They were prompt and neat. I like the email that I received afterwards that showed several pictures of the finished work along with the receipt. Great company!

Review by Sharon S. in Bear, DE
This company does not know how to re key locks so dont hire for that. Also long wait times and a lack of scheduling an appointment also bad customer service. He also scratched all my locks up and offered would pay for it due to the poor workmanship.

Project: Find a Locksmith Service
I had a great experience with this company. My other contractors locked themselves out of a property about 2 hours away from where I live. I was able to work with the dispatcher to provide electronic proof that I owned the property and had someone there in about an hour. This was actually about an hour earlier than I was originally told, which was both good and bad - great if I was present, but the other/locked-out contractor had already left and planned to return at the original quoted time. A bit of a headache, but it worked out in the end. I was sent a text update when the locksmith was on his way and the dispatcher was very good at answering my questions/resolving my issues. The price was also a little higher than quoted, because they were unable to pick the lock. However they broke the lock, replaced it, and keyed it to match our other key (the one the contractors had), which was probably more helpful in the long run and will prevent this from happening again.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
