Allen helped me change our locks to our house. He was friendly and responsive. Also, he gave me suggestions to help me with ideas around other locks I was contemplating using inside the home. Not only is he knowledgeable, he is reliable and follows through with the job. I called him again for some other work and he helped me with that also. Thank you Allen.Shaun J.
Allen was everything you could hope for. He exceeded every expectation. He was professional, great communication, expert at his trade and affordable. I called for assistance and his Voicemail clearly stated that he was busy for the day and would not be able to respond until the following day. But, he called same day (exceeded expectations) and was able to fit me into his schedule. He showed up and kept me informed of how the locks worked, what he would need to do, and accomplished it quickly. Rarely do I post reviews, but when someone exceeds expectations, it is the least I can do. I would hire him for future projects!Nick B.
Allen, thank you so much for coming out and helping with the lock change out and your good advice. You are appreciated.Mick G.

Allen went above and beyond my expectations. He showed up on time and went out of his way and saved me hundreds of dollars and a lot of grief. If you are in need of a great locksmith he is the man to call.Alan T.
I have had Allen do locksmith work for me a few times over the years and his work has always been successful and trouble-free. Today I asked him to look at a sticking deadbolt that has bothered me for a few years. He told me over the phone that I could fix the problem with lubrication and he stayed with me on the phone until I finished it successfully.Tom D.
Wonderful service..can not say enough good things about Allen. Last year on Memorial Day weekend (2012) my hubby hit his head under one of our cabins and suffered a brain injury...he was rushed down to Doctors Hospital in Modesto...I followed in the car and in the wee hours of the 27th (a Sunday) I remembered that coffee pot...So Sunday we called Allen and asked if he could help us out...he asked my daughter to take a photo of the key on her I-phone...made a key...went to the house, then called us back to say coffee pot was off and did we want some lights turned off, or left on. When was the last time you have seen service like that ??? Thank you Allen.Jeanne S. - Mountain View, Calif.
Prompt and courteous service! So reasonably priced that I over paid him because I felt bad lol! He was able to very quickly make keys for our locks. Returned our call promptly too! Highly recommend this locksmith!Anamarie B.
I called Allen in a dire need to get in my 2003 Chevy suburban. While the engine was running I locked my keys in the car. This man on a cold and rainy day called me back in less than 5 minutes, said he would be here in less than 10. Unlocked my truck and I was on my way.Michael A. - Sparks, Nevada
Allen was called to re-key a home that had just closed the day before. He walked into chaos and he knew what to do even without a copy of the key just by seeing the lock. He also was to answer all the questions I had. He was just great!Suzanne M. - Sonora, Calif.
Have used Allen several times after moving to Twain Harte and always found him friendly and extremely competent. His pricing is very fair and I cannot recommend him highly enough if you have lock needs in this area!Mike F. - Twain Harte
Wow, are we impressed with the superior service from Allen. If I could give 10 stars I would!! I called to have my door rekeyed and we are from out of town. Allen took my information and by the next day, our doors were rekeyed and ready to go. Thank you Allen for contacting me and helping me so quickly. We appreciate your great service.Barbara O. - Pleasanton, Calif.
We called Allen to re-key our home in Twain Harte. He returned our call the next day and was able to make an appointment convenient for us the same week. Speaking with him ahead of time we got all the specifics worked out - he gave us options and recommendations. He arrived on time, had everything he needed, finished the entire job within the hour and charged a very reasonable price. We couldn't be happier with his service and would use him again if needed. Plus he was a very nice guy.Caren F. - Sunoi, Calif.
I just bought a new home in Jamestown and Allen did a great job of working with my limited schedule. He was prompt, professional, and did a fantastic job. I highly recommend Allen for all of your locksmith needs.Donald R. - Jamestown, Calif.
Allen, if this was must last $10 bill, it would be well spent. Thank you for all you’ve done, all these years. Your friend.Mike K. - Sonora, Calif.
I sure appreciate you and your skills, and the way you do business.Al H. - Twain Harte, Calif.
Thank you so much for your expertise and timely evaluation of our french door at our cabin in Pinecrest. We will not hesitate to call you in the future. The doors work perfectly!Dr. Tom G. - Modesto, Calif.
Thank you for helping me in a difficult situation.Robin - Sonora, Calif.
I asked this guy to help me out with new locks and keys on a cabin in the mountains. He was busy with some other job, but because I told him I was time constrained, he left the other job, drove an hour to meet me, and did the work quickly and well. He told me what I needed to know, and even took credit card payment on the spot. This was a great experience. I would absolutely recommend Allen's to anybody in Tuolumne county. If I see this guy again, I'd buy him a beer too.Enrique - Belmont, Calif.
On time. extremely professional, knowledgeable, well equipped vehicle. Allen provided options so I could make informed decisions. Highest recommendation !Joyce - Vacaville, Calif.
Allen did a great job. I just bought a new home and wanted to have all of my locks changed. He fit me in right away and was very efficient and reasonably priced. And he’s a nice guy, to boot! I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.Kristi J.
Allen has been my go to guy for years! He is as good as it gets. Always helpful, professional and great to work with! If I could go higher than 5 stars I would.Meg M.
Allen was recommended to us by our realtor so we called him as soon as we took possession of our new home. He was there literally within minutes and did exactly what we asked; changed all the locks and made us the keys we needed. Prompt, courteous and reasonable. Who can ask more in a mobile locksmith? Not us! Allen’s great! Highly recommend him for all your locksmith needs.L.M.
