Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely. Your realtor has no way of knowing whether or not those are the only two keys available for the house. Additionally, the keys given to you by the realtor may not necessarily open all the doors your new house. In many cases the keys used by the realtor to open the front door will open only the front door, because the front door locks were changed for the convenience of showing the house, and not necessarily to secure it.

Absolutely! Keep in mind, however, that my usual guarantee will not apply in such cases. My  guarantee on all new hardware only applies to such hardware purchased from, and installed by, me! I will, of course, guarantee the function of such locks relative to any keying, master-keying, or the accuracy of the actual installation. Any future malfunctioning of the actual locking mechanisms or hardware itself in these cases shall be the sole responsibility of the manufacturer, or of the retail establishment at which the items were purchased.

Sure, I could. But that would take me away from my clients, and I really don’t want that to happen. The trouble is, that I really love what I do for a living– I love meeting my clients, I love hearing their stories, I love seeing the look of satisfaction on their faces when they see that I have made their problem go away, when they see that their house is buttoned up securely. And they love my slogan

“I answer the phone
I do all of the work, and I guarantee it.”

A2Z Locksmith, Inc. was incorporated in August of 1998, and has been continuously in business under that name since that time. Feel free to check this information with the Florida division of corporations, and you will see this to be true. I have been told that many companies will go to the trouble of changing their company name and status in order to avoid the ramifications of lawsuits, trade name infringements, and the like. Personally, I take great pride in the reputation of my company, and in the services that I provide, and I plan to remain in this business for a long time to come (with your continuing support).
No, never. And I consider my liability insurance to be money well-wasted.
That’s a common misperception. Master keys can be used for various purposes, and are generally set up in such a way that they will open locks related to keys of a specific group. For example, if you wanted to give a house key to your cleaning lady, you could masterkey a lock in your home to permit her access to that one particular door, while your MASTER KEY continues to open every door in the house! Another advantage is that you only need to rekey one cylinder if your cleaning lady ever leaves your employ—not the entire house!
In many, many thousands of jobs, I have yet to unintentionally destroy a lock merely by picking it open. Nor am I one of those locksmiths who intentionally sets out to destroy a lock so that I can sell you a new one (or three, or five). So don’t worry — I always give my client an opportunity to check the lock with their existing key once I get them back inside of their house, or their car, or whatever. Your lock will be perfectly fine once I’m done with it.
I do just about anything you can imagine you one might possibly do with a lock or key. Click Here to find a list of services, which, although it is by no means complete, will give you a fairly good idea of what you might expect when you call my company.
Actually, I travel all over the county on a fairly regular basis. Although a good portion of my work involves traveling to Davie, Cooper City, Southwest Ranches, Plantation, and Sunrise, I have also run many jobs ranging from Parkland and Coral Springs to Hollywood, Miramar, Wilton Manors, and Victoria Park. Don’t worry — I’m usually all over the County on any given day, so coming out to your house will be my pleasure.

Customer Reviews

Thirty minutes after I locked myself out of my office, Valerie got me back inside. She told me to grab a cup of coffe while I waited, she gave me a five minute heads-up before arriving, and we met at the office simultaneously. She had the lock picked in 30 seconds, and I was back to work. I have used this woman’s services for ten years, and she has never let me down. What else can I say?

Mike Sherman, Fort Lauderdale, FL
They bailed me out today when I got locked out of my delivery truck in a HORRIBLE neighborhood. Very dependable and very affordable,…
Frank Smith, Fort Lauderdale, FL
I live on the Intracoastal Waterway, and all of my dockside locks stopped functioning. A2Z came out and disassembled, cleaned, and lubricated them , and now they all operate. perfectly. Thank you, Valerie.

A very reliable company– and extremely reasonable in price. They paid close attention to every detail of the work– a beautiful job.
L. Kohn, Weston
I locked myself out of my car at 6:30 AM today, and at 7:00 I was back in business. Sorry I had to wake you up so early, Val, but I was desperate. And thanks again for the quick rescue.
Liz, Cooper City, FL
I’ve used this locksmith three times in the last two years to service my home and business. She has always been on time, and an absolute professional– a real surprise in this day and age.
Monica Merritt, Southwest Ranches, FL
When I called on New Years Day for emergency service this woman came out to help me even though they were closed for the day. I can never thank her enough for getting me out of a tough situation.

This company bailed me out on Christmas Eve, and the woman DID NOT take unfair advantage of the situation. Definitely someone who can be trusted in an emergency.
Ignacio Savanna, Weston
A REAL LOCKSMITH! She had proof of licensing, insurance, bonding. She gave me an ETA and arrived on time. She was professional, presentable, articulate, and VERY knowledgeable, and replaced a part on my front door lock which other people had told me would need to be replaced. I am pleased to have met Valerie, and recommend her highly.
Denise V, Wilton Manors, FL
VAL is an efficient, reliable and HONEST locksmith. I have used Valerie several times in the last ten years. (She) most recently came to my house in April 2013 to change the locks in my front door to prevent an individual who had the key reentering the premises. On short notice she arrived and not only changed the locks and made duplicate keys, but replaced a broken lockset on my bathroom door and rekeyed a lock on my upstairs office. VAL always spends time explaining the pros and cons of a solution and offers other alternatives when feasible so that the customer receives the best deal possible. Her prices are ‘ value based’ and leave you with a feeling of security when she completes a job. She always looks out for her customers and has no fear of ( large) dogs, which is a real plus for me…
Maryanne, Miramar, FL
My neighbor was having some lock work done, and I asked the locksmith if she could make a key for the drawer locks on some pre-owned office furniture I’d bought. After she finished her work she came over to my office and filed down a key by hand– and it worked like a charm ! And everyone else I’d spoken to said it was just a waste of time… Thank you Miss Valerie…
Donna Arnold, Tamarac
Our young daughter has become an escape artist who will unlock a door and make a run for it any time she thinks shes not being watched. Today we babyproofed our front door, sliding doors, and garage doors to keep Miss Houdini safely inside. thanks to Valerie’s creative solutions.
J.S., Lighthouse Point, FL
When I lost my key ring I called A2Z Locksmith and Val came to my business and changed out the keys for me, and then met my sister at my house to rekey all the locks there. The work was great and the price was very reasonable– I am very satisfied..
Kristen Cummings, Miramar, FL
We were taking a family trip to Grandma’s house for Thanksgiving, and brought food for the twelve of us. Grandma came outside to welcome us all and the door locked behind her. We were stuck in the driveway with a ham, a turkey and two mini vans full of kids. We called Valerie at A2Z and she came out in under 20 minutes– and she picked the lock in like five seconds !! A2Z Locksmith saved our Thanksgiving Day
