Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

We are located at the corner of Libbie and West Broad Street.  3 Store behind Priscilla’s Lingerie on Spencer Road.  Call us at 804-282-6060 if you can’t find us.

What are your hours?

Our office showroom is open M-F 8am-5pm.

I just moved into a new house, what should I do?

At the very least you should immediately have all your doors rekeyed because you don’t know who was given keys in the past by the former owner.  Every place that a key can go in should be rekeyed to fit a new key.  Also, get a spare key cut for emergencies.

I’m locked out of my car, can you help?

Yes, American Lock & Key has all the necessary tools and training to get you into your car safely.  Be careful not to get lured by the promise of $15 service call.  If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Are you a licensed locksmith in Virginia?

Yes, American Lock & Key is licensed with the Department of Criminal Justice.  DCJS # is 11-3052.

Can you make car keys?

Yes! We can make you a car key, even if you have zero working car keys. If you need spare keys, we can make extra car keys, even high security chip keys, laser keys, transponder keys, remotes, and key FOBS.

American Lock & Key came out very quickly and rekeyed all our locks. Scott was fast, friendly and gave us lots of helpful advice for maintaining our equipment going forward. He even gave us some great recommendations for local businesses for other projects around the house we have on our (very long) new homeowner to-do list. Highly recommended.
