Oday Kasim

Great customer service. Prompt and polite.

jay st

Fast, Friendly and professional! Called to check prices on rekeying locks and price was very reasonable and they were able to do the job right then. Thy were at my house within the time they said they would be 30-45 minutes, and were done even faster! Highly recommend using A-1 and will use again in the future!

J Payne

I seriously could not be any happier about my experience with this business today, I was already having a day where anything that could go wrong, did go wrong and then I locked my keys in my car. I was told I would be waiting about 20 minutes or so, but I swear she was there faster than that. When she arrived she was practically a super hero in my eyes because she popped my car open like it was nothing. Thank you so much for helping me out today! Fast, friendly service doesn't even begin to describe it.

Jake Moore

Returned to my apartment only to find I had lost my keys somewhere throughout the night. Called A-1 and Desmond arrived within 20 minutes of calling to help! He was professional and not scared of my "attack dog" I had waiting inside. He also has a good sense of humor to lighten the mood. Amazing service at a decent price for help when we desperately needed it. Highly recommended and ask for Desmond! Thank you for your help!

Ashton Strickler

Very pleasant to work with and they where very helpful and knowledgeable about my issue. Had lost my only set of car keys and they where able to get me a new one with my VIN and also gave me a printout of how to reprogram the new key.

April Boyd

My teen accidentally locked the keys in the car while it was still running. I called A-1 Locksmith Service LLC in Grand Rapids and they quickly took my information. A few minutes later the locksmith called and said he was on his way. Within about 15 minutes he was at our house and had the car unlocked moments later. The price was pretty reasonable and the service was excellent! I hope I won’t be needing a locksmith any time soon, but if ever the case, I will be definitely calling A-1!

Wendy Vriesman

Really appreciated the prompt service and friendly staff from the start. I called last night to try and find someone to help my family and I get back into our home after locking ourselves out. Oops. They had someone out within an hour. Desmond was very knowledgable and friendly and had us in our home with in 15 minutes. Very grateful for his prompt service, especially during the cold weather last night. My family of 4 thanks you!

Sara Catlett

Desmond provided us incredible service when we needed our home locks re-keyed after a break-in. He was able to arrive within 10-15 minutes of our call and was professional, efficient and friendly. He even helped secure a door latch that was not part of the work he had quoted us at no additional cost. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Linda DeFreese

Desmond did a great job. On time and quickly. Thank you.


A-1 Locksmith responded promptly to my call on Christmas day when I accidentally locked myself out of my home. They were friendly, professional, and diligent in checking identification and opening the door in less than 5 minutes. I would highly recommend their excellent customer service and quick response to anyone in any lock-out situation.

Brittany Ann

Lady I spoke to was very rude.

Sean Kirt

I am the Property Manager of the Mini Storage Depot in Wyoming, MI - we have used A-1's services a few times in the past 5 years. Desmond always arrives within 15 minutes of the call, is very friendly and does a great job for a great price. We highly recommend A-1 as well as Desmond's services!


I'm really pleased with the service I received with this company, and I would definitely use them again. Desmond was very pleasant, knowledgeable and incredibly accommodating. Thank you, for the great service!

Dan Norman

Excellent service and nice to deal with. Lost my F150 key in a lake (long story) and needed a new key programmed. Called at 6:20 and they waited for me and stay opened for me to come in. Very happy I called!

Jessica Novak

He unlocked my car BUT: Said they would be there in 15 minutes - took almost 30. The guy who showed up was rude and sketchy. He showed up in a beat up old car and had a ski mask on his face that he never took off. There was nothing making him or his car as an A-1 locksmith employee. At one point he said "I need this incase you try to rob me so that they know where I am and who I'm with." I don't even know what he was referring to. I was creeped out and couldn't wait to get in my car and leave.

Jessica Greene

Excellent service! We needed a key programmed for our F150 because we lost it and were over 200 miles from home. Pat was very friendly and helpful to speak with on the phone and Don was very professional and friendly to work with one on one. He got us back on the road in 15 minutes. Very reasonable prices, We would recommend them to everyone!

Sherri Field

Quick service and very affordable. The whole process took 10 minutes. Also Sierra was so accommodating. I will recommend the service to someone who has lost there key.

Jackie H

Quick service, great customer service.

David Dyakov

Got to a park in dwntwn grand Rapids and realized I locked my keys in the car. Well thanks to A1-locksmith they got to me quickly and opened my car in under a min. Very greatfull for the quick and efficient service. Great Job guys.

Robel Rezene

Great people! Quick to the scene and quick to finish the job right!

