How Much Does a Tempe Locksmith Cost?
There is no such thing as a $9-$49 locksmith. Those quotes are a scam. To open a door a legitimate Locksmith of Tempe will charge between $100- $150 during regular hours. An average house rekey will be around $200 for a 3-door home (price varies based on the total number of lock cylinders). The important thing is: ALL REAL LOCKSMITHS will tell you upfront THE EXACT COST to rekey your home for a set number of locks.
Can a Locksmith Replace Car keys?
Yes, locksmith make car keys all the time. Making a car key consists of cutting the key and often programming the key to the vehicle. Locksmith can cut and program laser car keys, FOBs, VATS keys and standard car keys (the old metal-only keys). If all you need is a spare key or a FOB/remote, order they key / car remote online and bring it to us for cutting and programmin.
Do You Offer Discounts for Tempe Students?
Yes! ASU students get 10% off of all labor charges for any emergency locksmith service, including the service call. Not an emergency? Book lock service on our website and save up to $20 (discounts cannot be combined).
We had an excellent experience with Acme Locksmith. It started out with a great interaction with their receptionist/schedule coordinator, she was professional, efficient and very polite. They were able to quickly get us on their schedule to fix a lock for us. I inquired about some other lock types and the tech gave me expert feedback and advice. He also gave us tips to ensure we didn't encounter the same problem with the lock on our door at home. I'm confident he saved us money in the long run. I found this company to be well priced. It was all in all a great interaction, I highly recommend this company. I will keep them in my contact list and only use them again for future lock issues.read more

I've always been careful where I leave my keys, unfortunately with age I've found that the thing I do best now is losing stuff. Sadly my keys are not immune to my senility or forgetfulness. I've recently gone about trying to temper this problem by making copies of my keys, but the big box stores have your most commonly used keys/locks which is fine for most of my keys but I had about four high quality locks that apparently don't move enough product to justify keeping in stock. I was referred here by an ACE hardware employee. To my surprise this store has just about every key possible (and more) the keys I needed had to practically be made by hand from some of their stock one at a time. The extra cost? none, granted the cost per key was a tad bit more than the limited ones the big box stores carry, however the cost for over a dozen keys made (all by hand and sizing) were still a fraction of the cost of one new lock. In my case, I did have to bring the locks with me so each key could be confirmed it worked, but only took 20 minutes and that was mostly the employee waiting for me to stop fooling around with all the interesting locks they have at the store for demonstration. I strongly encourage those of you to try this location out. I did not have them come to my location to do a "lock out" or unlock something for me, but I'm certain their service would be just as stellar if they did. I see there is one low rated review in regards to a programming a key for a car. I am not certain what specifically the dealer told that gentleman, but I can assure you in my case I opted to have acme do it - the dealership wanted to charge 799.99 + labor for extra keys and programming, ACME - 235 + tax for the same amount of work. I'll be having ACME take care of my lock needs from now on, I can see why they have and A+ rating with the BBB.read more

Called to setup the appointment to have all locks in a new home re-keyed. The manager/dispatcher was super helpful and made it easy to decide what services were needed. Ryan, the technician, showed up an hour later and was also very professional and nice to work with. Ryan is a perfectionist in his work and wouldn’t let anything go half done. He reset my garage door openers so no other opener except the ones I have would work and realigned two doors that weren’t locking easily. Highly recommend!read more

We locked ourselves out of our house a couple of weeks ago. Robert with ACME Locksmith was at our house within 15 minutes. It was late afternoon on a Friday. Robert got us in no time. He was very efficient and very knowledgeable and friendly. After not being able to get through one lock (only because he didn’t want to damage it), he had to bust into our garage entry door lock. He was able to pop it apart with barely a scratch (it was a new lock). I was amazed that he got it open so quickly. He warned us that it might ruin the lock, but it worked perfectly. I would definitely use ACME again.read more
