Excellent service, excellent pricing, fast work

Jerry came out to re-key our new house and I must say I couldn't be more pleased. Setting up the appointment was easy. He was ontime and super helpful My wife told him where we needed the locks to be re-keyed and he even came up with a creative solution to get us what we wanted. He even helped us out with a lock that anyone else would normally have charged us to replace! ~ Edward B

Hired Busy Bees to re-key six locks and cut six keys. Corresponded with them over the weekend and we set an appointment for the following Tuesday. Work was done quickly and our keys work perfectly. No surprises when it came time to pay. ~ SpotsAndFriday

Locksmith that is Honest & Ethical!

It was Sunday, last day of a Holiday weekend (4th of July). We spent the day at the beach. The sun had just gone down, we were all wet from being in the water. Getting back to our truck we realized our keys were lost. We spent the next hour or so looking everywhere between the truck and beach for the keys. No success. Realizing we were going to have to call a locksmith and pay who knows how much, I started resarching.. First place I called gave me a quote and a 2 1/2 hour ETA. I accepted it and figured due to the time of day/week that it was as good as it gets. Seeing how we had time to kill, I decided to call another locksmith to compare. I called Busy Bees and and explained my situation. She told me, yes it was a busy high volume time but that she could have someone take care of me in 30 minutes regardless. The quote was just as good as my first, plus she knocked it down some due to us being a military family. She asked who I called first. When I told her she had nothing bad to say of them, actually said they were pretty repatable too. I thought that was very professional since most places will trash another in order to get the job. I cancelled the other locksmith and went with Busy Bees. In a half hour Jerry showed up just as I was told. He was very friendly and made us feel that our problem was now his problem and that he was going to fix it. That put us all at ease. Especially me, my wife and 2 little girls were wet and cold and ready to be done with evening. First he opened the bed cover to look inside in case the keys were in there to avoid having to make an ignition key and to save us on the charge. The keys weren't in there, but I sure did appreciate the try. It didn't seem to take long at all for him to make the key. It was also a great deal cheaper to make than expected due to the key not having a chip in it, which it was thought to have. He could've charged us as if it did, and we wouldn't have known the difference. We were back on the road and warm again before the other locksmith would even have arrived. When we lost our keys and realized we were going to have one made for us at that time of night, we were expecting it to be like being at the mercy of a pirate with nothing we could do about it. Instead, it felt like a cool guy showing up out of nowhere that made our problem his problem that he was going to fix. What could've been a nightmare that I'd never live down with the family, turned into a good story we'll tell when we talk about our vacation in the future. We're moving to San Diego next month. You can bet I'll be keeping your business card in my wallet in case I need a locksmith again, or if I find anyone else needing one too. Thank you for the great service, all businesses should make their customers feel this way!. ~ John Stanley