Joseph DeVitis

Just used these guys. Very quick to get to my car, open my door, and get me back on the road. Would recommend to anyone.

Crystal Bravo

My car key unfortunately will not open my car, so when I locked my car on accident 30 min before work I was stressed out. I called around to other locksmiths, one place said they'd be here in 8 hrs or so, at that point I would just have to call off of work! A-1 popped up in google so I called they answered promptly and took care of me. Desmond made it out to my house in 20 min and it took him 30 sec to open my car. Very professional and nice, I will always use and recommend A-1 as the best locksmith in town! Thanks Desmond!

Timothy Hirschberg

The locksmith (Desmond) was at our new house to change out all of the locks within twenty minutes from the time I called A-1 this Saturday. From the very beginning the front door's deadbolt proved to be FAR more challenging than either of us had anticipated, but he kept plugging away at it and was able to have it changed out along with the four other locks on the house. He admitted to never seeing a deadbolt quite like the one that proved so challenging, but in the end he did an excellent job finding a solution--even if it meant calling for locksmith "backup" at 5:30 on a Saturday afternoon. Toward the end I was a bit concerned that the deadbolt troubles would have significantly raised the final bill, but I was happily surprised at the reasonable charge at the end. Desmond was a great guy to work with, and I would gladly recommend him and A-1 to anyone.

Laura Wilson

Prompt, professional service. I would definitely use them again.

Mercedes Barragan

Fast and friendly! Good price and I had few laughs with Desmond! Highly recommend!

Liz Merriman

Wonderful, speedy service. I called them in a pinch and they delivered. The crew Pat and Desmond, were friendly, professional and well prepared! Couldn't recommend them highly enough.

Eleanor Tabler

Excelletnt service. Arrived at the exact time they said they would! Very pleased!

Michelle Greco

I have used them 3 times now for different problems. They are always quick and do a great job. I would recommend to everyone.

Stacey R

Fast and friendly service BUT the service was overpriced compared to others in town. I was just getting basic key service- cost about $50 more than I expected. I wonder if they overcharge because they are aware its a company paying for it? Regardless, it was fast and the guy was super nice.

Blake Noll

Words can't express how grateful am! Called around many places and said they couldn't help me. Called A-1 and they had me up and going in just over an hour! They went out of their way to get me back up and on the road!! Only place I would recommend. :) Thanks again!!

Jen Q

I locked my keys inside of my running car the other night. It was sort of late and I figured it would be at least $100 for someone to come out and help me. I was so pleased to find A-1!! They were quick and efficient and so affordable. Desmond was extremely very professional and I could tell how much he cared about his business and his clients. Pat was great too!! Thanks A-1! I will for sure pass your name along.

Todd Freeman

Last fall, I walked away from my table at a bar for about 15 minutes, and returned to find my car keys missing. The bartender explained he'd found them- but had already given them away to some drunkard! After a day or two of calling back the bar and other businesses in the area to no avail, I called around and learned A-1 would be able to make a new key on the spot. They arrived, as promised within 30 min of my initial call, and about 30 min after that had fabricated a new key for my vehicle. The price was very reasonable for their immediate turnaround, if you're ever in a similar bind call that A-1 !

Dan Hammersmith

Fast, efficient, and fair service late on a Saturday night. Polite and professional.

Valeria Guzman

I was able to get someone the same day! Very fast and clean.

Codi Rettig

A-1 was the third "24 hour" locksmith I called, and the only one who answered on a Sunday. They were very fast and helpful. Pat took down my information and explained to me what would have to be done to replace my lost key. When Desmond, the locksmith, got there the snow was so bad that he had to park nearly two blocks away. Even after walking through the snow he was super pleasant, and fixed my problem really quickly. I would definitely recommend A-1 for anyone's lock and key problems.

Frances Schermers

A-1 sent Ross out, and he was there within half an hour, unlocked our vehicle, and was on his way again in no time. We're grateful for his calm and professional service.

Curtis Ludtke

I was locked out of my house on a Sunday afternoon. I called 4 places and all were unwilling to help in a timely fashion. I called A-1, they were there within 30 minutes and i was in my house 5 minutes after that. I would recommend them to anyone in the Grand Rapids area that needs help. Great service, fair price and a timely response.

Tact1cal Banana

Locksmith Drove all the way to Caledonia in a snow storm and still made decent time. Service was quick and cheap. It was only 70 bucks to open my car door.

Adam Bialecki

A-1 was great! Great customer service! I would definitely recommend them if you lock yourself out of your car!

Carol Echols

This was the first time I used A1 Locksmith and they were great. They were fast friendly and efficient. They kept me updated on the arrival time. The tech did a great job.

