I contacted Bob to come to a property and got back to me very quick. Came out, got the job done for my client that just bought the house and did a great job!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone else and will keep this company in mind for my other clients.
Bob did a great job! I just moved into a new place and needed my locks rekeyed, he came out to my house and did it much cheaper than home depot. It was quick and quite cost efficient. I would highly recommend him!
Jason was awesome! He came to my house the day I called him. He was able to fix my lock in 10 minutes. I highly recommend this company, and asking for Jason! He was professional and prompt. So grateful my lock is fixed!
They were wonderful! Very fast, professional, and affordable. Would definitely use again!
Bob helped making the re-keying of our locks on 1st home simple and easy! He was prompt on arriving during our scheduled appt time, and was in and out quickly! We would highly recommended to all our friends and family. We hope to have Bob back soon, as we would like to re-key a couple more locks once we install our security doors. Great Customer Service!
We purchased an older home and needed a ton of locks repaired and rekeyed. The big job we wanted done was the fresh install on the old front door.
I found Bob's business using YELP, he has a lot of experience so I decided to give him a call. Bob gave us his rates and what to expect via text to my text inquiry. He let me know upfront that the date we were looking at he would be on another job from 12-1pm but he wanted to give himself an hour window before doing our locks. So we planned for between 2-3pm. I knew by what he had told me that he may be hung up on another job seeing that some jobs may take longer.
If you are patient he IS SO worth the time and he is super affordable. He is very honest, informative, and kind. He informs you of exactly what he sees going on w/the existing locks if he needs to and he can change out locks and re-key pretty quickly.
Bob gets plenty of business so you should prepare for him to run a little over the allotted time b/c like he tells you before the job, he can lose track of the time while he's working in the more complicated locks other clients may run into. I was witness to that w/my complicated fresh install on the older door. He was COMPLETELY focused on that job, instead of his phone, until he was through.
Not only did he install a lock on a tough older door, he was able to assist in adjusting, changing out, even swapping out some door knobs/locks that were misplaced around the house, and rekeying the other 3 entry doors after doing all that other stuff they needed done to them. He never got frustrated or mad. Thank you so much Bob!!!
Professional, courteous, and the price was reasonable. I don't leave a lot of reviews but bob exceeded my expectation. Highly recommend!
Robert was awesome. He came out on a Saturday, arrived exactly on time and finished 4 locks in 30 minutes. Even though it was his last call of the day (after 5 pm) and on a Saturday, he was totally pleasant and very nice. I wish all customer service was this good.
Prior to meeting Bob I told him if he was half as impressive as the reviews on Yelp say, I would be impressed. I am far more impressed after Bob came to my rescue last night. I texted him to say someone had been in my house while I was at work, that I was creeped out and needed him to change all the locks in my house his first appointment. He texted me right back and said he would be at my house between 7-8 that night! And he came and changed everything and made me feel safe again. Every lock in my house, including the garage were rekeyed to one key! And did he charge me an outrageous price? Take advantage of a woman who lives alone and was obviously scared? Not at all. Call Bob if you ever need a locksmith - one that is honest, reliable, ethical, oh and not hard to look at!
I needed my locks changes ASAP I called Bob and he was at my house within 2 hours , he was very polite and professional. I would recommend him anytime to friends and family.
Bob was awesome! Very competent, professional and rates were very reasonable. Came out immediately when my mom passed away and I needed to secure her house. Did a great job installing a new deadbolt and re-keying locks. Was very happy with his service and will use him again without hesitation. Highly recommended.
I locked myself out of the room and Bob showed up in 35 mins after I called him and unlocked my door super fast. He literally saved my day. He's a really sweet guy and is great as his job.
Bob Parnell is a talented locksmith, extremely reasonable and a great guy. I always call him when I need the best possible locksmith at the best possible price. You won't be disappointed!
My roommate locked himself out our bathroom at 8:30pm and Bob was over in no time to get it open for us. Great service and highly recommended.
Bob was great after I locked myself out tonight. I called him at 5:09 pm today he got here, unlocked my apartment door and left by 6:01 pm. Did all that for 60$ and paid him via Venmo, all very simple. I do think he takes other forms for a fee but Venmo was alright for me!
Bob came out immediately and helped me re-key 6 locks for a better price than anyone else I contacted for a quote. Thanks!
Talk about fast and great service! I had called A Better Cheaper Locksmith around mid October. At the time they did not pick up but I received a call shortly after from A Better Cheaper Locksmith. I told him my situation, my wife and I just purchased a new house and needed some locks replaced.
Just like Yelp says, 3 locks re-keyed with 2 keys for only $45. Each lock after is about an extra $20 I believe. The locksmith showed up to my house and rekeyed our entire home in about 15-20 minutes. He was very pleasant and prompt on his service. He even answered a few questions that I had about electronic locks and assured me I could have them installed if needed.
I would highly recommend A Better Cheaper Locksmith!
My husband and I recently moved into a home and decided we wanted to rekey our house. I researched quite a few places and ABCL was the cheapest with the best reviews. We called and were able to set up an appointment for the next day!
He was on time and worked with our schedule. We got 8 locks rekeyed for $145 and 4 free keys!
My fiancé and I purchased our first property in Sacramento, and have been "winging it" along the way. We thought it would be smart to change the locks for our new tenants, so they would have some peace of mind. We live in the Bay Area, however, we are unfamiliar with Sacramento. The first thing I did, of course, is Yelp for someone reputable. The first business/person that came up on the highest ranking was A Better Cheaper Locksmith! I first thought to myself, "how could someone have such high reviews?" But after reading a bunch of reviews, I thought I'd give Bob a call. He didn't answer right away because he was already on a job, but he quickly returned my call, and was immediately accommodating. He was able to come out the same day, even with just a few hours notice.
When Bob showed up, he was super professional, efficient and no hassle. We informed him that we had to leave promptly for the dreadful drive back to SF, and he didn't flinch. He quickly got the job done, and we were on our way.
I would highly recommend Bob and his business to anyone looking for a reliable, professional, efficient locksmith.
We will be using his services from here on out for all of our future properties.
This company has such a catchy name! The owner, Bob, is very sincere, polite, professional and thoughtful! We made an appt easily with him, and when Bob was delayed, he texted us so we knew he was held up buy another job.
Bob is personable, and tries to give the best service he can.!
I would sincerely recommend his company to anyone needing a professional locksmith! His prices are very fair and his work is meticulous, clean, perfect!
I am attaching photos of the door he worked on:
