I lost my truck key on Easter Sunday. When I called AAA, they said I would have to wait until Monday for service; that was unacceptable as I had to head home to California. I called Amerikey, they showed up within 20 minutes. The locksmith was courteous and professional. He made a new key for my 2014 Dodge Ram in 10 minutes.

Amazing customer service and communication. From the time we called until the locksmith showed up they continued to keep in touch with us to make sure all was okay. And after the service was complete another phone call to again make sure all was finished well. Thank You

The response was excellent. The technician Ido was very professional and unlocked the safe quickly-with respect to the debris that he may cause in the process. Very impressed. However, I was stunned at the $218.00 I was charged for him to simply pick (no drilling) the lock that took less time than the time it took to write the check!! I I would recommend their work but be prepared to dig deep in your pockets! VERY PRICEY!!! I would look a little farther for a more reasonably priced locksmith.

I was locked out of my van and Googled a locksmith to come and open my car door. I spoke to another company before I got to Amerikey. The other company seemed shady on the phone and was mumbling when I asked for a price. When I called Amerikey the representatives was very professional on the phone and explained to me the pricing clearly over the phone, giving me confidence to order the service. The locksmith came to open my van within 10 minutes from the time I got off with the phone representative. The locksmith was also in contact with me before he arrived. He opened my door within literally 2 minutes and charged me only $80. I must say I'm quite impressed with the service having someone come to me within 10 minutes. Nice job guys, keep it up you got a customer for life, hopefully I won't get locked out again though.