Emilee Cnossen

Great, speedy service! Especially on a holiday weekend!! Thanks for your help.

Ethan Cortazzo

Trash. Find another LockSmith. Plenty of other competitors that are half the price and have better customer service.

Sarah Van Dyke

I was very pleased with my experience with A-1. Desmond was very pleasant and demonstrated admirable integrity as he helped me find the most economical solution to my problem rather than the one that would bring the most profit.

Bruce E.

Very professional, helped me fast spur of moment call. They came same day. Thank you A-1 Locksmith!

Antonio Ray Jr

They were quick and their prices were reasonable. Within an hour our car door was unlocked!

Miranda Christensen

I locked my keys in my car at my house. After calling roadside assistance with Geico I was left without any help. I was told all companies were unavailable and that I might try contacting my local police dept. that sometimes the police are trained to unlock cars. After several hours I finally found a company who was willing to drive 45 minutes to help me. I was outside their area but they still helped. It was late and dark outside but Ross was friendly and helpful. He was able to open my car quickly. I am thankful they agreed to help. He was professional. The staff I talked to on the phone was kind and helpful. I highly recommend them. I will be using them in the future and will recommend them to all!

Janelle Wolfman

FABULOUS CUSTOMER SERVICE! They were willing to quickly help me with my baby that was locked in a room :-) I so appreciate their willingness to respond- they rearranged their schedule to make room for me and I am super thankful. They are the kind of company you want to give your business to.

Nickolas P.

I locked myself out of my house and contacted them to pick the lock on my door. Within fifteen minuted -probably closer to ten- someone was at my house and the door was unlocked five minutes later. The locked was saved and the staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing I can't vouch for is the price. It was $80 and I have no clue whether that is good or bad as this was the only company I contacted.

Kristie Self

I have been very impressed with A-1. Twice I have needed to hire a locksmith to change locks because of area break-ins. The first time was in the evening. I didn't have much hope of finding anyone that could come out quickly, or that would even be open after 5:00. A few phone calls confirmed this. Finally, I came across the number for A-1. I called and not only were they open, but they were able to come out that night and install the new locks. They were very friendly and professional, the work was done well, and I was very pleased. The second time I called A-1 was on a weekend and was also for a lock change. My experience was just as good as the first time. They were open, they were able to come out right away, and they were very professional. I would hire them again without hesitation.

Mrs Garcia

They were great, fast, and the cheapest I found!! Replaced my chip key!!

Travis Mandenberg

I had an ignition key that was breaking for my car. The dealership was unable to print off a copy that worked and somehow they made a working copy of a bent cracked key that was already a copy of the original.

Alyssa Bodrie

This was the worst and most expensive lock company I have ever experienced. My husband and I left for our honeymoon and parked our car at a hotel that would shuttle us to the airport. When we got home our key fob wouldn't work, so we had his parents pick us up since it was late. They live an hour away. We call the company the next day and explained the situation and they said give us a call when you are back at the car and we will drive out there. We drive an hour back to the car and then they tell us it is going to be an hour and a half wait for them to get there. Thay turned into 4 hours of waiting and once they finally arrived the new fob wouldn't work so they said to come back the next day. Mind you, this is during the week so everyone has to work. The next day took another 3 hours and they still charged us full price. Not happy, horrible service and communication.

Hans D

People where so friendly and got my new key super quick. It's also a lot less expensive than a dealership doing it.

Josh Brand

I have never experienced such terrible customer service. The company's business card stated 24/7 lock out services. I locked my keys in the car in Grand Rapids and they stated no one could service me because they were only servicing downtown. I then asked if she could refer another place and she asked if I went on Google with an attitude. I told her no, they were the first service I called. She then asked if I googled a service she named and once again I told her I had not been on Google. Her attitude was horrible and I will never use this service again and neither will anyone I recommend a lock service to in Grand Rapids.

Trevor H.

These guys are magnificent!! First, they came out on a Saturday night at 9:30 and what was to be a short, quick fix turned out to be quite a long ordeal but they stayed, fixed everything and were extremely pleasant. But it gets better... he ended up having to take off the exterior door handle and file down the key all while their radiator in their car blew. I will most certainly use them in the future for lockout service again!! I'm also going to use them to get my locks replaced in the near future. Quick transaction as well. Very great, polite, professional, good people!!

Timothy Gombis

I had locked my key in my car and Desmond and his assistant came promptly and cheerfully opened it for me. Quick and pleasant service!

Kori Lyn Price

Today is my second encounter with the wonderful people at A1! First was this last summer, my best friend lost her Keys. A1 drove to our location and was able to not only unlock her car but make her new Keys on the spot! They were fast and very reasonably priced! Today I am simply getting a couple Keys made for my 07 Grand Prix! They are wonderful and highly recommend!!

