is outright broke inside.
Even with stuck keys or bent wafers may times we still do not need to replace the ignition as we can rebuilt it for much less by replacing the inside wafers with new ones.
If someone says they need to change out your ignition call us first before they do we may be able to save you money.
In fact Austinn Texas is one of the largest if not the biggest locksmith scammer market in the United states
A scammer locksmith is a dishonest locksmith that will try anything to con you out of your money , they can be easily spotted on the internet be ads that are to good to be true . for example " 15 to 29 dollar service call " Another example of a tactic they use is for example , if you happen to call one of these scammer companies they will quote you a very expensive price for a job and see if you bite , if you don't they generally will call back and lower their price until you accept it then change the price again when they get out to the job .
Yes we can save you a lot of money over buying a new computer brain for your Lexus or Toyota and a few other cars as well.
Many Lexus and Toyota cars when you louse your key the only way to fix this is to
Go to the car dealer and pay them to replace the cars computer costing you $1200 to $1800 or more and this can take a few days.
Or you can have us reflash the computer wiping out the old key information and we reprogram in the new key information using you same computer this saves you a lot of money.
We do ! I suggest getting 3 quotes ! But be aware of scammer type behavior ! If you can't talk directly to the locksmith it may be a scam / ask about your exact problem and ask if they have an exact solution if they don't they're probably scammers .
