Affordable, responsive, and knowledgeable. Scott did a great job!
Pete Price
I'm leaving this on behalf of my mother and my business. My business has been working with American Lock & Key for a few months now. As someone who performs digital marketing and SEO I can tell theiy care and hard work has been amazing for the local locksmiths they help.Second, my mother has used this company for anything "locksmith", she has needed. That includes emergency locksmith services, new door locks, or rekeying locks at her business.They are great and would consistently recommend.

Scott was quick, clean, knowledgeable, informative and very personable. I appreciated the same day service.

I am very happy with the locksmith service I received. They were able to install high-security locks on my house with a door buzzer system.

Had a key made. It was quick, friendly, easy, and cheap. So many locksmiths don't make keys.
Joseph Maltby
I came here to get my broken key fixed. They were so fast (5 minute fix), efficient, and informative.
Kaitlynn Herrington
I can't say enough how great this group is! My car key broke off in the ignition on Tuesday. When I called, the technician who answered the phone was very empathetic and helpful! Barry diligently worked to retrieve the broken half of my key from the ignition and removed it after 15-20 mins and cut me two new keys. I thought that I would have to buy a new ignition switch, but that wasn't the case and for that, I am very grateful! Thank you for everything!
