How to find a reputable locksmith

Search engines

Don’t just trust the first result. “I’m feeling lucky” is not always working. You just lost your only car key – how lucky do you really think your are at the moment? So no.. in most cases – “Phoenix locksmith”, “Car locksmith Phoenix” and similar websites that pops up – these are not real business names, just people who got that URL in order to target people like YOU. Try to dig a little dipper and find a real local car locksmith.

Avoid Shady Estimates

Most locksmiths know their craft. That’s a fact. Most con artists will fail in details. That being said, a real car locksmith will, in most cases (if not all), quote you a price – based on your car make, year, model and your location – that is accurate down to the penny. Most scammers will simply give you a very basic shady estimate “that can go up at time of service, once the locksmith is on site”. So listen carefully and make sure you know the final price BEFORE you give away your location.

Check with your insurance company

Most insurance policies are sold with “roadside service coverage”. That means that your insurance company will either pay part or all of your bill. Even if not – your insurance company can contact one of its trusted locksmith contractors (or more) to get you some quotes.

Local Car Dealer

Some car dealers (Definitely not ALL of them, but we heard about some) will try to scare you. They will normally tell you that “This is a unique key that NOBODY can program BUT THE CAR DEALER” – Yeah, right.. Some will even go further – telling you that if a locksmith touch your car they will void any warranty since the car wasn’t serviced at the dealership and someone tampered with the immobilizer.

Check with your friends & family

Embarrassing as it is, it happen to everyone. You don’t have to hide it or be shy. Go on your social network and post a question “Can anyone recommend a good locksmith?” – you’ll be surprise how many of your friends have used a locksmith before. Too shy? Call a friend or a family member and ask if they know of a local locksmith.

Called Lock Guyz on Sunday evening 3/8/15 after losing the one and only key I had for my car. I spoke to Barry who was very informative and was quick to come to my aid. He was at my home in about an hour and was able to provide me new key in no time. His service is very affordable as I found him to have the best rates in the 4 companies I called. I recommend Lock Guyz highly! Thank you for your service Barry!