Taylor Bolleber

A1 locksmith is awesome! Very friendly, helpful, and quick. Thanks so much!

Breanne Filker

Get service. Fast response and provided accurate truck key for a single lost key.

Cam Lewis

I managed to lock the only key to the padlock on our film crew's grip truck the last day of a three week shoot. It was an hour and a half until call time and i had already ruined a pair of bolt cutters and exhausted the rest if my knowledge of locks (none) to no avail. I was at my wit's end and called another locksmith first. They couldnt get to me for another 3 hours. My second call was to A1 Locksmiths. Technicians were at my location within 30 minutes of me calling. They were quick, courteous, and professional and were able to save my padlock

Doug Jan

Desmond and Pat were great to work with. We needed a padlock cut from a shed. They gave me an accurate quote, suggested we might be better off (cheaper) renting a tool. We opted to have Desmond come anyway. He was very nice, quick, and the price was as quoted. We will call A-1 next time we need a locksmith.

Scott McDowell

My daughter locked herself out of the house while we were out of town , called A1 and they were at our home in Lowell within 40 minutes to get her in(on a Saturday morning). Only charged 150$--- I would of charged more if I was the business. Awesome service! If there were 6 stars--- they earned it.

Emily Hudson

Desmond was fantastic! He was very friendly and got me back on the road in no time!

Elizabeth Rexroat

We are so thankful for your service. Our locksmith was timely, professional, and kind. Thank you so much for rescuing our day!

Ashley Hemmes

Pat was wonderful on the phone and kept me updated on when the locksmith would arrive. When he showed up, he was polite and courteous and seemed like he had no issue getting my car remote programmed. And no hidden fees when I paid him! Wonderful customer service! Definitely going to call them if I need help again!

Julie Herrema

Very helpful on the phone, came quickly and were friendly. Pat & Desmond were reassuring and worked fast to get my car back open when I locked my keys inside. From the time I made the call, my keys were out in 30min. Great service!

Heidi Storms

I recently locked my keys in my car in a store parking lot. It was at night time, but A-1 was very quick to respond, and had my car open in less than 2 minutes. Very friendly too! I will definitely use them again.

Janah Y

Neat and orderly. Exactly what I needed.

Sarybet Gonzalez

Absolutely would recommend A1 Locksmith to people. Great Customer Service, fast, and RELIABLE!!!! The process is very easy and the prices are super cheap! They are mobile and you won't have to pay towing fees. LOVE!! LOVE!! LOVE THEIR SERVICE!!!

Elizabeth Schenk

Locked my keys in the house today and called A-1. Desmond and his assistant arrived at my house within 20 minutes of me calling... and it was late afternoon on a Saturday. They were both SO friendly, came up to the house smiling and I felt very comfortable with them. Can't thank A-1 enough for saving the day today :)

Aric DeGroot

After calling 4 other locksmith services in Grand Rapids on a sunday morning locked out of my running car and hearing multiple excuses about why my car was "most likely" un-lockable, I contacted A-1. They had no excuses for me and when I mentioned what the other companies had brought up, they simply stated that they could at least try. Within 15 minutes they arrived at my location and in under 5 minutes had me driving. To say they performed fantastically would be an understatement. Highly recommended!! Thanks Desmond and Pat!

Mike Bartlett

Locked myself & the family out of the house, and these guys showed up promptly & professionally and had a new lock installed in 15 minutes.

Nickolas Dayz

I called to ask a question about laser cutting a key, and they didnt even bother to answer the phone. I sat and waited for them to pick up and when I thought they wandered they hung up on me. Over awful service

Kemal Tekinel

I needed help to get my kids car key issue resolved - they were very helpful and responsive with their service.

Ann N.

We just arrived from out of state, pulled up to our new home on a Sunday evening, and realized we had the wrong keys. A-1 showed up in 10 minutes. Such nice people. They knew exactly what to do. Took no time at all. They are now my 'go to' locksmiths.

Horizen Hydroponics

Fast friendly service. Got two keys cut and programmed in less than a half-hour for a very reasonable price! My new go-to locksmith.

Briana Martinez

The man they sent did an amazing job. He unlocked my car (which I'd left running.. -_-) in about a minute and got there relatively quickly, despite being in a weird location surrounded by bad roads. Worth the money.

chris frye

I ordered a new key FOB through the website recommended by A-1. I called them after receiving it, and they came to me the same day, programmed it in 10 minutes, and charged a VERY reasonable fee.
